Joining for a Northern Lights tour in Tromso is a must for all who come to the north of Norway. As you know from our post, How hard is it really to find the Northern Lights, it isn’t usually easy. Though it is true, we often see some activity in the city centre, this is approximately only 10% of the time. It’s hard to get a good shot and enjoy them if you have cars driving by, buses, planes and all the light pollution. This is exactly why we always recommended joining a tour!
There is a tour for everyone.
Tromso boasts having 100+ versions of an Aurora Hunt and Northern Lights Tour. That’s a LOT. Over the last few years, Tromso’s tourism industry has exploded. Now, Tromsø offers Northern Lights tours for almost every kind of person. This means there are companies focused on larger groups, catering to travellers on a budget by using large buses without inclusions. This is great! It means everyone can enjoy this amazing destination.
How do you know what tour is right for me?
To find the right Northern Lights tour Tromso, we’d suggest that you start by thinking about your expectations, your needs and your budget. If you need to manage your budget, then perhaps you will need to compromise. Possibly on inclusions such as dinner, equipment, group size or photographs.
Once you decide on your must haves and budget, it’s a good idea to go to a review platform, such as TripAdvisor, google or facebook and read some reviews. During your research, keep your eyes peel for info about your must haves. Remember to read the management responses! This will indicate how the company manages their guests experiences and expectations as well as how experienced they are. Some people prefer to read the 1, 2 and 3 star reviews. This gives indication of issues that could arise and how they have been solved or handled. After finding a handful of tours that you feel might be good, we’d suggest to go directly to their website. Read in more detail about whats included. If in doubt, ask them!
If you still remain unsure, check out each companies social media pages. This can help you get to know their team and get a feel for the vibe. If supporting a company that supports their guides is a priority, then you’ll know this by checking out their pages. Checking to see if the guides are credited for their images is one way to confirm.
If you are looking for an all inclusive, quality tour with an experienced team that seriously cares, isn’t afraid to use puns, makes the BEST hot chocolate that is completely vegan and gluten free, then we might be the team for you. Check out our post: What it takes to make it quality.
