Kjetil Skogli's Northern Lights tour was absolutely perfect for us. He's exceedingly knowledgeable and a wonderful host ... pickup at the front door of our hotel, nice drive up to the North Sea / Arctic Ocean area where we saw the most beautiful combination views of the sunset, Northern Lights, mountains, and reflections off the water, snacks and beverages while...

Kjetil was brilliant and my friends and I really enjoyed ourselves during our two day excursion with him to chase the lights. We had sightings for both nights, all thanks to Kjetil's efforts and knowledge of areas that will yield the best possibilities. We also got very helpful photography tips from Kjetil. Having a great guide made a whole lot... More

I had booked my trip nearly a year in advance and Kjetil responded promptly to all my emails and recommending hotel accommodation. I was at the beginning if the season at the end of September and knew that the display may not be strong. I booked for two nights and was lucky to have Kjetil on my own. First night... More

After a day of rain and cloudy weather we had a magic night of dancing lights. Excellent tour by very experienced and friendly guide. Sorry no photo, my camera failed in a major way after working fine for six weeks.

If you are a photographer and want to avoid the masses with point and shoot cameras this is the guide to use. Kjetil offers a small group experience and understands photography so makes sure to get you to good spots. We went out with Kjetil for one night, but would have gone out for more if they weren't already booked!

The trip with Kjetil was very nice, he was listening to our expectations, we found several places to take pictures. Where I'm disappointed is that, seeing our little camera (poor photo quality...), he offered to send us by email pictures he took during the evening. After multiple emails, we have not received the long-awaited photos and even refused to give... More

This is the best Aurora Chase tour in Tromso, and I would give a mllion stars if I could. My husband and I went with Kjetil on the night of 28th February 2014. The aurora display was not particularly strong, but we were able to see and take some nice photos. Our group had only nice people and we had... More

Whereas most tours take 15 + people this one is limited to 6 and the guide is extremely dedicated and experienced.- if anyone can find the lights he will (that was told to us by almost everyone we came across in Tromso including other northern lights tour guides!) . He constantly uses technology on his smartphone to predict when the... More

After watching the Joanna Lumley documentary on the Northern Lights I added seeing the lights to my lifes wish list. Finding that Kjetil was the programmes guide I was determined to travel with him. We had to wait a whole year as Kjetil was fully booked, so in order to guarantee our place we booked a year in advance. We... More

Booked this trip 12 months in advance as a 50th birthday present for my wife. We booked 3 nights in order to get the best chance of seeing the lights. We spent each night in different locations, getting the best views available. Kjetil has contact with a few of the other more established guides and this enables him to head... More
