Northern Lights Chase by Minibus
The tour departs from our activity shop in the center of Tromsø. From there, we will depart by minibus and leave the city to escape light pollution and find clear skies for watching the northern lights. We choose the direction of the chase based on the weather predictions made prior to each tour, so each night can bring a different experience. Please note that sometimes we end up towards the coasts, and other nights we may find ourselves chasing the aurora to the border of Finland.
Once we have found a suitable location and clear skies, we will start a small campfire, serve a warm stew and enjoy a warm beverage as we wait for the northern lights to occur.
If you are lucky and the northern lights start flickering above in the sky, the guide can take portrait photos which will be send to you afterwards. 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 maximise our chances of a successful chase.
