Full description

Join this expert-led, small-group excursion to see nature's finest light show. Take part in a chase where the destination changes depending on the best chance of seeing the lights.

Sometimes the drive will be out to the coast, sometimes inland, and other times past three fjords up to the Finnish border. The final decision is left as late as possible to maximize your chance of seeing the majestic lights dancing in the sky. Hop in the van and meet your group and expert guide. After finding the perfect spot, settle in and wait for the brilliant colors of the Northern Lights to appear. Your guide will help you adjust your camera so you can take the best photos of them. Enjoy some hot drinks and biscuits while keeping an eye on the sky. Enjoy an exclusive chase with a maximum group size of 16 guests. Your guide will be happy to answer all your questions and will take high-resolution photos to share with the group after the tour.

    Magne was our driver/guide/photographer!! He was so careful with all 16 of us… from being safe, warm, happy, comfortable and made sure that each one of us had hot chocolate and gingerbread biscuits; not only to mention that we also had amazing pictures from our VERY SHY friend, Aurora! He was able to chase it and find not only one, but two good spots, so we could see it a bit! The trip was great and we loved Magne and his sense of humor! Definitely recommend!!!

    Just 16 of us in a very comfortable minibus, with Magne, our host, guide and driver. Despite a modest Northern Lights forecast, he found us a good display not too far from Tromsø, and after a short wait, were saw them! Plus a lot of superb photos available to download afterwards. Magne was informative, entertaining and inspired complete confidence. Highly recommended

    I chose this tour as it was a smaller group and not a large tour bus. The guide (Stefan) was super dedicated. Unfortunately, the weather was very overcast, so we had to drive across the border to Finland and were repeatedly followed by quickly closing cloud cover. He kept stopping briefly to look for gaps in the clouds. If it looked promising we would hop off and stop there for a short while. We were then rewarded with some beautiful Northern Lights. At every stop there is the possibility to have photos taken with your camera, which can then be retrieved super quickly in a drop box. You could tell that he really had the hunting fever and was always on the lookout for gaps in the clouds. Thank you for this commitment and this passion. There was a scheduled toilet stop and we were out for about 7 hours. So empty your bladder first. Definitely to recommend
