    I can not recommend more. Really enjoy whole trip. Conditions on sea were little bit tough, however worthy - we see couple of orcas (warm and water proof clothes are essential) Stay in Lavva and polar light were just amazing, not only because aura itself but also because very nice and friendly staff taking care of us. Highly recommended!

    The most amazing experience we could imagine. Whale tour was incredible, we saw so many whales it's unbelievable. Even the bus tour to Skjervoy was great with so many amazing views. Stay in lavvos was a cherry on top - we saw Northern Lights for 2 hours, got a few photos with the aurora, had great homemade food... I really can't recommend it enough.

    Unfortunately, the whale watching boat trip was canceled due to bad weather. That was a great shame, of course, but safety comes first. We were then able to rebook at short notice for a snowmobile trip followed by an overnight stay. The transport works flawlessly and is super organized. The overnight stay in the Lavvu is just great! In the middle of nature, spartan, but super cozy. Despite the bad weather forecast, we spent most of the evening outside. Behind the lavvus is a small hill from which you can watch the sky very well. We were lucky and the long wait was rewarded with wonderful northern lights. You should definitely take a flashlight or headlamp with you, as it is pitch dark at around 4 p.m.
