Northern Norway Troms og Finnmark ALTA

Hunting the Northern Lights

  • Sorrisniva, Alta
  •  /  km From You

Our Hunting the Northern Lights experience offers you the opportunity to join an expert guide and be driven along the coast or up onto the inland plateau searching for the best location to view the Borealis.

The Northern Lights are allusive and sometimes can be seen from different locations whilst not from others on the same evening. Your guide will select the route which offers the best chance of viewing the Borealis given the prevailing weather and atmospheric conditions. Your guide will explain the phenomena and the history of Alta as it relates to the scientific investigation and understanding of it. We will also help with the camera settings required to capture the lights with the best results.

With our minibus, we go out to hunt for the magnificent Northern Lights. The minivan takes 7-8 people, so it becomes a great little group, as we take on the Northern Lights chase. But we reserve the rights to use a minibus wiht 16 seats, if the tour is booked by more than seven persons.

Northern Lights / Aurora Brorealis, Alta Norway
Since the sun starts falling end of August it will get darker and darker in the evening and night during arctic autumn. This gives us beautiful colors both in the nature and in the skies. When the sun starts to rice in beginning of January it will be more and more light every day, and this gives us amazing colors.
