I just returned from my first visit to Norway and it was spectacular from start to finish. The highlight of the trip, though, was the Aurora Hunt with Wandering Owl. Even before the tour, while still communicating with them online, they were very helpful and professional. I had many questions and had to make a couple changes before the date,... More

I'm a pilot from Los Angeles and my friends and I decided to visit Norway to see the lights. We chose Wandering Owl, who turned out to be the best tour for us in Tromsø to catch the Northern Lights. Our guide Mixo was extremely knowledgeable about finding the right spot to view the lights, as sometimes they are blocked... More

We were picked up on time at the downtown Tourist Centre meeting point and drove 20-30 minutes to hills just outside of Tromso. Unfortunately, it was raining rather than snowing but the cool water droplets were refreshing on our snowshoe adventure. First we were kitted out with headlamps and then snowshoes. Outerwear and overshoes are provided if requested in advance.... More

Just eight of us in a van. The guide brought us to Sommaroy Island and several fjords. Sandwich lunch and hot chocolate were provided in a picnic style. There were several stops for photo taking. Beautiful fjord that must visit from Tromso

We had two trips with Wandering Owl, and both were fantastic. They work in small groups and really make the experience one to remember. The guides are knowledgeable, patient and truly care about the environment and what they do. We couldn't speak highly enough of them. On top of all of that, their hot chocolate is just fantastic, perfect for... More

The experience was stunning, northen lights are just amazing but try to go with tours with better personal. We went on the 2nd of april with a finland guy that after the tour stopped himself for a coffe at 2.20pm istead of bringing us home. I find it very rude. that's the actual picture!

Dear Giulio, after speaking on the phone with you, I was happy to know that you were actually overall very satisfied of both your tours with us, except for that incident on the second night. Our guides are driving very long distances to get you to see the lights and to bring you away from the town and in the... More

Dear Iris, firt of all, we understand your disappointment because of the outcome of this accident. We know that not being able to join any northern light tour was very frustrating for you and we understand this very well. This said, this accident was not due to a rigid management style, but rather to a series of unlucky happenings and... More

Both trips were fantastic, well organised, great guides, excellent fun and fantastic experiences, they made our trip to Northern Norway the trip of a lifetime we hoped it would be.

Our family did the tour just few days ago, April 2017. It was a wonderful experience. They offer small group excursions which was very important for us since we had our two young children with us, ages 9 and 6. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but also extremely patient and willing to help with every aspect of the trip,... More
