Overview
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.

Highlights
  • Up the chances of seeing the Northern Lights on an evening tour from Tromso
  • No time-wasting random searches—visit a location based on day’s weather 
  • Get expert photography tips and souvenir photos as keepsakes
  • Hotel drop-off included after tour for extra convenience
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.

We saw the lights beginning of Feb 2020, and due to very bad weather conditions around Tromso, we ended up crossing the Finnish border. Bart was a great guide and did his best to make the tour unforgettable. The spot he picked was fantastic (frozen lake!) and we were lucky

WOW 881sylwias! This sounds like an incredible experience! We are committed to doing our best, every night of the season. As you know, some nights we must travel a few hours inland, up the plateau, to find clear skies and other evenings the best spot for reduced cloud coverage is closer, perhaps on the coastline. We are delight to hear feedback and happy you enjoyed your cosy camp of a frozen lake in Finland.

We did this trip on 29th February 2020 and I cant thank Wandering Owl, and in particular our guide Max enough. Highly recommended! We saw three separate shows of the Aurora and that is partially luck- BUT without Max's knowledge of the best places to go, the changing weather
