What You Can Expect

Small-Group Aurora Hunt Northern Lights Tour from Tromso

Northern lights portrait.

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.

The day we took this tour proved not to be a night for aurora siting as it was snowing and cloud cover thick. Alex did his best and we drove north and south in search for the lights but sometimes it just doesn't happen with no fault of the guide. A lovely evening of fire and soup was eventually set up and we arrived back at the hotel at 1 am. Fortunately we had seen the lights 4 previous evenings and we were not disappointed with this evening despite the lights not being able to be seen.

Our guide Mixu was fantastic. He's incredibly knowledgeable about the lights and picks a location based on the weather and aurora forecast. He also frequently checks for updates. He not only helped us with our camera settings, but took lovely photos of us that we were emailed the next day. They provided head lamps, cold weather gear and also a warm meal. The homemade reindeer soup, bread, cookies and hot chocolate were all delicious. It was nice to have something warm while we were out in the cold. It was a small group, which was really nice too. He also dropped us off right at our hotel after the tour.

Seriously... there are so many similar tours that you could do... but trust me... do THIS one with Wandering Owl. I travel a lot, and this was one of the best nights of my entire life.

Highly recommend this tour, guide was friendly and he took us to the best spot. Northern lights were amazing but only for short period of time. Still worth the money you. Hot Chocolate was amazing and one of the best we ever had.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2017

The tour was everything it was described as being. Our guide and our driver were experienced, knowledgable, enthusiastic, and a wealth of information. Yes, it was cold but the excitement of the hunt, the viewing of the lights, which were spectacular, and the camaraderie made the cold more than bearable. I hope to experience the lights again, and if I do, this will be my tour.
