Select Date and Travelers

This is a personal and extraordinary hunt for the Northern Lights, an experience you will never forget. Your Northern Lights chase is guided by a mix of professional tour guides and experienced local aurora hunters, all in small groups as it makes the experience more genuine.
  • Prebook online to snag your spot of this popular Northern Lights tour
  • Stay warm with insulated overalls that are provided for you
  • Chase the Northern Lights with a guide who knows the best places to see them
  • Fuel up for the journey with snacks and hot beverages
  • Get photography tips from your guide, as well as a tripod to use
What to Expect
Your Northern Lights tour begins with a pickup from the Radisson Blu in Tromso. Once you’ve met your guide and group, you’ll head far away from the city lights into the arctic countryside to some of the best places for seeing Aurora Borealis. Some trips even travel all the way to the Swedish or Finnish borders. Catch sight of the beautiful mountains, fjords, and valleys as you drive. Along the journey, enjoy snacks, dinner, and hot beverages. If there’s a good place to view the lights, your guide usually makes a campfire for everyone to sit by. You can also learn from your guide how to take the best photos of the Northern Lights. If you need a tripod, one will be provided for you. After all the excitement, your tour ends with a drop-off at your hotel in Tromso.
