Join us for a Northern Lights chase as we drive away from the city center to escape the light pollution and find clear skies.
This tour is conducted by Destination Tromsø.
For this tour you will be picked up from the meeting point in Tromsø and driven by bus to the location with the highest possibilities of aurora viewing that day, chasing low light pollution and minimal cloud coverage. Once we have found the most suitable location, we will disembark the bus, serve hot drinks 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.
Warm winter clothes, boots and tripods are provided by us at the start of the tour.
There is no refund if the northern lights do not appear. However, you may book a second tour at 50% discount.
This tour does not include a full meal.
Please bring: We recommend our guests dressing well, with warm layers of wool and a down jacket. We also recommend you to bring a hat, mittens, scarf, and warm socks
