Excellent tour which was fairly priced. We caught the northern lights on the day of a clear sky and scored some excellent pictures. Our guide also helped us with some pictures on his camera, and sent us a link to download them after the trip too. He was very experienced with the Aurora sighting spots, and made sure we were comfortable with thermals if needed, as well as a small campfire with hot drinks after. Highly recommend.

Amazing! Our guide told us we wouldn't have a high chance of seeing the lights, but blitzed it straight to Finland. It was a long journey but so worth it. We were lucky enough to see the lights, enjoy hot chocolate and get cozy in the thermal suits. It had been cloudy and snowing so much all day we were worried we wouldn't see them. Definitely worth the risk!

This tour is all about clear vision. We drove 2 hours through heavy snowfall and then suddenly the Northern Lights were right in front of us. If necessary, we would have gone to Finland. You can grill at home. Great photos.

Very nice tour. Unfortunately we did not manage to see the Northern Lights, however the driver did what every was possible, really appreciate it.

Had fun chasing lights. Guide made it more fun, effective communication.
