Northern Lights Basecamp in Breivikeidet
Between the late September and early March Northern Norway is dark from an early afternoon until a late morning. During this dark period, you have the highest possibility to witness the appearance of the glorious Northern Lights also known as the Aurora Borealis and let yourself to drown in this heart-stopping moment, when the green and purple Lights are billowing and shimmering across the sky.
The tour starts from Tromsø with a 50-minute drive to our basecamp in Breivikeidet - our location for the evening. Here you can enjoy the Northern Lights from different vantage points. These can include a short guided walk with stunning views of the Lyngen Alps or other viewpoints that provide great experiences in the Polar Night. If your fingers are getting frosty – warm yourself up in our restaurant with a cup of coffee/tea or hide from the arctic wind in a cozy traditional Sami tent called Lavvo before heading back out to hunt for the Lights again! Of course, there is no guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights, but you’re definitely in for a good chance!
