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.

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.

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.
