Amazing experience

It was an amazing experience, The guide, Ben, is a really kind person and brought us to a magic place where we could see a fantastic aurora!
An incredible experience

Ben is a passionate guide who prefers quality to quantity. We were a few kilometres from Rovaniemi, on a lake where I had the opportunity to see the northern lights. Surely one of the most beautiful memories of my life. I recommend 100%.

Ben is the best person for this tour he knows his job very well. He will take all the effort to make your tour memorable. Ben is very enthusuastic, interactive and helpful. Ben took us to great location near river almost 100 km away from city light. and warm clothes/suit, food barbeque everything was perfect. Ben will do all the effort to make you see northern light but even if you wont due to weather condition. it is worth a tour as good experience.
On préfère en rigoler

Rien a dire sur le guide qui était très gentil et passionné! Par contre, quand le ciel est tellement couvert qu’on ne voit même pas la lune, ça serait mieux pour tout le monde d’annuler la soirée et de libérer les gens pour qu’ils profitent de la soirée de leur côté, surtout quand on est en vacances et que nos soirs sont comptés! On a payé honnêtement très cher pour manger une saucisse et un chocolat chaud à l’eau. J’aurai préféré qu’on nous ramène chez nous et que Viator nous propose de décaler l’excursion ou bien un avoir ou un bon de réduction sur une autre excursion si le temps est pas terrible. On préfère en rigoler maintenant mais vraiment cette soirée c’était l’angoisse personne ne parlait dans la voiture, on s’endormait, et on a failli choper une grosse crève à force de rien faire.

Thank you for leaving your comment. As this is my first 1 rating, I feel it requires a little bit more understanding what has lead to this evening failing to meet your expectations. When we left Rovaniemi the stars were out and the weather forecast showed clear skies in all directions, I followed the data and made my decisions accordingly. But en route to our first location the weather changed 100% to cloud. We were all in shock, as we were all aware that the weather report looked in our favour this night. As this is the arctic, the weather can change and is quite unpredictable. We then changed our location and went to north, as far as we could, before the night was destined to sadly show us no lights due to cloud cover. This cloud cover was not forecasted and sadly made the night in some respects a fail. The other element of the night is that we offer some warm snacks and warm drinks. As this is a northern light hunt, I felt at that point we had exhausted all routes and therefore made a small fire in order to offer some drinks and also explain a little about Lapland. This tour also includes the option for all my customers to cancel 24hrs before their tour, so if the weather looks bad you are free to cancel. I have cancelled multiple evenings due to cloud cover and snow. This just happened to be one of those nights that we were caught out. I am terribly sorry it did not meet your expectations. But mother nature was in control this night, and we were unfortunate.
Super recomendo!!

Aunque no vimos las luces, nuestro guía fue estupendo. Se ve que sabe mucho e hizo el esfuerzo de llevarnos a otro lugar. Aún y sin verlas la experiencia fue muy buena!
