This tour was outstanding! My fiancée and I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights and were not disappointed in Feb 2016. The guides know everything there is to know and are more than happy to take the time to speak with you. Absolutely epic tour and people! Cannot recommend enough.
Very knowledgeable and friendly crew, thanks for a pleasant experience.
I like that they have several sites to view the Northern lights from which does improve the chances to view them. The tour guide are very knowledgeable on the subject and also offer advice on how to successfully capture the northern lights with your camera. There were also options to pre-purchase a hot meal and also offer a hot drink. Having a warm room when it's cold outside was also a great feature.
I liked the tour so much I went back again for a second time.
went all the way to tromso just to see the lights, and I did !!!! happy bunny
the guides were great
Amazing. The show began immediately we arrived and lasted all night. Alexandre, the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and extremely helpful to everyone setting their cameras. Brilliant tour would love to do it again.
Leading up to this tour i didn't hold out much hope of seeing any lights, as the day before and the day i went out it was cloudy and snowing for the most part. But they take you out to base stations away from the city, and to my surprise, only an hour away, we got clear skies and had a good showing of the lights. Amazing to see. I paid for the meal, which was a surprisingly nice fish soup, the only problem was that i didn't want to waste the time in the hut to eat the soup in case i missed more spectacular lights. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate were available, as was the free use of tripods for your camera if you didn't have one. I certainly made good use of that.
One of the greatest tours I have ever been on.
The lights were fantastic and our guide even set up a camera clinic for those with problems, the whole evening was just fantastic. Great tour Great Guide, Very well organised.
The tour guide and host were super friendly, knowledgeable and all around awesome. Although the weather conditions weren't optimal, our tour guide, Siri, and our hosts were upbeat and very optimistic. Didn't see much of the Northern Lights, but would come back again!
Although it was cloudy, our guide ensured we got a glimpse of the Northern Lights.
Guide was extremely knowledgeable, helped us with our cameras to get the best pictures, and made sure we all felt welcome.
Great tour with a fantastic guide!
The folks running this were fantastic - with the option of multiple camps to pick from you have the best chance possible to see the lights. Even though the night we went was cloudy, we were able to get lots of good photos of the Aurora Borealis being away from the city lights. Fantastic Seafood Bisque for supper, hot chocolate, and cinnamon treats. Restrooms easily accessible, tripods to share... worth the money.
Good value for money as it's much cheaper than private tours and you will see the lights either way unless it's completely overcast. Apparently there are different basecamps that can be used depending on the forecast which is another bonus. Our guide was friendly enough but didn't mention that we could have had our photo taken for later download so not many knew about this. A group photo would have been fun. Thermal suits and tripods are also available if needed but take warm clothes and a decent camera. Overall a good night--clothes smelt of campfire smoke days later!
We did see the Northern Lights! No luck till on our way back when they appeared. The driver pulled over to a layby as soon as he could. As the night was cloudy a lot of the time we were fortunate to see anything at all. Of course, the show wasn't as bright as it can be but we did see something.
The tour was great. The host and the driver were really accommodating and helpful and the guide provided a lot of great information. I was led to believe that the provided meal would be more substantial than the fish soup, however the soup was delicious.
Our guide, Ricardo, was great and had a lot of useful and interesting info about the area, the aurora, etc. We went to a great basecamp about 45 minutes away, great reindeer soup and delicious bread and lefse, ability to purchase beer and wine. We sat by the fire and talked and walked around the area a bit. The only drawback I found was that there were too many people - 2 or 3 buses ! With one bus say 50 people it would have been more intimate, but with over 100 it was kind of ridiculous not enough place by the fire, or in the hut and made it a little more chaotic. We sort of saw the lights, they looked more like moving clouds but green in the pictures. Ricardo was great helping set my camera so I could get a good picture. A pretty good experience all in all, just too many people.
This was a good trip although we didn't get to see the Northern Lights. We went to a basecamp where there was somewhere to sit inside if it was too cold. Hot drinks were provided. There was also a camp fire outside to keep you warm if you didn't want to go inside and miss anything.
Pleasant guide and well organised although the size of the coach meant that the route to find the best show of the lights was restricted
Enjoyable evening with a great tour guide who was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We experienced brief flashes of the northern lights but not a spectacle on this occasion - cloud cover counted against us.
Whilst I realise that there are no guarantees, it was obvious on the night I booked that there was no chance of lights, as predicted by aurora forecasts. A two hour drive in the rain to sit for a couple of hours in a cabin then come back again. I didn't book food -felt left out. Should be canceled.
