/ Northern Lights Minibus Chase

Northern Lights Minibus Chase

September to Early April

Tromsø Night Tour Small Group Chase

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 meeting you in the centre of Tromsø, we will leave the city lights behind us and drive to where we expect the evening’s best weather conditions. On some nights this may lead us to the coast around Tromsø, on other nights we may drive all the way into Finland.

If conditions allow, we will choose a scenic spot and light a campfire. 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 recommend joining several chases to increase your chances of seeing a good show.

We will take pictures throughout the trip and share them with you the next morning. 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.

Cloudy skies in Tromsø don’t scare us, as we usually find clear sky in nearby micro climates, which makes Tromsø the perfect base to start our adventure. As such, this tour goes ahead regardless of the weather, as long as road conditions are safe. Our experience shows us that the most challenging nights often offer the best shows.

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

About this tour

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. As long as road conditions are safe, the chase will go ahead

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

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 !
