I have just returned to the UK following a trip, only 4 days in duration, which was the holiday of a lifetime. I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights and have made a couple of attempts when I witnessed them in a limited way. This time was so special! Lights over Lapland organise breaks for people who want... More

We had 100 % aurora, in a cool group with a nice guide and top equipment. It was a pleasure. We'll come back again for sure!

Our guide Chris gave us a good briefing on the use of the tour's Nikon SLR cameras. It was very easy to understand. We then went out keeping our fingers crossed that the sky would clear — which it did. Chris went around everyone in our 10 person group making sure we were ok with composition and settings. He also... More

Top rank organisation. First came across Chad and Lights over Lapland in 2013 when his service was relatively new - now in March 2017 it has expanded significantly. Clothing, cameras, and tripods for those who need them are top quality. Using professional photographers as guides ensures that all guests get the help they need - whether camera beginners or experienced... More

Our guide Oliver was amazing. Attention to every client, most of whom did not know how to operate a DSLR prior to the tour. As far as the pictures, got lucky and had an amazing Aurora showing. Truly life changing. Do yourself a favor and book via Lights over Lappland. We were with guests the next day doing another activity... More

Great tour! Well-thought out from the protective gear (use them!! it gets cold) to the nice refreshments in the tent. Unfortunately, we didn't see the lights on the day we went but Chris our 'tutor' in photography, managed to keep us entertained with neat little tricks we could do with the cameras and the landscape is just brilliant.

This was an incredible experience; the night I picked happen to be clear with tons of solar activity, so we were able to see and photograph and good deal. It gets very very cold during the winter and you will be outside for a substantial amount of time. The fire in the little tent, as well as the hot drink... More

This was the best evening of our whole trip. AN ABSOLTE MUST. Nicolas, our guide was so amazing in the way he explained how to use the camera they supplied for each person, his enthusiasm and patience. You could tell he loved his job. We captured beautiful photos which we would never have captured using our own camera. if you... More
