After 2days of rain and snowfall in Tromsö we started our Northern light tour with little hope to catch a glimpse of Aurora. Jurte and Marcus were positive all the way from Tromsö to the Finnish boarder, but snowfall was still there and weather got worse. After boarder crossing showing COVID pass we drove almost another hour and all of a sudden we stopped out in nowhere. What we then saw was just a wonderful spectacular Lightshow of Aurora with dancing green and magenta northern lights just above us. After taking pictures and videos we got hot soup and bread and we all were happy even the way back to Tromsö took 3 hours. Thanks for this beautiful and exciting tour, we will never forget!

This Northern Light trip was beyond expectation, we had a great evening. Markus is a very experienced guide who found us a great spot for seeing several hours the Aurora. He made a cosey campfire, had drinks, snacks and soup, helped us with our camera, made and shared great pictures of the tour. Couldn’t be better!!

This was probably one of the most stress free tours ever experienced. As my father and uncle have retired recently and want to now begin to travel internationally and see as much of the world as they can I have to book the travel and coordinate things for them as they cant afford package tours. I reached out to Greenlander reading many of the great reviews and had Markus reply back who helped me coordinate things in the days leading up to their trip to Tromso. He made what was an arduous process seamless and easy. He went above and beyond to answer every question I had even outside of the realms of this tour and just basic Tromso advice which he didn't have to. He gave his number and made himself reachable for my father and family to call him if they had any trouble finding the meeting point which I cant thank him enough for given the trouble they have navigating new towns. During the email thread and the back and forth questions he remained online and approachable at various hours including one time when he was going to pick his child up but still stopped to respond to my questions. All of this exchange was in the lead up to booking when no money had been exchanged but when it came to finally booking he again went out of his way by when the system wasn't taking my card he held off seats for them while I figured this out and cracked the issue. One I had booked and they were there on the tour he consistently checked up on them to make sure they were ok. He would stop to ask them and other people on the tour if they were ok. This was peak Jan period when the weather was extremely cold! He spoke to them and the participants throughout and would explain things as he drove. The tour was so enjoyable that the following day we booked the Fjord tour with Greenlander again which was equally enthralling. This is a must do for anybody and the personal intimate drive you get with this tour is second to none. The individuals that my family interacted with were all kind, polite and helpful. I would recommend them thoroughly based on my parents experience!
