/ Northern Lights Minibus Chase

Northern Lights Minibus Chase

Winter / September to 15 April

Join us on this trip to maximise your chances of witnessing Earth's most magnificent light show from outer space, the Aurora Borealis.

SHARE THIS

After picking you up outside your hotel, we will leave the city lights behind us and drive to where we expect the clearest weather conditions that night. On some nights this may lead us to the coast around Tromsø, on other nights we may drive all the way into Finland.

Once we’ve found clear sky, we will look for a scenic spot to set up our camp for the night. On some nights the Aurora appears right away, on other nights we have to be patient. Sometimes we see a faint greenish line across the horizon, sometimes it’s a bucket full of colors dancing in the sky. The Northern Lights appear on most nights, but they are not always strong, which is why we highly recommend joining several chases to increase your chances of seeing a good show.

We will take pictures of the Northern Lights and you and share them with you after the trip. If you decide to bring your own camera, we will also help you set it up and teach you all you need to know to take home great shots of the Aurora and the stunning landscape around us.

The weather in Tromsø doesn’t matter to us, as we usually find clear sky in the nearby micro climates, which makes Tromsø the perfect base to start our adventure.

This tour is specifically designed for those who are up for a real chase, which often involves traveling long distances and returning late. Our reward is an excellent success rate in finding clear sky and catching the Northern Lights.

Important Things to Note

  • Pictures often depict Northern Lights stronger than what we may see with our eyes

  • We make toilet stops if possible, but sometimes we have to use nature

  • It is possible to find clear sky even in seemingly challenging weather conditions

  • There are no refunds or free trip if we don’t see the Northern Lights

  • Regardless if the sky is clear or not, we may not see the Northern Lights

  • This is a real chase and may include long hours of driving

  • From late March onwards the chances of seeing the Northern Lights will be lower compared to the rest of the season, due to the long daylight hours. However, even in April we are successful on most chases.

  • You may be tired the next morning

*We try our best to have at least one toilet stop on our Northern Lights chases, but we cannot promise when this will happen since it really depends on where we go. Where we go depends on the weather conditions that day, and if we have to go somewhere where there are no toilets because the chances of seeing the Northern Lights are better there, then there’s also the possibility of not having a toilet stop.

TOP ACTIVITY IN TROMSØ, NORWAY

  • This was a very well thought and executed event. I thank to Marek and Sam for all their fine touches, about the location, the nature of lights, and personalised touches. It was simply wonderful!

  • I took this package as it includes everything plus phototaking too. If you don't have a good camera, want to enjoy and relax, let them take the photos for you. Small group size allows for more personal touch with the guide. The veg meal is delicious.

  • Great memories, did 5 days chasing the aurora and we only missed it one night. Very helpful and wonderful guides, knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. You should definetely try it and be prepared for the cold. But its so worth it!

  • Thomas and his team have been great hosts, making us feel good, asking questions about us, and taking care of us...and making great efforts to drive to Finland, to let the magic happen. What a great chase and a super organisation ! Deserves 5 stars !
