Wonderful experience, we had the chance to see the Northern Lights. it was a magical sight. The guides were top notch. special mention for the driver. She was adorable with our baby and she drove us back to our car because it was too slippery for the little one. Thank you for this extraordinary experience

The guide was really nice, he helped us in setting the camera and we got to see the northern lights away from the city. Cookies and hot chocolate drinks were served. Bus was warm and we were able to go inside the bus whenever we wished. Guide took two rounds of photos for everyone as aurora was constant. It was an amazing tour but I am still waiting for the pictures even after a week. Initially they said we will get the pictures by Monday, but still waiting for it after a week. Hope we get it soon

The guides knew a lot about the lights. We left Tromso in pretty bad conditions, but managed to see beautiful lights. I wish it was not so close to Skibotn, the lights from the city was a bit disturbing. You can go back to the bus anytime you want so you can warm up a bit. The guides also let you know when the lights are super strong and invite you to take pictures of you. They send them 2-3 days past the tour, they looked lovely.
