We went on 8th Feb. Kjetil is an excellent host and the beauty of this tour is its small size. There was only 8 of us including Kjetil - an added bonus is that it was a lovely group of people to spend time with as well. You really feel that you are getting a personalised experience. The night we... More

Enjoyed this tour because of it's smaller size and therefore less people getting in the way of your aurora photos. Also, a smaller van means you can stop at nice locations that the big bus companies can't. However this obviously comes with a heftier price tag. Overall a great tour. Just depends on your budget and how bothered you are... More

I had previously chased the NL with Kjetil in 2013 and loved the experience so much I wanted to do it again. I contacted him in September 2014 to see if he had any availability between Christmas and new year and was pleased to book two consecutive nights to chase the lights. As per my first experience I was picked... More

Kjetil picked us up on time at the designated place in Tromso. He drove us out into the countryside and told us lots of information about the local area, Norway as a whole and the northern lights, always looking out to see if there were any signs in the sky that lights were on the way (he also has equipment...

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

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!
