Super! We were very lucky, we saw the light at first attempt. Our tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable. There is also hot chocolate and cookies which was a very nice touch during the freezing night looking at the light.

The tour guide was great and he tried to make it an experience but if the northern lights are not there or the weather is bad, chances are you won't see anything. We had a faint sighting but not a real experience.

This was an amazing tour! I got to bond with fellow travelers from my hostel as we drove around looking for the lights. We were able to get some decent images with the right camera settings but they were not highly visible to the naked eye so we were invited back to rebook for free. I would have taken them up on their offer if I hadn't been leaving the next day. Great tour guide and company!

Didn't see anything and was extremely cold. I know it's not guaranteed but we went the opposite way of where the Northern Lights were meant to appear that night.

We were picked just as it was about to begin raining. From our hotel, we were taken to the transfer station - only to stand in line outside, in the rain. Granted, we were dressed for rain, but the forecast should have been a red flag - you can't see anything if it's that cloudy. I had booked the tour before our trip and learned that next time I should book this tour ONLY once we are there and know the forecast for sure. The tour operator offered to take us out again the following night, but we had the same forecast and frankly, the thought of driving around until 2 or 3 in the morning one more time did not sound appealing. Also, I thought the bus would have a hot drink and sadly it did not.

This was awesome! We were lucky enough to see the lights!!! Make sure you atleast try!!!!! Holy moly was it cold and windy though, however the tour offers you hot chocolate and yummy biscuits. Our tour guide was awesome! It was his first night and he was very informative. Many people wanted to sleep, he sensed that and went easy.
