    This was such an amazing experience! The forest area and lakes we walked through were so beautiful at night, covered with snow. The little teepee we spent time in was amazing, with the campfire for cooking sausages. It didn't look like we were going to see the Northern lights, but I still loved the experience and then right before we left at midnight, we caught a little glimpse and got some amazing photos. It was an incredible night!

    It was such a nice experience! My friends and I had a great time. Luka is a very good guide and gave us great explanations about the norden lights. The photos he took were amazing, also the way to the place to see those and the food he prepared for us. I would repeat for sure and I've already told some friends to go with this company if they ever want to see the norden lights in Finland.

    It was our Day 1 in Rovaneimi. The day was very sunny but evening sky was cloudy and also Aurora forecast was not promising. But with the guidance of our amazing guide Kartia we managed to witness the dancing Aurora over the frozen River of Kemi. It was totally unexpected and spectacular to be part of this amazing memory. Also we had camp fire along with BBQ Sausage and chitchats. Thank you so much Kartia for your through experience and overwhelming guidance and the beautiful photographs that you have taken for us. Hope to avail this tour very soon.
