Each day, just before departure, we contact meteorologists at the official weather station to get accurate information, in order to know where we will have best chances to see the northern lights.

We know people all around the county. They are important in our search for clear skies. We also use webcams, weather satellites, other tour operators, and all our 1-5 cars in different places have contact with each other.

All our guides are skilled photographers. After taking several thousand pictures of the lights, we know how to get the best pictures. We send you all pictures we take on the tour, also with you in the foreground.

To keep you safe on icy and snowy roads, all guides are trained by a professional local driving instructor.

To keep the energy up and avoid getting cold, we serve warm high energy expedition food. Eat well before the tour, since we some times eat late because of a long drive for clear skies. We also have food for vegetarians.

We have not heard anything bad about any hotels here, so all are recommended. You can book hotels on our front page.
