What you'll do

Join the local expert that knows off bitten tracks and most majestic locations in the area.

Joining me I will do my best to stay away from crowds of mass tourism that is escalating in Tromsø at the moment. Join me and feel most cozy and fun experience.

Join a small cozy group where you can feel like friends having a great experience together. Learn how to take the photos of this amazing phenomenon or just enjoy the nature and stars while I can take all the photos for you.

I have been taking Aurora photos for last 8 years and I really know how to capture them and get the best out of it. I am happy to teach you those tricks as well as talk a nice stories about the northern lights and Arctic.

My wish is that we have a great experience together.

I will pick you up from your accommodation at 18:30, we will head off to our location, we will make a fire, take photos, learn about Auroras and Arctic, capture Auroras, return to your place of residence no later then 1am.

Aurora is a natural phenomenon and I will do my best to bring you to the clear skies however the show of the night is left to almighty Universe :)

Hope to chase with you soon and teach you all I know about Aurora and share some great life stories.

Life enthusiasm, photographer, traveller and free thinker! Most of all a guide in Arctic for last 10 years!
In my free time I love to do yoga, mediation, ice-baths, healthy lifestyle, diets, walk in nature and enjoy my life to the fullest.
As a Northern lights guide I started in 2009 doing dogsledding for two years, then I run my own local Photography Aurora workshops, driving thousands of miles in Arctic conditions, tuning into the weather rather by observing the changes and being there one with nature rather then following the weather forecasts :D
If you join me then for sure I am 110% in.. I am honest, authentic, reliable, resilient.
One of my favourite things in life are sitting by the fire by night, watching the stars and waiting for the Auroras.. Magic is on and your every day life feels like a dream..

Sitting back in my home now after a wonderful trip of Tromso and writing this review I am thinking that going with Govind was the best decision I could have taken for this trip. He accepted my request in an instant and even before coming to pick us, he was worried about what kind of food we will eat. He went out of the way to make sure we were comfortable and are enjoying. Speaking of northern lights, he took us to some wonderful spots and luckily we were able to see some northern lights. He took some amazing photos for us Apart from that we had some wonderful conversations with him while waiting for the lights. So overall jt was an amazing experience with a very nice human being.

Govind is very friendly. He knows where to go and won’t give up easily. We are super lucky to see the dancing northern light. Great experience.

Govind ensured that we were to be see northern lights even though the weather forecast was not encouraging with almost 100% cloud cover. He took us to 2 different places and we were able to see northern lights at both the places. What made our experience special was that we should see the lights dance. He also shared pictures with us which are going to be memories for lifetime. He provided us with all those things which are mentioned in the trip details. Thank you Govind for the experience.

A cloudy, snowy night, and I did not have much hope, but he drove us to this remote spot with clear skies as we watched the lights dance above us. Absolutely beautiful!

This is definitely a Northern Lights chase and Govind will try his best to catch them. Govind tried his hardest to make sure we all had a chance to see them, sometimes trying to will them to become visible until they were. Try out a chase if you're in Tromsø!
