      Bucket List Adventure Did Not Disappoint!!
      Amazing tour!! Our guide, Max, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about finding the aurora borealis (Northern Lights). We actually did two nights of this tour with Max as our guide and we found the Northern Lights on both trips. Max did a wonderful job of explaining the science behind the Northern Lights. Max and his van drivers made us feel safe and took very good care of us all along the way. I have many marvelous memories from these two evenings - roasting reindeer sausages over a campfire by the roadside, seeing an adult and then a baby moose run beside us of us then in front of our van (as I mentioned previously our drivers were very safe and experienced at driving in the cold/icy conditions while on high alert for any animals that might cross our path), and of course the star of the show who did not disappoint... the Aurora!!! Camera tip - if you want vibrant color photos of the Northern Lights, take a good camera with a tripod. The touring company provided a few extra tripods in the event you don't want to travel with one. You'll need to be very still with long exposure time to capture more vivid colors. My photos attached to this post were taken with my iPhone's night exposure setting. They are OK but our guide who had a quality camera and tripod took much more amazing and colorful photos (by the way, which he emailed his photos to us afterward!!!). Thanks Max and team for such memorable adventures in Northern Lights Chasing!!!

      Worth it!
      Truly enjoyed the experience. Our guide, Max, was knowledgeable and shared plenty of factual information about the Northern Lights. He was also considerate and took our individual pictures with his own camera and shared it with us. Truly a great time and worth the experience.

      Experience of a Lifetime
      We had an experience of a lifetime. Bert and his company made sure that we found the perfect spot to view the Northern Lights/ Aurora. We so enjoyed ourselves as we viewed the incredible scene of dancing lights in the sky! We were offered a cozy warm fire to sit around and have the scientific explanation discussed and enjoyed warm drinks and food. We could not have asked for a better evening. Thank you

      Marvelous, professional and thoughtful trip
      Marvelous trip to meet spectacular northern light. Our guide Max is professional and experienced geographer and photographer. He introduced everything about the northern light and the weather of Tromso, also helped to set the camera and tripod to catch the northern lights. His commentary style is charming, easy to focus on. Besides, warm suits and boots they all prepared well that we can withstand the frozen weather. This is really a memorable trip.

      Surreal experience.
      Harry, as our guide had so much knowledge and information regarding the northern lights. It was quite impressive to see someone so extremely passionate about it. He explained the entire sky, stars and the lights to us in such an easy way. Very helpful too in terms of photography or any questions asked. He was also an amazing Astro-photographer. The reindeer hot dogs, hot chocolate, tea and cookies were yum. I highly recommend this tour with them. My suggestion is to wear the thermal suit and boots (provided by them) to keep your hands and feet warm.

      Magical experience!
      It's difficult to find words that would accurately describe our experience. This trip was MAGICAL! Even if our guide, Bert, would try to explain that aurora borealis isn't really magic, I'm still not sure if i believe him. Bert and Kamil took us to a most amazing spot in a frozen fjord to see the northern lights and took great care of us - made sure we are warm, have a warm beverage and reindeer sausage at the end. The pictures taken by Bert during the tour are a beautiful souvenir of this magical night.

      Fantastic
      This trip was fantastic. We couldn't have imagined a better guide. Michael showed us fantastic locations, without any other tour groups just for us. He has a lot of knowledge and is very warm and helpful. On the way back he played us the country's typical folk music, which was really very moving. Thank you very much for this unique experience. We recommend

      Wonderful experience
      We were fortunate with good weather and great guides so we experienced the Northern Lights in a beautiful setting. Hermann gave a good explanation of factors needed for sighting as Carolina drove us to a spot away from Tromso and predicted weather patterns that might make it more difficult to see the lights. After a bathroom break, we arrived at a beach where the lights almost immediately started. Hermann helped with camera setup and clothes boots. It was abit challenging for us older folks as the beach was rocky but seeing the lights in this setting was magical. After over an hour the lights stopped. A campfire was set up where we had cookies hot drinks and roasted sausages. We were returned to the dock at around 1am. The next day, we received the photos from Hermann There was a problem with ours which took 2 days to get corrected but it was fixed and sent to us. Excursion was 100% as described on website. Yes, a charge for guides professional photos but the pricing of the excursion for us was excellent value for the experience we received. Well taken care by friendly experienced guides. Highly recommend.

      Wonderful
      The Aurora Borealis tour with Harry and Camil provided an unforgettable experience under the shimmering Northern Lights. From knowledgeable guides to cozy fire camp with sausages & cookies, every aspect was meticulously arranged. Their attention to detail ensured a seamless adventure. Highly recommended for anyone seeking an enchanting encounter with the mesmerizing Aurora Borealis. Harry is a talented photographer and storyteller too. Thank you, Natasa & David

    This is a convenient and fun way to get out and see the beautiful surrounding areas of Tromsø, Norway. Our guide drove us to different viewing points over the course of 5 hours, stopping about half way through for some snacks and drinks on the beach. He even went out of his way to track down a reindeer we had seen wander off the main road so we could get some pics.

    Every detail of this trip was a unique learning experience! We were even introduced to some Sami music during our drive!

    Could not recommend this experience enough if you want to get out of the city for a few hours and learn about what else Norway has to offer!

    This tour was the perfect way to start our time in Tromso. Our guide Michael was very friendly and knowledgeable; he had a very good understanding of the region and was more than happy to answer any questions we had. He was so familiar with the area that he was able to improvise the tour plan to ensure that we visited the best sites considering the conditions at that time; this was probably best exemplified when he spotted some reindeer in a distance and made a stop so we could see them. The sites we visited were just stunning, and I probably would not have visited them without the tour. My only problem with this tour was the meal we received. We had some traditional Norwegian pastries, instead of sandwiches as said on the booking site. While the pastries were definitely tasty, they were not enough for a filling lunch. However, this was just a minor issue and should not take away from the overall experience!

    Joanna was a wonderful tour guide who was so knowledgable and a pleasure to listen to. We only had 8 people in our group which was fantastic. The places we visited were beautiful and an absolute must whilst visiting Tromso. The tour was extremely well organised and the photos that Joanna took were fantastic. If you want the photos in high resolution then you are encouraged to pay for them but the free downloads are still good quality. Would definitely recommend this tour and if you get Joanna then you’re guaranteed a brilliant day!

    A brilliant tour conducted by Nicola. I felt this excursion showed me the real Artic Norway. Nicola is a great photographer and knew the area around Tromso like the back of his hand - he knew all the best places to go and we visited 5 different fiords and had lunch and hot chocolate on a snow covered beach!
    We only saw seals today however the grandeur of the scenery more than made up for it. Nicola is very passionate about what he shows you and ran overtime by 45 mins because he wanted us to have the best experience.
    Thanks for a great day Nicola

    Both Guides were really phantastic. They drove us to wonderful places and photo spots. They took enough time, so we could see reindeers from very short distance. Very recommendable, if you want to spend a wonderful day in nature

    Tom was an amazing tour guide and definitely deserves a shout out. If you are in tromso for even a few days I highly recommend jumping on board this tour. There is a lot to learn and so much beautiful landscape to see. You won’t regret it. Also the best hot chocolate served in tromso 😉

    Our tour guide was Rohith, he was very knowledgeable on the wildlife and the areas. He took us to see some amazing sights such at the Sommarøy bridge and Sommarøy beach where the turquoise waters make you feel like your on a tropical island. We saw a wild elk, a massive herd of Sami reindeer and some sea eagles. I was worried that driving around for 5 hours may be boring but it was not, you got out and walk around every 45 mins or so. Would definitely recommend the tour.

    We were only in Tromsø for 2 whole days, so we spent a lot of time on choosing the right tours. We are very happy we chose this one!
    Our tour guide, Michael, was excellent, and I feel like we learnt a lot about the area, as well as local traditions. He also knew his stuff on where to go to get great views and the best times to get them.
    We were lucky to go on a sunny day and catch some amazing views, as well as coming across some wild reindeer.
    I would recommend wrapping up nice and warm if you're visiting in winter, as it can get very cold!
    Overall, a lovely way to spend the daylight hours of our 2nd day, and I would recommend this trip to others if you're looking to see beautiful views of the Norwegian fjords, and get some lovely photos too!

    We had an absolutely fantastic time with Viktor! The natural beauty of the area speaks for itself yet Viktor enhanced the experience even more with his insightful commentary and unique perspective. The portraits he took of our family throughout the day were very much appreciated. Our fika on the shores of the fjord at the end of the tour capped a wonderful day.
