It is a spectacular experience, they do not give the eyes to capture so much wonder. The tour was pleasant, the attention of the guide Andrea of the Company Lofoten Lights. They are of those unique experiences in life. I recommend Reine with its landscapes, all the way to see the mountains reflecting in the water, the wonderful sunset, mixing among the clouds, the sun of a very intense orange color. The houses contrasting with the landscape. Everything is PEACE

It was very interesting, there were no very strong lights, thanks to the insistence of the guide Andrea we managed to see and enjoy them. Andrea the guide was very friendly, willing at all times to give a good service. We went to a beach to see the Northern Lights, I recommend this company. They are good professionals. Thanks to Andrea !!!

Extraordinary

Eric, our tour guide, he tried way beyond to find the Northern Lights but as the Tour says "chase the Northern Lights". He made sure that we were comfortable and that there was a bathroom break as well as offered coffee and cookies. Incredible service, information - outstanding

The beautiful excursion although it was a risk on our part to travel in December since the weather conditions quite condition the activities. In any case, it is a unique experience to see how they can live with so few hours of light in the polar winter.

We had a great time. The guide, Andrea, took good care of us.
