Full description

Hunt down the Northern Lights with a local guide well-trained in tracking this natural phenomenon.

Begin your adventure at the local supplier's base camp in central Tromsø where you will meet for a briefing and introduction to the area you will explore, as well as the Northern Lights forecast for the evening. Then board the comfortable tour minibus.

Your guide will work with other guides and weather and communication analysis to ensure you have the best chance of clear views of the northern lights. They will also take professional photos on their cameras and help you set up your camera for the best shot as well.

Your guide will stay with you for the entire evening while making sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. Thermal suits and warm, dry boots are provided for the entire duration of the tour.

The tour was first briefed professionally in a comfortable lobby. The minibus was comfortable. We we lucky to spot a lot of aurora activity from the location we were taken to. Mark was a very enthusiastic and a friendly guide, he offered to take our pictures and explain the right camera settings to capture the lights in the best possible way. Campfire and hot refreshments were also very nice. All in all, a very great experience!

We had an amazing time with our guide for the night BRUNO ! After finding an incredible spot to see the northern light, he told us about all the scientific facts, was very helpful with the camera settings and took several beautiful pictures of us. We had good food, a bonfire ready and great fun. On our way back he stopped the minibus to let us see the most beautiful spectacle we’ve ever seen ! The driver was awesome too ! Bruno’s smile and kindness made the tour even more special ! I highly recommend to go with this company & Bruno if you can.

Amazing experience, we went out on a night that there was basically a blizzard and no hope of seeing the lights.. our guide and driver (I’m sorry guys, I don’t know how to spell your names - I think Yuki and Lukas??) were so knowledgeable and really went out of their way to help us see the lights which magically we did and in 3 different locations!!! The first time was when was still quite light which the guides said they hadn’t seen before so we were extra lucky. Lovely experience to sit by the fire and eat the yummy stew and drink hot chocolate. The blizzard then returned in full so we are extremely grateful to have been able to see the lights .. looking forward to receiving the photos and highly recommend this company.
