Full description
Drive along beautiful fjords, mountains and lakes on an exciting chase for the elusive Northern Lights. Enjoy having your private minivan just for you and your partner, family, or friends. Learn how to take pictures of the Aurora, and (weather and energy permitting), capture the magic Aurora in photographs. You'll be picked up from your accommodation in Tromsø and set out for a 6-hour excursion in search of this beautiful natural phenomenon. One night, this might take you to the Finnish border while another evening the forecast will show clear skies on the Fjords at the west of Tromsø—you'll be taken where the chances for clear skies are highest. Around Tromsø at 69.43 degrees latitude North, if you can see stars in the sky, you can see the Northern Lights. Once your driver takes you to clear skies, it's just about patiently waiting with some tea, coffee, and muffins until a quiet Aurora, a strong Aurora, or a super strong Aurora strikes. Your instructor will show you how to best capture it so that you can take the memory of this amazing sight home with you.

Francisco created an unforgettable evening for us. As we were traveling with our daughter we treated ourselves to the luxury of a private tour. It was exactly the right decision. In retrospect, we were convinced that this would have been the right decision if we hadn't had children. We learned a lot about the Aurora, Norway and photography. We were 100 percent independent of others and were free to decide the evening. Thank you for the great experience!

Fantastic experience start to finish. We did a private tour for the 6 of us - friends celebrating a birthday. Francisco was very prompt and thorough explaining the probability of seeing the lights based on the weather - and explaining the science behind it. Jose was our guide and very smart, helpful and outgoing. They provided us with warm suits on top of our clothes; and tea, coffee and muffins as snacks. They had music playing under the lights and took a lot of professional photos for us. We were able to see the lights and get some great photos, laying in the snow taking it all in. We also went to a second spot for a better chance to see them a bit stronger. Jose was very open to our preferences and accommodating. I highly recommend booking this tour!

We saw amazing northern lights. That's the most important! The tour guide Francesco was not at all interested in his guests, total disinterest and didn't respond to us at all. Note on snacks, there are no, there was coffee. Received great photos. Reference to snowsuit sale is missing in the ad.
