Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and depend on the sun activity and the cloud coverage.
Therefore, the tours are operated depending on weather and aurora forecasts.
Around 17.00 we can tell if the tour will be operated or not.
What happens if...?
...we are running the tour and the Northern Lights are seen? - Everyone is happy
...we are running the tour but no Northern Lights are seen? - You can reschedule to another day (free of charge) and your ticket will be valid for 3 years, within this period you can reschedule as many times until you see the Northern lights!
