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, snacks, and warm locally-made stew. 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.

    Valerio was a great guide and took us to a location down south to view the pretty northern lights. He went above and beyond in taking photos ( he took plenty of photos which I am grateful for as a solo traveller ) , he was so friendly and made the tour worthwhile . I highly recommend this tour for anybody wanting to see the northern lights .

    We had Frederica as our guide and she was really great! She explained everything to us right from the start and said where we were going. Arriving in the middle of nowhere, we only had to wait 10 minutes and the Northern Lights appeared overhead. It was a dream that came true for us.

    I had a really great time on the tour. Our guide Anette tried very hard and was incredibly helpful. She took a lot of photos of us with the Northern Lights and explained camera settings. She sent us the photos within a few hours. There were hot drinks, biscuits, marshmallows by the campfire and Labskaus. And thanks to the thermal suits, waiting for the lights was very pleasant. We often had to change the spot because clouds kept coming up. Anette made sure we didn't miss an opportunity and checked out every spot until the end. Thank you for everything!
