I asked them to pick me up because it was a small group, but there were about 6 people in the car. When I went to a place where I could see the aurora, there were about 30 tourists and we were divided into English and French and enjoyed a barbecue. Didn't see the aurora, but it wasn't bad

We went on this excursion on 31.12.22, unfortunately we weren't lucky enough to see the Northern Lights as it was snowing, but still everything was magical. They took us by bus away from the center of Rovaniemi to a frozen lake, explained how the Aurora phenomenon occurs, after which we entered a kota where they lit a fire and cooked our New Year's dinner: sausages, frankfurters, salmon and potato soup, rye bread and marshmallows! Then, before returning, they lit fireworks for us... A unique experience!
