It took a lot of driving by the coach driver and patience by us but we were rewarded with a fantastic ethereal display of Northern lights from horizon to horizon ....superb. There are no guarantee's of seeing this perhaps we were just very lucky

We just walked into the city centre and this tour was available. We boarded the bus and our guide/ driver drove us across the bridge on Kvaloya island. It was quite overcast so they drove further up north to find clear skies. Around 11 PM we saw a faint glimpse of the lights before they disappeared. They drove us back... More

We went on this tour on the 6th of February. We had booked this tour before we arrived in Tromso and on the day we had been advised that the chances of seeing the lights was very slim as the weather forecast was cloudy. We wanted to give ourselves the highest number of chances so we went anyway. Our guide... More

We joined the norhern lights tour in a very bad day. There was a huge snow storm. When we booked the tour, they said we don't have much chance. But northern lights was the reason why we went to Tromso so we didn't give up and joined the tour. Our guide was incredible and he didn't give up. We drove... More

We booked this tour after finding most types booked out and all the appsa said there was a possibility of seeing the lights at 12.00am. Comparing this tour with others we went on it felt like our guide didn't really have a strategy. We just seemed to stop at car parks on the northern light route that was big enough... More

We booked our Reindeer excursion and the Northern Lights Chase tour with Arctic Guide Service, both on the 5th Feb 2016. One of the best thing we'd ever did! The reindeer excursion took us around 6 hours starting from 9am where you will gather at the office. The driver was very meticulous and we felt safe throughout the whole scenic... More

Have again been to Tromso and again went chasing The Northern Lights. Helpful and polite staff give you advice on when you'll get the best chance of seeing the lights and will try different locations every night in order to see this amazing natural phenomenon. The guide each evening gives any information required about the trip, along with tips for... More

We joined the Northern light tour in February 2016. The guide was very good, giving a lot of info and driving us to a couple places. You have to be lucky as the sky has to be clear, there has to be solar activity and it has to be dark. We saw the Northern light in two of the three... More

An amazing tour, very well organised, yet very spontaneous with the stops when the Lights started playing in the sky. Plenty of information and tips on the city, region, Aurora and photography, as well as a very friendly time. A breathtaking view, whether a photography aficionado, or simply an observer lying down on the snow and enjoying. Thanks again, Anita... More
