The Northern Lights are notoriously hard to predict, even in Tromso. So it makes sense to increase your chances of a sighting by joining a guided excursion, especially if you’re only in Tromso briefly. This tour delivers—a guide chooses a prime viewpoint according to the day’s weather and you'll enjoy soup beside a firelit camp as you watch. A drop-off back at your hotel afterward is included.

  • Hotel pickup

Begin your tour in central Tromso, setting off into the outlying fells by air-conditioned vehicle. Your tour may take you across the border into Finland if conditions require, so passports are required. On route, your guide uses local knowledge to select a good viewing point. Having chosen it, they'll set up camp and light a bonfire, so you can watch for the lights in the warmth and comfort.  Enjoy a homemade soup and scan the skies. You may need to wait for a brief sighting; or you may be lucky enough to witness an extended display. As you watch, hear background on this natural wonder from your guide. If you want to take photos, get advice from your guide on capturing the best shots. You’ll also receive souvenir photos after your tour to take home with you. Your outing finishes with a hotel drop-off back in Tromso.

Gordon took us to the perfect spot. It was up on a high hill overlooking the water and a small village. He was very knowledgeable about the northern lights, photography and the area. It was a magical and wonderful evening.

We had the most amazing night on this tour. Bart, Monica and Lucas were brilliant guides and we had lots of laughs. We were lucky to see the lights multiple times all while sitting around a campfire and eating great food as well. Highly recommend these guys and thanks again!

Bart, Ellie and their colleagues were so enthusiastic about the lights and knew where to take us for the best display we could have hoped for. We were helped to set up our cameras or you could your smartphone and get super shots.
We had soup and drinks around the campfire and Bart shared his knowledge about the Lights and answered our questions. It’s a late trip so don’t book if you fancy an early night!

It’s not a surprise everyone gives 5stars to this experience! The views are spectacular, the knowledge of the tour guides is amazing, we felt welcomed and it was a lovely friendly group chasing the magnificent arctic landscapes of Tromsø.
Out guide, Peter, was super fun and caring! We’ve had super delicious sandwiches and cookies, hot drinks and whatnot while enjoying the breathtaking views around us.
Totally recommended! That’s your kind of people in Tromsø!

On top of it, you get amazing pictures after the trip… I mean! 5 star’s experience!

We took the tour on nov 18th, group of 8 people and Ellie was our guide and driver, she was really entertaining, she explained us everything bout northern lights and then started to look for them, we were so lucky they appeared and stay with us all night long we stopped in two different places to take pictures and just aprecciate beautiful lights , it was an amazing experience.
So top service, amazing food and soup, hot chocolate cookies, also i just got the best pictures ever!!!
thank you Ellie for a memory of a lifetime!
Also what I liked is that the company is getting tourists involved in a program to take care of the enviroment.

It was such a chill and pleasant trip for my mum and me!

The sky was clear so we drove not too far from the city and got to a beautiful location (a beach on a fjord). We immediately saw the northern lights (and a wonderful Milky Way), and our guide Florian took some spectacular pictures before lighting up a fire and lending us some proper thermal suits against the cold. Then we had some tasty soup, a cookie, hot coffee, and hot chocolate.

Once we got back to Tromsø (around 00:30), the driver dropped us at home.

We really appreciated how they made it a comfortable trip for us yet with a reduced environmental impact, so we highly recommend this tour and company!
