Hello, we are fully booked on the Aurora Adventure and on the Blue Day Tour on February 26, 2017. If that is what you are referring to. I'm not sure what you mean by "1000 trip." Regards Vidar

Hello, It all depends on the weather and the Aurora activity. We pick up the guests at 17:30 and we are normally back in town between 1 and 4.
