Full description
Search for the Northern Lights above the stunning fjords, mountains, and lakes around Tromso. Enjoy the best chances for clear skies from September to March and marvel at this natural phenomenon in a small group of no more than 8 people. After pickup at the Radisson Blu Hotel at 7 PM, head to the local partner's office where your camera will be looked at. Set your camera to the proper night/Northern Lights photography settings, after being shown how to do so in a short photography workshop. Then, receive warm overalls, boots, and mittens before driving to the best spot. Relax with coffee and muffins as you wait for the Aurora Borealis or, if you're lucky, watch her dancing as soon as you arrive.

    Stunning!! The guide is passionate! He was very honest and we didn't leave the 1st night because the sky was overcast. He suggested to us: "Either you're all in and we're going, or we tell ourselves that it will be better tomorrow and we'll have a quiet beer in the heat". What great!!

    Despite very little chances (according to the guide only 10% due to the weather), a small group left with the guide, 3/4 withdrew from the tour with money back. And as predicted, we "discovered" a thinner cloud cover far to the north for just under an hour and actually saw and photographed the northern lights through it. Certainly not as impressive as when the sky was clear, but better than none (like 7 years ago in Finland, 7 days there were only clouds).

    The manager/guide is awesome—he’s really experienced and passionate, and has the customer’s best interest at heart. For our original day, it was socked in, with 0 chance of seeing the northern lights. Instead of taking us out to freeze and collecting our money, he cancelled and let us book again another day. He also took excellent; professional pictures for free. A true class act!
