Number One on my list: the Northern Lights! In our very first night in Tromso we went with Chasing Lights to Chase the Lights the guys (Mick and David) explained very well what we were in for. We went out, we froze a little bit - mind you, the bus has the engine turned and you can easily go inside and get warm-, we saw the amazing amazing lights, we had a lot of hot chocolate and then we saw some more lights.

Went on a trip with chasing lights to see the northern lights. The whole trip was fantastic from start to finish. Well organised.
The staff member assigned was Ewelina and she was brilliant at her job. She put in such effort to get photos for everyone and even stopped the bus on the way back at 130am as she saw a great photo opportunity.
I would really recommend chasing lights as if there is northern lights visible anywhere the night you go they will find them. Distance no object.
They also send a copy of the photos they take the next morning.

My husband I have always had seeing the northern lights on our bucket list and this company did not disappoint. We booked the minibus tour for 2 nights just in case. The company is extremely responsive and responded to all emails within an hour. Their email responses are extremely professional and removed all ambiguity. The company contacted us the morning of the trip and let us know the when to be outside our hotel for pick up. Our guide (marek) was knowledgeable and welcoming. He made sure to let us know there was no guarantee of seeing the lights,but went out of his way to find the best location. We had a delicious stew under the stars and the lights did not disappoint. We felt relaxed and looked after the entire trip. The weather was bad on the second night and the company called us to offer a full refund ,as seeing the lights was not likely. In my opinion, this company is worth every penny. We would absolutely use them again.

Chasing Lights has the recipe for running a perfect business! Starting with their rapid, informative and friendly responses to emails at all hours of the day and night (Trisha and Priscilla- do you ever sleep?) Add to that their incredible staff of tour guides and drivers. We took one fjord tour with Noora. She was absolutely delightful, friendly and very educational. The tour was a magnificent photo op at every turn. We also took 3 chases (one each) with Hermann, Jonas and Marek. They were all exceptionally enthusiastic, fun, informative and helpful! We had to travel far on our chases to try to find clear skies but that is part of the chase if the weather is not cooperating closer to Tromso. We had a bonfire one night under a beautiful starry sky, saw the world's largest troll carved into a mountain on another, and stayed warm in the overalls provided! The lights were weak but we still had so much fun on the chases and getting to meet all our tour-mates. Hot chocolate,cookies and a warm meal served in a thermos were a perfect complement to this adventure. You are not guaranteed to see the lights, but you will have loads of fun. Dress in warm layers as you will want to peel some off on the bus ride. Bring your patience as well as you may have to wait for Mother Nature to appear. The drivers we had on every tour drove safely through some snow and rain at times, and were also very friendly and helpful!Thank you Chasing Lights-don't change a thing- you are perfection! We hope to see you again one day!

Amazing experience, amazing people and guides.
We were lucky since chasing lights didn't required too much driving. We had a perfect sky conditions near Tromso in a beautiful landscape where were present both mountains and water.
Thanks to the expertise of Ewelina we were able to enjoy in a great way the night watching the sky and looking for the Green lady that showed us all her beauty.
At the same time she gave us hints for our cameras and also some warm suits when the night it was going colder.
I used to go with minibus chase tour, and I totally recommend it because you can share this kind of experience with few people.
