Barbara was wonderful. He searched for us the aurora in several places without getting tired and without being discouraged. Thanks to his perseverance we finally found our Northern Lights. The photos arrived promptly the next morning. The clothing was also very comfortable and warm.

What an amazing experience. Once in a lifetime. I strongly advise you to do this activity. It's not a short walk, quite the contrary. You'll go sledding through a deep snow-covered forest for a long time. Simply unbelievable. I recommend!
