Totally recommended! First of all, it was -32 C degrees outside. Therefore, it was awesome that they provided us with clothing and transport! Before chasing the northern lights we had a great dinner (seriously, best reindeer we’ve had in Sweden!). We totally enjoyed the campfire, tea and the Aurora! Thanks Onur for the spot with the clearest sky and Cristina for amazing photos!
