    Vagn was super helpful he took me to some great location and gave me some very useful trips. I was the only one who booked the tour on the day and he didn’t cancel on me and still gave me a ‘private tour’ around starry Nuuk. Highly recommend this tour.

    Mange tak, Vielen Dank & thank you so much to Guide to Greenland for a unique experience. Although I was the only client and only had brought my iPhone with a Slow Shutter App, they took me on an incredible northern lights tour to the darkest spots of Nuuk, where we had the best view and took terrific pictures. Unfortunately, my iPhone 8 was not good enough for taking really good pictures of the Northern Lights, but the guide had brought an iPhone 10 and took some incredible pictures, which the guide shared afterward with me. We of course were very lucky that the Northern Lights showed up so nicely in time that night, however, especially thanks to my professional tour guide it became such a wonderful, unforgettable experience. I highly recommend this tour – with iPhone or proper photo equipment, and maybe even without. Ask Guide to Greenland, they help you in their warm car on the way to the next dark spot.

    Diese Tour war ein einmaliges Erlebnis, nicht zuletzt Dank meines grossartigen tour guide. Obwohl ich die einzige Teilnehmerin war und lediglich ein iPhone mit Slow Shutter App und ein Tischstativ dabei hatte, hat die Guide mich auf eine fantastische Northern Lights tour an die dunkelsten Orte rund um Nuuk mitgenommen, von wo aus wir die besten Aussicht hatten und wo wir großartige Photos machen konnten. Leider war die Kamera meines iPhone 8 nicht ausreichend genug für richtig gute Photos, aber die Guide hatte sein iPhone 10 dabei, mit dem er sehr gute Bilder machen konnten, die er danach mit mir geteilt hat. Wir hatten natürlich großes Glück, dass die Northern Lights in dieser Nacht so stark und gut sichtbar waren, aber nicht zu letzt dank meines professionellen tour guide wurde diese Tour zu der wunderbaren, unvergesslichen Erfahrung, die sie war. Ich kann die Tour uneingeschränkt empfehlen – mit iPhone oder ordentlicher Photoausrüstung, und vielleicht sogar ohne alles. Fragt einfach mal bei Guide to Greenland nach, in ihrem warmen Auto auf dem Weg zum nächsten dunklen Ort herausfand.
