Itinerary Details

This is a small-group, outdoor tour tailored especially to explore the Arctic nature while you are hunting for the Northern Lights. The main purpose is to give you the best chance of seeing the Aurora Borealis by traveling away from city light pollution. Position yourselves under cloud free skies to experience the wild Arctic nature. You will be picked up by your local guides in the city center and start the tour by heading towards beautiful mountains, fjords, and valleys.

There will be many stops on the way to take photos of the unique nature (lit by moonlight at the right times of the month) and search for the lights. Where your tour goes depends on the weather conditions, sometimes this is as far as to the Finnish and Swedish border to find the right conditions for the lights. Travel in small groups to create a special, cozy atmosphere. This...

Extremely well organized tour, with a most knowledgeable guide, Philippe. We were well taken care of throughout the evening during our quest; provided with information, food, camera assistance, and gorgeous pictures afterwards. Dress warmly!

Terrible experience with this tour. The worst part of our trip. The all idea about this trip to Tromso started from the desire to see the northern lights. However, not only we did not see them with our eyes (some green in the picture was all), but we spent the time waiting for it in a very disorganized way. Hours spent in the van, changing places are expected, but spending the evening in the cold just hanging around without any group set up, no explanation from the guide (Simon) whatsoever was very disappointed. I have heard that the company Chasing northern lights gives a much better experience.

Experience was very good overall - we booked two nights with Polar Adventures and both guides were very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. However, I don’t like that all the pictures they send have a huge logo on top. I understand why they do that, but it makes the pictures much less enjoyable. Other than that, great experience.

We were told the likelihood of seeing the lights was low - 6 hours on a minibus -the tour should have been cancelled
My advice check the weather before you book as this was an expensive non eventful trip
