Full description

Drive out into beautiful remote scenery in a custom-built 4x4 tour van. Most of the time this is a short drive to the surrounding coastal islands of Tromsø, or if needed a long drive into Finland. Even though the Aurora appears most nights, no forecast can predict what you are going to see, and it's all about taking chances. Upon reaching suitable skies, set up camp for the evening. Warm up around the roaring campfire, whilst getting to know fellow travelers. Enjoy a hearty homemade soup, cookies, and hot beverages. You will also be provided with everything you may need to survive in the arctic temperatures.

If you bring your own camera, you will be provided with the use of quality tripods. Learn from your guides how to get the most out of your photographs. All the photos the guides take of you and the Auroras will be shared with you the very next day at no extra charge.

    Know before you go

    • This tour is not recommended for people with limited mobility
    • Northern Lights Sunset: Autumn (end August - beginning September), Spring (end March - April). During these times it is possible to see the Aurora, but it may appear weaker, as the nights are brighter and shorter.
    • Moon Phase: Visiting around new moon will give you the darkest skies, causing the Northern Lights to appear stronger, and on clear nights filling the sky with stars. Whilst during full moon, the Aurora may appear fainter, but illuminates the landscapes which can make for very effect-full photographs.

    Best experience! Would recommend this activity for everyone who is looking for a very personal and private tour guide. Jeff and Hannah are really kind and helpful which make your experience even more smooth. Jeff helped me to configure my camera to take the best pictures of the northern lights. Meanwhile he was taking a lot of pictures of us with his own camera. We sat around the fire got to know each other ate a really delicious homemade soup to help to keep us warm. Meaning, they created the best environment for us to wait for the Northern lights even with the extreme cold we felt comfortable to sit there for the whole night if necessary.

    One of the best experiences ever! Highly recommended!!! It was a five star experience at a very reasonable price! The guide was one of the best we have had! The atmosphere was excellent, our expectations were not only met but exceeded! This is the way to go when in Tromsø. ☺️✌

    Absolutely wonderful experience. Very personal service from the coordination and collection and all the way through to being dropped back off at our hotel. Even the day after, receiving a link to download our personalized photos from the trip with a lovely message from Hannah and Jeff our guide. We would wholeheartedly recommend this small company to anyone wanting to experience a unique evening!
