What to expect

Join this small group Northern Lights chase to maximise your chances of witnessing Earth's most magnificent light show from outer space, the Aurora Borealis. We are experts at finding clear sky and the Aurora even in the most challenging weather conditions with year in and year out a success rate of well over 90%!

The Aurora is always different however, which is why we believe joining two or more chases increases your chances of enjoying a particularly beautiful display. Northern Lights sightings cannot be guaranteed, but with the help of our expert guides and photographers, you will take home a memorable experience regardless. This all-inclusive tour will leave nothing to be desired. Everything from Snowsuit & boots, a warm dinner and professional pictures of you and your family are included. After picking you up at our shop, we will leave the city lights behind us and drive to where we expect the clearest weather conditions that night. On some nights this may lead us to the coast around Tromsø, on other nights we may drive all the way into Finland. Once we’ve found the clear sky, we will look for a scenic spot to set up our camp for the night.

Sometimes we see a faint greenish line across the horizon, sometimes it’s a bucket full of colors dancing in the sky. The Northern Lights appear on most nights, but they are not always strong, which is why we highly recommend joining several chases to increase your chances of seeing a good show. We will take pictures of the Northern Lights and you and share them with you after the trip. If you decide to bring your own camera, we will also help you set it up and teach you all you need to know to take home great shots of the Aurora and the stunning landscape around us.

This tour is specifically designed for those who are up for a real chase, which often involves traveling long distances and returning late. Our reward is an excellent success rate in finding a clear sky and catching the Northern Lights.
