I'm the AuroraChaser and as one of first one, if not the first one, who started with real flexible tour to chase the northern lights I have many,many years of experience doing this.Local knowlegde about the weather, professional photography and good knowlegde in astromony makes me able to give you a good experience and increase your chance to see and photograph the elusive Aurora Borealis. People has been writing about me long time before I got this profile and I actually think you find more "reviews" about me outside this profile. I also had the pleasure to work with celebrities like Joanna Lumley, Brian Cox, Queens Brain May and Roger Taylor, Fern Brittain and Globo Sportos Clayton Conservani. Feel free to give me a feedback from your experience from my tours.

I should start off my saying that we chased the lights over 2 nights with kjetil and we were rewarded. The weather on the first night was a litle dissapointing despite kjetil's best efforts (cloudy & blizzarding). He drove around what seemed like the whole southern coastline, reguarly checking for data and weather updates on his phone, together with making... More

We were picked up at 7pm and started our tour with the words 'I don't want to go to Finland I have been there too much recently' - not a good start for a 'chaser'! We did in fact drive to within 200 metres from the Finish border where we just sat in a layby and waited for the lights... More

So on our trip, we were expecting cloudy skies with rain/snow the entire time. Our hopes of seeing the lights were dwindling quickly. Traveling almost 4000 miles would have been a disappointment to not see them. However, we got in this van with this very determined chaser and although it took driving to Finland and not getting back to our... More

Such a lovely guy and he tried so hard to find clear sky - driving 250 km to Finland and then back again. We waited for hours and he was on and off the phone, checking the skies, but no lights came. Our small group had fun but we were all disappointed. It definitely wasn't his fault though. Nature rules... More

Last week we went out with the Aurora Chaser and had the experience of a lifetime. My wife and I joined four others on this outing - he limits the group to seven. Granted, the Aurora Chaser hasn't the power to cause the northern lights to perform, but he definitely found the perfect spot to observe them (and while we... More

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...
