This was a well organised activity. Our guide Andrea was knowledgeable with regards to Northern Lights activities and how they come about and shared that information in an easy to understand manner. The locations our guide took us to would've been excellent had the Northern Lights been active, but unfortunately they weren't. Andrea took us to a few spots in the hope of being able to capture something however nature doesn't work in accordance with a human's schedule so it was always going to be a lottery as the KP index forecast were quite low.

Well organised trip with the guide, Maurizio, thinking of every detail. We knew it was not taken for granted to see the light, but we were lucky. What came as a bonus above my expectations, was that we were offered photos from the event to be sent by mail.
