This tour is conducted by Destination Tromsø. Tromsø is one of the top places in the world to witness the Northern Lights due to the geographical location. Join us for a Northern Lights chase as we drive up to 2.5 hours (300km) away from the city center to escape the light pollution and find clear skies. The perfect combination of comfort, nature, great company and passion for this natural phenomenon.
For this tour you will be picked up from Tromsø city center by a big bus and brought to the best location for Aurora viewing, away from the light pollution and cloud coverage. Once we find clear skies, hot drinks will be served along with biscuits as we wait for the Northern Lights to occur. A professional guide will stay with you for the entire evening while making sure you are as comfortable and warm as possible. There will be Wi-Fi on board of the bus in addition to a toilet. If you are lucky and the Northern Lights start flickering above in the sky, the guide can take portrait photos, which will be sent to you after the tour.
The purpose of the budget-friendly tour is to provide our guests with the opportunity to join a Northern Lights tour without breaking the wallet. Our guides are highly trained professionals with extensive knowledge of the Aurora Borealis. Of course, we can’t 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.
Note! There is no refund if the Northern Lights do not appear, however you may book a second tour at 50% discount.
Please bring: We recommend our guests to dress well with warm under layers of wool and a down jacket. We also recommend you to wear a hat, mittens, scarf and warm socks.
