We spent 4 days 3 nights chasing Northern lights: 2 nights hunting and 1 night viewing at the Aurora village. We called the local operator to find out the difference between hunting and viewing, and the choice of 2 night's hunting was perfect: we saw the lights on both nights.
The Aurora village viewing was a rip off. We sat in the heated teepee from 10 pm to 12:30am, doing nothing, seeing nothing. Some people chose 3 nights viewing, saw nothing at all.
Artic Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Very helpful.
We enjoyed the whole trip. The operator is ArcticTours, our driver and guide Windfred was very nice. We went for Aurora hunting for two nights. The third night was with the Aurora Village tour. We saw just a little bit of the light and the light was very weak. The camera sees it better than our naked eyes.
