This tour is conducted by Pukka Travels. Our Northern Lights Sailing Experience is a 3 hour excursion that gives you the opportunity to see two arctic phenomenons, sailing through the arctic fjords, while having the chance to see the Northern Lights.
Witnessing the Northern Lights from the sea is a magical moment you will never forget. We have made it our mission to go the extra mile and bring this Northern Lights Sailing experience to you with the utmost detail and passion. For this private tour we can host up to 12 guests.
We are very passionate about The Northern Lights and will do everything we can do to provide you with the most memorable experience while waiting for the sky to start dancing in the sky above you. There are many ways to enjoy nature’s best light show, but our favorite is to combine it with a warm, comfortable cruise through the fjords surrounding Tromsø.
Why watch the northern lights by boat instead of car you may ask? Sailing through the fjords in the polar night is a very unique and different experience than driving to a certain spot in a car or bus. We are able to keep moving with the lights, while being able to go inside to grab a fresh coffee, stay warm and enjoy the lights on the net of a spacious catamaran.
Our skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area we have found the best spots in which we will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.
