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

Thank you for your review. Oh, yes I read that bit. If people find the information on on my website useful, it just makes me happy. We have been blessed wiith a lot of clear skies and good displays in January this year. It mean I can consentrate on the tour and camp instead of searching for clear skies. It... 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. He is extremely knowledgeable and assisted greatly with our camera settings to best capture the stunning Northern Lights. I just posted one of my Aurora shots from the tour here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/toshio1/12161165484/ For an absolutely amazing... More

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

Kjetil is a great guide. There are countless tours you can take while in Tromsø, but Kjetil knows his stuff. From what I observed by going with him two nights in a row, Kjetil and a couple other guides that are his friends, are really the ones that know what's going on with the NL, where to go to get...

We were in Tromso, like half the world, late in December to see the Northern Lights. We booked two different guides for two consecutive nights (a Saturday and Sunday.) We were glad we did because both of them were excellent and entirely different in their approach! This particular night with Kjetil, we did not see any major Aurora activity, but... More

Thanks for your feedback, Brandon I'm glad to hear you had a good time even if the northern lights didn't filled the sky. It is just so much more out there and even if I try to explain this to people, they need to experience this for them self. To sit on the beach(rockly or not), listen to the silent... More

We met Kjetil outside the Radisson Blu as planned and we headed off under heavy grey and rainy skies. After going west and then east we found some breaks in the clouds as we headed towards Finland and saw the Aurora. It was quite pale to the human eye but time exposures showed their full beauty. Kjetil takes small groups... More
