The price was reasonably for a small sized tour. There were even student price offer. The guide, Naoyuki, was professional and proficient in finding the best spot for us to hunt the northern lights. Overall an excellent trip with good memories.

I took my trip on 11st March, our guide Naoyuki was friendly, positive and full of knowledge about Tromso and Northen Lights. We saw the Aurora because he took very good decisions. I strongly recommend Arctic Guide Service
