All about the trip
Tromsø is one of the top places in the world to witness the northern lights. We make this experience optimal for you during our comfortable northern lights minibus chase, departing from our base camp in central Tromsø. You will be with one of our dedicated guides, who has the passion to show you best places to observe the lights dance in the sky above. We are here for you on this memorable night of a lifetime.
In small groups with a maximum of 15 people, we will set out into the polar night to one of our favorite spots to watch the northern lights (away from light pollution and with clearest skies possible). If it is cloudy above Tromsø, don’t worry, it is possible to find clear skies at a location further away. Our team will carefully analyze the weather conditions before the tour while keeping in touch with other guides to monitor cloud movements in the local and surrounding areas.
Once we find the best spot, it will be time to wait for the lights to shine while setting up our cameras and taking photos. Your guide will take professional photographs, which will be shared within 3 days of your tour. Your guide will also help you set up your own camera and if you need a tripod, we can let you borrow one of ours for free. Our aim is to create a stress-free, enjoyable and safe way to be able to see the northern lights during your stay in the Arctic.
Your guide will stay with you for the entire evening while making sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. We provide thermal suits and warm, dry boots for the entire duration of the tour. Later in the evening we will make a bonfire, have a warm meal, hot drinks and eat some cookies. If you are a vegetarian or have any other dietary preferences, please let us know and we will make sure there is something for you as well.

Before the tour starts we will meet up at our base camp in central Tromsø for a briefing and introduction to the area we will explore and the northern lights forecast for the evening. The minibus picks you up outside the building so there is no need to walk far or get cold on the way. After the tour, you will have a short walk back to your hotel (our recommended hotels are only located a few hundred meters from our base camp in central Tromsø).
