Full description

Hunt down the Northern Lights with a local guide well-trained in tracking this natural phenomenon.

Begin your adventure at the local supplier's base camp in central Tromsø where you will meet for a briefing and introduction to the area you will explore, as well as the Northern Lights forecast for the evening. Then board the comfortable tour minibus.

Your guide will work with other guides and weather and communication analysis to ensure you have the best chance of clear views of the northern lights. They will also take professional photos on their cameras and help you set up your camera for the best shot as well.

Your guide will stay with you for the entire evening while making sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. Thermal suits and warm, dry boots are provided for the entire duration of the tour.

Later in the evening, enjoy the warmth of a bonfire and a hot meal, with roasted marshmallows and hot drinks. At the end of the tour, get dropped off by the minibus back at the base camp.

We had a short explanation about our trip before with our guide that gave us a briefing about the Northern lights, very clarifying. The mini bus was a little bit tight because we were full but nothing that became an issue after chasing the light and managing to see it. Mind-blowing experience. We got the photos of the trip the day after. Recommend to everyone.

The guide was beautiful and responsible, although the aurora index was very small that day, but still took us to chase the aurora, because warm clothes and shoes were provided, so my journey was no longer cold, and the soup was really good! Roasted marshmallows were also fun, and the guide even helped me call a cab at the end, thanks!

We had a super nice guide who explained a lot to us in advance. The lady in the office was right when she said, oh you can always find lights with her! She always finds a gap between the clouds. We ended up with clear starry skies and an unforgettable experience.
