Very friendly and helpful guide but unfortunately we didn’t get to see the northern lights there was too much clouds about we did see a white light that kept rising and dropping then it rose and spread across the sky I photographed it and in the photo it looked as if there was a small amount of colour

We were picked up on time from the hotel and drove to Santa Claus Village to change shoes, it was so magically lit, then drove in two groups to a frozen lake, great starry sky, we stayed late and hoped. Through the camera, I saw the pilar lights earlier, unlucky. It was freezing cold, didn't see much else but laughed a lot, happy atmosphere, very nice support. Warm juice and cookies, colorful international group. Thank you for the lovely evening

It was great fun. Unfortunately it was cloudy and there were no northern lights to be seen. We were picked up exactly at the pick up time. We went to the office for extra clothes. After that we had three stops. 1 at a large lake, 1 at a beautiful river with bridge and 1 with a beautiful view where we started making a campfire. We were allowed to enjoy hot drinks and delicious cookies. We had a friendly and sociable guide.
