A tricky weather forecast, but it was only one place they forecast little clear... in Finland... so, we found a hole in the clouds and just waited... and suddenly most of the sky got clear... but, with a shy lady Aurora tonight we just waited, relaxed and shot pictures of the beautiful moonlit landscape...

If you gamble, then you win sometimes..;)

I was planned to drive out on the coast for look after some holes in clouds, but changed my mind and headed into the country side without knowing where we should drive.

We headed for a valley close to the Swedish border and out from nowhere we suddenly saw the moon with clear sky around... and had a couple of hours with partly clear sky... but, 30 mins before the lady got active just after midnight the clouds cover over view... it`s pity, since I was so close to make my guests extra happy...

What what I heard, I was probably the only guide who found clear sky this night..;)

The silence in the deep forest valley was just magical... that`s what I sell for my guests...

Little tricky night with a snowstorm in the air... first I planned to drive far south, but when we should leave it was cleaering up over the city and the Aurora begins too, so I decided to drive into the snowstorm for get the first view... it was a strong windy and snowy experience and lovely Aurora on blue sky...

Then we headed south, but came only 45 km away when the sky suddenly cleared up again and I decided to settle down by the fjord at the Lyngen Alps, where we stayed rest of the evening, until the snowstorm arrived the area... and we ended the chase super early... but, the guests was happy..;)

The day after I decided to cancel rest of the season cause the goverment Corona Lockdown!
NOK 350.000 refunded to my guests... and thanks to you all who came back in 2021 for join me and my chase ;)
