Awesome!

Second attempt to see the lights and did not disappoint! I booked both trips with Beyond Arctic because they strive to give you the best experience even when the chances of seeing the lights are low.

I recommend calling the front desk before making the booking to make sure you get an idea of the possibilities to see the lights at a particular day or week.

Nadja helped us with our camera settings and took great photos of us with the light in the background. It was awesome!

Great trip to see the lights!
While it's always a question as to whether you'll see the lights for not, this tour did not disappoint! Our guide got us outfitted in our snow suits and off we went on our hunt! As we were driving out of the city, she was scanning the skies, and saw some "interesting activity. " We stopped at a location, and sure enough, there they were!! She helped us get our camera settings optimized, and we got some great pics. Then on to our main location, where the lights appeared for over an hour. This company can't control the lights, so we got blessed on that front, but they sure know how to optimize the hunt!! Great tour!

Aurora Hunting
Mar 2020 • Couples
We had a great time with Beyond Arctic on the expedition and Maiju was a lifesaver to help us with the portrait when our battery ran out!
Her photography tips to best capture the Northern lights were really helpful. Maiju was committed to chase down the lights all the way to the Swedish border to make sure we had the best shot at seeing the lights.

It’s a pity Lady Aurora wasn’t in quite the mood to show herself! But we did see the initial phases of the lights which made our day! Hopefully there’s a next time for us with Beyond Arctic again!

Enthusiastic and successful northern lights chase
Feb 2020
We had the chance to see wonderful northern lights with our funny and very enthusiastic guide Maiju who did not spare energy and time to make sure we would get them! Hence we drove until the Swedish Border and waited on a frozen lake until they finally showed up! Marvelous experience with helpful comments on photography as well ;-)
Thousand thanks to Maiju!

Perfect aurora tour!
We saw the aurora last night and it was absolutely splendid. Our guide Luca was so nice and helpful. We were very lucky to see this nature's wonder at the second place but it disappeared after we took enough photos. Luca decided to leave the first place promptly after checking the probability there and it was a perfect call. Luca took many photos of us and sent them in original size the right next day. All the stories he told us were fun and useful and the experience evoking fire with fire steel was really fun too. I would 100% recommend this tour.

The Northern lights with guide Maju
Feb 2020 • Couples
Yesterday we went to chase and see the Northern lights with very nice guide Maju. We were so fortunate to see it. Maju was very nice, friendly and funny, laughing all the time. We like the whole trip even though it was very cold -26 digrees. We strongly recommend this company, they provide worm shoes, clothes and also little refreshment, sausages on open fire with finish mustered. There was also katchup but Maju is mustered lover so we had to have mustered:))) kiitos, thank you so much.
