We were made to feel welcome as soon as our tour started, we were taken back in time by one of the tour guides who told us old stories of Norway. We had a freak incident on the way, where the window on the roof was ripped off. However, even in the face of adversity they kept our spirits up and never once complained or even seemed phased. Sebastian managed to sort the roof out with the materials in the van (we were all impressed!) to enable us to carry on chasing the northern lights, which we found a little while after. There were hot dogs and hot chocolate with marshmallows which were prepared around a campfire, while we listened to more stories from the past. We were lucky that we got to see the lights and had some pictures taken. This was one of the best tours I have ever been on and this was down to the friendly tour guides, their kind nature and their knowledge. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
Our guide (Nikko?) was incredible! Not only did we see the northern lights but we had so much fun driving around and talking with each other around the fire! Our driver and tour guide made the whole experience fun. We even got homemade soup and our tour guide’s favorite hot drink. Would highly recommend this tour!
We started the tour with high hopes: we saw the lights around 11pm through the clouds, but unfortunately the clouds never cleared enough to see them well throughout the night. Our guide and drive drove around for hours trying so hard for us! We stopped and made a fire and roasted hot dogs and told local legends, so that was fun! All in all, this was fun, and since they can’t control the weather, I would give them a 100%!
The Tour departed on time. The Guide was very knowledgable and was very attentive. Our Tour had a few issues that added to the experience! Firstly we got stuck in deep snow and it took an hour to dig the mini bus out. Secondly the Driver put his foot down to make up time and got booked by the Police for speeding ! All rather surreal but added to the overall experience. The Guide could not do enough for the Group, working endlessly to make sure everyone was involved. Finally at 1.00am he light a fire on the beach of the Fjord, so we could cook sausages when the temperature was minus 20!
We not only saw the lights, but our Guide gave a running commentary explaining the science behind them. We eventually were dropped off at our hotel at about 2.30 am, having had a great evening. We returned back to the UK and within a few days we were emailed very good images of the lights taken during our particular Tour. We would thoroughly recommend this tour, but take your own shovel!
An amazing night. Picked up on time and taken by guide and driver on our search. We were not disappointed. 4 hours of incredible viewing of the northern lights along with a campfire, hot chocolate and hotdogs. Our cameras were not good enough but the guide sent us amazing photos the following day.
