Our Northern Light chasing tour was arranged by Silvia and Vidar. We were greeted by polyglot Vidar and were taken to their refuge where we picked up thermal clothes and provisions our hosts prepared. We then embarked on a fantastic dusk/night drive, arriving at the Norway/Finland/Sweden border where we finally had clear sky and spotted this wonder of nature. We... More

I only did this tour because my snowshoeing tour was cancelled and the tourist office recommended the Blue Day Tour to me. I had wanted to go on a fjord cruise ideally but had limited time and agreed to go on this tour instead, especially as a friend had also recommended it. All I can say is that the Blue... More

Vidar, Silvia, and Israel are wonderful people! I booked the Blue Day Tour and Northern Lights Excursion. While Tromso has beautiful places everywhere, Vidar is a professional photographer so he has the eye on where to go to shoot to add that extra depth to a photograph. I did other Northern Lights tours as well, but Vidar's locations and routes... More

The tour is a perfect way to visit the area Tromso in a small group of maximum 7 people. Even though it was a snowy and windy day, our guide Israel was really great, he explained everything, he gave us a lot of informations about the area, the culture and the nature. He really transmitted us his passion for this... More

Fantastic trip! Vidar was a fantastic guide! After pick up you go to his house to get the gear -both the clothes and the camera - sorted. If you want to rent a camera the price is very reasonable. The you go for the hunt for the green lady. We ended up in a very very beautiful spot where we... More

A mind-blowing experience. Vidar and the team were extremely professional and showed a total focus on making the night the most rewarding it could be for us. As other reviewers have noted Vidar starts with a short brief of the key photography tricks to get the best shots as well as ensuring everyone is set for what can be a... More
