Really wonderful experience! We were lucky that we could change the date for our trip, according to the forecast of cloud coverage, so we had the only real clear skies nights within the three days that we were in Ivalo. We got to see the aurora in our first stop and got nice pictures from Mr. Kari, thanks a lot! He was also very patient and flexible in looking for other places where the aurora could be more visible. Unfortunately, the aurora was not too active and we did not get to see much more activity after our first stop. It was also freezing as the time went by in the night (it reached -20ºC). Nevertheless, it was a unique experience that we will be willing to repeat with Mr. Kari if we visit Ivalo again :)

We went aurora hunting with mr Kari on Feb 29th 2020. First stop at Ukonjärvi lake was a bit disappointing due to cloud coverage. Mr Kari was not very happy either and decided to go further north, way past Inari. There we found a location with clear sky and a fantastic display of a very active aurora which lasted almost an hour before clouds started appear again.

We booked a snowbile tour. It was amazing! Good explanation about the snowmobile. We could stop to make pictures and our guide Kaisu brought tea and home made cookies which we enjoyed with a stunning view! The clothes we got were very warm. She told us nice stories about Senner dogs who hunt birds. It was a great experience!

We had a great time from snowmobiling to the wintry forest and frozen river, King Crab Safari to Kirkenes, and aurora hunting. Both guide are the owner of this company and they r very nice, genuinely take care of their clients. You cannot go wrong booking with this company.

We had the King crab Safari with them and everything was great. To start with the very short notice booking I made two days before the trip - that was no problem for them. I was promised to get an offer and they sent it in few hours, I confirmed and we agreed pickup time. All communication was prompt, even it was made during the weekend. We were picked right on time from our lovely guide Kaisu in a car- all for our family of three. She was very knowledgeable and told us a lot for the area we were traveling. When we arrived she showed us around the Snow hotel Kirkenes as well. The king crab fishing is run by the hotel, so I made separate review for them. When we finished Kaisu drove us back to Kakslauttanen and we had an extra for the same price Aurora watching -at least five on the road from Norway to Finland. It was one of a kind experience I highly recommend, and this are no empty compliments, because I had very disappointing tour with other local company, so I can make the difference.
