About
Join us on this small group Northern Lights chase to maximise your chances of witnessing Earth's most magnificent light show from outer space, the Aurora Borealis. We are experts at finding clear sky even in the most challenging weather conditions: In the winter season of 2016/2017 we found clear sky on 97% of all chases and saw Northern Lights on 94% of all chases. The Aurora is always different, which is why we recommend booking two or more chases to increase your chances of enjoying a particular beautiful display. Portraits of you to send to your family & friends are always included on our tours. This is an all-inclusive tour without hidden charges. Northern Lights sightings cannot be guaranteed, but with the help of our expert guides and photographers you will always take home a memorable experience.

Great experience
Oct. 2021
Marius was a very passionate tour guide and was clear with us from the start about the possibilities/challenges we would encounter, but always positive. he had many stories for us along the way and gave us a very good explanation about the science behind the northern lights. He was very knowledgeable about the area and where out best chance was. When we did encounter the lights he was very good at taking our picture and giving us ideas for poses. Thomas was always there for supporting us if we needed help with the practical aspects of the tour and got us safely to our destination and back home again.

Perfect Night!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
The tour was amazing! We not only got an incredible view of the northern lights (they even danced and got a bit of a pink hue to them for a bit!), but we also had a great time thanks to Marius and Thomas who made sure everything was perfect. We enjoyed an amazing starry night, sitting around a fire, having great conversation and sipping hot chocolate, and had some great food. The setting was amazing and the team was super attentive, going above and beyond to make our night a memorable one. One of my favorite things about the night, was the way Marius explained the scientific and cultural history behind the northern lights. It was very informative and interesting to understand what we were seeing while experiencing the feeling of complete amazement at the beauty of the lights.

Incredible experience
Dec. 2020
We had simply the best Christmas Eve of 2020 with Chasing Lights! The team picked us up from our hotels. We were a good group of 15 people. Oh wait, we had Birtna, as well :)! A cute little dog, very curious and quite an explorer :P!
Thomas, Heleen and Veronica were our guides for the night. They were very organized, warm and kind people. Heleen told us all about the Northern lights. She was lively and especially very patient (as she took like a million portraits of us with the magical lights :D ).
Thomas drove us to Laksvatn, about an hour away from the Tromso city center. We were lucky to have picked that day! The sky was so clear, full of stars, and the moonlight was just amazing! We got off at our first spot, and immediately there it was, a faint arc across the sky! At first, I found it difficult to spot it...but it grew stronger as we got busy getting our pictures :)! Besides, the team made camp fire, gave us hot chocolate drinks and cookies that kept us warm and excited out in the cold :)!
After spending quality time on the first spot, we drove to the second, approx. 15 minutes drive from the previous one. And this was my favorite spot for the night! A small beach beside a beautiful moonlit fjord with snow covered mountains in the background! The Northern Lights got even stronger here and we took amazing pictures! The guys lit bonfire again, and we got creamy codfish for dinner while enjoying the beautiful "lights show" in the sky :)! We also stopped on our way back to our hotels, the lights wouldn't just let us go :P!
This was my first experience with Northern Lights and it was incredible!!!
Thank you Chasing Lights for the amazing experience! You guys are my rockstar :)!

Had a great and cosy Christmas Eve, with northern lights dancing in the closed proximity of our campfire. Thanks to the chasing lights team: Thomas, Heleen, Veronica & Birtna, for keeping us warm and, of course, for the hot chocolate drinks and creamy codfish dinner.

Two nights of Northern Lights!
Dec. 2019
The aurora appeared for us—praise the Lord!!! She came out dancing as we made our first stop of the chase in Signaldalen, about 2 hours outside the city. Quite a spectacle! We shared stories around the camp fire over hot cocoa and beef stew then listened to a fascinating lecture on the northern lights phenomenon from our physicist tour guide. What a magical experience with my Mom! Loved the tour guides! Excellent and hard working, funny and friendly. Paid lots of attention to all the tourists (we joined the smaller bus) and took great pictures of us!

Great focus on customer experience
We went on a mini bus tour at the end of February. The entire tour was very well organized and Our guide (Sameer) did everything he could to make it a memorable experience. He took us in different locations and was really entertaining. We were lucky enough to also see the Northern Lights even though it was moderately strong. The dinner and the hot chocolate were just perfect.

Excellent experience
Feb. 2020
We went on two of these trips during our stay and had two totally different experiences. The guides were great and went to a lot of effort to make sure you had the best experience possible. The first trip we ended up in Finland which was a LONG drive! We did manage to see a small amount of Northern Lights activity and was a great experience. The second trip was much closer to home with just over an hour's drive and managed to see the Lights again over a lake which produced some great pictures. The minibuses are very comfortable, which you need them to be as you can end up spending a long time in them.
Warm suits and boots are provided as it can get very cold. It was -20 on our first trip! The guides light a camp fire and everyone sits around and had a very tasty dinner, toasted marshmallows and drunk hot chocolate. I would highly recommend this trip but be prepared for it to be a long night and to get very cold! My only negative comment is I would liked to have got more of the guides photos - on both trips they took far more than they uploaded for us to keep.

Worth every penny!! Drove all the way to Finland and was able to see the northern light and galaxy. What an unforgettable night!! Our guide, Elisa is the best and very knowledgeable about the northern light. She knows exactly where to find northern light even though the weather is bad. You can't go wrong with Chasing Lights!!

Best night ever!
This was my all time dream and became true with extra surprises 😍🌌 Always believe in luck but if you really want to see the northern lights you should join this tour! Your chance to catch them would considerably increase.
Huge thanks to our great guide/photographer Oli and dear pathfinder Stefan for this amazing night. I’ll always remember this leap day with gratitude and joy.
