Once I manage to pick you up from the hotel or other place where you are in, we may then head far away from the city lights to the countryside with absolute darkness and as much possible clear sky as it might be. The road takes approximately up to an hour or so, but don't be afraid, I am a kind of fellow you won't get bored with. When we reach the spot with a picturesque view, we’ll then set up our camp. This time we have to wait for the Aurora to appear. Sometimes the colorful Northern lights appear in the blink of an eye and vanishes after a few moments later, sometimes we have to wait even several hours, but it worth it, trust me, it may last hours as well. And, of course, there can be total bad luck with low glittering or no lights at all- it’s just a matter of chance. So take it as a game, don't take it serious. You'll have your chance next time. While waiting we’ll have fun playing traditional games, sharing stories, drinking hot tea with cookies. Feel free to ask me some useful tips how to take pictures of the Aurora if you have your own camera. Otherwise I'll take a photo of you and the Aurora if you like. When we finally either catch this fantastic lights show in the sky or not, it’s time to go home. I’ll give you a ride right to your hotel. Be prepared to be a little bit exhausted but happy next morning. We wish good luck each other and hope to meet once again.
One of the mysteries which can't stop fascinating me is the Aurora Borealis. In spite of the fact that I've seen it hundred times, I just can't get enough of it. The biggest task that, I would say, explodes my brain is the Aurora prediction. I suppose sometimes it's even easier to get a bullet in your head playing Russian roulette than predicting the Aurora. However, there are days when you don't need to be a mixture of Superman and Batman to say it is likely to happen. I always do my best to choose the right direction with less clouds and city lights pollution. I trust scientific data but a weather sensible aching knee of my granny is unfortunately may be more precise. I guess my experience is the one you should count on, everything else is a good addition to it. I would like to share my passion with you and make a tour of your lifetime

Taking pictures of you and the Aurora
There is a variety of different landscapes: forest, tundra, hills. Winter and snow make them completely different. Tundra turns to a complete snowy desert because of the high snowdrifts while in summer it is a colorful carpet with low trees, plants and moss. Hills remain their greatness throughout the time no matter what happens. This is one of the symbols of the North. The northern forest is where you may enjoy the silence and wild nature.
