Arctic Breeze

I am Brynjar from Arctic Breeze. I work with small groups, which gives greater flexibility for stops, activities and decision on the length of the trip. The beauty of the Northern Lights is truly striking. The expectations are naturally high from seeing many great photo illustrations. However, nature determines this phenomenon. It is all about playing on nature´s premises. Outdoor activity was always my favourite. I have extensive experience in how to read and utilize nature and the weather for having the best possible experience of the Northern Lights. Every night is different, and you will get my honest assessment of the opportunities for your evening.
