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 the 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, and enjoy hot drinks. 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.

Our dedicated team of guides is doing an extensive weather forecast before the tour and takes you on a chase towards the area where we can see has the highest chance for seeing the northern lights. With that said, some evenings when the forecast is rather challenging for parts of the region the chase will be limited to areas where the guide sees the highest potential for clear skies and northern lights as it during some evenings is not beneficial to do a chase with several stops.
While we serve a hot meal on this tour, it is recommended to have a light snack before the tour as the meal is served later at night. Also please let us know during the booking any eventual dietary restrictions. Also please let us know during the booking any eventual dietary restrictions.
