Our tour guides, Max and Marcin, we’re absolutely amazing! We saw the Northern Lights dance and light up the sky bc of their expertise and commitment to the job! You can tell that they both love what they do and they did everything to make us two Floridians feel at home and comfortable in sub-zero (Fahrenheit 😂) temperatures with a fire and some Reindeer sausages. Plus, Max was an amazing photographer and captured absolutely stunning images (which he shared with us at no charge) to help us remember such an amazing night.

They completed our trip and we wouldn’t have been able to see the lights at full power like we did if not for them and their willingness to work with us after our flight was running late!

10/10 would recommend this experience; 101/10 would recommend if you’re able to get this duo of guides!

(Attached is an example of Max’s incredible photography from that night)

Martin and Rohith were amazing upbeat and excited about our adventure. After arriving early and setting up camp Rohith was very optimistic as it was starting to clear we all set up our cameras and were ready. Back to the fire for tea/hot chocolate and reindeer hotdogs. As we finished it began to snow and eventually heavy sleet. Another 8 tour groups started to arrive and were determined to stick it out. Not us,the guys made the call to go chase and we did. 3 hours of spectacular snow driving in a blizzard by Martin and Rohith found stars and at midnight as we exited a tunnel to was the most epic thing I had ever seen. We had over 45 minutes of lights,photos and chatting about our experience before boarding the bus and returning to our hotel. Thanks for the memories!

Great tour with Max - he was very prepared and passionate. The minibus was the perfect size and the suits and boots kept us warm. Max and Voitek adapted to the changing weather conditions so that we were able to see the lights!

I will never forget this night. When we left tromso, it was raining and snowing. I am not sure I even wanted to go on the tour anymore as I didn't think we would see the lights with the cloud cover, but I went along anyway resigning myself to sitting by a fire with hot chocolate as an experience in itself. The guide seemed very experienced and he assessed the best place to view the lights. We ended up in Finland and to my amazement, we saw the lights, on two occasions. A night I will never forget. My time in Tromso has greatly exceeded my expectations, I highly recommend to book this company, of course there is never any guarantee you will see the lights, but with a little hope and much planning, you may just get lucky 🌌

Can't thank George enough for all the effort he put in to chasing the lights and making this an incredible experience. We were picked up from our hotel and taken on a road trip to find the best place to spot them. The weather wasn't looking very promising, however George's knowledge and enthusiasm found us the perfect spot just over the Finnish border. Once there, we sat around a fire eating reindeer sausages and cookies, caught the lights and shot some great photos. Even on the way back when most people were sleeping, George was keeping an eye out for clear skies and light activity, puling the van over every now and again to check. Can't recommend this tour/company enough, nothing was ever too much hassle and it was a great way to end our visit to Tromso!

To experience the Aurora in the flesh is a dream come true. Well worth the drive. And hanging around on the edge of a frozen lake with a fire pit to cook food on, in the middle of nowhere, listening to Max's vast amount of knowledge on the Northern lights was an experience on its own. Michael and Max are both friendly, very knowledgeable and amusing guides. My children aged 12 -23 all said it was the best trip we've done so far. We can highly recommend a trip with Norther Horizon.

We are so glad that we picked this tour of the many providers available! Max was amazing as a guide - his photography knowledge and geological knowledge really enriched the tour and made it unforgettable. Michael also did a great job navigating the icy conditions and making sure the whole experience ran smoothly. Together they ran a fantastic tour and we felt completely looked after and they helped us to capture unbelievable photos of the lights. The food, bonfire and thermal suits were also really great. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience, guys.

My experience with them was amazing! Max was very knowledgeable and took us to a place only 2 hours away where we saw the most incredible lights. My friend and I got there late and didn’t have time to drop off our luggage at our hotel so they brought it with us in the van so we didn’t have to miss the trip!

Once we found a great spot we sent up a fire, roasted sausages, ate some good cookies, and had the best hot chocolate ever. We also got some really cool pictures thanks to Max, the photographer who joined us.

Booking with this company was truly one of the best decisions I made during my time in Tromsø, I highly recommend them, you won’t regret it!

Thank you for the memories!!! Max and Woitek did an amazing job at keeping the group energized, positive and warm throughout the long and sometimes cold aurora hunt adventure. Really liked the level of knowledge and communication through the night. Certainly exceeded any expectations I had for the tour and would definitely recommend using this group for a future adventure. Thank you so much for driving us all the way into Finland, for hosting an unforgettable adventure, and for bringing everyone one back safely.

This was an awesome tour! Bert was an amazing tour guide and Kamil was an excellent driver, especially in the volatile weather of snow and rain. Bert was extremely knowledgeable about anything and everything. If you asked him a question, he’d be able to answer it with flying colors. The weather was tough, but Bert and Kamil found a way to get us to a clear spot to see the northern lights! Bert was able to take some beautiful and artistic photos, capturing amazing moments. We’d highly recommend this tour to friends and family.
