a friend and i booked this trip as it was recommend bij one of the employees at the info center that this trip as well. so glad that we chose this one! Apo was our guide and Gole our driver. We drove up north and I want to compliment Apo’s flexibility and able to shift gears, while he was bringing the campfire stuff over the lights appeared out of nowhere, he jumped into action and took the most amazing pictures! Followed by a lovely campfire. If you’re looking for a tour book one here.

Having travelled with another tour company in Tromso, I felt disappointed with NNT. To be fair it was a bitterly cold night and most of the clients sat in the bus for most of the night, which made it hard work for the guide to get the people to enjoy the brief sightings of the NL in Finland. Meetup was much later than other companies, with a stop-off in Tromso to watch a video about the aurora's this was informative but potentially you can be missing 2 hours of NL, which I would have been disappointed with, if it had been the night before when you could already see the lights in Tromso at 5pm. We left Tromso at 7pm and returned from Finland at 4am, so be prepared for a long cold night. They provide clothing but no shoes or heat pads. The guide appeared knowledgeable about cameras, but the quality of his photos was poor, in spite of his quality camera. These are sent to clients the following day. This is the guide's first season so I expect that he will improve. Jarek, the driver was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We appreciate your kind comments about the guides energy and enthusiasm dispite the cold weather. As for the other feedback, we will take it into account to help us improve. Concerning your comments about pick up times and what the tour includes, we recommend that all guests read the tour description carefully so as to not cause any wrong expectations. We state clearly that we pick up at 06.30 and include a visit to the historical centre for a group briefing and video about the aurora before leaving Tromsø. We also mention that we include thermal suits, but we do not mention including ny other clothing equipment. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the photographs, this is unusal feedback as all our guides are well trained in night photography. All the best, Northern Norway Travel

We did the chase in a group of 8 people total. Apo was our tour guide and Jarek our driver. They kept looking for the perfect spot until we found a place with a clear sky and without any light pollution. There we waited while having some Norwegian food and drinks, until we saw auroras :) Apo took some great pictures of all of us and the auroras with a nice camera, and also explained us how the auroras form. 100% recommended!

So yesterday nite we did the Northern Lights chase in a mini bus with 15 other guests... The night started out very promising and only 20 mins out of City we were able to spot light activity ... But suddenly out of nowhere came snow clouds and we had to activate Plan B, Plan C to ensure that we have a view from any possible place. We were lucky to hv some sightings in between whenever the clouds would part... But dats all thanks to our wonderful guide Juan Carlos and d assigned driver. Could not have believed wat a difficult task it is for the guide... Taking important decisions on routes to take especially on a tricky night like yesterday, taking innumerable pics in d stark cold wen we were loath to take our hands out of the gloves, setting d campfires so we could be cozy !!! We had made stops at 3-4 different spots last night and were finally able to have some clear viewing at 12:55 in the night... All thanks to the relentless efforts of our guide. Highly recommend dis tour operator.
