Overview
What to Expect
We pick you up in Tromsø and take you by minibus on a chase for the magical Northern lights. Pioner of small groups, Tromsø Friluftsenter, a family ran company, has from 2004 given our guest adventures in nature straight from our hearts. We focus on small groups that gives the personal touch. With the best local knowledge we will find the best area for the lights and good scenery for your pictures. To find a clear sky we will drive where we have to, even to Finland if needed. 

During the evening your guide will show you a moovie, and tell you interesting information about the Northern lights, both the science and the folklore. We will also show you how to adjust your camera settings for pictures of the northern lights, and we will take pictures of you with the lights for you to take home to show your family and friends. (Available for download in original size from our Flickr account). We may also visit our lavvu (our modern Sami shelter) and sit around the nice warm bonfire, and roast marshmallows (If we are within reasonable driving distance from our base camp).

Occasionally the chance of a clear sky is low, and in that case we will advise you before the excursion starts to get your money refunded instead. We recommend to book more than one day during high season!

Very competent guiding. Grazie Trine!! Even when we were not that lucky with the weather it was a great experience, a trip ending up in Finland under a beautiful Arctic night. We got some nice coffee and a tasty chocolate cake... and even some greenish glow on the horizon. Nice
