For me it’s the best thing to spend my time in Tromsø with Rob and Kat for both the northern lights hunt and discover the Fjords. The northern lights and the view of the Fjords are amazing, but the more important thing is that Rob and Kat are so professional, experienced, warm and kind. They totally know how to hunt the northern lights, how find the most beautiful view, how to take perfect photos, and how to make everyone an excellent experience. And I have the feeling that they really love and enjoy the things that they are doing. I think that I’m a very lucky one to spend my birthday with them, and due to the weather we also have the honor to visit their home and their baby cat, and they have prepared a special cake for my birthday! I’m so surprised and moved, I haven’t imagined that I would have such a unforgettable birthday in Tromsø, and all of this is because of Rob and Kat. I can’t say more than thousands of thanks for everything, and I really appreciate to them. I recommend 100% to everyone who visits Tromsø to have your time with The Green Adventure, with Rob and Kat, trust me that you will have an unforgettable experience for all of your life, just like me who has just got a best birthday in my life!

Professional , Punctual and Dedicated is how I describe my dealings with The Green Adventure.
As a Travel Agent based in Australia for 15 years I know what Excellence means in my line of work.
I booked a tour with them for myself and family of 6 on a Fjords tour and I was impressed on how the tour was handled . Kat was punctual, her tour guiding is informative and personalised. I can highly recommend the company

Stop looking and book your Northern Lights your with the Green Adventure! Rob was an exceptional host; knowledgeable, friendly and with every detail covered…
Cold waiting for the aurora to show? Here’s a thermal suit and some hot chocolate. Hungry? Here’s a delicious home made soup and some marshmallows to toast. Need some amazing photos of the incredible northern lights, maybe with you in them too? He’s got those covered as well, with such patience for each individual’s posing and some epic aurora shots, far better than anything I was capable of snapping! Then need a drop off at your door in the early hours of the morning? Done.

I was so glad to be in a small group of 8, rather than any of the bigger groups, in a cosy and comfortable van, able to move faster and get to the smaller parking spots. I also feel like I walked away knowing a lot more about Norwegian culture and history too, after stories regaled around a campfire.

A truly magical evening, and I could not recommend more highly. Thank you!!

Kat was an amazing guide and we would highly recommend the Northern Lights hunt tour with her to anybody that wants to see them. She was super nice and told us all the exciting fun facts, which were very interesting. She also took amazing photos of us with the Lights. Overall just an amazing experience with sighting of stunning Northern Lights with very nice guide. Thank you!

Far exceeded my expectations. We had a small group tour and our guide was Antonio. At the beginning of the night, he told us they had not seen the lights the night before and the forecast was for heavy clouds but he remained hopeful that we might see something. We set off to a location he suspected might be good. An hour into the drive, he stopped and checked the forecast. There had been a change in the data and Antonio was more confident we would see lights if we could find a break in the clouds. So he changed plans and headed to a different location. Upon arrival, there was a large tour bus on the side of the road hoping to see something there. Fortunately, we were in a 4-wheel drive van and Antonio was able to drive down a steep, icy road to the beach. Minutes after handing out our winter gear and hot chocolate, he spotted some faint lights. Over the next 30-45 minutes lots of light appeared all over the sky! We got excellent photos. It was a night I'll never forget! After about an hour, the light faded and disappeared. Antonio built a fire and we had homemade vegetable soup and roasted marshmallows. It's a night I'll never forget! I appreciate Antonio's willingness to stay flexible and find the perfect spot at the perfect time.

We paid a little more for the smaller group tour and we couldn't be happier with out experience. Our guide Rob was friendly and knew his stuff for sure. It's never a guarantee to see the natural phenomenon that is the northern lights but we visited 3 locations and saw amazing light shows while Rob took care of us with the addition of thermal suits and hot chocolate while we gazed in amazement at the skies above us. In between Rob taking the wow factor photos of us all with the aurora background he told us all about the wildlife we could find in this area of northern Norway and the myths and legends of the old Norse world. On our last stop we came to the side of a lake (I think) where we had the cozy experience of a camp fire with Robs homemade red Thai soup and marshmallows over the fire while he told us about more facts of Norway and the Sami culture that has once been oppressed and now embraced and whaling traditions changing with change of tastes in the local population.... And of course the northern lights made another appearance while there!
On our way back to the city and feeling quite satisfied with a nights chasing complete, Rob spotted another bunch of people at the road side and pulled over just in time for us to get out the minibus and see one of the most amazing dancing auroras of the night, while I was stood there with my arm around my partner Rob was leaping into the snow like a artic fox to take a shot of this for our collection of amazing photography library for the night and then dropped us all off pretty much to the door.
One nights work for Rob has left us with a life time memory and we can not thank him enough for his efforts that night.

My tour with green adventure was on October 20th and weather conditions wasn't the best. I was really impressed by their efforts to get us to the right spot for the auroras. Overall tour lasted from 7 pm to 1 am and each moment of the tour was exciting, full of information and stories. They also help you set up your cameras. Provide you with different things to keep yourself warm (soup, hot chocolate, bonfire, thermal suits).

Kat and Rob, are super helpful as they are usually prompt in replying to emails and put in their best to answer any queries.

Lastly, we were a tour of only 8 people and which gave us enough time to interact and get as much as information on auroras. Also they also click amazing photographs. Depending on the opportunity they will click all the photographs.

If it is your dream to watch Auroras, The Green Adventure are the right people to make it happen!

Wonderful Experience! If you’re hesitant, book this tour for sure!
I went on the tour with the Green Adventure on March 17th and had a wonderful experience. This tour provides you with everything you need - from food to thermal suits to keep yourself warm.
Robert, our tour guide, took us north of Tromso to see the northern lights as the sky was clear there and probability was high. He made sure we enjoyed our time throughout the whole experience and told us stories about the northern lights and about the Norwegian traditions. He also made sure that we are all feeling warm, took pictures of us, and provided us with hot chocolate, marshmallows, and a delicious soup that his wife had cooked. We also lit and sat around a bonfire waiting for the northern lights to appear. And when they finally did (after an hour or so), it was the best show in the world and no words can describe how amazing the northern lights were.
Overall, it was a great and well organized tour. So big thanks to The Green Adventure and our tour guide, Robert, for the wonderful experience!

Phenomenal experience. Kat drove us just over the Norway-Finland border, continuing on until she was satisfied that the skies were clear enough. We stopped once along the way for a minor aurora show, and then went further south where we were rewarded for waiting patiently for the show to begin. Kat was an incredible guide — she made us a fire, took wonderful photos of us, shared homemade soup, and had materials for us to roast marshmallows with. Once we left our main location to head home, she pulled over several times on the way back when the aurora got even more vibrant for us to enjoy. I was blown away by the whole experience, one of the best nights of my life. We were so lucky to see the lights so strong with a guide so capable! Plus, it was lovely to get a ride back to our Airbnb after. Can’t recommend this tour enough!
