Full description

Experience the northern lights on a guided excursion from Tromsø. Board a bus and head to a location where the chances of seeing this natural phenomenon are high. As you wait to spot this incredible light display, enjoy hot drinks and biscuits.

Set off from the center of Tromsø and head to a location with low light pollution, minimal cloud coverage, and the highest chances of aurora viewing that day. Upon arrival, hot drinks will be served along with biscuits while you wait for the northern lights to occur.

As the weather in Tromsø can change, you may need to throughout the night. Your guides will make sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. If you're lucky and the northern lights start flickering above you in the sky, your guides will take some photos which will be sent to you after the tour.

I had been in Tromso for 4 nights, and gone on 2 tours to see the Northern Lights but couldn't due to bad weather. I booked this tour as a last attempt before leaving the next day and my tour guide Ellie was absolutely determined to give me + the group the best chance to see them. We drove all the way to Finland border to try, made several stops, checked the skies, had snacks around a fire - but sadly nature evaded us! Ellie tried so hard for us, and kept us entertained and comfortable and information along the way. But be prepared for no sightings as sometimes nature doesn't work that way.

This is a must visit tour guide group! The guides were excellent and took us to a few places, but one spot was the best and we stayed there the longest. We had a small fire to warm by, small snacks and warm drinks, but the lights were amazing! We saw greens, purples, and pinks, which we were told was rare to see them all for as long as we did. We watched the lights wash over one set of mountains across the opposite ones, and with the moon, everything was visible. The tour guides took lots of pictures for us and shared alot of information and helped us setup our own cameras as well.

A very well organised trip. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable about both the lights and how to capture them. We were able to travel to an area with an amazing backdrop for the lights which lit up the sky. The guide was also able to take pictures and give everyone tips on their own cameras too! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting the best chance of seeing the lights.
