It was a great experience. We have aurora borealis. And in addition the show lasted for 1 hour. We were very lucky. Our Guide Harry and our driver Martin were great. Harry taught us a lot about the Northern Lights and he made sure we didn't see any. Martin drove us just in time to enjoy the show and cooked us the meal. As a bonus, Harry took a picture of us with the Northern Lights with his super camera. No regrets to have chosen this experience :) .

My girlfriend and I went on the trip despite bad aurora forecasts. The guide Harry was great! He made everything possible for us to see the northern lights and had a plan A, B and C before we drove. We drove to plan A which was out on a frozen lake, shortly after we had to drive on to a beach where we caught the light and had a fight where we grilled sausages! It was amazing! Thanks to a great guide and driver! Our evening was so nice!
