It was a very nice activity, we were lucky to see the Nothern Lights. The guide was super nice and did his best to entertain us during the whole activity time. Much interesting information was provided by him, so the adventure was not only lovely but also educational. I liked the place we were taken, the beautiful lake with nice facilities, where was possible to warm up a little during waiting for the Aurora. The food was also excellent.

Beautiful evening, between the Northern Lights that were already waiting for us as soon as we got off the bus, the picnic on the frozen lake, the chat with people from all over the world and the sympathy of the guide Laura. In short, despite -20 degrees I felt so much warmth and friendliness!

This agency is working with big groups, in particular for this activity. We took a bus (50-60 people) to a lake, 25min drive, fires were made where soup, berryjuice, sausages and marshmellows were cooked (or you had to cook yourself). There was a good atmosphere and the guides were very helpful. We were lucky to see the northern lights. We were not the only group on this spot on the lake. If you do not like big groups, or want a more private northern lights hunt, better book a different activity, or with other agencies who work with smaller groups
