After all day with clear and pink skies, unfortunately the clouds arrived in the evening. The guides immediately advised us that the night was not suitable for seeing the Northern Lights, however we still tried to go to 3 places away from the light. We didn't see anything, but we had fun talking in front of a fire with good tea and marshmallows! Finally after trying, we saw her the next evening without a guide, our last evening in Lapland <3

Was unfortunately unable to see the Northern Lights due to poor visibility/weather conditions, but overall pleasant experience. Our guide was very professional, friendly and very passionate about the Northern Lights. He provided a lot of explanation about how the Northern Lights come about, and was constantly on the lookout for where we could best catch it. We lived slightly outside of the city centre, and were picked up and dropped off at our accomms. Provided with overalls and winter boots, which were very handy in the cold weather. Guide built a fire, and also offered us hot berry juice and some snacks (biscuits and marshmallows).
