Thanks to all my guests 2013/14

Hi guys.

The season of 2013/14 has come to an end and I just want to say a big thank to all of you who choose me as your guide.

It has been a pleasure to meet you all. I’m so impressed by your positive spirits, specially when the conditions has been rough and bad.

I hope you all returned back home with a lot of good memories from Tromsø.

The bookings for next season are increasing and I’m positive sure we will have another good northern lights season with many, many great displays and experiences.

Heroes from the 10th March 2014

The  weather was crappy and I knew we had to drive quite a bit to have a chance to find some clear skies. So we did and it paid of with a rather good display in quite clear skies just when we needed it.

So, it was time to head back to Tromsø and I got some bad news. It had been an avalanche on critical part of the road to Tromsø. Critical because it is not any alternative route at nighttime because of a ferry who stop before midnight. Still with hope  and positive spirit, we headed for the ferry. There was a small chance to get the ferry going to maintain the service and traffic trough the county of Troms. Long story to be short, we had to wait from 02.00 to 06.30 for the first ferry. A long time in the van and I´m so impressed by my guests who kept the good and positive spirit trough the night. The tour became a marathon type of tour. 14 hours from we left the city until I said goodbye to my guests.

Here are some photos from the evening. I was a bit occupied during the best part of the show so I didn´t get it on my camera.

02th March 2014. Good show late night

High clouds and haze made us search for better and more clear skies. Just some faint bands earlier in the evening and we waited for a long time for a display to come. It arrived as I predicted between 1.30 and 02.00. Well worth waiting for as always.

View from a sled pulled by huskies on a 4-5 days tours in Troms, Northern Norway

From Feb I start with 3-5 days tours where we travel in the county of Troms and Finnmark, stay in cabins, do dog sledding,etc. Always in search of the northern lights of course.

This photo is one of many I took when we returned from a cabin deep into the wilderness. 20 dogs, 4 sleds and 4 people in a silent journey in white winter landscape with sun and clouds who made perfect conditions for photography. By presetting the exposure, focus and focal length I managed to get many photos while the dogs was running and I hold the camera with one hand and the sled with the other.

This is one of them.
