What you'll do

We will pick you up at our meeting points or at your hotels in the city center or if you stay at any of our AirBnB listings even outside of the city center. We find the best location for seeing the Northern lights for that particular night and inform you about your real chances. We will then drive to our chosen spot. We will give you thermal suites to keep you warm at the coldest weather condition, and we also have winter boots in case you will need it.

We will make our base camp in an arctic surrounding, set up a bonfire, serve hot chocolate and cake/cookies. To make it really cozy will we also have a picnic style barbecue where we will have either sausages or fish burgers with tortilla bread. (vegetarian alternativ only on request). It is a special and very unique experience.

We will help you set up your own camera for taking your own aurora pictures. We also have some additional tripods for you.

We will wait for the appearance of aurora, if it is was not already there when we arrived. While waiting for the aurora to appear will we tell you the facts and fictions about 'aurora borealis' and will be happy to get more curious questions from you.

We will take professional pictures of you and your group with an aurora background and will send it to your email in JPEG format free of charge. This will help you refreshing your arctic experience memories again and again.

Very good experience of aurora hunting with Mansoor. Unfortunately we did not see a lot of auroras this night, but the conditions where not so good. We stayed in contact with Mansoor and the day after we have seen some thanks to his recommendations! It was amazing this time. The campfire were nice and we learned a lot about auroras thanks to the knowledge of our guide, I totally recommend this experience with him.

We had a wonderful time with Mansoor! He clearly knows what he's talking about, and he makes for excellent company other than being an expert guide. He can also lend you the right gear to brave the arctic winter. I would definitely repeat this experience!

The service is worth a 5 stat rating , simply because he made the northern lights experience worth remembering. He really did an extra mile made sure we are all warm, comfortable and well-fed. He gave amazing and informative facts about the northern lights. He also shared jokes and puns that made the whole experience fun and fantastic. An experience I would be remembering for the rest of my life.. Pictures was the icing of the Northern lights experience. You should try it and see for yourself. There is no negative comment that I could say. Overall its a 10/10 . thank you Mansoor!

Mansoor is an excellent guide, he knows what to do and have all the kind of equipments or what ever we ask for. We were lucky and saw the northern lights and Mansoor took a very good care of everyone. He is even good as a photographer.

It was a particularly bad night for Mansoor because the weather was not cooperating with us. After hours of driving, Mansoor found a good location for the night, where we were able to catch the northern lights show on a frozen lake. It was an awesome experience and Mansoor was an excellent storyteller. I just wished we had better luck with the weather. Would do it again :)
