Wonderful remoted area in the snowy forest, were we felt like touching the stars. The campire kept us alive even in -20°C degrees. Seeing the northern light was a dream come true! Marko has been a great guide sharing his experiences and taking professional pictures of us and the aurora. Everything was so well taken care of. Kiitos paljon!

Thank you so much for the amazing excursion! Because of the clouds we weren’t able to see the auroras but Marko was enthusiastic throughout and also gave us tips for spotting auroras. Truly an enjoyable experience :)
