Lappish Evening of fun!
, Dec 2021
The guides were amazing. Great experience even though we didn’t get to see the lights, the guides made sure we were entertained!
Good outdoor experience away from city lights

We travelled in a mini-van about half hr away from Rov to an isolated spot in the woods on a frozen lake. Warm overalls and snow boots are offered to each traveller at the depart location in town. Upon arrival, we hear about what the aurora are and how they form. While waiting for the aurora, we sit inside a cozy teepee and cook our own sausage (or corn cob for vegetarians) over a fire. Warm berry tea is also offered. Salmon soup is cooked by the tour operators and also shared around. We were able to catch a slight glimpse of faint auroras. No predicting if/when auroras will happen but is still an enjoyable night to be outdoors by the fire with some warming local food

En quelques mots : retard au départ , perte de temps en cours de route pour passer à l’agence , barbecue qui n’a que le nom de barbecue , une miserable saucisse sans pain dans un papier essui tout , un verre de soupe de soi disant saumon et qui n’était que du poisson blanc , des aurores boréales ? Je sais que c’est comme la pêche , on gagne pas à tous les coups , mais quand n vous dis qu’elles sont présentes surtout entre 20 et 21 heure et qu’on apprend que c’est presque toujours vers 22/23 heure en principe , il y a de quoi douter du sérieux . Bref nous étions rentrés au village et vers 23h00 les aurores ont commencé Évitez donc de payer pour ....rien et vous geler à - 29°C

Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaire et nous sommes navrés que votre expérience ne se soit pas déroulé comme ésperé. En haute saison faut savoir que nous devons toujours offrir l'activité a tout client qui reserve et si l'un des clients prends un peu de retard peut egalement retarder la prise en charge des autres clients. Pour les aurores boréales, comme vous le savez, cela depend des prévisions méteo et il n'est jamais possible de connaitre avec exactitude le temps d'apparition. Nous sommes navrés que vous n'ayez pas pu les observer ce jour la. Pour le barbecue, nous offrons snack et non dinner pour cette raison vous avez une saucisse et jus chaud autour du feu. Nous vous souhaitons une belle continuation
