This experience might be the most memorable of my trip in Tromsø. The guide was really great, gave clear and simple explanations and was totally passionate in northern lights ! Embark on board and wait for the spot, then go out, wait and watch that life time experience !! I highly recommand that activity with that organization. They didn’t hesitate to wait longer at the spot and it paid: the real northern lights show was only beginning and we would have lost this opportunity if we had left earlier. Everything was great :)

One of the most magical experiences! Very much appreciate Stefan for making our dreams come true by finding the lights with help from forecasts and calling friends in the field. He was very informative and had great energy for an enjoyable experience. We had a two-hour show we could have never expected!

This tour was brilliant! We were able to switch the days since the weather conditions were so bad. Magne was an excellent guide, so knowledgeable and a lovely person. We found the lights within an hour! Magne took photos for us and also helped us take our own photos. P.s wear lots of layers of clothes!

An amazing day with our guide, even though the weather was against us, we kept moving and found sunshine and amazing views.

Super kind, helpful, nice and prepared guide. Fantastic places. Recommended.
