Small-Group Aurora Hunt Northern Lights Tour from Tromso
From $199.01
The Northern Lights are notoriously hard to predict, even in Tromso. So it makes sense to increase your chances of a sighting by joining a guided excursion, especially if you’re only in Tromso briefly. This tour delivers—a guide chooses a prime viewpoint according to the day’s weather and you'll enjoy soup beside a firelit camp as you watch. A drop-off back at your hotel afterward is included.
What to Expect
Begin your tour in central Tromso, setting off into the outlying fells by air-conditioned vehicle. Your tour may take you across the border into Finland if conditions require, so passports are required.

On route, your guide uses local knowledge to select a good viewing point. Having chosen it, they'll set up camp and light a bonfire, so you can watch for the lights in the warmth and comfort. 

Enjoy a homemade soup and scan the skies. You may need to wait for a brief sighting; or you may be lucky enough to witness an extended display. As you watch, hear background on this natural wonder from your guide.

If you want to take photos, get advice from your guide on capturing the best shots. You’ll also receive souvenir photos after your tour to take home with you.

Your outing finishes with a hotel drop-off back in Tromso.

Lights and Soup

Luck is a major component of seeing the northern lights, and we were indeed lucky the night I went, it being clear and the lights deciding to show. So I can't comment on how well this company's guides will adjust for uncooperative weather. But, I...More

The best things come unexpectedly

The aurora forecast for that night was not the best, it was very cloudy. We could not see the stars in Tromsø, but we wanted to see northern lights so much, so we went on the tour with Wandering Owl. Our guide Zoe was optimistic...More

Successful Northern Lights hunt!

Great evening out chasing the lights!

I was lucky to get the last spot available with Wandering Owl - the aurora forecast was very good for that night. The weather was cloudy over Tromso so Delphin, our guide, drove more than two hours out of town to Finland to find us...More
