Full description
Join this night trip to the wilderness in northern Norway on a quest for the best spot to see the northern lights. Drive away from the light pollution in the city to different remote destinations, depending on the weather conditions. Your guide will decide the route based on the most up to date weather forecasts, sometimes driving all the way to the Finnish border. In the region there are many different microclimates, so it is possible to find clear skies even when it is cloudy in Tromsø. After you have met your guide, you will make a stop to dress up in thermal clothing. During this stop there will be a short introduction and time for you to set up your cameras and listen to some photography tips. Then you’ll start the hunt for the northern lights. Once your guide has found the best spot to enjoy the aurora borealis, you’ll stop and wait for the lights to appear. If the conditions allow it, you can make a bonfire to keep warm. Relax, enjoy a warm homemade meal, get to know your group, and photograph the amazing natural phenomenon of the northern lights. During the trip your guide will help you with your camera and will take additional photos, to share with you after the trip. At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at your hotel in Tromsø.

have spent one of the best night of my life at the pursuit of lights with Karolis and his crew far away in Finland.They had a Huuuuge scientific knowledge and they know how to explain very easily such complex phenomenon as Aurora Borealis. The Driver was an expert and the soup / hot drinks were just sooo delicious. I truuuly recommand them. Thank you again guys. To the reader of this review, please never forget that patience is a virtue, and the lights hunting require a lot of patience. Dorian A. From 5th October 2019 night hunt :)
