Northern Lights
big bus chase


Join us on this exciting trip to chase the magnificent Northern Lights. We conduct this tour in a spacious and modern bus which provides comfort and warmth along our journey through the Arctic regions.


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:

    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. We do go to Finland or Sweden if the conditions are better there. Within the Schengen area, it is not necessary to clear formalities when crossing borders as the Schengen agreement allows us to cross borders within Europe without a passport. However, we would still encourage bringing along your passports on the chases as the border control in Finland may on very rare occasions request to check our passports and it would be safer simply to bring it along.

  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. I’m afraid there are no ice hotels or igloos in or around Tromsø. For our packages, we work with hotels located in the city center.
