Memorable parts? Getting to see the Northern Lights - we were very lucky to have had a clear night to see them. They were amazing. Tips? The holiday was seamless. Great advice, good app and the holiday ran like clockwork. Local benefits? Probably not so much for this trip. We ate locally in Tromso and hopefully the accommodation in Metfjord will invest some of the money from our trip into preserving their wonderful environment. Overall rating? We've just returned...

Over an hour of swirling, dancing pink and green lights was breath taking. Truly unforgettable. (more)Linda Reed
Each of the five days was memorable in its own way. The evening walk from Mefjord Brygge up to the hut for the Northern Lights safari was special as the lights were particularly impressive that evening. Equally driving huskies through the beautiful winterwonderland was also hard to beat. We also loved the boat trip around the fjord, although there are no whales, as the herrings have moved elsewhere.
