I am very privileged to have Jann as my guide. Last night, he empathised with my kid's desire to hunt down the famous Northern Lights and drove a troop of 8 of us, from Inari to Utsjoki and all the way to the border of...More

一行五人報了這個團!Janne一開始時就幫我們查看了那一天的機會最大。 到了出發當天,導遊非常專業及負責任!起初还因爲怕天氣不好,打算從Ivalo 帶我們去挪威追極光。 一路上只要看到值得看到東西,如滿天星、鹿第。前後还看了兩次極光。 他們負責任的態度,打動了我們幾個人。不單是導遊,更是一個朋友! 如果你想追極光,我相信他們一定不會令你失望! We are five people from Hong Kong , Janne and Jani are very professional, they do more than your expectation! Janne treat you as a friend, even we ask very a lot question. They even wanted to take us...More

No, it’s not possible because in June sun is shining at night too and it’s bright also at night.
