A new Guide

It is my great pleasure to share with you, that my good friend Tarja Prüss will be guiding the Aurora Basecamps in March and October for Salamapaja starting this year. Tarja has roots in Finland and lives in Germany. She is very knowledgable about the Finnish culture, loves the nature, photography and luckily also the northern lights ? Anyone participating tours with her will be in good hands. Welcome, Tarja!?
