Northern light is a natural phenomenon, unfortunately we are not able to predict. The best time to see the northern lights is when the sky is clear from clouds. some people also said that aurora comes out when temperatures are colder. It needs all factors matach, the most important is that it requires a lot of luck from you.
Our guides will do their best leading you to chase Aurora, so there is no refund in this case.
