Although it was raining when we headed out in search of the northern lights, we saw the dancing lights after a two hour drive. It was amazing and spectacular. Remember to wear appropriate clothing as it can be wet and very cold. Some fellow visitors wore tennis shoes and a thin jacket. The driver and guide did an excellent job.
Amazing trip with helpful and informative guide!
We had a good guide and driver who tried their best to show us the NL travelling to four sites over 5.5 hours. The conditions were not good but we saw a few NL, had a wonderful time in the snowy landscapes and didn't feel cold as the wind was low. We met some good people on the trip and had a good bit of banter with them.
