Me and my wife, we work as a northern lights guides in Tromso. Each season we see auroras almost everyday. Sometimes it's not that easy as you think, but thanks to our experience and knowlendge of that region and its dynamically changing weather.
Because of lockdown tourists are not allowed to travel to Northern Norway, so we would like to take you online to Tromso, show you magical Northern Lights, share our stories and give you some tips how to catch Aurora Borealis in real. Many people don't have any idea how to do it, so we would like to help you as much as possible. After this slideshow you will be ready for travel to see those spectacular lights, but so far we can only talk about it and show you our best photos.

Rob is an excellent host and a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the Aurora Borealis. My husband planned to propose to me under the Northern Lights during a trip to Canada years ago, but the conditions weren't right, and we didn't get to see them. He had also done a ton of research prior to the trip, so I was a little worried that he might not learn anything new, but he learned a lot. The photos Rob shared during the experience were amazing, and as someone trying to learn more about photography, I appreciated the tips he shared. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

Rob does a great job getting you introduced to Aurora Borealis. He has a lot of good information and beautiful pictures. I look forward to a trip to Northern Norway to see the real thing.

All of the participants enjoyed learning about the Northern Lights and about Rob. He was sensitive to their questions and he connected well with them. They are all planning on heading to Norway immediately after this pandemic is over.
