Spectacular Northern Lights in Finnish LaplandA review of Menesjärvi - Wilderness Auroras during the Finnish Autumn by Jacqueline Jeynes05 September 2018
Unsure whether the autumn would be a good time to see (hopefully!) the Northern Lights - aren't they usually found in Arctic winter skies? Well, I needn't have worried. The glorious colours of autumn in Northern Finland, within the Arctic Circle, has to be one of the best options. Fantastic colours in the trees and skies, all starkly reflected in the smooth surface of the lake at the remote Hotel Korpikartano, bright blue skies during the day and inky-black clouds seeming to hang heavily in the darkening sky. This is a wonderful location to really feel and understand the people who live and work here, and of course, it is an amazing place to stay, even for just four nights. Brilliant photo-opportunities of course, from the jetty leading out into the lake that looks unreal with reflected clouds, to the orange glow of sunset, and the amazing Northern Lights that surprise you with their shifting green shapes. This is a fantastic trip, a beautiful place to experience, plus the extra opportunities to see reindeer and husky dogs. Even though it is not freezing at this time of year, it is very cold standing outside until midnight with your camera, so you do need the warm gear. I only have a digital camera and although it is a good one, it is clear that your photographs will be much better with the one you can change to finer settings. But, I saw the Northern Lights and although the photographs are not brilliant, the experience was! Definitely recommended.

Overall very good indeedA review of Saariselkä - Northern Lights Village - Tailor Made by Susan & Dixon Dilley07 April 2018
Overall very good indeed. All good and difficult to choose but Snow Shoe walk very interesting and informative. Excellent trip - shame about the Northern Lights! Just a little taster one night but very little of a display - will have to return!

We had a great time in NellimA review of Nellim - Aurora in the Wild by Evelyn Swan Lim & Friends05 April 2018
We had a great time in Nellim. Everyone was very friendly, courteous and helpful. We are very happy and please with all the activities provided and the friendliness of the staff. We were lucky we got to see some northern lights but even if we didn’t we had a great time and we’re able to try our hands on the different activities you guys put together. This will be one of our memorable trips.
