We had a great experience with our search for the northern lights. Our guide was very helpful in setting up our cameras and giving up tip to get the most from our pictures. My wife who was reluctant to come along had a great time. The suits provided were a little worn and some had holes in the lining and not easy to get the right size. Overall, we had great experience and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again with the service.

This was an excellent tour and the level of service I got from "Get Your Guide" was phenomenal. The tour was conducted by a local tour company but booked through Get Your Guide. The tour was excellent and so was the guide. The tour lasted about 4-5 hours and the guide was determined to give us a good time. He was friendly and extremely helpful. He helped us set up our cameras so we can get the best shots of the northern lights. He even fed us -- cooked hot dogs, and roasted marshmallows. We also had hot chocolate, tea, coffee and soup.

Fun tour, Philippe is a great guide who managed to find us lights in very tricky conditions! I was so impressed. He also tried to get us up the mountain so we could camp on a frozen lake but the weather was against us :) so when I get back to Tromso for the whale season, I am definitely requesting frozen lake camping with my northern lights chase :) thanks for great photos Philippe, you're a star. Wiktor is a great driver who managed to get us out of a sticky situation when we got stuck on the ice, and even though he fired me from onion duty I still think he's a very nice guy :) thanks for a great time! Don't forget to tell Halinka she makes excellent soup.
