We had some perfect experience with them we was 10 people in a group, Harry was our guide, with a lot of experience, on the beginning was kinda bad weather and a small hope but he just stopped with us in a spot that he knew it would be nice and some time later the big show started, everyone got impressed all the night along (also Harry!), he made also a very good fireplace, told historys about local fairy tales and talked about a lot of things. He also takes a lot of perfect pictures and helped us to configurate our camera and take our own pictures also, anyway was a perfect experience, i really recommend them, thank you for the night and I am so sorry for the accident with the camera Harry…

Incredible experience, absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting to see the lights. Our guide Mag was extremely nice, knowledgable and gave us the best experience possible. The weather was pretty bad in tromso, snowing a lot, and he was able to get us to a place where we say the lights. Then we kept driving and saw them 2 more times. The pictures he took with his camera came out spectacular, almost unreal. Do yourself a favor a book your tour with them!

We took a small bus tour to see the northern lights with a guide who is also a photographer. Stefan was a great host and very knowledgeable about the northern lights. We had to be patient but eventually not only saw the lights but they danced for us!

An excellent small group experience and we were lucky enough to see a spectacular Aurora show. Guide Harry was very knowledgeable and dedicated. Driver Monica was also great and so helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Literally went the ‘extra mile’, well at least 100 into Finland to give us the best light show. Top guide. Can’t thank you enough, Cathy, Sam and Alex
