This was a very peaceful way to look for the northern lights. I've also been on minibus northern lights hunts and you spend a lot of time on the bus. With the boat, we were quickly away from the city lights and floating on the water. The only problem was getting clear pictures of the northern lights, because the boat moves.

It was great to see the Northern Lights in such a small group. The guides were very nice and tried very hard, the boat was very cozy and heated. You could go on deck at any time. Freshly cooked on board - all in all a great trip and of course wonderful to see the northern lights

Really easy booking process, we had to cancel / rebook some of our tours due to a delayed flight and it was really easy to do, making travelling so much less stressful. We used PayPal and the refund was back in our account within 24 hours! The boat trip was magical and we saw the Northern Lights for the first time, which was an incredible experience - I t’s a really special and peaceful way to view them from the boat. The crew were brilliant, knowledgable and fun and provided a delicious home-made fish stew! Overall would highly recommend this tour for a very different way to view the beautiful Northern Lights!
