    The overall experience is great, and I can finally see the Aurora after a long journey! However, I am not happy with one thing: the condition of the bus is a bit poor and disappointing, no light and the toilet is not well functioning. I hope it can be improved to make the journey perfect.

    We got to see the Northern Lights which was certainly a tick off the bucket list. Friendly guide and driver. Lack of toilet on a 7 hour trip was a test. Weather was outside of guide control but can only stress to bring plenty of layers in case the wind was blistering like it was for us. I am no professional photographer but this may be more suited to those with interest as it gave lots of tips of how to capture them on phone and professional cameras. As we only had phones it was a little wasted on us. Probably should have taken a tripod for better pictures but the positive is you get a copy of the guides pics to take away as memory.

    We were picked up in a very luxurious, very comfortable mini bus. After 2 hours of driving, we stopped at a first spot, we waited 10-15 minutes and the aurora borealis appeared twice in a row. We then went to another spot and there it was magic, the sky was on fire. We are very happy with this experience. The guide and driver were very friendly.
