The excitement from the people working there was awesome, also giving great advice and support the whole way, would definitely hunt lights with them again!

It was an incredible experience. I'm glad I chose to go with such a brilliant tour. Our your guide had a great attitude and couldn't have done more for us. I've travelled for years and I can honestly say this made it to the top of my list of experiences. So just do it!!!

One of the greatest experiences of my life. This once in a lifetime opportunity came to fruition after a week in Tromso with no lights. Then on my last night I was fortunate enough to travel with Arctic Explorers and see this absolutely brilliant natural wonder. Oystein led us like Odin's ravens Huginn & Munnin to the most brilliant location... More

awesome trip, chasing the northern lights even into Finland at 1am. The guide made sure that we would see them.

Monika met us outside our hotel (radisson blu) and , after picking up a few more guests, we were driven to the warehouse to be kitted out in thermal suits/boots/gloves/socks etc .the ONLY thing I was disappointed with was that there wasn't a coat small enough to fit my 11 yr...

We went out on a Northern Lights Hunt and the girl who took us out- who was from Portugal was very dedicated. She tried extremely hard to get us a view of the northern lights- even staying with us for hours past our time. We never felt rushed and she made it a fun night. We had a meal in... More

We went out in late Feb with Øystein and apart from being a really nice and friendly guy, he is also an awesome guide! He provided us with all sorts of tips & information. He helped me set up my camera to take the perfect photo. Tripods were provided. Warm suits, designed for -32 degrees Celsius were also provided! He... More

Tromso Arctic Explorers is a local tour company which chaperones adventures I seek but would not undertake solo. My trusty Arctic guide grew up in Tromso, as did his father, grandfather, etc. This brings a level of comfort and trust to the experience. The company provides the gear and the determination needed to chase the Northern Lights up to the... More

The Arctic Explorers team were fantastic. We booked 3 nights and the guides were friendly, dedicated and just as eager to see the Northern Lights as we were. Our guide, Oystein, stayed out to 4am with us! We're heading back to Tromso in January and will definitely be booking with Arctic Explorers again.

Couldn't have asked more from the driver who took us far and wide looking for the lights. On the night when there was no chance of the lights, they didn't waste our time, but on a day where the weather improved in the afternoon, Thomas called and said it would be worth trying again. He was right and we got... More
