Arctic Northern Lights Tour

Northern lights tour is a unique and intensely private experience. We go as a small group with no more than 8 participants.

All are welcome to join in our tour. However, we do have a minimum age requirement of at least 6 years of age and above for all participants.

Our friendly and professional guides are focused on helping you achieve the best possible experience every night. We constantly follow the updated weather forecast, Aurora activity development and throughout the night we remain in contact with other guides, so we are aware of the weather changes at different locations.

In order to maximize your chances to observe northern lights from the best possible locations within a maximum of 250 kilometres radius from Tromsø city, or maximum 3.5 hours one-way drive, we may drive as far as 100 kilometres into Finland.

Our tour may last between 6 and 9 hours and will depend on the distance which we will have to cover, on the weather and on the northern lights’ activity. In order to keep everyone as warm as possible during the cold Arctic nights, all our customers will be provided with warm thermal suits, snow boots, mittens and hats.

On average, we take five pictures of each customer and also numerous aurora pictures and nature sceneries. All images from our tour including a dropbox link will be sent to you by e-mail the next day of the tour.

Every northern lights tour with our 8 seats’ minivan reservation includes a light home-made dinner, snacks, hot drinks, bonfire, large reindeer skins, camera tripods, hand and toe warmers.

For more information and in order to achieve the best experience during the entirety of your trip, we invite you to read detailed information about the northern lights, photography, weather, recommended equipment and warm clothing on our website
