We had a wonderful experience thanks to Andrei. We saw amazing dancing Northern lights, unforgettable. Whilst we were waiting, Andrei shared tons of information about the lights, area and star systems - which was fantastic. He also took amazing photos of us under the Northern Lights. A truly great experience and we recommend Andrei's tour 100% to everyone who is interested in a personal, unique tour.

Incredible, tour on November 15 with Andrei. Great driver over the worst conditions, even snow, great knowledge of the area, he found us a magical and clear place. Throughout the activity he was attentive and made many explanations. With the magic of the auroras, Andrei took spectacular photos of us that he delivered to us first thing in the morning the next day. We definitely recommend it.
