Thank you. I had read that. The thing is that I would have gone with Guide Gunnar but he is not doing any trip on the days I am there. He recommended Marcus from Arctic Fishing adventures but he is turning out to be too expensive. 145GBP as opposed to what Karina charges (80GBP). I want to understand what the benefits of going with the more expensive operator are.

Please misunderstand me right...

Nobody knows when the Northern Lights shows up... the most normal time for the NL show is between 6 pm and 1 am, but we have also catch it 3 pm and 6 am...

Welcome to the Arctic for your chase, on your own or with a guide..;)

I had to change this one.... sorry, for hurting somebody...

I think more people should check what is included in the tours before they complaining about the price.

And check also how many hours the different guides are out for chasing... Some of the tours are back in the city before midnight, and if the Northern Lights didn`t show up before 1 am, how dissipointed will you be then...

Please check this 2 if you like to have a nice chase:

http://www.arcticguideservice.no

And this ones who do the real chase:

plus... ;)

For anyone who is interested, I finally booked with Arctic Guide Service because for the cost 850NOK they stay out between 5 to 7 hours. Now, fingers crossed that we get to see the aurora show the day we are going out. After all this research, I would be so upset if we don't see the lights. But staying positive right now....

Thank you Guide Gunnar. Guess I'll have to come to Norway again when you are around!!
