We went on 4 chases and a day trip with these fantastic guides. We had our kids ( 5, 15,17) with us.
Nothing was too much trouble and we really felt their enthusiasm and love for the lights rub off on us.
Chris's knowledge of the lights and the area is immense and every time we went out we felt he was determind for us to share the experience of the nordlys,which was undoubtedly an experience that will remain with us for ever.
But what impressed me was the whole experience, the camp fire by the fyord, the impromptu star gazing lesson we received whilst waiting for the tricky lady, the geography lesson ( thoroughly engaging for all) whilst driving, the folklore tales ( still being retold).
Everybody on our tours were individually catered for, we were all made to feel special and we ALL had a trip of a lifetime.
If you get the chance to join these amazingly engaging people on a tour or two DO IT , you will NOT be disappointed
Thank you Chris and Becki you made our trip and we can't thank you enough

Five stars to Chris and family as aurora chasing guides! This, despite lousy weather luck for most of my trip. I spent 3 nights with this crew and we were hampered by solid clouds and blowing snow for two of them. Chris made a huge effort driving around in challenging conditions, which finally paid off in a big way on the third evening. Aurora Addicts have the local roads and conditions dialed and really put that knowledge to good use. In additions, Chris and co. were very easy to communicate with and so friendly. Definitely the tour to go to if you want to find the aurora in Vesterålen, Norway.

We contacted Chris before traveling to Norway, and set up a Northern Lights excursion and a day trip also. We had a great time with both excursions! Chris is knowledgeable, dependable, professional, and was attentive to our comfort and our needs. He knew great places to take us to see The Lights, and the trip was a success. The next day he took us to a small village, and was happy to stop en route for food and pictures. It was a fun day, thanks to Chris and his endearing manner and his expertise. I recommend this experience whole-heartedly.....your life won't be complete until you have traveled with Aurora Addicts!

One of the most spectacular experiences I have ever had. The guides are so friendly and really know their stuff so we knew when and where the lights would be. They also give you a real taste of Norweign culture. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were so inviting and welcoming. They eat sleep and breathe the northern lights so you won't did anyone with better knowledge. Also very easy to get to. I'm a Londoner so in the morning I was on the Piccadilly line then by the evening I was standing up a mountain under the northern lights - all very straight forward to get to. Everyone should experience this and get out there! Can't wait to go back!
