I'm the AuroraChaser and as one of first one, if not the first one, who started with real flexible tour to chase the northern lights I have many,many years of experience doing this.Local knowlegde about the weather, professional photography and good knowlegde in astromony makes me able to give you a good experience and increase your chance to see and photograph the elusive Aurora Borealis. People has been writing about me long time before I got this profile and I actually think you find more "reviews" about me outside this profile. I also had the pleasure to work with celebrities like Joanna Lumley, Brian Cox, Queens Brain May and Roger Taylor, Fern Brittain and Globo Sportos Clayton Conservani. Feel free to give me a feedback from your experience from my tours.

Fantastic northern lights tour last night. We were extremely lucky and managed to see a fabulous display just 45mins out of the city. We continued on further out of Tromso and down onto a deserted beach where we were treated to another display later in the evening. It was great to be part of such a small tour group (just... More

Kjetil picked us up from the Radisson Blue, small group, only three couples, weather did not look promising however he was confident if we headed south of town the skies should clear later that night. We were well south on the edge of a fjord when we stopped and, as the night progressed the light cloud cleared but the aurora... More

We travelled to Norway purely to try and see the Northern Lights and based on other reviews and if Kjetil was good enough for Joanna lumley we decided to pay the extra. We were not disappointed. From the moment he picked us up at 1900hrs until the time he dropped us back at door of hotel at 0300hrs he looked... More

We had been left in Tromso without a Northern Lights excursion after an error by the Travel Company. Up popped Kjetil and offered us a place in his minibus. It was snowing hard and I had no great expectations of seeing the Lights. However Kjetil drove for nearly three hours until, over the border into Finland, we got out of... More

We had a stormy , cloudy night with limited access due to road closures nonetheless kjetil approached the night with energy and enthusiasm and never gave in throughout the night. We saw the lights in glimpses which is much more than we expected. We didn't book with kjetil but our tour was cancelled and he adopted us for the following... More

Kjetil Skogli has excellent local knowledge and years of experience, so he is able to track down whatever aurora activity there is on the night you take a tour. It was pretty cloudy on the night we went out with him, but he found some good activity for us to view. My only criticism is that he is not a... More

The man really knows what he is doing. Despite very bad weather we caught the first lights after a half an hour. After a couple of dim sightings we finally found a good spot and saw a spectacular show with different colors and the lights moving quickly. Everyone was offered a warm suit, coffee, tea, cacao and biscuits. The guide... More
