This tour is a personal and extraordinary hunt for the Northern Lights, an experience you will never forget, a private group tour, in a big bus. You will be guided by a mix of professional tour guides and experienced aurora hunters who will make sure you get the most out of your experience.

The tour is specially tailored to explore the Arctic nature while you are hunting for the Northern Lights. The main purpose is to give you an authentic experience of the countryside outside of Tromsø while you are admiring the Aurora Borealis. Your local guides will pick you up in the city center and take you on a journey through beautiful mountains, fjords, and valleys.

Chasing Clear Skies & Northern Lights

During the tour, you will experience Tromsø's wildlife and beautiful scenery, weather permitting. We will make stops along the way to take photos of the unique nature and scenery, and we will choose where to go depending on the weather conditions and where we can find clear skies.

Sometimes, we go as far as the Finnish and Swedish borders to find the right conditions for the lights.

Free of Charge Pictures

This tour is suitable for large groups but is always conducted in a cozy and friendly atmosphere. You can expect an unforgettable experience as the Arctic nature is unpredictable. You will be provided with an insulated whole-body suit, snacks, and hot drinks. Your guide will take photos on the tour and share them with you after the trip, free of charge.

If you want to take your own pictures, you can rent a tripod from us. Our guides will be there to give you good advice and tips if you need them.

After the tour, you will be taken directly back to your hotel. If you have a small group, we also offer a Northern Light Chase in a minibus.

Amazing cruise even though the weather was not great the tour operator did everything to help make the trip fun. Saw various birds and even managed to catch a fish. Food was also great and plentiful, even catered for food allergies.

Stunningly beautiful. As a person whose been to many remote places the sights here were truly stunning. Also the man who led the tour is absolutely hilarious.

It was a really really good experience, very well organized and father and son were a really good crew. We had done to the wale safari too which was also a good trip, Thomas is a really nice and friendly guy. We can only say we will do it again if we stay in tromsø.

Amazing trip. The guides were fun, friendly and helpful. They shared stories about them and interesting information about the area. The captain was great at getting close to the whales, we got there before everyone else each time.
