    Well in short it was an amazing experience with or without the Northern lights. We got packed in warm clothes from the company so that we survive the cold. Then we went to the location by the river with a full moon but covered with cloud above us. there were bonfires so we had hot berry juice, cookies and bbq marshmallows. The day had a very strong activity for the light show but then the sky was covered with snow. The company waited for the sky to clear more than the assigned time of the trip. More than half of the group left after few hours because of the cold. Right after their departure the sky cleared up for 20 mins and we saw Aurora borealis. Stronger than the night before what an out of the world experience when you expect the least. We also had a forest hike under the moonlight to the nearby forest before that.

    Everything was perfect. The excursion was like they planning. Nigth was cold and they did a fire for heating up us. They help us with the configuration for the cameras. Besides, we were with the kids and they let us know to stay inside the car for being even more warm.

    The guide called on the agreed day (Monday) to indicate that it was unlikely that we would see the Northern Lights that day (and the day after). They suggested postponing the trip to Wednesday. This turned out to be a golden opportunity: we were able to see the Northern Lights for over an hour, fantastic! Tip: plan this trip as early as possible in your stay, so that you can switch to the next day if this proves necessary due to weather conditions.
