We had a great time with Onur and Felipe (sorry for the bad spelling). We were spoiled by the universe which offered us a magnificent show! Regarding the organization I have nothing to say! We were very well received in a good mood and kindness! Want to try something cool without worrying about the rest? Come see the “ororas” with them

It was a unique experience with great weather. Great, very nice guides. Delicious food and very nice souvenir photos from a photographer. All in all perfect. Thanks very much !

Great experience! Despite the fact that the day was quite cloudy, the guides managed to find clear areas and we were able to see the auroras.

It was a fantastic tour with the guides going above and beyond to make sure we had a memorable experience

It was an amazing experience. Best Northern lights tour ever
