Full description

Go on an adventurous search for the Northern Lights with an expert local guide who will find the best spot for viewing opportunities on the night of your outing. You will be picked up at the meeting point, and ride away from the pollution of the city lights and into the darkness of the fjords, forests, and mountains. Your guide will choose the best spot within a 350 km area to see the Northern Lights. While waiting to see if the lights appear, enjoy hot chocolate with cake or snacks for a warm and sweet start. Then, if the weather allows, sit by a bonfire and enjoy the Arctic beauty while roasting marshmallows. Your guide will share the facts, stories, traditions, beliefs, and superstitions about the lights as you warm by the fire.

When the Aurora Borealis does appear, your guide will take professional pictures and share them with you for free. They will also help you to get the best out of your cameras and even mobile phones. Every guest has a free Aurora portrait included in the tour. You have the option to take more pictures if you want as an additional service. Conclude your tour with a drop-off close to your hotel in the city center. If you are staying at a private accommodation outside of the city center, you can book the drop off at your address when you book your ticket.

You have to be lucky to see a lot of luck like us but if that's the case, the magic is there We had the pleasure for more than an hour of seeing a multitude of northern lights with a great guide who explained everything to us about the magic that was happening in front of us, concerning the photos with a good iPhone 11 Pro you take very beautiful photos and we give you at the end a link to retrieve those from your guide Cherry on the cake one hot chocolate with cinnamon cake then chamalos cooked in front of a very welcome brazier on these somewhat chilly polar nights….., Recommended +++. Worth the money if you have a dark, cloud-clear night with intense light activity…. Unforgettable experience

We were able to see a beautiful sky full of dancing lights! Our tour guide was awesome and we really enjoyed the experience. Please be aware that a tour like this requires a lot of patience and I would advise you to bring all portable charges, snacks, etc. to keep you full, warm and happy throughout the night. We learned a lot about the lights and would highly recommend this tour.

Due to the bad weather we were able to see very little of the aurora but I did several tours to see it during the week and this is certainly the best prepared team ever, professional, friendly, available to help you as much as possible. They took us to 3 different places, beautiful landscapes even without the aurora!
