Overview

Set out from Tromso on a hunting tour of the Northern Lights. Join a small group and a guide in a fun quest to 'chase down' the Aurora Borealis, traversing the nearby countryside and even into Finland to catch a glimpse. After finding the right setting, gather around a campfire, warm up with some soup, and await the spectacular night light show. Your guide will also offer some tips for best capturing the Northern Lights in pics, and snap some that they'll share as souvenirs.

  • 7-hour excursion to see the Northern Lights from Tromso
  • Enjoy a spectacular night light show in the countryside with your guide and small group
  • Sit around a bonfire and enjoy homemade soup
  • Dinner included
After pickup in central Tromsø, travel with your guide into the surrounding countryside, potentially crossing into Finland if conditions demand. Please bring your passport to cover for this possibility.

Your guide will use their knowledge of the weather and the Northern Lights to decide on a viewpoint and, on arrival, will set up camp and light a bonfire. Settle by the fire to observe the skies and enjoy homemade soup to stay warm.

Sometimes you’ll need to wait to see the lights, while on other occasions, you may be treated to an extended show. As you watch, wait, and take in the lights, learn about the science behind them from your guide.

Keep your camera ready for pictures, and get tips on how to capture great photos. You’ll also receive souvenir photos by email after your tour.

When the time comes, your tour concludes with a hotel drop-off in Tromso.

very enjoyable and the food was good, location was stunning, could have done with a bit more guidance on the settings for capturing the northern lights with a dslr.

The weather in Tromso on the night of our tour was cloudy and snowing and we had very small chance of seeing the northern lights. However, the guide and driver, Bart and Vitek, were very patient in finding the right place to view and went the extra mile to drive us to the border of Finland, Sweden and Norway. We saw the amazing northern lights dancing in the sky.

The northern lights hunt tour with wandering owl group was excellent! The conditions the night we went out didn't look promising however our guide, Jeff was optimistic and extremely knowledgeable. He ended up driving us into Finland where we set up our camp site and fire and got to enjoy the amazingness of the lights with delicious soup, hot chocolate and cookies.

Had a great night with the campfire, soup and hot drink. I wish i had known beforehand that the human eye doesn't really see those bright colours and instead the camera picks that up. Otherwise still a great tour. Research the lights before hand and know what to expect realistically is my tip

This was the absolute highlight of the trip. Pablo was our guide and he visited several locations which were too overcast before we came to a frozen beach beside a lake. All necessary clothing was provided and you definitely need to be wrapped up. The sky was so clear you could see stars everywhere. We had a wonderful soup, then some biscuits and hot chocolate and then after waiting for a few hours the so-called tricky lady appeared in all her glory. Photographs can't do it justice, when the curtain of light falls in strips and then dances in front of you then the camera lens fails totally to capture the extraordinary beauty - you have to see them for yourself. If you absolutely must have to see them as part of your holiday then this is an ideal trip to book.

My husband and I did this through Wondering Owl and we loved the entire experience! We were able to see the Northern lights on multiple stops and our guide was amazing at explaining how to get our camera to capture them as well as why the Northern lights happen. I would recommend this tour to everyone wanting a fun and educating experience.
