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

Went in February 2014. Kjetil picked us up at the hotel and we drove for75 mins to where clear skies were. We saw the northern lights briefly before the clouds came . Waited for three hours and saw them briefly a second time . Kjetil helped me to set up the camera and I got a few decent pictures

Keen to maximise our chances of seeing the lights we booked this tour in May last year. Kjetil took us to a (frozen) beach location, helped with adjusting our camera settings to optimum to best capture the lights. We were lucky to have clear skies and to see the lights almost non-stop for 3-4 hours and the opportunity to take... More

Kjetil Skogli is amazing Aurora Chaser! He took our group to an beautiful location and pointed out the Aurora as soon as we pulled up.

We booked a tour with Kjetil many months back because we heard of great reviews. Having to travel a long way from South-east Asia, we wanted the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights and knew that an experienced guide with a good track record would give us that opportunity. And we were right! Admittedly, whether one can catch the... More

Thanks. The guide is a very important part of the tour,of course, but I always say it is not only the guide who make the experience and the tour. It is also the guests and their participation in relation to the other guests, etc. I have been blessed with wonderful guests for years and this tour was not an exception... More
