Come with us for your Aurora hunt for an amazing experience underneath the Aurora Borealis. Tromsø is the best place to see the Northern Lights. Leave the light pollution in Tromsø behind and travel into the Arctic wilderness. During this activity, our small team of Aurora guides check the forecasts and use local knowledge to decide on the best place to chase the Northern Lights. When we find the best spot we will dress in warm thermal suits and boots, make a cosy campfire, and enjoy a homemade meal. During your Aurora Hunt activity you'll be shown how to use your camera, photograph the Aurora, and our guides will take photos of you, which are provided for free in web-sized resolution after the tour. Relax by the campfire with hot chocolate before being returned back to Tromsø island to your hotel. Increase your chances to see the Northern Lights by joining on multiple evenings.Season: 15th September - 15th April
