Breathtaking once in a life time experience On my bucket list! Traveled to Norway from Puerto Rico with my sister and two friends praying we would be blessed with viewing the Northern Lights. Luckily walked into Northern Norway Travel and found Javi and Lautaro who instantly formed a bond with us. They were friendly, courteous and professional providing us with all the info we needed to decide what we wanted to do. The following night we were again extremely fortunate to have Nora as our guide. She was the perfect guide to the most wonderful lights experience. She went out of her way to keep us warm, happy, and informed. We were able to see the lights for an extended period of time and get the most wonderful pictures to evidence our experience. She picked the perfect spot! She helped with our cameras including providing tripods, without which we would have not gotten such great pics!
Absolutely recommend this company for your Northern Lights experience! You’ll not regret it We didn’t!!noraisha4412/21/2019
Fjord Tour in KVALØYA - Northern Norway Travel 12 December Had a wonderful time on this day tour. Our guide, Apostolos, was informative and engaging. Because of the small group, it felt more personable.The driver, Kjetil,was also great, and was very helpful. They both ensured that we were comfortable and safe especially since the ground could be quite slippery due to the snow. Overall, my friends and I enjoyed the tour and we were fortunate to be able to enjoy the stunning views in relatively good weather. The duration of the tour was just right and we appreciated the snack break of hot beverage and cookies, while enjoying the marvellous views of the surrounding fjords.RobynSydney4/07/2019
Explore the Paris of the North with Tromso City Walks Although we has already spent a few days in beautiful northern Norway including Tromso, we booked a city walking tour with Tromso City Walks.
Our guide was Eli and she is a very passionate and caring individual who proudly showed us around beautiful Tromso . One of the highlights of this tour was a visit to the excellent Polar Museum and our guide enhanced our visit with her detailed knowledge of the museum and its exhibits.
Our tour also included a wonderful lunch at Full Steam and i would certainly recommend this tour and thank you again to Eli for this wonderful walking tour.

Amazing Northern Lights The tour is amazing.
The guide and the driver very friendly.
The agency pick you up in your hotel and later they bring you go a museum-restaurant to drink a Tea or Coffe and watch a video about Aurora Bolears.
In a small bus, up to 15 people, we go a camp base close the lake shore. Here We could see the Aurora Boreals.
It is included in the base camp, a nice fire, hot drink, two small sandwichs and a warm suit. The warm suit is comfortable.

Kvaloya I've had a very nice trip to Kvaloya and Sommaroy island! The guide was super friendly and she knew quite a lot to tell and I was very happy to see much more than I would by public transport. I think the money on this trip was very well spend!
Funny and amazing evening / night Although the weather was not totally with us, we had an interesting and good evening witht the guides Apo and Max. Many thanks for it, also to Cassandra and of course Mr. Safety, driver Jarek.
We enjoyed it a lot.EricParas11/03/2019
