Full description
Words simply cannot justify the sight of this spectacular phenomenon and it’s an experience that you will never forget. By traveling in a minibus you get the benefit of a smaller group (maximum 17-18 people per tour) and your guide will try to avoid the crowds for the best spot available.  First off, the hunt for the northern lights will start with a bit of pre-planning via the aurora forecast and the exploration will begin by heading in that direction. Sometimes the lights want to be chased and that is all part of the fun. If you don't manage to spot them, the tour will keep on trying until you do. The northern lights tour has been created for you to experience an unforgettable natural light display and take away everlasting memories.

    It was the second time looking for the northern lights. With the naked eye all we saw was a white long area in the sky unfortunately. Those with good cameras could see the colour. We had iPhone 11 and a Cannon camera. A bit disappointing as we paid £270 sterling for 4. We did other trips which were much better value so it might be better value combining it in a tour with other sights.

    The tour was changed by weather due to weather, they changed it for the next day. They were late for us. The auroras could not be seen because of the weather, the very normal guide (it was not bad but not the best), we only made 2 stops and a tour that is supposed to last 5 hours we returned after 3
