The night was lovely. We were driven to where Vlad believed we would be able to meet the conditions to see auroras and waited for them near a campfire he set up after our arrival. During the wait Vlad gave us tea and cake, and he then shared with us a lot of scientifical knowledge regarding the northern lights. After a few minutes waiting we got a patch of clear sky, and then a plethora of auroras of many intensities, many of which were visible to the naked eye very brightly. We tested Vlad's patience by asking him lots of photos with the auroras, but he was more than happy to take them for us. Without Vlad's expertise and knowledge, as well as his willingness to take photos of our group we wouldn't have been able to see any auroras and have such a memorable experience. I can't recommend this tour enough. If you are doubtful about it just book it!

Our driver/a friendly tour guy was real helpful and tried so hard to show us the northern lights.We were not so lucky to see it properly as the weather was terrible and didn’t meet the forecast expectations.On the website it says they provide thermals but they didn’t so I would recommend to put loads of clothes layers as me and my bf did. The only big minus is that the van wasn’t comfortable…you couldn’t even move your hands properly,squeezed by other 3 people for at least 6 h :/ Overall the company is good if the weather is nice and sky is clear but they should reduce amounts of passengers so you can feel a bit more comfortable :) Big plus for friendly staff

The weather was not on our side on our trip and decided to be the best villain possible. Horvia was our guide for the evening. After about an hour of driving Horvia stopped immediately because he discovered the northern lights between the clouds so that we all could take the best possible photos. After we arrived to our destination we set up a fire and had some very nice cake and get to know each other. But it was too cloudy and began to snow so Horvia decided to move on. Despite our hope was gone Horvia did not gave up and drove us to 3 different stops. And at the very end the northern lights appeared again. Horvia was the best guy ever. He was super careful and wanted to make sure that we had the best possible experience. This trip is set for 6 hours, and he extended this trip for 2 hours to make sure we could see at least a glimpse and he managed to get good photos for us. I highly recommend this trip since you are underway with a true expert. All it needs is a little bit of luck.
