Overview

We are family run business situated in Karlsoey municipality, just a short drive outside the Tromsoe. We have our own Aurora base camp on the shore of frozen lake of Skogsfjordvannet, where we take our guests for the aurora hunt! Depending on the weather, sometimes we must chase Northern Lights further in the mainland Norway or even into Finland. We try our best so you get to see the Northern Lights, which in some cases can result in a longer tour. We provide snacks or a warm meal. Our tours start by guest pick-up at the Tourist Information Office in Tromsoe at Kirkegata 2. After the tour is finished, we make sure our guests get safely back to their respectful hotels in Tromsoe (and outside the city).
