Northern Lights Self Drive Package


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.

Book one of our Northern Lights Self Drive Packages this winter. We will support you with clothes, shoes, reindeer skin, where to drive for clear skies, and more.

Believe us, your clothes are not warm enough when only sitting still for hours, and sitting inside the car all night is not as pleasant as laying on a reindeer skin looking at shooting stars while waiting for the lights.

HALL OF FAME
97 % happy guests and more than 1500 excellent reviews! We are also included in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame - having been awarded Certificate of Excellence 6 years in a row.

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.

ECOTOURISM
We offer ecologically sustainable and responsible tours. Travelling in small groups is an essential part of the ecotourism concept, as small groups have lesser impact on nature and will not disturb the wildlife unnecessarily.

APPROVED BY...
Our tours are approved by the official Tromso tourist company, Visit Tromso, as well as the official travel company to Norway, Visit Norway. And don't forget to see what our visitors say about our trips!
