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.

Once a proper location to observe the Aurora Borealis has been found, the bonfire begins. Enjoy piping hot drinks, lamb or soy sausages, and cookies. Thermal suits and heat packs are provided to make sure that you stay warm and cozy during the tour.

Share in your guide's passion for photography as you take night shots of the northern lights. All pictures taken during the tour will be sent to you the next day. Bring your own camera and use your guide's tripods. Return to your accommodation in Tromsø at the end of your tour.

This tour was so amazing. Our guide, Harry, first of all made us all use our seatbelts which other tours noticeably did not. He explained the Aurora in detail as well as some historical facts. Sitting around the bonfire eating and drinking beverages made the group bond quite quickly. Harry took many individual portraits as well as Aurora photos and the reflections of Aurora on the surrounding fjord and water pools. His photography is simply amazing. Breathtakingly beautiful. Almost 2 1/2 hours of nonstop Northern Lights. WOW. Our driver, Patrick, never took his eyes of the road. We put our faith in his abilities to take us on this journey through winding, hilly roads and he did not disappoint. Barbara was a trainee and was their mostly to observe, but did her share of helping with set-up, etc. If I had the chance to do it again, I would only tour with them. No others. My highest recommendation to this fine group.

We had some perfect experience with them we was 10 people in a group, Harry was our guide, with a lot of experience, on the beginning was kinda bad weather and a small hope but he just stopped with us in a spot that he knew it would be nice and some time later the big show started, everyone got impressed all the night along (also Harry!), he made also a very good fireplace, told historys about local fairy tales and talked about a lot of things. He also takes a lot of perfect pictures and helped us to configurate our camera and take our own pictures also, anyway was a perfect experience, i really recommend them, thank you for the night and I am so sorry for the accident with the camera Harry…

Very good tour with a spectacular guide and driver. We drive to clearer skies and set up a small camp where we wait for the auroras while having hot drinks and sausages. Already with the sky covered by clouds, we started the return but we made a brief additional stop in a small window that the clouds gave us and we saw a new incredible show!
