What an amazing experince! Our tour guide Sergio was really taking good care of the group, we all got to know a bit about each other, he explained to us everything about the northern lights and showed us very useful apps for northern lights forecast. He prepared a nice bbq for us and brought a lot of hot berry juice to keep us warm! He also took the most beautiful photos of every single one of us with the northern lights. Even at the last moment, after he packed all oh his equipment and just when we were about to leave, Aurora was the brightest ,so he took his camera again and took more photos of us with the very bright lights! He really cared about our experience that night, as he knew for most of us it was a dream to see the northern lights 😊

I really recommend this tour, would do it again without thinking! 🌟
Thank you Sergio for the most wonderful tour!

Our experience is really great. From the time of booking and the staff via whatsapp always updating me and my hubby regarding when is the best day to see the northern lights to the actual northern lights photo tour was an excellent and amazing experience. Kudos to our amazing guide, Lorenzo, for not only making our long-drive enjoyable by listening to very nice music, good driving skills and sharing of lovely stories, the photos he took were beyond amazing. He is also on time, very friendly, nice to speak with and also told us about very interesting facts about Northern Finland and his nice experiences. The best thing was that he gave his 200% best to ensure we saw the northern lights and we really did see, not only once, not twice and not even thrice. We saw the northern lights more times than we can imagine in its full glory, dancing in our naked eyes, even during the drive! We are so happy and thankful to Lorenzo for making our northern lights experience amazing and unforgettable. He is the best guide anyone can ask for if you want to have an excellent experience with northern lights. Next time, we would like to return with some of our family and friends and we will definitely book again this tour, hopefully, Lorenzo will be available :)

We were extremely lucky to experience the Northern lights and also be blessed with great guides and a photographer.

Our guide Telmo helped to build the fire to keep everyone warm and was very friendly, explaining to us what gives rise to the auroras.

A special shoutout to our photographer Rafael, who was so enthusiastic about taking photos for eveyone, running to different spots to check the angles and lighting, making sure everyone was happy with their photos before moving onto the next couple/group. Rafa also helped us set our camera settings to make it optimal to capture the northern lights so we could photograph it on our own. Thank you Rafa!

Possibly the most boring tour we've ever been on. We got unlucky with a cloudy sky but, in all honesty, the time spent 'waiting' could've been used with giving a long spiel about the Northern Lights (as detailed in the brochure - we got no info at all) and a group photography lesson (we were given tips because we specifically asked). It's a pity because the guides were lovely people and they extended the tour by one hour in case clouds cleared, just unfortunate that they did't manage to engage the group and be more interactive with the whole group (not just those who were next to them). The agency seems to have good reviews for active tours but, on a weather-dependent tour, you really need to pour loads of guiding experience to make it feel worthwhile, both in terms of time and money. They really need to give these tours to the most experienced and outgoing guides, in my honest opinion. Disappointed, to say the least, on the only paid tour we chose to do in Rovaniemi.
Also, IF you are looking for an agency that offers any kind of COVID safety, you won't find it here. Never asked for our vacc certificates (so no one else was either) and in a small vehicle with 6 other people for a considerable amount of time.

This review feels special because although we were not lucky enough to view the Northern Lights due to heavy cloud cover, I still think it was one of the most memorable nights in my life!

This was due to several firsts - walking on frozen lakes, have a traditional Lappish barbecue out in the wild in biting cold and walking and sinking into knee-deep snow at the same time! Our tour guide, Clement, is very friendly, cheerful and deeply knowledgeable about Finnish culture and Northern Lights! I had a great time discussing our home countries' cultures with each other.

For me, it was truly inspirational in how Clement remained cheerful and never gave up hope by moving to different locations to have better chances. Even when it became clear we would not be seeing the Northern Lights that night, he told us how we might be able to see it later from near our hotels! He is a wonderful person and tour guide and I am sure other tourists would greatly enjoy having him as their guide. Oh and also, he is a fantastic photographer!

Thank you, Clement and Nordic Unique Travels!

We have done another tour with Nordic Unique Travel and were so pleased that we decided to choose them for our last chance to seeing northern lights.

What a great choice! Lorenzo was our guide, he is a true northern lights lover. We did absolutely his best to ensure we could see them. And we did! A dream came true.

Lorenzo gives his honest forecast about whether you will be able to hunt the northern lights, but his personal commitment makes it possible.

We will definitely repeat again with Nordic Unique Travels and Lorenzo for our next visit to Rovaniemi.

We took the aurora hunting photography tour with the guide name Jordie, on time, very flexible, friendly, charismatic, told me and my mom about very interesting facts about Lapland and it's nature. Eventhough we did not get to see the northern lights due to weather conditions we enjoyed the ride and the snacks we had by a frozen lake and a fire.
He really tried hunting the northern lights for us and pushed a little extra, which in these cases, I believe to be the best type of guide you can wish for!

What a lovely & magical two days with the best agency in Rovaniemi, NORDIC UNIQUE TRAVELS!!! We are so happy and delighted! You've done an amazing job!
It would not be possible to say enough about Alexandra's, Tina's, Sergio's, Manel' & Mathias's qualities. They were entertaining, fun, engaging and extremely accommodating. Five star plus. In addition, they have wide experience and knowledge in other areas, a constant source of conversation, information and pleasure. Alexandra & Tina were superb. Very competent, informed, helpful, knowledgeable... Excellent and well chosen.
You always work so passionately to make sure your customers get the best experience and insight and they really are reaping the rewards from your efforts! You're always so authentic and enthusiastic.
Checking up on people is a real show of genuine kindness. It’s so lovely to be in a workplace that prioritises mental health and wellbeing and this sort of support from coworkers helps people feel seen is absolutely invaluable. It speaks volumes about your character; thank you

Having a barbecue on a frozen lake and trying to capture the northern lights was a unique experience. Although the lights weren't really strong, our guide Sergio took some amazing photos. I'm so glad we've booked this tour. Great evening, thank you very much to the entire team!

We had a fantastic night, it was really a dream come true! We were very lucky with the natural conditions but we could never have enjoyed it as much as we did without our guide Louis. He explained everything, knew the good spots, showed us how to photograph the lights and took amazing photos of us with his camera. His passion for the northern lights, Lapland and nature in general was inspiring and his enthusiasm spread quickly. We had one of the best nights of our lives! Thank you so much Louis , we highly recommend the tour!
