What to expect

Maximize your chances of seeing the Northern Lights in this comfortable minibus chase which will take you to the best spots where you can watch the Aurora dance in the sky.

After departing from basecamp, you will set out into the polar night and away from light pollution to find clear skies. You will be accompanied by a knowledgable guide who carefully analyzes the weather conditions before and during the tour, and keeps in touch with other guides in the area to monitor cloud movements.

Once you find the best spot for the evening, your guide will help you set up your camera as you wait for the lights to appear. They will also take professional photographs, which will be shared within 3 days of your tour.

Tripods are available for complementary use and you will be provided with thermal suits and warm boots so you can feel comfortable and warm throughout the evening. A bonfire will also be lit up later in the evening and you will be able to enjoy a warm meal and hot drinks by the fire.
