Introduction
& Inspiration

The ‘Great Aurora Hunt’

“Awe-inspiring, magical, breath taking, spellbinding, mesmerising”, these are a few of the words used by our clients to describe the Aurora Borealis or – as they are more commonly called – the Northern Lights. In fact, no amount of words or, indeed, images could ever do real justice to the Aurora. It is, to my mind, one of Mother Nature’s most spectacular natural phenomena – if not the most spectacular – and it’s hardly surprising that it’s on so many people’s wish-list.

The very first time I witnessed them for myself I was literally speechless. I just lay, silent in the snow, captivated by this truly amazing spectacle unfolding before my eyes. The only noises that I could hear were the faint sound of a reindeer bell tinkling in the distance and the sound of my own breathing. It was a wonderful experience and one that will live with me for a lifetime. Since then I have been fortunate enough to have seen the ‘Spirits in the Sky’ many times and I think that it’s fair to say that I’ve become somewhat addicted to them. The beautiful thing is that they are always different. Sometimes they come in spirals, at other times as ribbons or bands, always varying in speed, colour and intensity. In order to fully appreciate the magnificence of this natural light display it simply must be experienced first- hand and, believe me, it’s something that’s well worth braving the elements for.

On behalf of the team, we very much look forward to welcoming you to Northern Norway.

Andy Keen,

Professional photographer, veteran Aurora chaser and Director of Cameras Go Wild.

This 5 day Northern Lights & Arctic Nature adventure is led by professional photographers and veteran Aurora chasers, Andy Keen and Alex Keen; both of whom are highly experienced in this part of the world.

Experience Can Make All The Difference Between Success And Failure

Hence the Team's 95% Success Rate Over a 10 Year Period

Andy Keen and his team of fellow Northern Lights chasers have over 10 years’ experience of intercepting the Aurora for their clients: in multiple locations across Scandinavia and often in rapidly-changing weather conditions. Their proven track record, in-depth knowledge and photographic expertise ensure you stand the best possible chance of seeing and capturing the Aurora in-camera.

Although nobody can offer a 100% cast iron guarantee that the Aurora will be visible in the night sky (which can be due to multiple factors including; local weather conditions and low levels of solar activity on any particular given night, for example,) what we are able to say in complete confidence is that ever since this particular team started leading tours way back in 2010, 95% of their guests have seen the Aurora during their stay, and very often not just once but rather on multiple occasions. In essence, Andy and his team live and breathe the Aurora and you can rest assured that they shall not only wish to share that passion with you, but that they will also be doing their level best to fulfil your dream – possibly a lifelong dream – of seeing it.

Andy Keen and his team of Aurora Hunters are a group who are consistently able to find the elusive Aurora when others cannot.   Their dedication and willingness to go the extra “Mile  / Kilometre” make them the Team to be with when searching for Auroras. They will leave no stone unturned in trying to get clients to be in a prime position for viewing.   I have been with Andy four times in the last four years, and am delighted to say they have a 100% record and on every trip we have had at least one night. Last week was typical of my experience with the great people from Cameras Go Wild, constantly willing to get us to see the Aurora, and did so on 3 out of 4 nights, and with fantastic results. Thanks Andy and Team, you did a fantastic job.  A very satisfied customer who will be back again (and again).

Andy Keen is an affable chap who I met whilst directing a film about the Aurora Borealis for BBC’s Learning programme ‘Little Stargazing’. We chose Andy to be our ‘on-screen’ guide due to his experience and local knowledge of the Northern Lights. He couldn’t have been more helpful to us in our endeavours, setting up authentic indigenous outdoor experiences for the children and their fathers in addition to hunting out the lights. It was a real adventure and one of the best filming experiences I’ve had – which went on to be nominated for a BAFTA. Andy is a warm, approachable and friendly person who has a genuine enthusiasm for life and the natural world. He loves what he does, and it shows. Get ready for some jaw dropping moments that you won’t forget in a hurry.
