What you'll do

We would like make a slideshow with Q&A. We will show you our best photos of magical Northern Lights, give you some proper tips how to catch Aurora Borealis, because after so many years guiding tours in Tromso, we totally understand that most of the people don't have any idea. Northern Lights are on everyone's bucket list, so at least we would love to make your dream come true online and then, when everything will be back to normal you will be more than ready to travel and explore Northern Lights. So far we would like to give you a lesson what are Northern Lights, how/when/where to catch them. For a moment we can turn your house into aurora observatory and teach you so tips. You can also prepar your list of questions, we will be more than happy to answear and help you as much as possible with your future journey to Northern Norway.

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.

Purchased this as a gift for my Dad. Luckily for him, he (and my Mum) were the only people on the tour. They found it very interesting and informative and would love to go and visit now! They said that Kat, the presenter ( Rob’s wife), was very easy to listen to and overall they really enjoyed the experience!

Rob was great. His knowledge and experience with a virtual tour was impeccable. Some astonishing and picturesque photos of the northern lights in Norway and shared some real life stories. Rob was very accommodating setting a time that was well suited for my girlfriend and me. 5star experience overall. I recommend.

This was most interesting and informative and gave us a good idea of when we might plan our next trip based on the best sun activity cycle. Kat had a great enthusiastic style and made us want to come back to Tromso again soon. We were there last year - had a fabulous snowy holiday in Sommaroy but did not see the lights ! We recommend this online experience.

Fantastic presentation, great photos and very informative. Rob knows his stuff and packs lots of great info into a fast hour. I really enjoyed hearing about his experiences and the mythology of the northern lights which makes his presentation great for even non-photographers. He's very personable and answered the questions I had.

We had a wonderful time getting to know more about how to chase the Northern Lights and dream about travel post-COVID. Rob was knowledgeable and generous with his expertise. I would recommend this experience highly.
