Northern Light Photo Cruise

Get your tickets here

On a clear night in Tromsø city, you don't need to travel far to observe the Northern Lights. Joining an evening cruise is undoubtedly the most comfortable way. Our crew will be navigating to the stellar sky above the fjords of Tromsø island.

Our boats lay right by the quayside of Kystens Hus in Tromsø center. Our crew will welcome you aboard for our Northern Lights Photo Cruise. As soon as we set the course, our guide will show you the amenities of the ship, the deck and indoor space, lavatories, safety equipment, refreshments and will invite you to listen to Northern Lights stories in the lounge. You may also enjoy the freedom to roam around the spacious outdoor deck or unwind indoors with a cup of coffee or tea.

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 in this comfortable setting for observing them. The course we set will depend on the weather forecast, and the cloud-free sky will define if you are going to see the Northern Lights. Once the conditions are right, the captain will slow down the boat letting it slowly drift along with the current. The guide will help you set up your camera, and when the Northern Lights start to dance, he will offer to take photos for you.

Note: If you don't see Northern Lights on your tour, you can book a second tour for free. (Subject to availability on the next tour).
