“Worth every penny, and then some! The tour was well organized, right down to the last detail. Jim Balderston’s expertise, generosity, enthusiasm, and cheerful attitude made him an ideal leader, and beyond that, we genuinely enjoyed his company. We had an exquisite aurora display, but if the weather had not cooperated, I still would have felt that the trip was worth it, because the other activities (and there were many!) were so interesting and varied. I can’t wait to do it all over again! ~ Ruth Raymond, 2018 tour participant
