Natural guide, sea kayaking leader, vagabond, environmentalist, PADI scuba diver, whale-maniac, ultimately our queen bee, who is keeping everything together in our small nest.
Kerttu has a special place in her heart for nature and animals. From early childhood, her best friends were always non-humans, with who she shared both joy and tears. As the time goes on, the passion towards natural world grows even greater and now in adulthood, she realises the power, what an individual can withhold. While traveling almost half of our planet(above and below the watery sheet,) she has participated in numerous animal conservation programs and lived through some hilarious moments chasing her dreams. If there would be one single thing, she studied, it would be, we as humans have pushed a nature to extremes and instead of taking a toll on it even further, we should live mutually with nature, without creating further harm. As much as it is possible.
Kerttu (her name easiest to remember is “Care To”) as my better side mainly answering your letters, making sure everything is in order, will occasionally take care of you on our day tours. Once you meet her, you’ll notice straight away, she is loving her job and has a specific skilful touch to it.
I think everyone who knows Markus can agree that he is one of the most seasoned and enthusiastic NorthernLights guide in Tromsø. He really knows how to read the weather and seems to understand the soul of Northern Lights.
He has been guiding Northern Lights tours in Tromsø for 9 years. Markus has a unique know-how and skill to take the best care of people and ensure they see the Lights.
Internally nature and outdoor lover it is impossible not to feel overwhelmed when chasing Northern Lights with him. If you like a tour guide, who does everything with extreme comfort in mind, Markus is not a guide for you. 😀
Markus in always positive thinking and will infect others with his hearty mind and soul. Definitely a problem solver.
He is a professional photographer and is proficient taking photos of Aurora. You can’t go wrong going out with him to see the beautiful Lights.
Jurre Jan – or JJ as he is often called – has a huge fascination for the natural world around him, which is also his driving force for the exploration of nature. Growing up in the flat country of the Netherlands is not easy for a mountain-lover – so he decided to make Northern Norway his home. Here he found endless opportunities to explore the mountains, enjoy all things outdoors and of course chasing the illusive northern Lights.
Jurre Jan is someone who never goes anywhere without his beloved camera and is very passionate about landscape photography. For him, being in the best locations, at the best time of the day is something he lives for – but he just as well loves to share these moments with others to let them enjoy the beauty of the world.
Matteo is cutest of our bunch (after Kerttu.) One could say, he has a heart of a poet and stamina of a mountain goat, when chasing his or helping to chase your dreams. Storyteller, big outdoor enthusiast, climber, hiker, photographer, whiskey lover, great driver (yes, he’s Italian,) the list goes on..
As soon as you meet him at the pick-up point, you will realise, the next hours in your life will be awesome, no matter, how lucky or unlucky you will get with the Aurora sightings.
It took him some years working for bigger outlets to understand, he enjoys smaller groups and more personal relationships with guests. As the years fly by, he has been guiding in Troms area with Northern Lights tours since 2019, making him well seasoned Aurora guide.
Addicted to travel and adventure. PADI Rescue Diver, underwater fanatic and nature lover.
Ever since Stijn was a kid, his parents had a hard time keeping him indoors. “A street rat” is what they would call him. In the good sense of that expression, meaning “independent and feeling at home anywhere in any given city”.
Twenty-something years later and instead of exploring the streets and woods of his hometown, Stijn is now bouncing around the world full-time.
Compelled to share his travel stories, adventurous experiences, and to document people and places, he discovered a love for photography. Drawn to the north by the mysterious northern lights, Tromsø became his arctic aurora base for the winter season.
