It was an incredible experience. We went with few opportunities to see the Northern Lights because the weather was not very good, even so, Vidar and Silvia took us near the border with Finland, in a place where there were no clouds. They offered us hot soup, snow suits, and cookies. They told us stories about the trolls and magically the auroras appeared. They took a lot of photos of us and took their time with us. Without a doubt an incredible and unforgettable experience. If you want to see the Northern Lights in Tromsø, never doubt: GO WITH THEM!!!!! Thank you Vidar and Silvia for that magical night! A hug from the Erasmus students! (🇩🇪🇮🇹🇪🇸🇫🇷

It was a coincidence to have a tour with Vidar ( best tour guide ever ) at that moment. Everybody said that you have a slight chance to see the Northern lights due to weather. But with Vidar, we did it !!! Picturize it in your mind that you have a camp fire on the ice and having a troll story with the hot soup. Best one was for sure, amazing moments under the northern lights and he has took very professional photos of each of us. Thank you Vidar and Creative Vacations...

Going on a small group trip with a photographer and an aurora chaser is the way to go. The tour with creative vacations was a superb and unforgettable trip. Vidar really knows that what he is doing and he is doing it with all his passion and kindness. He takes time for everyone of the small group to get the perfect settings on every camera, so that it's easy to get nice and high quality pictures. Furthermore he explains everything what was asked in a perfect way. As he and his wife speaks several languages, it will be easy for everyone to talk to them. Creative vacations has all the equipment needed for the cold weather. After the tour you'll get his amazing pictures as well. As an award winning photographer he knows how to take unforgettable pics. So when you are in Tromsø and you book a tour, go with him and not to others which will charge much more for less experience.

If you're wondering whether to do this experience or not, I'm going to help you: do it. Just do it. I swear, you won't regret. Vidar and Silvia are great, they are extremely professional. Vidar is going to explain you how to perfectly take a picture of aurora, and he's also going to take stunning pictures of you. Plus they will provide you suits, shoes and everything you need not to freeze outside in the cold. Trust me, if you do this, you're going to remember this experience for the rest of your life. 101% would recommend.

Nothing is coincidence! Random lady in another country just recommended them. I arrived Tromso Feb 15th, my northern light app says: GO! I contacted Silvia, which answers immediately. Still a place for me in that day's tour. Vidar and the other awesome guide speak more than 10 languages, OMG. Awesome! And there we were: since 8pm watching Auroras... 11pm watching them dance over my head. We even had a bonfire under a norther Light. Creative Vacations knows their stuff, they are Champions! Rock my world. Thank you for your kindness and AWESOME service. If back, I will contact you guys. Thank you! Here is a small sample of what we lived yesterday.
