It was a very memorable experience witnessing the aurora borealis right in front of our eyes. It was magical. We are so blessed to have a great spot to see the most wonderful show on earth. Thanks to Andrei our guide for making this tour an experience of a lifetime. He was so very helpful and patient and really making sure we get the best photos . He helped us set up our cameras and even lend us tripods. He also prepared a bonfire for us and served us tea and coffee and chocolate cake and told us littlle bit about aurora borealis . When you are in Tromso don’t miss this opportunity. It is highly recommended.

It was really nice, and luckily we get to see the lights. Our guide, Andrei, was really nice and he really knew what he was doing. He drove us all the way to Finland because it was clear up there and managed to find a beautiful spot. He was being very informative too telling us how northern lights occurs and we had everything needed for the tour, including the campfire and snacks and great pictures! Even learned a bit about camera/photography from him. Recommended!

Wow an experience of a lifetime. Andrei took us 45 mins away from the city. We were lucky with the weather it was windy but Andrei found a spot for us. Andrei told us facts about the Northern Lights. We had a hot drink and carrot cake near a camp fire. We did see the Aurora danced all night. Andrei also took some photos and emailed to us. I would definitely recommend booking with Andrei, he is knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Thank you for the lovely evening.
