What people are saying about Troms County

We were initially very skeptical about the experience as we did believe in the aurora apps and KP indices on the day (17/01/23) and thought there was a 0% chance of seeing aurora borealis! But I must say Magnus and Silje did a great job in finding aurora and were very friendly and efficient! Despite the weather conditions we still managed got to see the northern lights in two different locations! They were perfect tour guides who were fun and informative, pictures turned out great too!

I liked that very much! Even the weather cleared up and we were able to see more of the landscape than we initially thought. The huskies were so sweet and cuddly and snowshoeing was really fun! Super nice helpful guides who did everything to make everyone feel comfortable. We recommend.

I would highly recommend booking this tour. We were lucky to see Aurora and Martin is a great guide with a positive attitude which made our experience even more fun. :)

very nice tour guides saw the northern lights as promised! long tour but worth it.

We are so lucky to see the northern lights! It’s a wonderful trip!
