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!

A long and difficult journey across the top of Scandinavia from Norway to Finland and back searching for a gap in heavy snow storms was finally rewarded after midnight with an amazing display over the fjords close to Tromso. The trip was well organised and very informative, Ricardo and Anita would not let us go home without a view of... More

A great experience.Travelled on 17th March, deep in to Finland, where we eventually got great views of the Northern Lights.Ricardo, our guide, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.We were given all the latest information, but warned that cloud cover could still cause problems, but we eventually got our shots. The long drive makes it a long night, but a really good experience... More

We booked twice with this company on the 16 & 17th March 2015. Our first tour was more local and we stopped at 4 different locations. The conditions were good in terms of clear skies however activity was low to none most of the evening. We did see some activity but it was barely visible to the human eye, you... More

I understand that there are many rave reviews for Arctic Guide Service, and it does seem a bit nasty for me to put an average here, but I believe in giving unbiased feedback. To be very honest, they were NOT BAD. They just didn't live up to my expectations. If your aim is to catch the northern lights without a... More

If you're in Tromsö and want an amazing Northern Light experience then I warmly recommend you book with them. The team is passionate about their job, friendly, they do all they can to manage expectations by honestly letting their customers know early on what weather conditions they expect, the chance of you seeing lights, they thoroughly go through all the...

Aurora Chase tours are so well managed by them. They have super energetic and enthusiastic guides with amazing knowledge about the Northern Lights and photographing them. We had carl & Veronica as our guides for the evening. Unfortunately there was no activity that day but the experience was beautiful.
