We could not see the lights because it was very cloudy. The place was very nice but without the lights, there was not much to do.

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed this trip and were very lucky to see the northern lights in one of the clearest nights for a while according to the tour guide. One disappointment was the food, if you are expecting a traditional lappish picnic...its not but then again this tour is more for the northern lights as appose to the food. Worth the money overall.

The tour was really very good, both guides Laura and Timmo were absolutely professional and paid much attention to every participant. That was very interesting experience both for adults and children 11 and 6 yrs. Of course, it depends on children, if they are not afraid of dark forest, and they like to seat by fireplace and listen to the legends and stories. What I would recommend for children, just to have more fun - to give them headlamp and make them guess the steps in the snow :
