I chose to do the SMALL BUS TOUR. It was "perfect". Our guide was STEFAN on FRIDAY JANUARY 25, 2019. He was careful to manage our expectations during the drive outside of the city limits. He explained the SOLAR WIND and the conditions which cause Aurora to appear. He explained the variables which effect it.
He took us outside of the city limits to an area of a park with NO BIG BUS TOUR GROUPS. It felt very special. We waited outside for 45 minutes. Yes it was cold and YES we were all concerned we would not see any. One member of our tour was from NZealand and it was her THIRD night out which no Aurora the other 2 nights.
BUT AFTER 45 minutes AURORA APPEARED. It was glorious. Everyone's cameras failed - could not capture it - I loved being in the moment. THANKFULLLY Stefan our GUide had a tripod and an android phone with the right manual set-tings and he captured souvenir photos of each of us. THANK YOU STEFAN!!!!
BEST TOUR EVER
