This was our very first trip to see the elusive Northern lights and it was simply marvellous. Thanks to Mother Nature, of course, because we DID see Aurora Borealis in its full glory, but also thanks to our fantastic guide Roy. He is a genuinely kind and generous guy; so passionate about his job – and it shows! With great driving skills on tricky wintery roads; a bottomless “treasure chest” of food (BBQ kept us happy and sufficiently warm), he was looking after us in all possible ways - providing insulating winter overalls if needed, professional ‘techno-help’ with taking photos, making sure we were OK and didn’t miss our chance with Aurora.
We also had an opportunity to meet (and talk to) his wife - such a lovely and hospitable team they are!
I can certainly recommend their services to anyone longing for adventure. THANK YOU!!

We had an amazing time. We drove for some hours until we found a good spot. There, we were served local food and Roy (the owner and guide) also cooked salmon using wood fire. After some time the guest of honor showed up. Aurora Borealis!!!! Lots of pictures were taken to save this special moment. I totally recommend this company.

Chasing the northern lights with Roy was an excellent experience. Despite the unfavourable forecast Roy did manage to drive us to the places offering the most chances to see them. We even get into Finland. Finally we did have a great spectacle.

Additionally the fact that Roy is a great guide, all his knowledge and explanations about the local nature and the dinner around the bonfire make the experience even better.

Totally recommended if you visit Tromsø.

We are so lucky to have been able to book our tour with Roy. He is a local, so he knows the area around and a lot of stories. He is also friendly and welcoming.

We love that it is a family operation as well. His wife Reetta came to pick us up in Tromsø and then he took over.

He asked us what we wanted to eat/drink and bought food and snacks.

He made a fire and we had a barbecue and hot beverages. We had such a great time.

He also made sure everyone wasn’t cold and took very good care of us.

He also went above and beyond to make sure we saw the northern lights, and took us all the way to Finland. It was an amazing trip!

Thank you again Roy and Reetta !

We went on an aurora chase with Roy during our vacation in Tromsø. He planned a perfect trip by choosing a quiet place in the countryside near a fjord which was sheltered from the wind so that it was not too cold to enjoy the night out. He gave us warm clothes and lit a campfire where we kept warm and had a wonderful barbecue with hot drinks while waiting for the northern lights (there was plenty of food, but the salmon Roy cooked for us was delicious!). Eventually, aurora came out and gave us quite a long show: Roy also took beautiful pictures of us! He’s a very nice person and does everything to make your experience comfortable and fun (during the drive, he gave us lots of cookies and snacks). We had a really good time and would definitely recommend Roy and Reetta’s tours.

We had an amazing experience with Roy. He had so much knowledge and was so warm and friendly. He kept checking if everyone was okay or needed anything.

We had an amazing campfire where we could barbeque the huge amount of food that Roy brought and topped off with amazing homemade cookies made by his wife.

Had a lovely viewing of the lights. Would definitely recommend Roy for a Northern Lights Tour.

Our guide Roy was very welcoming and nice and was very enthusiastic about trying to find the northern lights or aurora borealis. On the day of our tour, it was very cloudy and we already had assumed it would not be possible, but Roy’s confidence allowed us to see the aurora. Even though we had to travel very far away. 10/10 would recommend

Our family of 5 had a really good time with Roy. We join the Snowshoehike & Northern Lights Chase. He and his whole family are very nice to us.
The whole day tour is worth to join. Roy leads us to the forest with the snowshoes. Because my parent cant walk very well, Roy walks slowly and keeps asking if we are okay. Arriving the forest, Roy makes the fire and gives us some corn and burger to barbecue. Roy likes to talk to people and knows our different culture. He treats us as his friend, unlike the commercial tour company.
After the walk, Roy allows us to play the snowboard and cross country skiing around his house. It is a bonus for us!
We had the dinner in Roy's house and the dinner is so yummy! We like the salmon very much! After dinner, Roy drives to chase the northern light. Unfortunately, the weather is not good. We have an excuse to come back again. We highly recommend Roy's tour! The price is reasonable. A chance to escape from the busy life and find peaceful in the woods.
