“Awesome!!! Want to see the Nothern lights even if its snowing-book Carina!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Yesterday I booked the tour of the company Scan Adventure owned by Carina. It was snowing a lot and when I came to the meeting place I discovered that many companies cancelled the tour and people went disappointed. But the assistant of Carina Roy came (he explained that "Carina is ill and couldn't come")and told us that we are going to Finland and will try to see the Northern Lights there. We drove 3 hours to Finland, Roy provided us with warm clothes, hot drinks and delicious cakes. Then we found clear sky and saw the magic Northern Lights.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Karina owns the small company of Scan adventure, and when you go on an aurora trip with her you get what you expect. The price is quite low compared to some other trip organizers, although these often include for example a meal or snowsuits. When you're just looking for a knowlegdeable guide who will happily drive you around nothern Norway for several hours, who can explain the phenomena and help you with your camera and who provides tea and cake, you're pretty safe to book with Scan Adventure. Bring your own warm clothing and keep your fingers crossed for the Aurora.

“Great Northern Lights trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Karina from Scan adventure took us on a successful lights chasing trip, leaving and returning from Tromso. She knew some good places to go, had done all the research she could about conditions on the day beforehand and was great company! The trip was informative and leisurely with good cake and hot drinks.

It is important to understand that nothing is guaranteed and that a little luck is required as well as local knowledge, it is not possible to be sure what will be seen in any given area. We were very happy with the trip with Karina, especially as she brought mini sledges for us to use!

“best experience ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went with Scan Adventure, to search for the Nothern Lights!!!!!!
We went with Karina Weinschenk, the best, she knows whats she is doing and is straight forward, and funny!!! Our trip was 7 hours well spent and we saw the best Nothern lights, in green and purple colors!!!

And the best of all is that Karina, is as exited as we were, when we saw the lights!!! Eventhought she has seen many!!!

I really advise to go with her on a trip , searching the Nothern lights!!!!
It will be fanny and magical

thanks Karina!!!
