Northern Lights Tour
NOK 1400 per person
Ready for an adventure with us? Make yourself comfortable whilst we take care of everything else. We will pick you up with our van from your accommodation in Tromsø at 6:30 PM. Before the tour starts, our guide will analyse the weather conditions in order to predict the best spots for the Northern Lights show. During most of our tours, we are able to find Aurora on the Coastal islands, occasionally the clear skies will be waiting for us in Finland. Once we find the perfect spot, we will set up a bonfire and begin to capture the spectacle on camera.
Relax whilst sipping hot drinks, warming up with a hearty meal and enjoying delicious cookies. Don’t worry about being cold. We have thermal suits, boots and heat packs waiting for you in the van, but do remember to dress properly (check FAQ below). Our guide will take pictures during the tour and will make sure that you have your perfect photo with the Aurora. If you decide to bring your own camera, we have tripods available and will help you with the camera set up. Pictures taken during the tour will be sent to you the next day. The duration of the tour can vary from 6-9 hours, weather dependent. After the tour, we will drop you off back at your accommodation.

Cancellation by guests
We understand that different situations may arise that can lead to the need for tour cancellation from your side as well. Nevertheless, as we put a lot of effort into the preparation of our tours and reserve all places once booked, bookings are only eligible for a full refund if canceled up until 48 hours prior to tour start. Bookings that are canceled after this time will not be refunded. If you book a tour and do not show up at the arranged meeting point, there will be no refund either.
Will I get a refund in the case of bad/dangerous weather conditions?

What should I bring with me?
Remember to dress properly (please read “How should I be dressed for the tour?”). You can bring your own camera but it is not a must. We offer you a warm meal (vegetarian/vegan option) with hot drinks and delicious cookies. If you need to eat something before/after, please bring a snack with you.

During most of our tours, it is possible to use a public toilet at a petrol station or other area that we pass during the car ride. However, there are also trips when we must go into the wilderness with no access the public toilets. In that case, you will have multiple natural options to pick from!
Can you guarantee that I will see the Northern Lights?
We wish we could, but we cannot control weather conditions or solar activity. Therefore we cannot guarantee that you will see the Northern Lights.
