This is our newest tour, guided by the same expert tour guides as our small group chase, giving you an excellent chance of the Aurora.

After the tour starts from Tromsø's city center, we will drive to where we expect the best weather conditions that night. On the journey there you will learn about the Northern Lights and how to photograph them. We will be happy to answer all questions you might have.

Once we've found clear sky, we will stop and help you set up your cameras. If conditions allow, we will choose a scenic locations with a beautiful foreground. We will take portraits of the Northern Lights and you to share them after the trip.

We provide hot drinks as well as hot water that you can use to prepare your own meal. The bus is heated, so you can always warm up inside.

If you’re looking for a comfortable and affordable chase to maximize your chances of witnessing the beautiful Northern Lights, then this is the tour for you!

Important Things to Note

Frequently Asked Questions

general northern lights chase northern lights

  1. The lights are not going to get dimmer, but articles that claim they do make a good click bait.

    We recommend reading the following article: http://www.visittromso.no/en/northernlights_forever

    The chances are the same between mid September and end March. What is more important and has a bigger impact on your chances of seeing the Northern Lights is how long you are staying in Tromsø and how many chases you go out on.

    Seeing the Northern Lights can also be anything between a faint whitish glow in the sky to a green dancing show, that's something that is hard to say even if we have completely clear skies, which is another reason why we recommend at least 2 or 3 Northern Lights chases.

    You may find out more about our success rate for seeing the Northern Lights by following us on our Facebook page where we post the result of every single chase we take.

  2. It is possible for you to participate in a day trip and a Northern Lights chase in the same day, and many guests do this too. However, we wouldn't recommend participating in 2 trips in a day for consecutive days as it will be quite exhausting for you.

  3. We don’t cancel trips because of bad weather. We have found clear sky on 95% of all trips last season, even though the weather forecast predicted low chances on a majority of nights. We have also had no other reasons to cancel tours, however, if tours have to be cancelled, for example because of road closures, a full refund will be provided.

  4. Northern Lights chase (Small group):
    Tours taken in a comfortable 17-seater Mercedes Benz Sprinter that comes with an isle in the middle. We take a maximum of 13 guest for each trip and each group has a tour guide, and a designated driver. These cars provide comfort even during long chases to Finland or Sweden and allow everyone to use it for getting dressed or to rest. By using minibuses we are most flexible and the small group size guarantees a personal experience.

    Northern Lights chase (Big group):
    Tours taken in a comfortable 45-seater bus, and we take a maximum of 40 guests for each trip. Each group has 1-2 tour guides, and a designated driver.
