This northern lights chase starts with a hotel pickup in Tromso. Your group is limited to 16 people, so you can thoroughly enjoy your experience.

Head out to the Norwegian countryside with a guide. You don’t have to worry about getting lost at night because your guide knows the region well. You can also borrow snow overalls to put on to keep you warm.

As you ride, your guide relays fun folklore and facts about the northern lights. When you find the lights, your guide will help you set up your own camera to take the best photos. Also pose for a picture taken by your guide that you can download after your trip.

If your travels take you in the direction of a Sami camp, you’ll stop and spend time by a bonfire sipping hot drinks to warm up.

Your northern lights tour ends with a drop-off in Tromso.

Couldn’t recommend more highly

Lights poor = lots of sitting

The lights were just not cooperating the night we went. Thus, there was a whole lot of sitting around inside a wooden hut. The guides didn't provide any stories, information, or fun facts, so the group of 10-12 people sat around staring at each other,...More
