Small-Group Aurora Hunt Northern Lights Tour from Tromso

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.

We were entertained and educated as we drove through the dark wilderness, excitedly waiting to arrive at our destination. Gordon was our photographer and guide, and Michael was our driver. Both were clearly very knowledgeable, passionate, and wanted everyone to have an amazing experience. We stopped at one incredible location, and enjoyed amazing hot chocolate and food. Then, even though we had already had an amazing experience, they went out of their way to find another beautiful location on the way back. Two sensational displays of the Aurora, which we will always remember. Can't thank Wandering Owl enough!

Our tour guide Ellie was very personable and knowledgeable, making the tour a very nice experience for both me and my 10-year old son. She made a lot of effort to ensure we were enjoying the tour, was very informative (including various facts whilst we did some great star watching) and tried everything possible to make sure we had the best chance of seeing the aurora in very changeable weather conditions. In the end we saw the lights and got an excellent display captured in some very memorable photos to round off what was a fantastic tour. Highly reccommend!

During my solo trip in northern Norway, I was hoping to see some northern lights. I booked this tour with Wandering Owl. It was an amazing experience and evening. Our guide Ellie was welcoming and friendly, the whole evening was perfect and cozy. The northern lights finally showed up, it was an unforgettable moment I had the chance to experience. Now, I want to come back and definitely will :)

Ellie was a great guide who not only has fantastic knowledge of the aurora, but also makes the best hot chocolate in Tromso! A good night out even though the green lady wasn't dancing particularly brightly.

We had the most beautiful night (the last one of our three nights in Tromso). Luckily the skies were crystal clear for miles, so our guide Ellie chose a particularly breathtaking spot, the fiord at Tromvik. The lights were stunning. When the aurora moved it looked like someone was painting on the sky with vertical brush strokes. :) Ellie was very passionate and happy to share her knowledge about the aurora and northern Norway, and the homemade soup and hot chocolate were delicious. Being supplied with warm shoes and thermo suits helped to keep warm. I am so thankful for the experience. :)

We are thrilled to hear you had such an amazing experience with Ellie and Wandering Owl! Aurora borealis show is something everyone should experience at least once, it's amazing to hear that the nature delivered during your stay in the arctic and you could admire the show. We hope to see you in Tromso again! Thank you for choosing to explore with Wandering Owl.
