We chose this service on a not so very good day (weather wise) but the guides kept their attitude very positive and guess what? We witnessed the aurora for about 30 minutes. The guides keep checking forecasts and take you to many different spots to make sure you witness the beautiful phenomena They take pictures and share for free so... More

we went with Arctic Guide Service for two trips - one Northern Light Chase and second watching herd of reindeers. Both trips were organized perfectly - we were provided with all information needed and some tips and hints. What's great also is that on every trips the guides are making photos which are later sent to participants so you get... More

Had a great time on this aurora chaser tour. We went on four aurora tours in tromso (Northern Shots, Tromso Safari, Kjetil Skogli and Arctic Guide). Tromso Safari and Arctic Guide were the best. The Arctic Guide Service tour guides were informative and friendly. Told us about the city and the aurora. The driver took us out to three great... More

I truly recommend this experience. It's long and cosy, and as a tourist you'de hardly get the chance of going to more remote areas (dark areas) to catch up the nothern lights. Also, the guides also ensure you have a good, safe and entertaining experience. A must-do in Tromso.

We went to Tromso chasing the northern lights, we decided on this operator by recommendation of our hotel, we were sorely disappointed. What we bought was a tour with 8 people max, in a small vehicle, with food and gear included; when we got there it turned out that it was a bus with 45 people, no gear at all... More

Dear Bianca, There is no single Arctic Guide Service product description which offers: "a tour with 8 people max, in a small vehicle, with food and gear included" Our tours are in buses with toilets with two guides and a driver, hot chocolate, cookies and free pictures of the excursion. This is written in all our brochures, website, and explained... More

After pricing various tours online I decided to book with Arctic Guide Service as they had great value. I was not disappointed! Our guide Sara was great, she gave us a lovely concise history of Tromso and explained the phenomena of the Aurora. We were brought to the first place but after about 3 hours and only a flicker of...

My Wife and I were in Tromso for 4 nights and we went to the offices of Arctic Guide Service to enquire about seeing the Northern Lights. The Guys were totally honest and said they would not take us out the first 3 nights as we would not see anything as there was so much cloud cover. We kept going... More
