Me and my friend joined a tour for northern lights chasing. During the debriefing section, they provided us information about chances for seeing northern lights. And, if you think the probability's too low, you can either get refund or re-arrange for another night. With 20% chances to see the lights, me and my friend still continued for the tour. With...

It's a great experience to get to meet the same people and learn more about their culture, we get to feed the reindeers and take pictures. And also we get to learn how to catch a reindeer using the rope. Interesting experience. At least I get to see and learn something that I don't have back in my country.

Thoroughly enjoyed our night out in search of the northern lights. The trip out of town was about 2 hours each way to the observation locations. The distance away from Tromso was required to get away from the city lights and to find a location without cloud cover. We were joined by approximately 25 other northern light seekers plus two...

Brilliant evening chasing the Northern Lights. Fortunately we saw a really spectacular display from the "Tricky Lady" which of course colours the flavour of this review. However Ricardo and Anita were great guides and everything worked out well. I was advised by the company to wait an extra couple of days to go on my tour as the weather forecast... More

For an insight to the Sami culture of Northern Norway, this was the perfect trip. Friendly and professional guides, seamlessly organised, and an experience that wouldn't be possible without their local knowledge. Highly recommended.

We got driven to a Sami reindeer farm, they had a big herd of reindeer. The guides let us into the herd and we were able to feed them. It was a lot of fun and great experience to encounter the reindeer very close. The guide also made beautiful picture, which get posted on their Facebook page. The guides/owner of... More

It was an incredible experience, since the beginning. In the first day we went there the guy in the office told us that was very unlikely to see the lights and explained why, and he strongly recommended to go in the next day. So we did, and no regrets. Ricardo and Veronika were the guides, very kind to everybody; they... More

My friends and I were pleasantly surprised that RIcardo and the group waited for us at the airport, considering that our flight to Tromsø was very delayed. We were blessed with clear skies, so the group did not need to travel all the way to Finland. We saw the Aurora for almost two hours. Both Anita and Ricardo were very... More

At first we were a little concerned at going out in such a large group but it was not a problem as Ricardo the guide gave personal attention, checking our camera settings and offering to take individual photographs, which we were very pleased with. Although there was low aurora activity he was determined that we get the best view we... More

Amazing trip. Even with only 10% chance of seeing the lights due to cloud cover, the team still took us out and after a long drive to the Finland border we had a spectacular display! Ricardo was a great host, nice hot chocolate and good tips on taking photos. Looking forward to next time!
