Small-Group Aurora Hunt Northern Lights Tour from Tromso
US$ 205.21
The Northern Lights are notoriously hard to predict, even in Tromso. So it makes sense to increase your chances of a sighting by joining a guided excursion, especially if you’re only in Tromso briefly. This tour delivers—a guide chooses a prime viewpoint according to the day’s weather and you'll enjoy soup beside a firelit camp as you watch. A drop-off back at your hotel afterward is included.
What to Expect
Begin your tour in central Tromso, setting off into the outlying fells by air-conditioned vehicle. Your tour may take you across the border into Finland if conditions require, so passports are required.

On route, your guide uses local knowledge to select a good viewing point. Having chosen it, they'll set up camp and light a bonfire, so you can watch for the lights in the warmth and comfort. 

Enjoy a homemade soup and scan the skies. You may need to wait for a brief sighting; or you may be lucky enough to witness an extended display. As you watch, hear background on this natural wonder from your guide.

If you want to take photos, get advice from your guide on capturing the best shots. You’ll also receive souvenir photos after your tour to take home with you.

Your outing finishes with a hotel drop-off back in Tromso.

Thank you S for your beautiful review! And for contributing to the aurora-high mood that night, as we searched for a clear sky and later improvised a hike through that magical pine tree forest, among other things. Night is a universe on its own, don't...More
