Full description

Maximize your chances of seeing the Northern Lights on this exciting trip combining a Northern Lights and a visit to an Aurora Camp. 

Set off by bus from Tromsø to chase the Northern Lights. Where you head depends on the Aurora and weather forecasts. Your experienced guides will find the best photo stop with excellent conditions and a scenic backdrop. Your guides are also professional photographers and will help you with your camera settings so you can take your own photos. 

After 2 or more hours, drive to one of the exclusive Aurora Camps. The three camps, located in the Tomok Valley, Lyngen, and Kvaløya, each have 2 comfortable lavvus (Sami tents) and toilet facilities. Divide into two smaller groups, each with your own lavvu and guide. The decision of which camp to go to will be left as late as possible so the guides can see where the Northern Lights are dancing. W

arm stew with flatbread and either fishcakes or sausages will be served. Warm winter clothes and tripods are also available. Of course, guaranteed sightings of the Northern Lights cannot be assured as they are a natural phenomenon, but your guides promise to use all their experience to maximize your chances of a successful chase.

    The night was magical, the aurora borealis were there. The guides Simone and Diego were very friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had great photos. On the other hand, big disappointment for the "dinner" in the lavu. The fire is tiny and does not heat up at all. The meal described in the description (soup, fish cakes and sausage) was not served as such. We only had the right to a little soup. Too bad, with negative temperatures we would have liked to have had a good time by the fire.

    For us it was the best excursion, not only because we saw the aurora (which is not cheap ...) but for the organization ... we left in the direction of the aurora camps where there were 2 tents waiting for us Lavvu dei Sami with fire and good food ... we met other people and they told us that the previous evening they had been to another "camping", so the guides take you where you are more likely to see the aurora ... while having dinner , we went out and here it is the Northern Lights manifesting themselves ... a beautiful experience ...

    i have nothing else to say about our guides Iris & Ronan because they've done such perfect job. they are funny and very knowledgable. provided detailed yet easily understandable explanation about the northern light. the bus ride was pleasant, the tent and fire definitely are the saviour in the unforgiving winter nights. the food provided are very tasty too. it is unfortunate that we were less lucky that night because the northern light was very faint and it only show for like 2 minutes but the whole trip was so awesome and enjoyable I have decided to book another trip with them
