Excellent driver & tour guide; amazing experience
Mar 2020
We booked this tour thru Viking Cruises & the experience could not have been more wonderful. Our guides asked us whether we wanted / needed tripods & then stopped at their office to get them for those who asked. We travelled quite a distance from port & parked at a nearly deserted spot. Perfect spot. Perfect night for viewing northern lights. Perfect hosts. Our driver built a snow bench & then covered it with an insulated mat; built a small fire and offered tea, coffee & hot chocolate. Within a few days after our excursion, Pukka sent a link with the terrific photographs they took. Highly recommend this company.

Exciting 'northern light chase'
Feb 2020
Despite a bad forecast with lots of clouds, the tour guide (Anthony) used real-time information to know where the chances to see the northern lights are the best. So as we drove towards our destination, he changed plans according to knew info. This helpt a lot to find gaps in the clouds and have some clear skies. The moment when the lights start to appear is fantastic! Pukka travel takes time to explain everything about the lights, to take pictures with all of the group and to just enjoy the spectacle. The campfire was great and the soup / marshmellows made it perfect. Great night!

We had bad weather conditions, but our guide kept searching for a good spot. We saw the Northern Light en drank with the light above us hot chocolate and a local made soup. Dessert were marshmallows over a campfire. Good company, good service and very friendly.

We saw the lights!!!
Feb 2020
It was a very cloudy evening and did not expect to see anything, but on the way back they were very visible. The tour guides were great and it was a nice cold evening, out of the city! So cool to have a fire in the snow. Very enjoyable!

Pukka Travels Northern Lights chase in mini bus
Jan 2020
Pukka travels made our whole experience from our 1st enquiry until the end of our trip, the easiest tour we’ve had. At Pukka’s base office we were greeted with Hot drinks, a warm welcome by our guide Jakub & were ushered into a room to put on snuggly warm suits, gloves & boots. Jakub gave a brief explanation then a 2 hour mini bus drive, we arrived at our viewing point & Jakub quickly set up reindeer skins for us to sit on & the campfire to keep us toasty warm. He helped set up cameras/tripods & explained shutter speeds etc. & said the Lights will be faint. We had a decent show & Jakub took photos of all of us with the Lights & some fun ones too. He explained the phenomenon & we had a great night around the campfire eating stew, hot drinks & toasted marshmallows. At midnight we set off back to base. Along the way, the bus came to a quick stop, Jakub jumped out & hurriedly got us Out to see another display. This impressed us the most as they weren’t the brightest & he could have kept going & we wouldn’t have been the wiser. He took more photos of us. Once back to base, we all got out of our suits, each person thanked Jakub & he shook all our hands, saying he appreciated each of us that night. We walked to our ship feeling happy to have had an adventure that was made all the better by the people we met & the kindness of Jakub & his driver. 3 days later we received an email with the photos he took. We are grateful for the experience & recommend Pukka Travels for this experience

A truly fantastic experience with lovely people
Feb 2020
We booked a place on the minibus northern lights chase with Pukka Travel at the last minute and we will be pleased we did so for the rest of our lives! From start to finish the experience was fantastic. The minibus accommodated a maximum of 15 so this was a pretty personal experience. Our guide Jakub was amazing from the moment we met him. He gave an explanation about the lights and how the weather could affect our chances of seeing them. A decision had been taken to drive us across the border into Finland, some 3 - 3.5 hours drive from Tromso - and this is what we did. The driver was fantastic and we felt completely safe despite the icy conditions. The warm suits provided were a real life saver in minus 22 degree conditions. Jakub managed our expectations well but we were extremely lucky to see a fabulous display from the aurora borealis! And the photographs Jakub took and emailed to us are proof of this. I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent operation. Thank you Jakub and driver.

Fantastic people
While the cloudy night prevented us from seeing the lights we still enjoyed ourselves. Lucas and Mark were took good care of us and never gave up searching the skies and also kept us entertained with food, stories and even camera tricks. Of special note is how wonderful they were with our kid. He was young but Lucas and he were fast friends making snow angels and a highlight for my son was digging in the snow wearing a headlamp. We love the people at Pukka.

Great time (despite being 'Northern Lightless....')
Feb 2020
While we did not see the Northern Lights it was a nice night. Went from downtown Tromso (around 6pm) and drove a couple of hours (be prepared for sitting in car a bit) 'on the hunt'. We settled in a pretty spot by the water and had a campfire with snacks and dinner (stew) and it was nice to chat with people from around the world and be out in nature.

Northern lights chase, success!
Feb 2020
Despite the uncooperative weather, our guide Audrey was able to find the Northern Lights for us. She was constantly checking her resources to give us the best opportunity to see them and we were finally awarded with some lights. I highly recommend Pukka tours, they were communicative and professional.
