We booked two tours during our vacation in Tromso. On both days, I didn't think I saw the Northern Lights. The first tour took us to the Finnish border. We saw wonderful little northern lights there. The second tour started in a snow storm and we drove to the Skibotn area. There Kira found a gap under the starry sky, and we were able to marvel at the northern lights for two hours. Kira and Robert, the drivers are a well-rehearsed team. Kira is a seasoned Northern Lights hunter. During the trip she told us a lot about Norway and the people there. For me two wonderful tours that made my dream of the northern lights come true. I can 100% recommend the tours.

Do not get impatient, you can rely on the experience of the guide‼ ️. The support regarding the setting of the camera values was also very helpful. Both our guide and the mini bus driver were a great team. The location for photography was optimally chosen. , Only we and nature. Thanks‼ ️

We were extremely lucky. By which? With our guide Kira, who spoke super understandable English and, as German, perfect German. Kira gave us some background knowledge about Tromsö and the Northern Lights during the trip and helped with the perfect camera setting. We were lucky with our driver Robert, who always made sure that no car ran over us if we took a snapshot of the Northern Lights and skilfully left all the reindeer on the side of the road. We were lucky that we were able to experience such a spectacle in the sky despite the full moon and initial clouds (33% probability according to the app). We were lucky that our originally booked tour was full and that we took the Northern Lights tour a day later. Happiness to be in the right place at the right time. Small 15-man group, aurora borealis, tea and cake, delivery service to the hotel, reindeer in the wild, if that is not luck, it is a memory for life.
