Extreme Tornado Tours was founded by veteran storm chasers Reed Timmer and Chris Chittick to provide weather enthusiasts the opportunity to observe powerful tornadoes from close range, as well as massive hail and sculpted supercell thunderstorms in Tornado Alley. The ETT guides have been chasing storms in Tornado Alley for over a decade, and their extreme tornado research projects have been featured on Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers the last few seasons. If you have an interest in extreme weather, or just hope to add a little excitement to your life, then a tour with our world renowned storm chasers during tornado season is the ideal vacation for you!
Unparalleled track record
Our team of storm chasers has intercepted an unprecedented number of tornadoes over the last several years, with over 400 tornadoes documented by our veteran storm chasers. Our track record speaks for itself. We offer the absolute best chance of intercepting tornadoes in Tornado Alley during storm season.
Extensive media coverage
You likely have seen our tornado and hurricane footage on Fox News, CNN, NBC, ABC, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, and The Weather Channel. Our storm chasers have conducted live interviews on Good Morning America with Diane Sawyer, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, The Weather Channel’s Evening Edition, World’s Most Amazing Videos, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Today Show with Matt Lauer. Our tornado and hurricane footage is some of the most popular and recognizable on the internet, including the highest-rated and most-viewed tornado video clip on Youtube.com (Ellis Co, OK tornado from May 4, 2007).
Further distinguishing Extreme Tornado Tours from other tour companies, many of our storm chasing guides are degreed meteorologists, with lead forecaster Reed Timmer graduating with his Ph.D. in meteorology in 2011. This provides us the unique ability to incorporate an educational aspect in our storm chasing tours, and of course helps us maximize your chances of seeing a tornado.
Our vehicles are comfortable 15-passenger vans are fully equipped with state-of-the-art tornado tracking technology, including mobile satellite radar, GPS, and mobile Internet, which we make available to our guests with a Wi-Fi access point. We only allow 6 guests per van to maximize your comfort and enjoyment. We also stream live video from our tour vans to our sister site, TornadoVideos.net, where our storm chasing adventures can be viewed in real-time!
