Hunting the Northern Lights by Bus

We will pick you up from Kirkenes (or the Snowhotel), to search for the Northern Lights.

You will be driven far away from the light pollution, east towards the Russian border, west towards Finland, or south into the Pasvik valley, depending on the weather forecast that night.

In addition to the chance of spotting the Northern Lights, the tour offers an excellent opportunity for sightseeing in the area and admiring the arctic landscape. Your knowledgeable guide will tell teach about the Northern Lights, as well as about the local area, places and people. Hot juice and biscuits will be served enroute.

If our guide takes any photos of Aurora during the trip, you will have the chance to receive them by email soon after the tour.
