Northern Lights Chase in a Small Group
This evening excursion departs from downtown Tromsø to the direction with the best weather forecast for observing the Northern Lights. Sometimes we drive out to the coast, sometimes inland and other times past three fjords up to the Finnish border. We leave the final decision as late as possible to maximise your chases of achieving what you came for – seeing the majestic Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) dancing in the sky. When we find the perfect spot, we park the minibus and wait for the Northern Lights to appear. In the meantime, we help you adjust your camera so you can take good photos of the Northern Lights. We also serve hot drinks and biscuits while keeping an eye on the sky.
Maximum group size is 16 guests. Travelling in a small group offers a more relaxing experience away from the crowds, and you will give you plenty of time to speak with the guide and ask any questions you may have.
PHOTOS OF THE TOUR
The guide will take high-resolution photos of the chase, which will be shared free of charge after the tour. If you would like to have a portrait with the Northern Lights, please approach our guide with the request.
The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is a natural phenomenon, and we can’t offer any guarantees to see the Aurora or predict the way it will occur. However, given our experience and the flexible nature of this small group chase, most of our cases are successful.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
We will serve hot drinks & biscuits, but we highly recommend to eat dinner before the tour and perhaps bring some snacks & water along.
WHAT TO WEAR & BRING WITH YOU
In the Norwegian winter, you may experience snow, rain & wind. We recommend dressing in layers so you can adjust your clothing to the weather. We advise to bring along wind & waterproof outer layers and several warm inner layers. Hat, scarf & gloves are essential. We recommend spacious winter boots & winter socks. However, we have winter suites to borrow if needed.
