JOINING AN AMAZING AURORA TOUR BY KARLSØY BUSS
By joining an Amazing Aurora tour by Karlsøy Buss, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
(1) HEALTH CONDITION
Each guest is responsible for their own health. You are adviced to join the tour only if your general health allow it. The tours are not physically straining, but there might be several hours spent outside in the Arctic winternight, so it won´t be too good for your fever. It might do wonders for an existential crisis or a broken heart though
(2) SEEING THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
We cannot guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights. Success of seeing Aurora depends on the solar activity as well as visibility, depending on weather conditions. – 90 % of the time we see the Northern Lights. However: – That unlucky 10 % might just be you. Please be prepared for that. – Even if we do see the lights, they may not always be as strong and magnificent as they are on TV and youtube. The clips and photos are the best of the best, this is more rare to see. So please have low expectations, then you will enjoy the surprises of the night. – There are no refunds in case we do not see anything. – An unsuccessful trip does not earn the right to discount on another tour. – If you are more than 15 minutes late without letting us know we will leave without you and you may not reclaim your money. – If the weather is bad but there is still a chance of seeing something, we might give you the option when we pick you up to rebook to another day. In which case we will find another tour for you another day of convenience.
(3) CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
In case of severely bad weather conditions we maintain the right to cancel the tour up to an hour before departure. In such cases we offer full refund.
– In case Amazing Aurora by Karlsøy Buss cancels the tour the client is entitled to full refund. – In case you book through the Visittromso website, Amazing Aurora by Karlsøy Buss is not responsible for refunds, cancellations and changes.

(4) PREPARING FOR THE TOUR
Amazing Aurora by Karlsøy Buss provides you with a thermal suit, arctic winter boots, tripod, hot drinks, warm meal or snacks. – We have warm Polar Boots available at no extra surcharge. We have them on the tour with us so do not hesitate to ask for them. Make sure you ask for boots before your toes start freezing. – You as a guest must still dress according to the cold climate and are expected to bring your own jacket, scarf, gloves, hat and warm socks. – If you have dietary restrictions please notify us in advance. In case you have not notified us we take no responsibility if you cannot eat the food we have prepared. – Please be on time!
(5) ON THE TOUR
Your guide is in charge of the tour and decides where we go. You may express wishes but ultimately please respect the decisions of the guides. – In case of inappropriate behavior to either the guides or other guests we maintain the right to abort the excursion and bring you back to your hotel with no refund. – Please respect and care for the gear and equipment that you will use on the tour. – The time of return to the city is flexible, please respect this. If we have already seen the lights in all its glory, we see no need to spend all night out, and we might return back to the hotel at 01.00. However if we do not see anything early on, we are ready to drive far and stay out long to increase the chance of seeing the lights. Please respect the direction of the guide.

Amazing Aurora by Karlsøy Buss usually takes pictures on the tour, and in successful tours we offer a selection of our best pictures sent to your e-mail.
