The Northern lights, also known as aurora borealis, are a natural phenomenon that almost doesn’t seem real. The beautiful colorful dancing waves in the otherwise dark sky is due to the energized particles from the sun that slam into Earth’s upper atmosphere at immense speeds. The northern lights experience is known to be the best in Tromso, in the Norwegian Arctic.
At Polar Adventures we have a long history of chasing the Northern lights, and we encourage you to bring your family and friends on a northern light experience they will never forget. We are a small family-business that take pride in our nature here in Tromso and are more than happy to share this with as many people as possible.
While joining us on our northern lights experience, you will also witness the idyllic scenery of Tromso and the Norwegian arctic. It is unlike any other, where the harsh mountains meet the blue, impeccable waters.
