We had an amazing experience chasing the lights with Christian. The weather was really bad in Tromsø but our guide really did so much efforts (and kilometers) to provide us with the best spots imaginable. He explained a lot about the lights and how to take good shots. He also took amazing pictures of our little french group for which we are really grateful. Regarding covid-19, we were asked to bing a mask and used a private van (we were 6). We had a student discount. I highly recommend this tour since the lights are hard to see from the city and the guide was really nice and helpful ! Emilie.

Just got back from Tromso and I have to say this is the best tour company to see the Northern Lights. Not only are the guides knowledgeable, but they weren't afraid to move to a different location to ensure we got to see it. How do I know? I met people who went out on the same night didn't see anything, but we did! Thanks to Sara and everyone at NorthernShotsTours. You're the best!

A massive thank you to Tom and Barbara (for those oldies out there not the ones from the good life) Both were knowledgeable on how to set cameras up to achieve best possible pictures Company supplied a limited amount of tripods but would take your own After 3 unsuccessful nights we were rewarded with a fantastic lights show If you are looking to see the lights then this pass makes perfect sense

Our guide Tom was extremely helpful with setting up cameras and spoke to each individual on the way to our viewing spot. We missed the hot chocolate and cookies as would have to leave our cameras set up and trek back to the bus. Am looking forward to the next few days and hope they are as enjoyable.

We did the evening your which laste just over 7 hours. Dedicated and informative tour guide. No guarantees to see anything, but we experienced a spectacular aurora show towards the end of the evening. We spent some time outside, and it can get pretty cold standing about. Make sure to wear good warm boots with thick soles. It was my feet that got cold. But you can always get on to the bus to warm up a bit. All in all a great trip.
