Fire & Ice with the Northern Lights
Season: November 2019– April 2020
Day 1 TROMSØ
Arrive Tromsø – The Arctic North!
Pick up luggage and meet with taxi driver that will take you to the city and your hotel. Look for driver that is holding a sign with your name on it: “---”.
Check in for overnight and breakfast at Scandic Ishavshotell or similar.
“Active under the Northern Lights”; Tromsø is right in the middle of the planet’s Northern lights belt, and any flare of solar storms on the surface of the sun will be spotted here! Evening activities help you to be outside when the Aurora Borealis light up the night sky! Daytime excursions are good for enjoying the breath-taking landscapes!
18.45 Go hunting for the beautiful Northern Lights.
The Northern Lights chase is an excursion with the main purpose of watching the Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis. We start from your hotel and start the chasing by minibus. We try to find stable dry weather with clear sky. The patient Aurora watcher will have excellent chances of spotting the light as we go to an uninhabited area where no artificial light will disturb your experience or your attempt to capture the Aurora Borealis on photo. The guide will focus on sharing tips and techniques on how to photograph the lights; we also bring extra tripods with us. During the tour you will be served a hot meal and enjoy the magic by the open fire.
Remember to bring your camera!
Duration: 5-7 hours.
