What people are saying about Norrbotten County

Amazing experience. Onur and all the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable. They will do everything in their power to let you see the Northern Lights, and they know all the best spots. I had one night in Abisko to try to see the lights, and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend it any other way. The food was delicious as well. Highly recommend, I’ve already told several friends to use Light of Vikings if they want to see the Northern Lights.

Very nice tour. The food at the BBQ was delicious and they offered both a meat dish and a vegetarian alternative. We received a lot of interesting information about the Northern Lights from the guides before we went in search of the lights. A perfect spot was chosen from which we could view the spectacle. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

The BBQ was good and Onur and Dimi are awesome guides. Unfortunately we were only able to attend one evening. The two made it possible to find a spot to see the Northern Lights on what seemed like a bad day. I can only recommend the tour.

A great tour with incredibly nice guides. Joel and his wife explain everything really well and we had a lot of fun on the tour. We can wholeheartedly recommend it

The tour and guides were great. Sadly, we didn’t get to see the Northern Lights, but they tried so hard! Too much cloud cover due to an incoming storm.
