We had a great night with Beyond Arctic in Rovaniemi. It was really lucky for us to book the tour at the only clear night that week. We waited for the Aurora along a site by the river bank, under the clear sky where you...More

Thank you for your review! Sometimes Northern Lights activity shows up late at night, which is why we always have an extra hour to add for this kind of nights! I'm happy that it worked out and Auroras showed up for you! :)

I didn’t think we were going to see the lights because of the low kp level on the aurora app. But wow! The whole night it was an amazing show! Kerrtu our guide was beyond helpful. She helped me figure out the settings for my...More

We had an amazing day of snow shoeing. The guide was knowledgeable and took us to quiet parts of the forest where we were the first hikers of the winter. The sausage and glogi treat at the end were great too. Beautiful day!

Great to hear about your wonderful day in snowshoeing adventure! First snow and first tours of the winter are always special, as we are able to face untouched nature and no visible trails! Thank you for joining the team!

Obviously the weather did not cooperate on the night of my tour. In addition to not seeing any northern lights, the wind came up to gale force, making it impossible even to stand outside and see any stars. Our guide took us to a spot...More
