Northern lights photography tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Starting from the Tromso city center, travel through the Fjordlands, Laplands or the outer islands of Troms in search of the Northern Lights. Weather permitting, make a fire and take portraits under the spectacular lights.

    Lasting anywhere from 5 to 9 hours, the tour stops along the way to get a view of the fjords and the landscapes that were formed by glaciers over the past 1,000 years. Once a place is found, stop to watch the lights and enjoy some snacks and hot chocolate. Put on the snow suits provided if you get cold.

    With a focus on photographing the natural wonder, your tour guide can help set up most cameras. The guide also brings their own camera equipment to make sure the beauty and magic of the night is captured.

    After a few days of quite heavy snow in Tromsø we were not too optimistic about seeing the northern lights during our stay. Our tour guide Jess picked us up (group of 7) just after dark and drove us to the Summer Islands. First thing to note was that even in heavy snow, on

    This tour was very familiar and it has the right amount of participants that a tour like this should have. The guide Jess was amazing and brought us to a beautiful place to see the northern lights. It was an amazing night and I really enjoyed everything!

    The price was fair enought for seeing such a spectacular show at the sky! The night trip was perfect. The guide Jess was kind, obliging, funny and knows a lot about people, country and the northern lights. Also I think the group dynamic was perfect and we had an awesome night.
