First of all, Guide Gunnar is a really nice guy - this is important if you're going to spend four hours (or more) hanging around at night when it's -9C! After a briefing, Gunnar fetched his minibus and we were off. The minibus was modern,...More

We had been on a number of other excursions in the area (all good) though none had a guide as passionate about the region's spectacular natural setting and finding the perfect spot from which to view the Aurora Borealis.
