We were a group of 8 and Sarah took us to her kit base to make sure we all had clothing suitable for the expected conditions and the expected depth of the snow at the likely viewing points (about 12 inches). We each got a well specified Nikon camera and tripod . Having loaded in our SD cards she drove us to a couple of locations where Sarah knew the aurora might be seen, and she helped us set up our cameras so we were good to go if the aurora put in an appearance. She is one positive, well informed, oh so helpful person. She was patient, ready to tell me what she had told me several times over and I still hadn't managed to take on board. She was constantly in touch with other similar tour leaders and was able to take us through how to use the cameras to best effect, to show us the northern lights and be right there ready to view them and help us take our precious photos. And what a show there was that night!!! Three bursts of bright aurora, easy to see and, with Sarah's help, easy to get pics. She even took a pic of my husband and me with our camera taking aurora shots against the aurora in full flow. That's one to show everyone back home.
In a lull between the lights being visible we enjoyed hot lingonberry juice with cinnamon buns round a campfire. Again, Sarah was well prepared and made sure all of us were able to get full enjoyment of the whole experience.
Returning to the building to dress back in our own clothes there was very, very heavy snowfall but Sarah knew how to handle the conditions and the 20 minute drive passed in chatter and the sharing of our wonderful experience.
Take home message? If you book this and Sarah B is listed as the guide then don't walk, run. She is the best! read lessDr G S24/01/23

Although the aurora activity was very weak, we had a pleasant experience with our guide. We didn't see obvious aurora but it was not the guide's fault but the timing wasn't right. read lessIvan L30/12/22
