  2. This company is 100% legitimate . January 24 2019 we did the 10pm northern light tour. They found us lights right away, let us stay as long as we wanted and we took some amazing photos, I would highly recommend this tour company and the clear wagon they use was unique and comfortable. We actually stayed out a little longer than the 3 hrs that was described in the brochure and they were so kind to take us back to our cabin in Kuusamo afterwards. Take this company and make your northern lights dream come true, we are happy we did!
    Thank you for the fantastic memories 👍👍👍👍👍

  3. We booked a northern light tour for March 17th (Sunday). As the chances did look great for that day Sami already contacted us in the afternoon to reschedule the program as the forecast was better for Tuesday and Wednesday. He came back to us on Tuesday saying that the chances were the best for that day. Even if we did not ask for a pickup in advance he came to our place to pick us up. On that night we were his only clients, so we ended up with a private tour. Hhe did really everything for us. He explained everything and gave us more insight and information about the northern lights. His friendly, welcoming and open personality made us feel very well straight away in the beginning of the tour.
    Eve if the sky cleared up during the night the lights did not show up. He offered us some very delicious sweets and home made carrot cake with hot drinks around the campfire in the middle of the forest. We cannot be grateful enough for everything he did for us. I truly wish him and his team lots of success in the future and I really do hope that as a super host he will have plenty of satisfied and happy clients as he is doing his best for the tourists.
    I know that several companies in and around Ruka are offering northern light tours but if you want something really special and unique then take the tour with Sami and his snowmobile wagon from where you will have an amazing look towards the night sky. Even if the lights won’t appear the tour is alone an unforgettable memory.

    All the best Sami!

    We had an expedition booked for another night with another company, but we heard that our chances were better for that night so we decided to book another expedition and found a leaflet in the hotel. We are so happy we did!
    Sami and his wife were such great hosts!
    He came to meet us in the hotel and immediately he made us feel comfortable, he took us out away from the lights and we got to see the open sky with the beautiful starlight, that in itself was magical. We then went on to the hut where we kept warm around the fire and they brought snacks and a hot beverage. He explained what the different animal tracks were that we saw along the way. We didn’t have high hopes to see the northern lights as you can’t control nature but we did see them on our way back!
    We just want to say thank you to Sami and his wife for taking out and giving us this great experience.
    Definitely recommend them!
