We didn’t see much of the lights, probably only for around 5 minutes on the camera but it was quite cloudy and Mother Nature can’t be helped. Hot chocolate and cakes were great. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the lights and took us to the best spots to wait. Mini bus was

Being at a specific base is not the best choice to "hunt" the northern lights. The guide told us they almost all the time go to this specific base because it has the best weather conditions in the area. Unfortunately the weather was very bad(snow and clouds). We waited all night

Good morning dear guest, thanks for finding the time to write us. The Aurora Safari Base Stations is our comfortable tour for aurora: thought for those people who prefer warm shelter, toilets and relax without changing places during the night. We usually pick the base 1 hour before the departure, in order to get the one with the best weather forecast. Then, mother nature does the rest and we cannot control that, same for northern lights. There, you can notice how much the guides (driver and host) do for the guests so that they can still enjoy the experience, no matter the weather conditions :-) Have a nice day.

Disapointed with this trip which was cancelled one day, rearranged and then no lights to be seen. Im sure if the lights had appeared all would have been forgiven, but with hindsight and talking to others, it seems some other trips are more inclined to stay and see if the

The forecast wasn’t great weather-wise, however we drove for an hour and a half to a reindeer camp. The lights were out as soon as we arrived which was exciting. The stay at the base camp felt excessively long in cold conditions given the lights came out more than once, 3-4

How good to hear you got to see the Aurora with us, even several times throughout the night. We understand that staying at the camp for 3-4 hours seem like a very long time when you get to see the lights early on during the stay at the base camp. However, the lights might show ut later, be stronger, moving, more colourful, show different shapes etc, so even if you have seen them, many guests would like to see them over and over again, since they might not get any other chances. This is part of the reason why we guarantee that the tour will last minimum 5 hours, in order to cover the time of night with the best chances of seeing the lights, Of course, the longer we have to go in order to find clear sky, the longer the tour will last as well, but maximum 7 hours. However, it seems like part of the reason you would have preffered the tour to go back earlier, is because of the cold and the smoke from the fire. This is a very good feedback to us and something we will address with the host at this particular base station. The camp should not be this smokey and cold and we sincerely apologise that you suffered from this. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the many strong links to the Sami culture you find at this base camp, including the host, his yoik (chant) and the reindeer stew (Biddos). Again, thanks for your valuable feedback and for coming along on our Aurora Safari Base Station tour. Welcome back to Tromsø. Arctic regards, Oda (Tromsø Safari)

Hello! Thanks for your positive feedback. Depending on the weather forecast, we choose the best base stations for the night and even if we drive a bit our guides are always there ready to entertain you with some storytelling and "technical" info about nothern lights :) Glad you liked the soup: our hosts, too, try to do their best so that you can enjoy the whole experience more, staying warm and cosy! Thermal suits are always helpful, but having more layers of clothes is a good decision! Have a great day and we hope to see you soon here. Cecilia
