What people are saying about Tromsø

Francisco, our guide who had 12 years of experience chasing and photographing the Northern Lights, was amazing! He was always energetic and cheerful, which was great in the cold nights. The tour started with an explanation of how Northern Lights tracking and chasing works, as well as setting realistic expectations. (For your reference, the lights you most likely see will be faint streaks of white light in the sky, which turn into green colors through long exposure photos.) Note that while the tour is private (i.e. you get your own guide and minivan), the tour still starts with other customers who booked any kind of Northern Lights chase tour at the same time. Moreover, the locations you go to will also be shared with them. We were initially worried about this aspect when we had to wait for others, but ended up having a great experience nevertheless! Francisco also took wonderful photos that he edited and shared with us for free the same night.

We had booked the private tour with six people. The pick-up worked to the minute. In the base we got to know the other group. A brief introduction to the Northern Lights followed. Then it goes in our little to go. The first northern lights were not long in coming. We were able to take wonderful photos, both ourselves and with the guide. The tips for the camera settings were very helpful. Since we were a private group, we were able to stay at the place much longer than the others. Unfortunately it got very cold after about 1 1/2 hours, which is why we wanted to go back to the base. If necessary, suits and shoes can be borrowed. I can recommend this to everyone. It's really cold. Great experience that should be on the bouquet list.

We had an amazing time with Francisco of Green Gold of Norway. We appreciated his honestly about notifying us that there was going to be no chance of seeing the northern lights that evening and asked if we wanted to rebook; which we did. We rebooked for 2 nights later and the northern lights danced in the sky for 2 hours. Francisco offered to take pictures of our group and sent us those pictures and more before we woke up the next morning. This was a once in a lifetime experience and we highly recommend Francisco and Green Gold of Norway to make your experience unforgettable.

Despite the initial rain, our guide was very committed and tried hard and showed us the most important points of the city within 2 hours. There was also some interesting background information. Great, it was fun!

Excellent! It was really nice and professional. Nice and clear explanation and great spots for Aurora. We were so lucky and saw the fantastic scene. Recommend everyone to join the tour.
