Northern lights chasers, Tromsø - season 2014/15

It`s some years ago I did a similar overview over all providers who do a Aurora chase in Tromsø, but here do you have a new one. Last time it was around 8 providers in the city, and today it`s around 20 companies who just do the drive, but totally in Tromsø there`s around 50 activity companies if you includes all who runs another activities too.

I have found most of the information on http://www.visittromso.no - but, some of us are not member there, so you have to Google for more information. And some of them are title with nicknames. This number (2012) is the year they begin to run NL tours in Tromsø (I think I have all the years right...).

The above data is rather misleading with regards to Tromso Safari. This company has evolved from Natur i Nord which has been running NL tours for nearly 15 years, since long before the recent boom in Arctic tourism. They are certainly not a new and inexperienced operator. I believe their Aurora Base Station concept is unique.

Yes, that true, Norsc, Ivar was the first NL guide in Tromsø who start already in 2002, but his Northern Lights Bus was not listed on Visit Tromsø`s website, so therefore I didn`t wrote his tour on the list...

Not sure why, but I have heard he has quit his own tour and use all his time only for Tromsø Safari.

By the way, Kjetil Skogli, is also a part of this new 50 seats company - a cooperation between this two guys and Bussring.

All the years are when the different companies begin with NL tours, not when they begin in travel business!
