This is a great company to do business with. The booking process is simple, efficient and prompt. The equipment they provide is the best quality; the warm clothing, the vehicle and the lights, all first class. Best of all the staff are well informed, interesting people dedicated to keeping clients safe and providing an experience to remember. They are willing... More

I have to start out by saying that it all depends on the weather. You cannot plan on if it is a clear, cloudy, or active sky when you go. That said, Arctic Explorers will do everything in their power to get you to see the lights!! We happened to be VERY lucky and had an absolutely pristine night. Literally,... More

Thank you so much for the experience yesterday. Our guide, Peter, made the experience excellent. His readiness to take us everywhere (including Finland) will be remembered by my wife and I. Also his willingness to help everyone in the group to take better pictures, make a small fire, etc. made everything a wonderful experience, in spite of the lights being... More

We had a fabulous tour searching for the northern lights. Our guide Peter was simply brilliant and kept us moving, driving some big distances in the hope of seeing the ever elusive northern lights. Everything about this trip was spot on apart from the lights staying hidden. Would highly recommend this company, beautifully organised and professional but with a friendly... More

We signed up for whale watching knowing it was late in the season but thought we'd give it ago to try and see Orcas anyway. Sadly the whales were elusive for every cruise today but the scenery in the fjords was just breathtaking. We were on the boat for over 5 hours and the crew were really helpful and knowledgeable....

Kudos to our guide Bart who had made it possible for us to have a memorable trip chasing the lights in Norway - he was very knowledgeable about the aurora, friendly in dishing out tips for photography (the best cameraman ever :) ) and also awesome in ensuring that we were kept warm and tummies full in the Norwegian cold!...

Thank you for the wonderful trip provided by Sandra even though the whale season was over early. She have provided the best service we could get during our tour where she had in depth knowledge of the fjords and whales. Sandra made the trip fun and enjoyable and had also sent the photos that she took of us the next... More

the night excursion to find the Northern Lights was very well led by Helena. She found places to go that enabled our group to witness the lights without the interference of light from other sources. She actively invited our group to ask questions and provide information, so much so that we became relaxed as a group. We all had needs... More

We booked 1 northern lights tour on our 1st night in Tromso just in case we don't get lucky we have a backup plan to go again. But boy did it pay off. Our guide Max was amazing, picked us up on time from our hotel, suited up with warm suit and boots then off we went to witness the... More
