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 an amazing guide, a must do trip if you want to try and see the Northern Lights . Nothing was too much trouble, very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about his job. Took us to a few different spots and was lucky enough to see them at each , last stop they came out strong and was an amazing once in a lifetime experience.

    What a spectacular trip! The weather in Tromso was horrendous but that didn’t stop Magne taking us out. We ventured out of town, heading towards the Finnish border. Just shy of the border Magne stopped the minibus and we all hopped out. Suddenly the sky erupted, it was incredible! Magne took loads of photos which he will send through so even if you don’t have the best camera, you can still take memories home from the trip! They’re all free too!! I couldn’t recommend more. Magne was a fantastic guide, so friendly and knew where to head. He was in communication with other guides which landed us the best chance of seeing the lights. Magne also gave us a bit of history en route and was incredibly passionate about getting people to see the lights. Although seeing the lights is not a given, the expertise gave us the best chance! Could not recommend more.

    Our guide and driver Stefan was great. He made sure everyone of us is comfortable during the wait for aurora. Though sadly, the weather was not on our side that night, he made efforts to search for a clear-ish sky and kept us up to date with news from other people who were out that night hunting. Even during the travel back to Tromso, he still tried to find a clear sky when he passes spots with no snowfall but we weren’t just lucky that night.
