Full description

Go on an adventurous search for the Northern Lights with an expert local guide who will find the best spot for viewing opportunities on the night of your outing. You will be picked up at the meeting point, and ride away from the pollution of the city lights and into the darkness of the fjords, forests, and mountains. Your guide will choose the best spot within a 350 km area to see the Northern Lights. While waiting to see if the lights appear, enjoy hot chocolate with cake or snacks for a warm and sweet start. Then, if the weather allows, sit by a bonfire and enjoy the Arctic beauty while roasting marshmallows. Your guide will share the facts, stories, traditions, beliefs, and superstitions about the lights as you warm by the fire.

When the Aurora Borealis does appear, your guide will take professional pictures and share them with you for free. They will also help you to get the best out of your cameras and even mobile phones. Every guest has a free Aurora portrait included in the tour. You have the option to take more pictures if you want as an additional service. Conclude your tour with a drop-off close to your hotel in the city center. If you are staying at a private accommodation outside of the city center, you can book the drop off at your address when you book your ticket.

We got really lucky and saw the northern lights 3 times on this trip without having to travel too long or too far. It was really memorable and the photos were amazing. The only downside is that of course it was freezing and the campfire didn’t really keep us that warm. I wish there had been the option to wait in the van with the heating on for a while as we really suffered with the cold. Other than that a great experience - snacks provided were a hot chocolate and piece of cake, and a few marshmallows to toast.

Had such an amazing time in this guided tour! We were very lucky with the weather so we saw the aurora really clearly in the sky. Our guide was very friendly and brought a bonfire, marshmallows, cake and hot chocolate. Met some great people on the tour as well. Overall the experience was exceptional! This guide in particular is really good value for money (if you do end up seeing the aurora), and is really worthwhile.

A fantastic experience that lasted the entire 7 hours. Our guide, Mansoor, drove us out 30 minutes to a relatively isolated spot where we stopped to put on thermal suits. Mansoor then set up a fire, placed chairs, and animal skin rugs for us to sit on. Once the lights were prominently on display, Mansoor took photos of each person in the tour group in front of the lights. He also helped people to set up their camera to take good pictures themselves. Mansoor provided hot cocoa, lefsa, and marshmallows to roast. As we were driving back home, Mansoor stopped the car because he saw the light flare up again. He made sure we all saw it, and took more photos of everyone. After the tour, he sent everyone a link to the photos he took.
