About
The Arctic Moments is a concept created by naturguiden.no, a local company with guides from the area serving guests authentic experiences in their backyard. Through this concept, we strive to work in line with the Norwegian and traditional "friluftsliv" philosophy. This might be described as adventures with a rough- and unpolished luxury, where the luxury arises from a quiet intimacy with untouched nature, in a remote and beautiful environment. Our adventures are all about a high-quality, personalized & handmade experience made by locals for guests coming to the Arctic.

What a wonderful experience. The host contacted us in advance when the weather forecast made it unlikely to see the lights and set up a new date with us. He picked us up, took us outside the city and to a few spots to see the lights. It did not disappoint, we saw some great northern lights and it turned out to be the only time we saw them on our trip. The soup was great and the host shared great knowledge all along the way. His expertise, kindness and flexibility was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for a more intimate/less commercial was to chase the lights. Couldn't have had a better time!

Thanks Sydney :-) We got lucky with some early lights on a cold and clear start of the evening. Give my best to the family.

We really enjoyed our northern lights chase with Reidar, even though the weather did not cooperate and we did not end up seeing the lights that night. But Reidar was an amazing host and guide. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and it's history, and is very friendly. He took us out to an area near the coast where he built us a fire to sit by while we waited for the lights. He brought snacks and his car was comfortable. He even showed one of us some northern lights photography settings on our camera while we waited. We highly recommend this experience.

Thanks for the nice review, it means a lot :-) The weather sometimes can be tricky, but a nice bonfire and a good talk make the evening worthwhile. Glad you caught the lights when traveling south, and let me know if you decide to give it another go in Tromsø.

What a special time! Reidar answered all sorts of questions, shared stories about Norwegian context, and navigated us to nature immersed areas for optimal lights viewing. With his experience, we were able to position ourselves to see some incredible sky activity - and even with some tasty hot soup. Thank you Reidar!

Thanks Aron. We were lucky to get very good lights on one of the last days this season. A cold, but very nice evening. Let me know if you ever pass by Tromsø again :-)

We spent a all week exploring Lofoten, Senja and the Tromso area … the scenery and the feeling in these places are fantastic.
The highlight of our trip was our guide/ driver Reidar.
He is simply the best … knowledgeable, kind , and great company to be with, we are highly recommending him and we definitely be back.

Thanks a lot Moshe. It was a very nice week, only the weather could have played more along :-) Enjoy the warmer weather in the States, and let us do Finnmark next year. Best regards, Reidar

Although we weren’t lucky enough to see any northern lights, we had a magical evening sitting by the fire overlooking a beautiful fjord earlier this year. Reidar was very kind, thoughtful, and an all around excellent host / conversation partner. Would recommend this tour regardless of if you can see the lights, we do not regret it! He is a great photographer and captured the moment beautifully.

An amazing experience at an incredible location. Reidar shared local food and drinks, great stories and a special location with us. The northern lights were spectacular and we were blessed with good weather and a nice fire to sit by the sea. It is the perfect private experience if you want to get away from all of the big crowds and your groups, we had the beach to ourselves! Reidar even went out of his way to find some reindeer at the end too! Thank you for this experience :)

Do yourself a favor and do not hesitate to take this excursion with Reidar. From the communication months before the excursion date to the actual northern lights hunt itself, the entire experience was phenomenal! We cannot compliment Reidar enough for his expertise, thoughtfulness, and overall amazing personality! Not only did we gain amazing memories but we also gained a new friend in the far north!

Reider and hannah were excellent guides who took us on a evening snow hike.
Unfortunately we didn’t see the northern lights but it was still an excellent evening, both challenging and adventurous , we were all tired at the end but also exhilarated by our journey.
Despite the tough terrain at no point did we feel unsafe due to the calming presence of Reidar who is clearly very knowledgable about all such things !
Thank you for a memorable evening , the delicious cake and drinks.

Thank you for your nice review, it means a lot to us that you had a good experience. You where the best guests, and again thank you for your patience as we had to go for plan B due to weather - and a bit more physical adventuring :-) I wish you a nice time in the east, and happy travels back home. Kind regards, Reidar

In this tour, our awesomely bearded guide Mr. Reidar took us to a tranquil valley south of Tromsø, to capture the best aurora pictures.

The place was extremely cold that day, with the temperature falling to -25 degrees celsius, so we waited inside his warm car until we saw hints of light appearing in the sky. Inside the car he shared interesting stories and information around the place, also providing us tasty norwegian cake lafser and a warm tea.

When we saw the northern lights, we were able to take some beautiful pictures with his help and also from the pitch dark environment that enhanced the lights in the sky.

Overall this activity was amazing and I would highly recommend this to all who wants to capture the northern lights under the best condition with the best,
most sincere guide in Tromsø!

We've spent the best time in Tromsø with Arctic Moments!! Reidar (our guide) is the expert of Northern lights and tours in Tromsø. He knows a lot of great places to see the lights and he is also skilful to take beautiful pictures. I really appreciate that he provided us hot drinks and local cakes while we were watching the lights. We could see the beautiful lights several times during the 3-hours tour. Finally, the tour was really cozy and funny because Reidar is a reliable, humane, and humorous person. I really recommend Arctic Moments if you stay in Tromsø!!
