Northern Lights Sailing

    What to Expect
    We are very passionate about The Northern Lights and will do everything we can do to provide you with the most memorable experience while waiting for the sky to start dancing in the sky above you. There are many ways to enjoy nature’s best light show, but our favorite is to combine it with a warm, comfortable cruise through the fjords surrounding Tromsø.

    Why watch the northern lights by boat instead of car you may ask? Sailing through the fjords in the polar night is a very unique and different experience than driving to a certain spot in a car or bus. We are able to keep moving with the lights, while being able to go inside to grab a fresh coffee, stay warm and enjoy the lights on the net of a spacious catamaran.

    Our skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area we have found the best spots in which we will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.

    We did several tours whilst in Tromso. Pukka travels were really good to deal with. We were well informed about pickups and inclusions. I don’t know how they find their guides but they were all really relaxed and informative. We had so much fun!

    Nice hospitality. Happy to talk to different comers from different country. We enjoy the bit of lights and the fish soup very much. Wonder if we can drive further away from the city.

    Hi Jorge, I would recommend taking an SLR camera, as our mobile Iphone cameras didn't pick up any pictures. There were a couple of people on board with us, who took amazing pictures with their SLR cameras. Enjoy!
