Set out from Tromso on a hunting tour of the Northern Lights. Join a small group and a guide in a fun quest to 'chase down' the Aurora Borealis, traversing the nearby countryside and even into Finland to catch a glimpse. After finding the right setting, gather around a campfire, warm up with some soup, and await the spectacular night light show. Your guide will also offer some tips for best capturing the Northern Lights in pics, and snap some that they'll share as souvenirs.
We enjoyed our tour a lot although we did not see much of Northern light. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We went to a lovely location by the lake. Unfortunately there was a lot of clouds that night and we only saw the glimpse of the light. The small group was perfect. We got warm suits, some people got also warm boots. We had hot chocolate and soup. We saw wild reindeers. We had a fire in the middle of nowhere. If we saw the light that would be icing on the cake. We wanted to go again the next day with the same guide, but tour was all booked out. The treatment was very personalized.
when we got on the mini bus, Tom our guide for the evening informed us we would have to travel up to Finland to find clear skies.
This we did, periodically stopping for Tom to check the sky. Once we reached a decent place to stop we all put on the Thermal suits and boots provided by Tom and started to observe the clear sky, apart from the milky way we were not fortunate to see the Aurora.
The hot chocolate, cookies and Reindeer soup were very good, we could not fault the commitment of Tom and driver Alesandro who kept pushing north in the quest for clear skies.In total we were out for 9 1/2 hours, Toms knowledge of the lights is excellent. We would certainly recommend Wandering Owl, we plan to return to Tromso and will certainly use them again.
The guide is amazing and very experienced. Very helpful and knowledgeable!

This was a fabulous evening with a knowledgeable guide who looked after us royally, taking us to an excellent spot to see the aurora which put on an amazing show! Worthen every penny!
Great experience made better by the guide Marcus. He knew the region very willing and was willing to drive through the night if necessary to find the lights. His enthusiasm for the topic was great to see. As it happened did not need to drive to Finland as we came acrosshe spot he knew overlooking a fjord with tremendous views and the light show started. He was so enthused by the lights and was very keen to take his own photos which got us all excited and he helped us all set up the cameras to ensure that we recorded the show. Once the lights calmed he set us up with hot drinks, a campfire soup/stew and cookies. He kept us entertained as the weather became older and added to the experience of the lights. Great lights, great guide
Unfortunately because of weather we were unable to see the Auroras but we learned so much from Hein about the weather, photography, the Auroras, and even wild animal behavior while on safari in Africa :. Even without the Auroras, the late night beach bomb fire, the company of fellow travelers and an incredible guide, the warm homemade soup, the delicious homemade cookies and hot chocolate made this evening one of our favorite memories of our trip to Norway.
I went to Tromso to celebrate my birthday with the sole purpose of seeing the Northern Lights. My tour guide was fantastic and really made the experience fun. He initially took us to a stunning place to see the lights, but unfortunately clouds came in. He immediately recognized we needed to relocate and once we were back in the car was quickly headed to another spot. The second spot was equally as breathtaking as the first and we were able to see the lights. The reindeer soup was fantastic and I am not sure what the cookies were, but they were homemade and addictive! I highly recommend Wandering Owl and I am so glad I got to see the Northern Lights on my birthday.
Even though we suffered re the cold being out late at night in remote place, the knowledge of the guide was excellent on both the northern lights as well as set up of the camera which meant I got some of my own excellent photo's. Definitely recommend to see the lights in small group tour.
Really great tour. Traveled with my 78 year old grandma and Matias really took care of her despite the fact that we were slowing down the tour. I was new to my SLR and he really taught each and everyone of us how to capture the aurora with our cameras . He provided us with snacks and a wonderful dinner.
