FRW Travel Tips:1. Plan your trip to a T, and make all your bookings as soon as possible. Prices remain fairly low in advance, and you’ll get an idea of what you’re diving into.2. DO NOT make bookings with any sort of agencies or tour companies that promise to show you the best sight of the northern lights. The Lights are, after all, a natural phenomenon, and it’s impossible to predict nature!3. As much as you can, try to make the trip as personal as possible. See what you like to do and be very strict about it. It doesn’t make sense to spend unnecessarily in one of the most expensive countries!4. If you’re looking to do ski adventures, dogsledding or any other activity that you cannot do on your own, book in advance! Making these reservations as soon as your accommodation & travel is paid for, they get sold out very quick!5. Layer up extra! Your quest for the Lights may take longer than you think.*To see more, follow me on Instagram @feetrunwild :)
