The coach was comfortable, and left promptly. The guide was informative (but if you weren't a native English speaker, the information would have been difficult to take in). Because there were so many non-native English speakers, maybe they didn't understand the information given about keeping any lights to a minimum and keeping them down because when we got to the dark place where we were able to see the aurora, it was impossible to get pictures because of all their lights, and people moving about in front of us. Took us into Finland where the skies were clearer so that we did get to see the Aurora.

We traveled in a big coach all the way to the Finnish border. Unfortunately, it wasn't the best night to see the lights, so it was a lot of waiting around for not being able to see much. But our guide Christian was very good and helpful in every way. He showed everyone how to take the best pictures.
