This season SamiCamp will offer a Northern Light chase- the sami way. Learn how to get a good photo of the "Dancing Lady" by our photographer, enjoy a hot meal served in our lavvo by the Sea and a "joik" to please the divine powers of the light.
Join us for the a Northern Lights chase experience in Tromsø. With our eco-friendly philosophy, delicious local food, knowledgeable guides and driver, we will take you on an Arctic journey that you will never forget. This trip also included visit to the Logje Sami Family. Learn how the sami traditionally interpretated the constellations on the night sky and stories about Guovssahasa /Northern Light.
Your Northern Light host will pick you up at Radisson Blu Hotel main entrance. The experience starts with visiting the Logje Sami family in their SamiCamp on Kvaløya, a 20 minutes drive from Tromsø. Storytelling about the Northern light and the sami people who have lived her in the arctic for generations will follow. The storytelling will take place in a real sami lavvo. You will also be served the traditional sami dinner, "Bidos".
Our guide will provide you with a brief, technical information, and some necessary knowledge about photographing the auroras.
Once your hosts have found a scenic spot, you will take off from the sami basecamp and hunt for the Northern Lights.
We search the polar sky for the Northern Lights and capture them in photos, and we offer photography tips and limited use of tripods.
If the dancing lady does not appear, or the weather conditions change, we may need to move on and continue the chase! We will return you to Tromsø at about 12am (00:00), depending on driving distance.
