Northern Lights Chase

Arctic Tromsø is the perfect place to chase your dream of seeing the magical Northern Lights.

This tour is conducted by Rødne Fjord Cruise.

Arctic Tromsø is the perfect place to chase your dream of seeing the magical Northern Lights. And our big, comfortable boat is the perfect viewing platform! Our spacious, luxurious, and environmentally friendly catamaran MS Rygerdronningen is also very fast. That means we can whisk you away from the city lights to ideal viewing conditions under the dark veil of polar night when the Aurora Borealis puts on its unforgettable light show in the heavens. Our expert guide will tell you all about this amazing natural phenomenon and even offer tips for photographing it.

Second chance guarantee! While our expert crews will do everything possible to find the Auroras, it is a natural phenomenon that we cannot guarantee. However, if you don’t experience the Northern Lights, we offer a free ticket to our next Northern Lights chase with us (subject to availability and this deal only applies the same season).
