Full description

Experience the northern lights on a guided excursion from Tromsø. Board a bus and head to a location where the chances of seeing this natural phenomenon are high. As you wait to spot this incredible light display, enjoy hot drinks and biscuits.

Set off from the center of Tromsø and head to a location with low light pollution, minimal cloud coverage, and the highest chances of aurora viewing that day. Upon arrival, hot drinks will be served along with biscuits while you wait for the northern lights to occur.

As the weather in Tromsø can change, you may need to throughout the night. Your guides will make sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. If you're lucky and the northern lights start flickering above you in the sky, your guides will take some photos which will be sent to you after the tour.

Super great trip! The guides tried very hard and also explained the camera settings to us or even adjusted them on the camera. We easily saw the Northern Lights despite the not so good weather! It was worth it for that. we drove to the Finnish border. Only criticism is that we stopped about 300m past customs to see the Northern Lights. Unfortunately, there was a lot of external light.

We were initially very skeptical about the experience as we did believe in the aurora apps and KP indices on the day (17/01/23) and thought there was a 0% chance of seeing aurora borealis! But I must say Magnus and Silje did a great job in finding aurora and were very friendly and efficient! Despite the weather conditions we still managed got to see the northern lights in two different locations! They were perfect tour guides who were fun and informative, pictures turned out great too!

I joined several tours and i think this is the best and suitable for me and my family. Elizabeth and the man guide (i forget his name) were so nice, informative, so charming, so patient and the most important thing is they have aurora photography skill that help us to take amazing aura pic with their camera. The result is fantastic. I use my iphone and my gopro but with my poor skill, i didnt get good pic. So i rely on their pic of me and the result was amazing. We went to chase aurora by bus. The bus has toilet and it was so good and clean. I came with my 6 years old daughter who always need the toilet so toilet is a good idea for this tour. They offered hot chocolate and biscuits too. We stopped 2 times. The first stop we didnt get aurora but on the second stop, we got it. The dancing aurora and it was so pretty! I reccomend this tour for family because the bus is very comfortable and the driver has amazing skill to ride it in the difficult road. Bravo.
