Do not hesitate, just do it!

Northern Lights are special for many reasons but it is not always there when or where you want to see it. Our guide (Jérémie) was very thorough from the beginning in this aspect, carefully planning a trip based on the night’s predictions. He was perfect for our family, providing a comfort journey for our little one too. His excellent photography skills are also worth mentioning! We were very lucky to witness wonderful Northern Lights last night but it wouldn’t have been possible without Jérémie for sure.

Wonderful trip with a great guide, Adrian. We gathered at the office then headed off to a lake about twenty minutes away to view the lights. It was promising, but the moon and clouds were obstructing the view a bit. But, we prevailed and Adrian got some great photos of us. He taught us to make a fire and we had some delicious sausages and hot chocolate. Highly recommend the excursion!

Man! What a night! Timo is an amazing guide, he took us to the best place to see the lights and we were lucky enough to get a great spectacle. In this experience you get all the information about the lights and make your decision about where to go! Great guide, great photos, great snack and hot chocolate! Overall amazing night!

We had a great evening with Timo. He took us to several places to give us the chance to see the Northern Lights. His enthusiasm kept us going and in the end we had the best view of the Northern Lights. It was after 1am that we have returned to hotel, but was absolutely worth :)

Worthful Experience with Timo and Chris Team ! More than 5 stars.

I would strongly strongly recommend going for a Northern Lights hunt with Timo or anyone from Nordic Odessey. They are passionate and are ready to take an extra amount of step to make us see the Northern Lights. We went with timo, he is the friendliest guide whom I have met in my life, made it so comfortable to talk to everyone and to be as a team with other folks on our tour. Loved the whole experience! We saw the lights within the first 15 minutes of our ride, timo took us to unique spots and took our photographs with so much patience. He also captured the Milky Way for us. The photos came amazing! Added to this, even after hours gazing at the Northern Lights - timo didn’t gave up and re-checked other places to ensure that we aren’t missing the best and the brightest of the Aurora Borealis. The trip starts at your hotel, where they pick up mostly in a van followed by a river edge spot for us and then center of a frozen lake. The veg sausages were the best one which I had ever and the bonfire experience was amazing! Please note the temperature drops down under 25 , so you would need to be well covered! Overalls can be requested to the team as well. I would recommend Nordic Odessy, Chris , Temo and everyone to all who wish to not just see northern lights but to experience it. Also, I did had the expedition with couple other guides, they were there to pass the time and call of the hunting within 3/4 hours of travel. Timo and Chris Team is fabulous! God bless, hope to see them again when I return to Finland.

Best experience in Finland

It was the best experience that we booked in Rovaniemi. Hands down. They arranged pickup from our location, arranged suits and boots for us upon request and decide on best route to take based on weather forecast to give you the best chance of seeing the aurora. We were explained what to expect which was also appreciated. The group was small which allowed allocated time for more individual photos. Jeremie was amazing; he was very patient and experienced photographer, he helped me set up my camera to get a photo myself as well but honestly his photos where amazing and captured the once in a life time experience. Really really amazing experience. And so much fun.

Good tour

Great tour. The time of tour was pushed back to have a better chance of seeing the northern lights. We went into Sweden and stayed in a wooden hut where we had sausages and hot drinks while we waited for the sky to get clear enough to see the northern lights. If you don’t have a professional camera I would highly recommend this tour to get great pictures. Because the time can change I wouldn’t recommend booking a morning tour after this one.

10 out of 10 - Took our chances to see auroras way out in the Finnish woods, scored a beautiful light show.

Amazing northern lights experience in Rovaniemi, Finland! Tour guide Chris Dernoncourt was excellent, he provided the aurora forecast before the tour via email. The chances of seeing auroras were not good and we were told the same, on our first night out we went to a special viewing place and while the auroras started soft and slow, the auroras became stronger and changed shape as the night went on. We enjoyed a beautiful aurora light show into the night and took plenty of pictures - 10 out of 10.

Highly Recommended if you want to see the Aurora

Chris was awesome. Due to COVID we requested to drive separately, and he offered to meet us close to where we were staying outside of Rovaniemi instead of asking us to drive all the way into town. He was prompt and courteous and when we met he took time to explain where we were going and why he had chosen that location. Upon arrival to the location he explained how the Moon that night could affect our ability to see the lights, but would be great for some other photography. He helped up setup our personal cameras for the best settings to be able to capture the Aurora. Once setup, he showed us how to find North based on the stars and provided a lesson on the importance of the stars in the arctic region. Throughout the evening, Chris took any opportunity to teach, including building the fire using flint and steel, how the Aurora appeared, different constellations, and interesting facts about some religious views about the Aurora. I highly recommend this tour, Chris was amazing and took some wonderful photographs of the Aurora and of us and was quick to send those images.

20/02/22 Très belle expérience ! Un grand merci à Chris , qui nous a parler des aurores boréales avec passions , en étant très clair dans ces explications qui a su répondre à toutes nos question , à l’écoute et patient avec chacun d’entre nous . Nous avons pu admirer les aurores et nous attendons les photos avec impatience. Il n’a pas hésité à faire des kilomètres pour que nous puissions voir ce beaux spectacle. Merci aussi de nous avoir appris à faire du feu sur un lac geler , ou l’on a pu griller les saucisses et des chamallows . Une aventure qui restera gravée à vie dans nos têtes .. Marine et Gabrielle

Il top di rovaniemi. Veri escursionisti che non fanno questo lavoro solo per soldi, a differenza della maggioranza
Guido_D

Escursione fantastica, esperienza unica nonostante non abbiamo potuto vedere l aurora boreale..i ragazzi della nordic odyssey sono i migliori. Abbiamo provato anche le altre compagnie per fare escursioni in questo viaggio ma questi ragazzi francesi, a nostro parere, fanno la differenza. Se cercate qualcosa fuori dall ordinario, bambini permettendo, soprattutto se non è possibile vedere l aurora, causa condizioni meteo, i vostri soldi sono cmq ben spesi. L escursione viene leggermente modificata per non farvi perdere i vostri soldi e il vostro animo. A differenza di tanti altri che vi ci fanno credere inutilmente fino alla fine anche quando è impossibile vederla. Di solito i gruppi non sono super numerosi e il ragazzo francese che ci ha portato nella foresta di notte è super preparato in tutto. Abbiamo camminato per circa 4km nel bosco con le ciaspole, e ci ha dato lezioni vere di sopravvivenza e non solo. Tra le persone migliori conosciute in un escursione. Abbiamo avuto la fortuna anche di traduzioni tecniche in italiano grazie ad una sua amica che ha partecipato con noi.
