After Picking You Up Outside Your Hotel, We Will Leave The City Lights Behind Us
And Drive To Where We Expect The Clearest Weather Conditions That Night.
Once We’ve Found Clear Sky, We Will Look For A Scenic Spot To Set Up Our Camp
For The Night. On Some Nights The Aurora Appears Right Away, On Other Nights
We Have To Be Patient. Sometimes We See A Faint Greenish Line Across The
Horizon, Sometimes It’s A Bucket Full Of Colors Dancing In The Sky. The Northern
Lights Appear On Most Nights, But They Are Not Always Strong, Which Is Why We
Will Try To Chase The Light On Two More Nights.
We Will Take Pictures Of The Northern Lights And You And Share Them With You
After The Trip. If You Decide To Bring Your Own Camera, We Will Also Help You Set
It Up And Teach You All You Need To Know To Take Home Great Shots Of The
Aurora And The Stunning Landscape Around Us.
