Great night
Jarek the guide was very good, explaining lots of facts not only about the lights but about the country. He drove us for about 2:30h to find a clear sky. Unfortunately even with an amazing sky the lights didn’t appear, but it was a great experience.
The only reason why it wasn’t a 5 stars its because they didn’t serve soup or marshmallows just snacks with a hot chocolate.

Searching for Aurora!
Feb 2020
Well done Alexandra for ensuring we saw Aurora! our first tour by a different company was cancelled, so we had to research again and found Aurora Tours, 2 men on the tour had downloaded the Aurora app so with that, plus Alexandra's contact at the main office computer although we drove through snow most of the evening we arrived at a hill and clear sky and watch the lights for 1 1/2. Lots of photos and we could have as many of ourselves as we liked all emailed the next day. Great driving by Alexandra even when distracted by the passenger in the front seat! Even with good shoes and gloves I got cold feet and fingers so best to keep moving around while watching.

Amazing experience with wonderful Aleksandra
Feb 2020
When we started our trip it was cloudy and snowing, so we were afraid of not seeing the northern lights, but Aleksandra drove us for about two hours to find a perfect place. We stopped at the beach and at the begining the weather still wasn't good but soon the sky cleared and we saw plenty of stars and soon after the Aurora appeared! It was an amazing phenomena! Aleksandra is a wonderful guide, she was able to find the ideal place to see Aurora and she could answer all our questions not only about the northern lights but also about the area. She was busy all the time setting a fire, preparing delicous snacks and drinks and helping with taking lovely pictures. It was an amazing experience with a perfect guide. Highly recommend!

What an Experience !
Feb 2020
Our guide Alexsandra met us at our lodge outside of Tromso. It was a cloudy evening and any chance of seeing the lights was slim. However, she drove us an hour away to a remote area where we parked up, put on our winter clothing (supplied), lit a fire and within 10 minutes the sky lit up. We stayed for around two hours watching the lights and eating local delicatessen and drinking hot chocolate (supplied). Alexsandra took many photos for us to remember our trip and emailed them to us the next morning.Forever grateful to Alexsandra for this fantastic once in a lifetime experience.

Don’t lose hope...
We went on this small group adventure with Jarek and did not expect to see the lights due to snowy, overcast conditions. Jarek educated us on the Aurora and we had a lovely campfire and local snacks. Just as we had resigned ourselves to appreciating the adventure....the sky cleared and Jarek sprung into action. We have amazing pictures to remember this once in a lifetime experience. Don’t lose hope...trust your guide. Highly recommend a smaller more mobile group like this one to find the right locations.

8 Person Northern Lights Tour with Jarek
Feb 2020 • Friends
In all my 67 years, this event with Jarek and chasing the Northern Lights just may take top spot!!! His contagious enthusiasm and determination to show us what we wanted to see was above and beyond excellence. The excitement and fun is indescribable, the snow storm, the beachside, up to the mountain where the sky would clear, there were the lights, even on a most doubtful night he came through. He took beautiful photos and I must add that his driving was perfect. Jarek rocks!!!!!!

Great trip
Feb 2020 • Couples
Our guide Jarek was great. He was courteous and fun. He drove well and chased the lights. I’m not sure if we were just very lucky or whether he was good at spotting the right places, but we saw the lights on several occasions in different places around the islands. He even took pictures of with the lights. Provided us with warm clothing. It was terrific.

Very good tour with a very nice tour guide
Jan 2020
We booked a private tour to watch the Northern Lights with Aurora Tour and at the beginning we were a bit sceptical as Aurora Tour is (much) cheaper than some of their competitors BUT we were very surprised how good and flexible the organisation of our trip went by short notice and how nice and eager our tour guide Alexksandra was. She was on time at our hotel and tried to find as many nice spots for us as possible (even in difficult locations), offered us good food and drinks in a very kind and friendly way, helped us with our camera to find the right settings and made very nice pictures of us which we were able to download afterwards. In addition, we were super successful watching the Aurora!!! All in all – a perfect tour with very nice and professional people to a very competitive price!!!

Tromsø Northern Lights Tour
Jarek was wonderful. He worked hard to find us the Northern Lights in very cloudy conditions. I would highly recommend this company. My only criticism is that I booked this through Viator but the trip was actually done by Aurora Tours so there was some confusion at pick up as we didn’t know the name “Aurora Tours” and Jarek didn’t know the name Viator. Overall, we had a fabulous, enjoyable experience!

Comparing 4 different companies this was a total fiasco
Jan 2020
Did you see the Aurora ?: Yes, we did it!

Bottom line: Compared to the other three companies, this one was a TOTAL FIASCO

Tour Details:
We stayed 4 nights in Tromso and reserved 4 companies to hunt the Aurora (we booked since November evaluating several companies through Tripadvisor and some travelers’ recommendations). Unfortunately, we chose this company because of some old qualifications we saw on TripAdvisor and the website they have, then we discovered that it was a person behind a website auroratour.no
The tour started badly from the previous day when I sent the size of my wife's boots and dresses and mine (in the other companies, even one of them, they asked us for this information in an online form), an email sent from auroratourtromso@gmail.com (not from the website domain) appeared telling me that the tour do NOT include boots ... and mentioning that we would start the Tour very late (19:00), the other companies started from 17:30 which allowed us to travel further from Tromso and reach appropriate places outside the light pollution and clouds .
The day of the tour, surprisingly we received a last minute email saying that we would start at 18:00, fortunately I was very aware of my email at the hotel and a person arrived who was finally the guide and the driver of a Minivan (the other companies had a Minivan with a certified driver and official guide).
The Minivan came with two ladies from UK, in the row two, this vehicle was not comfortable and the distribution of the seats was different from the other companies, the Minivan of the other companies was for 15 passengers with two chairs in one side and a chair on the other, so that you can walk along the Minivan, the “Van” of this company was a vehicle with two uncomfortable chairs next to the driver (where we were located), a second row of 3 seats with side doors and there were other rows behind without a door so in order to reach them you had to recline the chairs of the second row.
Fortunately, we were only 4 passengers, I cannot imagine when that Van is completely full.
We started our journey and unfortunately just at 19:30 there was a Northern Lights activity, and it was not the “driver / guide” who realized that, it was one of the UK ladies who looked out the window and realized the activity, the guy parked at the edge of the road so that we could go out and have a look, we saw the Aurora despite the low clouds. Then we moved to another point where this person planned to make the fire, since he was the driver and the guide, we had to help him carry the chairs, unfortunately the point where he took us was even more cloudy, so we did not see more activity again. He made the campfire and brought us on a tray cubes of cold sweet cheese, cold salami and small pieces of COLD cinnamon rolls, unlike the other companies that had utensils and hot soup in a metal thermos with a lid, this guy didn't have it, the “delicious hot drinks” he offered us was: hot coffee (he had a jar with little instant coffee), a hot chocolate (it was instant chocolate) or Tea, he had only one hot water thermo and cardboard cups!!!. Unlike the other companies that offered additional hot chocolate with cookies.
Being 9:00 p.m. after being in a bonfire with wet and icy feet because he had no boots for us, he says “you paid for this Tour, I do what you want, if you want we go to another place or if you want we return back”, The disappointment was great, we looked at each other among the four and decided better to return to Tromso early.

We pre-paid for the service approximately the same as with the other companies, so it allows us to conclude that it was literally a robbery and it is not fair that other people traveling from far away fall back with this company.
We were 4 nights and only two nights we could see the auroras, one of those nights was with this company and it was a total robbery and we wrote this because it is not fair some other tourist could choose this kind of company having the chance to have another option. Fortunately for us we had the chance to compare different options and if we return we definitely will pick a Greenlander Tour it was an exceptional and more personalized service, the others despite not having seen the Auroras, they fulfilled a good service, a good vehicles and the right staff and stuff to do it.
Just to finish this robbery, we received photos from the other companies, with a high quality DSLR camera, one of them pre-edited and were wonderful, we received from this company a JPEG (no RAW format) of a really bad photos of the Aurora, you zoom it and will notice a bad quality a noise of the image, so if you really see the Aurora with clear skies you probably will receive a very disappointing photos from him.

your opinion is one big lie. And my company, unfortunately, does not give money as other companies do for people who blackmail us with opinions. All the information you write about is completely untrue and I see that you also managed to learn English in a few days, because being on my trip you could not speak English well. Certainly that's why you didn't get acquainted with my trip plan which is only for a maximum of 8 people and not like other companies have up to 18 people. Writing that my car, the new vw caravella is not comfortable you can see what you mean. On this day you were the few people who saw the aurora borealis !!! so the main attraction after which she bought the trip was realized. No words for such untrue opinions, all the more so because the people who were with you on the trip were happy that we found the northern lights. !!!
