JJ was our tour guide who picked us up from outside our hotel. He was super friendly and answered any questions we had as we drove for a couple hours to escape the clouds. He was constantly keeping in touch with other tour guides who would say if they had a sighting of the lights. We stopped initially at a location in Norway and the cameras picked up the northern lights but we couldn't really see it by eye. JJ took photos of us and of the lights but then we kept driving further. We drove into Finland and then to the Swedish border where we stopped and had the most incredible display of the northern lights. They were really strong and lasted for quite a while, dancing across the sky. JJ took plenty of photos (which he emailed the next morning) and we had lentil soup and a hot drink. Definitely recommend this tour to everyone, the guides are very passionate and knowledgable!

Jurre Jan de Wit was the captain of our awesome tour to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. He did everything possible and more to make the experience a lasting one. Took us to beautiful places and to a wonderful spot where we could admire, for a long time, the sky amazing spectacle. He was very respectful of the surroundings, good at explaining the phenomena that was ongoing above our heads and a very skilled photographer. Thanks fro a great experience.

Brilliant tour, we did this for our first northern lights tour. Cloud cover was really bad that night but we will saw the lights and our wonderful guide made sure to monitor cloud cover and lights activity for the duration of the evening. He even brought home made soup, biscuits and we toasted marshmallows by the fire. Loved it so much! This was a great experience and I can’t recommend enough.

What a wonderful evening! JJ of Greenlander was an awesome guide - very knowledgeable about the lights, handy with an axe for splitting wood to make a fire, a careful driver, and a wonderful attitude and wit to keep us going when the aurora wasn't dancing. He also provided a fantastic soup around the fire, and is a brilliant photographer! We had one good flush at about 11pm, then we moved to a less windy spot, and just past midnight the sky exploded above us for an hour! Quite the most spectacular natural phenomenon I have ever witnessed. I would recommend not to take photos and rather experience the lights as they are, rather than through the lens of a camera. JJ's photos, which are supplied free of charge after the tour, are going to be better than yours anyway! We were an international group - I'm from South Africa, and we had Italian, Singaporean, Chinese, and an American - with a great chatty vibe and the entire night's experience was magical. I highly recommend this tour. Greenlander rocks! I have attached a couple of JJ's pictures.

As great as it gets! Marcus was an Amazon guide and also an amazing soul ✨🙏🏽✨ His knowledge on the lights was so on point and we had the most amazing time under the Northern Lights! I was even calling him “Magic Marcus” 🙌🏽 Can’t wait to get back!
