I'd like to express my disappointment from the tour they organized for us on 25.11.2019. They knew that the day isn't suitable for the Northern Light to be seen, and still didnt't offer anything in exchange. At least they could've tried to find a place with no clouds. The food…

Dear Angela, Thank you for your review and email as well. Since we know Aurora borealis is very difficult to forecast we offer a change for our clients to re-schedule Aurora Borealis Picnic still on the same day of the activity. I'm really sorry you have missed this information in the activity description when making the reservation but unfortunately we don't cancel or amend the reservation whether we don't get a notification for this from our clients. We are focusing on creating an experience on our evening safaris and whether we manage to catch the northern lights it is a great bonus. But obviously we can never guarantee whether one would see them in the evening or not. I hope this explained the situation.
Me and my wife went to Rovaniemi for our 9th anniversary . Like everyone , only thing on our mind was to be lucky enough to see aurora borealis . Went through numerous brochures of service providers and came across Safartica !! Brochure was impressive, brief and precise . Trip…

Dear ritzony, Oooh, There are not enough words to describe how happy I am that you were able to see the northern lights. They are really difficult to forecast and needs prefect timing and location so this tour has really been a success! I will pass your words to Rafael, Byron and Essi, they are great aren't they :)
I went around Christmas time in 2017 in hopes of seeing the Northern Lights with my family and friends. I traveled to Norway last year Christmas and saw the Northern Lights 4 times with the guides taking beautiful photos, providing wonderful meals and conversation. Of course…

Thank you for taking time for your review. I'm sorry to hear that it was foggy on the night for your tour. But as you said, we never know whether the northern lights will appear and they are really difficult to forecast. This is the reason we give the opportunity for our clients to reschedule the tour even on the same day without extra charge. I'm sorry if you didn't get this information or if you didn't have other days as an option. Actually we do have several spots for this activity, it's not always the same location we go. But as per your story the weather conditions have been similar all over Rovaniemi. Regarding to vegetarian meal, I'll make a note on this matter. It's unfortunate what happened on your activity and you are correct that there should be at least few extra vegetarian options with our guides. I hope your experience in Rovaniemi and Finland was positive even without catching the northern light. Hope to have you back one day!
We booked this activity to see the northern lights. The guides were one Finish (very good and professional), one Spanish and one Italian. When we arrived at the point the bus left and the team started preparing the meal with strong lights on their heads. They told us not to use…
