Northern lights chase by bus

Prepare to embark on an extraordinary journey with us, chasing the magic in the Arctic skies from the heart of Tromsø. We will be chasing low light pollution and trying to dodge those pesky clouds that might try to steal the show of the aurora borealis from us.

This tour is conducted by Norwegian Travel/Destination Tromsø. Our mission is to take you on a thrilling ride searching the celestial canvas above. We will be heading to the prime spots with the highest odds of catching the mesmerising auroras.
Once we have found the perfect spot, where the stage is set for nature's grand performance, we will give you steaming hot drinks and biscuits to help you keep warm. Our dedicated guides will be your Arctic companions throughout the evening, ensuring you a comfortable experience.

For extra comfort, you can rent thermal suits and boots at the meeting point of the tour. Since Tromsø's weather likes to keep us guessing, we might just turn this adventure into a dance with the elements, taking you to various awe-inspiring locations under the Arctic night sky in search of our lady in the sky.
If we are blessed by the Northern Lights gracing us with their presence, your photography guide will capture those magical moments with some stunning portrait photos. Consider it your cosmic photo op, capturing memories that will last a lifetime. If you are looking to take northern lights picture yourself, your guide will be happy to help and share tips and tricks with you.
