For this tour you will be picked up from our meeting point in the city center of Tromsø, from where we set off by bus to chase the northern lights. Along the way we will search for locations with low light pollution, minimal cloud coverage and scenic backdrop to make some photo stops.
Which one of our camps we go to will depend on the latest aurora and weather forecast, decided upon by our guides prior to (sometimes during) the tour. All of our camps have cabins or comfortable lavvus (Sami tents), while toilet facilities are located on the bus.
At the camp, we will serve a warm stew and enjoy a warm beverage around the fire as we wait for the northern lights to occur.
If you are lucky and the northern lights start flickering above in the sky, the guide will assist you when making your own photos and will take some portrait photos which will be send to you after the tour.
Of course we can’t offer any guarantees since the northern lights are a natural phenomenon, but we promise to use all our experience to maximise our chances of a successful chase
