ACCOMMODATION (Quite cool) Airbnb cozy house near the city center. Northern lights are very well seen from this house. Single beds or not (if you're a couple, a double bed and private room can be arranged for the first couple signing in). These kind of activities run out quickly, I already booked ours, for 6 TripMates and me. Let me know if you have questions about the trip in the Q&A section! Looking forward to hearing from you!
