Overall this activity was amazing and I would highly recommend this to all who wants to capture the northern lights under the best condition with the best, most sincere guide in Tromsø!

Ready for a few days up north? We got some fantastic hand made & warm wool mittens in our shop - have a look!


On an average week in the north you will see the lights on more than one occasion. We hunt clear skies, that means that on some days we have to move around for the best chance. Don't worry, we´ll check the forecast for you.

We have a few years of experience with northern lights and nature photography, and we always bring a camera. We know the good spots and we´ll throw in some helpful tips & tricks along the way. 

There are plenty of hiking opportunities in the north - mostly only a stone's throw away from a city. We will adapt the terrain and pace to the group, and we´ll bring snowshoes if necessary. We promise you a good walk and a nice view.

join in on a summer hike


Reidar is such an incredible host, no doubt about it. We were unable to go hiking to Tromdalstinden due to weather conditions. However, Reidar proposed another hiking options and we decided to go to blåisvannet. Wise decision I must say. The landscape is totally amazing. As we walked between spactacular mountains, Reidar explained to me some interesting facts about the area, like the type of vegetation, why the iceberg on top of the lake has shrank over the years, the reason why the deep blue color of the lake, among other things. At the lake, we had a tasty lunch prepared by Reidar. (The bread was baked by him! ). After taking some pictures, we headed back to the starting point. I would definetely recommend Reidar as a guide. He is a really nice person with good experience in outdoor activities in the area. Thank you Reidar for this unforgettable experience ! Blåisvannet is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

Reidar took us to the most incredible point in Kvaløya (if I remember correctly). The place was wonderful, and we had the pleasure to contemplate two hours of northern lights around a bonfire, eating Norwegian stew.


This night felt safe, heartwarming and unforgettable! Last but not least: hunting for northern lights can be tricky and you are at the mercy of the forecasts: when he saw the forecasts, Reidar kindly offered us to move our evening to another date, to be sure to find those lights! Thanks, Reidar, I'll definitely come back
