Full description

Search for the northern lights on this day trip from Tromsø. Journey through the microclimates surrounding Tromsø in search of clear skies. Get your picture taken with the northern lights by your guide and stay toasty with thermal suits, hot packs, a fire, and warm food and drinks.

Before picking you up from the meeting place in a comfortable vehicle, your guide will carefully analyze the weather forecast in order to take you to the areas where the clearest sky is expected that night. Board the bus and relax on a drive through the wilderness.

Our guide and photographer Max was excellent! Before and during the tour, he diligently researched the best locations. He also took the time to explain the formation of the aurora to everyone. His expertise is very profound! At the campfire, where there were even vegetarian sausages, there was an extremely pleasant atmosphere. The pictures Max captured are incredible and were available just a few hours after arriving at the hotel! Our driver was also very friendly and helpful. Hats off to this performance on sometimes very icy roads!

It was amazing! Barbra was our guide and she was very knowledgeable. We found some lights as soon as we dove outside of Tromsø but they weren’t strong. Then we drove off to Finland to find some very strong activity and dancing auroras! It was so beautiful and she took some great pictures of us with her professional camera. After that we set a campfire in the snow and has some reindeer and vegetarian sausages. When the tour was over we were dropped off at our hotels since it was late. It was such a surreal experience I would defined recommend it!

Harry is the best guide I have ever met. Although the weather was bad, he took us to see the wonderful aurora with his professional knowledge and experience. My friend who participated in other tour groups the same time did not see the aurora. The campfire and sausages are also really good! Harry also shared a lot of stories about the aurora with us, it was really interesting. I think I will come back many times, thank you Harry for such a wonderful experience.
