Really enjoy my first nothern light tour with Northstar Advantures. 他們還有提供攝影服務, 有帶相機也會協助你設定相機, 跟他們買照片相對起我們隔天的tour真的便宜很多, 這次行程去了兩個點看極光都有拍出很美的照片也留下美好的回憶. 他們車上也有提供熱可可跟餅乾, 冷的話盡管躲回車上就好 Thanks Maggie and Eddie making this trip more memorable!

Last time I researched the Northern light Hunt season is between November 1st to April 15th. I believe October is not good to visit.
