    Response from Sara L, General Manager at Aurora Chase with professional photographers
    Responded 2 weeks ago
    Dear 766annea, we are very sorry to hear your experience has not been up to your expectations, and we thank you for taking the time of giving us your feedback. However, from what you write we infer that your frustration comes from the whole idea of being on an Aurora Chase rather than being a feedback on our tour specifically. Going on an Aurora Chase is not for everyone, that is why in Tromsø there are also Aurora camp visits in the wider offer. We are in the Arctic, the weather is unpredictable and on some particular nights it can be freezing cold and windy. In such cases the bus is used as a shelter on wheels, with the comfort of toilets facilities and extra leg space. If we find a location that presents good visibility conditions we might decide to stay there and wait for the Aurora to show up instead of moving elsewhere where we might indeed find a worse situation. The Aurora degree of visibility and behaviour is also something unpredictable, it can be out there all night, dancing sharply in shades of colour, be still and glowing green or not showing up at all, or it can play hide and seek, getting stronger at times to then disappear again. It is the duty of our guides to come and advise the guests that are resting on the bus to get out if they want to see the lights, however it might be that in the time one uses to layer up the lights have faded away and we must wait some more. At that point you can use your time to socialize with other guests or your guide, get more information on the place you have chosen to visit or the phenomenon you would like to see and get some visual reminders on how nature is indeed powerful, beautiful and out of our control. We always suggest to spend as much time outdoor as possible and there are options in town for renting special equipment when hardcore low temperatures hit. Guests must be prepared for the arctic winter when they chose Tromsø as a destination. To conclude, as we usually inform people, there is no guarantees in nature, and an Aurora chase is designed to maximize the chances of witnessing such phenomenon, we do not promise fireworks nor else, just that we will do our very best to bring you in a spot that presents the best possible conditions to see the Aurora if that is there on the date you decided to join us. If that happens on a beach in full darkness on a cold night it actually means we have done our job very well. Cordially,

    The weather was not good in Tromso for Northern Lights. The tour took us to almost Finland until we saw lights. The guide was a professional photograph that took photos. This was a plus since all I had was an iphone.
