Exaggerated and misleading description of the tour. The so called “adventure” to a “remote” camp consisted in a 10 minute ride in a snowmobile sleight. That’s it. The “adventure” took place in a field quite close to Abisko (we could even saw the lights of the cars a few hundred meters away). The description of the tour, however, makes you think you will be in a hidden gem of the Valley. But, that’s simply not true. No travelling across “frozen lakes”, no nothing. You could even walk to this place from Abisko.
Should they were honest, this activity would be ok for travellers with no idea about photography. You get an entry-level reflex Nikon camera (which is preset) and a tripop. Amateur photographers will find it boring and superfluous. In our case, the activity should have been cancelled (it was snowing and the weather forecast was very bad). [Don’t let the supposedly Abisko’s “microclimate” guff fool you]. As you can imagine, we didn’t see any Auroras.
I regret not having invested my money in a new camera instead (the price of an entry-level reflex camera is about the price we paid for this excursion). We should have checked the weather forecast, downloaded an Aurora forecast app, and walked a few hundred meters in search of a nice, dark spot (there are several close to the STF Abisko Mountain Station). I know now that Auroras are a very rare phenomenon and that companies that promise you to photographing one are just ‘tourist traps’. 3 out of 4 you won’t see anything.
