What is StormChasingUSA.com?

You can easily compare prices, reviews and read experiences from other storm chasing tour guests. We keep you updated with the latest tours and provide you with lots of articles of things you may need to know before you book your storm chasing tour.

Storm chasing (also referred to as tornado chasing tours, tornado safaris or storm safaris) with organized tours is a rapidly growing tourism industry where experienced storm chasers guide adventurers and tourists to amazing severe weather. The hunt for tornadoes, super cells, hail, lightning etc goes all over the midwestern states of USA. The tours are usually between 5-10 days in order to maximize your chances of seeing Mother Nature in her worst mood.

Storm Chasing usually takes place in the spring, around May-June, but you can go chasing in April and July as well. The tour could take you from the Rocky Mountains in the West to the East coast and from the Mexican border in the South up to the Canadian border in the North. The nature of weather makes it impossible to know where you will be any given day.

StormChasingUSA.com will help you towards an experience of a lifetime, that will become truly addicting. StormChasingUSA.com is not a Tour company, we just provide the information about the tour companies and their tours.

Who's running StormChasingUSA?

christoffer My name is Christoffer Björkwall and storm chasing is my greatest passion in life. I am a Swedish storm chaser specialized in storm chasing tours.

Since 2009 I have chased with 8 different tour companies and thus have a knowledge about the storm chasing tour companies like no other in the world.

I have been featured in national Swedish media such as Sveriges Radio P3 "Morgonpasset", Expressen, Kvällsposten, Café Magazine and Nyheter24.se.

I live in Skanör in the southernmost tip of Sweden with my fiancée and two kids. We get very few thunderstorms here but I try to chase for water spouts in the summer.

By StormChasingUSA.com | May 1, 2020

In the advert of the Covid-19 outbreak I was still expecting to chase (albeit with some difficulties) but ever since the US closed the borders for travelers from Europe in March, I have known that the chances for me chasing this year has been slim.
