    This is a small-group, outdoor tour tailored especially to explore the Arctic nature while you are hunting for the Northern Lights. The main purpose is to give you the best chance of seeing the Aurora Borealis by traveling away from city light pollution. Position yourselves under cloud free skies to experience the wild Arctic nature. You will be picked up by your local guides in the city center and start the tour by heading towards beautiful mountains, fjords, and valleys. There will be many stops on the way to take photos of the unique and search for the lights. Where your tour goes depends on the weather conditions, sometimes this is as far as to the Finnish and Swedish border to find the right conditions for the lights. Travel in small groups to create a special, cozy atmosphere. This also makes the tour more flexible. You will be provided with insulated overalls, snacks, and hot drinks. Your guide will take photos on the tour and share them with you after the trip.

The night we had booked to go on this tour, there was a snow storm. Fair enough to the company, they offered either to continue on the trip that night, a refund or to go out on another evening. We choose to go out a couple of days later. The guide was enthusiastic and tried to

Dear Trudy, We are sad to read your review. Thank you to recognize that we offered the choice to postpone or to refund the tour when the weather was bad. All our apologizes for the bad cooking regarding hotdogs. You will understand that if we are offering the possibility to eat a vegetarian meal, this is to respect your dietary requirements. We are truly sorry if the "cooker" didn't follow the rule to separate them. For the other subjects, we would like to clarify -our point of view. First of all, two spots during one night can be a part a Chase and you did it. We are not "acting" the chase, we are doing it. This is not because you didn't feel the guide looking for, that he was not doing it. The skills of our Guide since now several months, and for some of them, several years is not a fantasy. Every night they are doing all the bests to find the Green Lady. The spots chosen were the best regarding the weather and the Northern Lights activity. But after, if the chance was not with you for that night, this is not a lack of services. Otherwise, each team provide not only the Chasing service, but share also our Norwegian's culture and lifestyle. For us, it seems to be better like you said to be "enthusiastic and tried to keep spirits up". If we know now the activity is over, we can't push any button, this is Nature unfortunately. We decide to go back, when it is time to. To be in the city center at 2:00 AM. We hope you will have more chance one day to see the Northern Lights on an easier way. The Polar Adventures' Team

We had booked this tour on the 5th March 2020. Unfortunately it was overcast and snowing, so the tour guide offered us the option to cancel the tour. As we were leaving on the boat the next day, we were unable to do the tour the next night. So the tour guide said no problem,

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing our loyalty and honesty. But why offering us only 4 stars? Our next customers can imagine we are not offering a good job. We understand how much your disappointment was big to have to cancel your tour because of the weather. But unfortunately, the forecast's weather is not our responsibility... Cross finger the weather will be better if you would like to come back here one day! Best regards, The Polar Adventures' Team

I now know that you need dark clear nights to see the lights plus solar action. The tour can control the clearness of the night by driving to an area where the night is clear and we as tourists can check if the moon is new or not. The unknown is the level of solar activity.

Dear Guest, Thank you for this perfect explanation of what is a Northern Lights Chase with Polar Adventures: a permanent checking of the weather in all the Tromsø's region, a good teaching to learn how to chase and how to take pictures of them, and obviously share our passion for the experience of chasing with our nice guests! Finally, if you plan to come back to Tromsø one day, our best tip is to avoid the full moon! Cross finger the Northern Light activity will be better! Best regards, The Polar Adventures' Team
