Wondering Owl organised an excellent aurora hunt. They took their time to find the best spot with clear skies, no light pollution or crowds of other hunters. We were rewarded with a northern lights display that kept on giving. Karolis & Mike were very helpful...More

Thank you Fernando for being a lovely, funny, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide which made the tour unforgettable. Not forgetting the driver with the amazing playlist while leading us towards the amazing night and the delicious soup prepared for us.

Despite highly unpredictable weather, this experience in the middle of arctic fjords was just wonderful and authentic. As a photographer, I found so much potential in the scenery we were able to see. We traveled in a small group with an amazing and very professional...More

Thanks to Fernando for the wonderful experience. We had another tour to Northern lights, but nothing to compare with Fernando's tour. He's the best, so lovely, so cute, well organized...everything was excellent with him.

Wandering Owl vs Polar Adventures (4 Replies)
Hi everyone! I'd love some input from people who've experienced both: I want to book 2 nights of Lights hunting and 1 daytime Fjord trip (by vehicle, not boat) in February. Both Polar Adventures and Wandering Owl offer packages for these 3 trips. WO is 4215 NOK and PA is 3000 NOK, which is a substantial difference. Does anyone have some advice to point me to which is the better experience? I like the vibe of the WO site, but I'd hate to spend the extra money if the 3 tours aren't above and...More

It can be as simple as one is a smaller group. Unlikely that someone on the forum has done both (or even any of them), so I think your best bet would be to read the reviews.
