Full description

Journey outside of Tromsø, away from the city's light pollution, in search of the Northern Lights together with an experienced guide. Marvel at the immense majesty of the Arctic as you share stories with your companions by a crackling bonfire.

Depart from the meeting point in the center of Tromsø and embark on a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Arctic wilderness. Your experienced guide will then lead you in the pursuit of the spellbinding natural phenomenon that is the Aurora Borealis.

As you search the skies in multiple locations, take in the rugged beauty of your surroundings. Listen to local myths and stories about the lights, as well as a scientific explanation about why they exist.

After finding the best spot to watch the lights, crunch through fresh snow surrounded by towering mountains and deep fjords. Take the time to really admire this incredible natural display of light, where colors dance in the air in beautiful, mesmerizing patterns.

Keep your energy up with hot drinks and snacks, cooked over the campfire. Then be taken back to memories of summer camp as you roast marshmallows on a smoky bonfire.

Take lots of great photos throughout the night with the tripod provided. Your guide will offer advice to set up your camera properly, and also take photos of your group with the Northern Lights in the background. After a memorable evening, you will be dropped off at your accommodation in Tromsø".

    Know before you go

    • Please note that the Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon and viewing them can never be guaranteed
    • Photos often depict the Northern Lights' colors as stronger than how they are seen with the naked eye
    • To enjoy the Northern Lights, you will spend long periods of time standing outside in very cold winter conditions. As such, it is recommended that you wear very warm layers, preferably wool and winter boots
    • If you do not spot the Northern Lights on your trip, you can book the tour again with the local partner with a 30% discount
    • It is recommended that you take a Northern Lights Tour at the start of your time in Tromsø so that if you don't have a chance to see the Northern Lights on your first excursion, you will still have the chance to purchase a tour on another night to try again
    • Depending on weather conditions and Northern Lights sightings, food may not be served until 11 PM. It is recommended to have dinner before the tour
    • Tripod is for use with cameras, not iPhones

    Overall we had a good experience. Our only frustration was that we did not have good contact information to get in touch with the company. Their listed number did not work (according to our hotel, this is a known problem). We tried to call the day before to see if we could change days (or cancel) based on current conditions. On the plus side, when we were offered the opportunity to cancel and get a full refund when we got to the bus knowing that we might on see anything that evening. In the end it all worked out as we did get to see some northern lights.

    It has been a very pleasant tour and we should highlight the attitude and commitment of the guide and the driver who did everything possible for us to see the Aurora Borealis, and that is how we saw the Aurora Borealis. The guide took some incredible photos of us (unforgettable memory) accompanied by a pleasant bonfire with a small dinner and a hot chocolate. I would definitely repeat with this company. Very happy

    I feel so lucky to have seen the lights! We drove about an hour north of Tromso and our guides seemed very skilled in finding the lights. There were vegetarian and meat options for food as well as coffee. Some of the things that would have made it an exceptional experience (e.g. having a nicer foreground for photos) were really not controllable as the primary goal was just finding the lights - as it should be!
