Pukka travels has been nothing short of amazing. From the moment we got in touch, Jessica has gone above and beyond in ensuring all our requests would be accommodated. Our driver, Patrick displayed remarkable hospitality in serving us great drinks and food along the way and while we were at the destination. Our host and guide, Jenka was phenomenal, her insight behind the Northen lights and her passions roared through out the evening. Not to mention, she captured the memories that will last forever, our proposal and engagement!

After the magic happened, we gathered around a camp fire to enjoy food as well as roasting some marshmallows under the lit up sky, the calm waters and individuals from around the world! Truly an experience the Misses and I will never forget.

Pukka travels will definitely be highly recommended and we look forward to utilising their services again in the near future.

Thank you to Jessica and the team for turning dreams into a reality.

Dear Lishal and Sureka, we are honoured that you chose us to create such a special memory for the both of you. I'm so happy that the night went according to plan and that Jenka and Patryk chose a good spot for you to find the northern lights. Thank you for your kind words in this review. Looking forward to hosting you again in the future, warmest regards and congratulations from all of us here at Team Pukka.

I booked this trip as part of a surprise birthday holiday for my husband's 50th and selected Pukka as they had good reviews on their experience and organisation for activities.

Please note the Northern Lights cannot be guaranteed regardless of who you book your activity with.

The organisation by Pukka for the mini bus chase was great from a clear and simple booking process to the reminders sent out prior to joining the evening activity. You are also offered thermal suits and boots to wear to ensure you don't feel the minus 12 degree wind chill!

Jakub our guide for chase was great, he really persevered in finding 'activity' in the skies above throughout the evening.

Our lady driver was lovely and we felt safe and secure with her in charge of the minibus on very icy and snowy roads.

The evening entailed a campfire near a beach to wait and watch for any aurora activity. A hearty and tasty soup (gluten free and vegetarians catered for) was served, plus hot chocolate and marshmallows to toast on the campfire adding to the whole experience.

After more than 4 hours of patience, and after we had all resigned ourselves to not seeing the lights, Jakub found 'activity' in the sky above and we all scrambled out of the mini bus to stare in amazement at the northern lights dancing above - a truly magical experience. Jakub took photos for those who wanted it - definitely get your guide to take a photo with their camera - far easier than messing about and failing to get the right exposure settings on your own device!

I would definitely use Pukka again for activities in the Tromso region. They ensured it was a fantastic and safe experience.

This trip was very fun and well organized. The guides, named Mark and Lucas, seemed to know exactly where to go to increase the chances of seeing active Northern Lights.

We were a group of around 10-12 people in total. During the drive to a spot, there was an interactive informative session in which the guides explained and challenged to ask questions. They seemed to have a genuine passion for these tours. The drive was about 40 minutes for us and quite comfortable with blankets if you were cold (although it wasn't).

As soon as we arrived, the Northern Lights were already visible. We spent about three hours in the same spot around a campfire with hot chocolate, coffee, reindeer soup and marshmallows watching a spectacular and active Northern Lights show above a beautiful Fjord. The guides also had high quality camera's with them to take pictures of everyone which they sent over by email a few days later. They also advised on how to adjust your mobile phone settings to get the best pictures yourselves.

Finally, temperatures were really quite low when we were visiting but the blue suits from Pukkatravels kept us warm and comfortable throughout the entire trip.

Big recommend!

The excitement of the chase kept us warm as well as a lot of layers. Despite not having luck with seeing the Northern Lights, the staff kept us busy with light painting and Sami chanting around a campfire.
Two suggestions 1) know your camera before you go
2) check to see that there are no more than 11 people booked with you. On the long ride to/from the adventure, four people were squashed in the back seat. I could not even face forward because of how we were packed in. I believe it was advertised as a tour for 8. there were 15!!! I ended up having a panic attack, really.

Hello and thank you for reaching out to us! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and loved hearing about the light-painting & Sami chanting around the campfire. As we have new minibuses, we have only recently been made aware of the back seats and can make assurances that we are currently investigating alternatives. We are so sorry to hear about your discomfort and would encourage you to contact us via support@pukkatravels.com. Warmest Regards, Pukka Travels

Although the weather conditions were pretty challenging, the team really did their best to find clear sky and some very slight auroras. All very professional. Bruno is amazing, such a friendly person! Had a great time, thank you so much!

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!

My experience with Pukka Travels was amazing. They provided us all we needed to be out at Night in Lapland (thermic dressing and shoes), they were able to find a spot of clear sky in a night of very bad weather conditions so that we were finally able to see Aurora despite very low chances and expectations. I appreciated genuinity, good vibes and young approach of the team. I would definitely suggest to make travel experiences with them

I really enjoyed this activity. We were pretty lucky and got to see lots of lights very early in the evening already. The guide and driver decided to make a stop much earlier than planned since there were just so many lights in the sky. The guide and driver felt very experienced in what they do. We made many stops before going to a spot to make a bonfire, which was very cozy. The food was delicious and the atmosphere felt very nice. I would absolutely recommend this activity with Pukka Travels :)

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.

Our guide, Camilla and driver, Lucas were fabulous! We were on a Viking Cruise and this was an excursion option. The excursion was operated by Pukka. I would recommend them without hesitation! Camilla did her research as to clouds and winds plotting out where in Tromso area was best to view the Aurora Borialis. With constant help from Lucas we saw the Aurora when expectations were only at 10%. This company has trained their guides and drivers well. They had coffee tea and hot chocolate on hand. If you are sailing into Tromso I suggest you book direct with them and not via a cruise line. It was the highlight of our trip! USE PUKKA TRAVELS!
