Full description

Join this expert-led, small-group excursion to see nature's finest light show. Take part in a chase where the destination changes depending on the best chance of seeing the lights.

Sometimes the drive will be out to the coast, sometimes inland, and other times past three fjords up to the Finnish border. The final decision is left as late as possible to maximize your chance of seeing the majestic lights dancing in the sky. Hop in the van and meet your group and expert guide. After finding the perfect spot, settle in and wait for the brilliant colors of the Northern Lights to appear. Your guide will help you adjust your camera so you can take the best photos of them. Enjoy some hot drinks and biscuits while keeping an eye on the sky. Enjoy an exclusive chase with a maximum group size of 16 guests. Your guide will be happy to answer all your questions and will take high-resolution photos to share with the group after the tour.

    One of the most magical experiences! Very much appreciate Stefan for making our dreams come true by finding the lights with help from forecasts and calling friends in the field. He was very informative and had great energy for an enjoyable experience. We had a two-hour show we could have never expected!

    This experience might be the most memorable of my trip in Tromsø. The guide was really great, gave clear and simple explanations and was totally passionate in northern lights ! Embark on board and wait for the spot, then go out, wait and watch that life time experience !! I highly recommand that activity with that organization. They didn’t hesitate to wait longer at the spot and it paid: the real northern lights show was only beginning and we would have lost this opportunity if we had left earlier. Everything was great :)

    This tour was brilliant! We were able to switch the days since the weather conditions were so bad. Magne was an excellent guide, so knowledgeable and a lovely person. We found the lights within an hour! Magne took photos for us and also helped us take our own photos. P.s wear lots of layers of clothes!
