“Active under the Northern Lights”

Tromsø is right in the middle of the planet’s Northern lights belt, and any flare of solar storms on the surface of the sun will be spotted

here! Evening activities help you to be outside when the Aurora Borealis light up the night sky! Daytime excursions are good for enjoying the breathtaking landscapes!

6.45pm Go hunting for the beautiful Northern Light.

The Northern Lights chase is an excursion with the main purpose of

watching the Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis. We start from your hotel and start the chasing by minibus. We try to find stable dry weather with clear sky. The patient Aurora watcher will have excellent chances of spotting the light as we go to an uninhabited area where no artificial light will disturb your experience or your attempt to

capture the Aurora Borealis on photo. The guide will focus on sharing tips and techniques on how to photograph the lights; we also bring extra tripods with us.

During the tour you will be served a hot meal and enjoy the magic by

the open fire. Remember to bring your camera!
