Northern Lights Trip – one-day chase


20 % OFF FOR BOOKINGS MADE IN AUGUST 2018. Discounted price is NOK 1,280 (around EUR 135)

Located in the middle of the northern lights belt, Tromso can offer some of the highest levels of northern lights activity on earth. Tromso city is situated among islands, breathtaking fjord landscapes and dramatic mountain peaks. Perhaps Tromso is the world's best place for a Northern Lights Trip – especially if you also enjoy city life.

Join one of our Northern Lights Trips this winter. It could become one of your greatest experiences. Chances to see the lights are of course better if you join for more days, but if time is limited, a one-day Northern Lights Trip might be just enough. You will take part in a search for Aurora Borealis through some of the most staggering landscapes in the Arctic.

HALL OF FAME
97 % happy guests and more than 1300 excellent reviews! We are also included in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame - having been awarded Certificate of Excellence 5 years in a row.

EXCITING CHASE
This is an intense and exciting chase – to the coast or deep into the wild, perhaps even to the Finnish border. We do all we can to crown your Northern Lights Trip with a sight to remember forever.

ALL INCLUSIVE
Included is most of what you need on a Northern Lights Trip. You can save a lot of money not buying expensive winter clothes, and more you don't need back home.
