Northern Lights Chase by Bus
The tour departs from our activity shop in the center of Tromsø. From there, we will drive by bus to the location with the highest possibilities of aurora viewing that day. Meaning, we will chase low light pollution and minimal cloud coverage. Once we have found the most suitable location, hot drinks will be served along with biscuits as we wait for the northern lights to occur.
Our guides will stay with you for the entire evening while making sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. As the weather in Tromsø is very unpredictable, we might move along to various places throughout the night. If you are lucky and the northern lights start flickering above in the sky, our guides will take some portrait photos which will be sent to you after the tour.
The time of return to Tromsø depends on the course of the tour: the distance of the chase, weather conditions and the northern lights displays.
Of course we cannot offer any guarantees since the northern lights are a natural phenomenon. Still, we promise to use all our experience to maximize our chances of a successful chase.
