    My wife and I did the Northern Lights Hunting with BBQ experience with “Nordic Unique Travels”. It was an amazing experience, specially due to our incredible guide Matias with his teammates Zoé and Kun. The night started a bit cloudy but Matias did the impossible to “hunt” the Northern Lights. It would have been a great experience for the price even without the Aurora Boreal part, but they did overdeliver despite the weather conditions… and the results: in the photos attached. Congratulations, super recommended and I will repeat (with the same guide).

    A very nice activity! Unfortunately we didn’t see the northern lights but that is a chance you take. Our gids Louis informed us really well about all kinds of topics and answered all our questions. The bbq was nice as we sat around the fire and grilled the sausage’s ourselves

    Our guide was Matias, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the northern lights, explained exactly how they form, he was also super friendly and it was like hanging out with an old friend! We unfortunately didn’t manage to see the lights as it was too cloudy but we still had a great time. We had a BBQ with grilled sausages, salmon soup warmed up by the fire, hot berry juice and then some sweet snacks including marshmallows. It really was great even if we didn’t manage to see the lights, we spent about 2 or 3 hours outdoors warming by the fire, and learning about Rovaniemi. Really recommend this tour, thank you Matias!
