6 hrs

Come with us for your Private Aurora hunt to have an amazing experience underneath the Aurora Borealis. Senja is a great place to see the Northern Lights. Leave the villages 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 Private 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 your Airbnb or hotel in south Senja. Increase your chances to see the Northern Lights by joining on multiple evenings.

Please be aware of the following before your tour with us:
- We can only see the detailed forecast 30 hrs in advance, we would only consider it to be trustworthy 12hrs in advance. It is updated about every 4 hrs and changes often.
- The environmental conditions in Tromsø do not reflect the other many other region microclimates
- Even on the cloudiest nights, we have seen Northern Lights. For this reason, we only cancel if it is forecasted to be unsafe for driving.
- The Northern Lights are phenomena, we can not guarantee them. No refunds, free tours, or discounts are on offer if you do not see them or are disappointed by them.
- They are different every night.
- Tromsø/Senja is 70 degrees north, this means that the KP index does not really apply. We can see the activity even on nights when it is less than a KP1. 
- We are looking for gaps in the middle-level clouds to see the activity.
- The activity occurs 80km+ above the biosphere, which means if there are gaps in the clouds, it is dark enough and there is activity, we will see it all across the entire region.
- Please travel with travel insurance. The environmental conditions in the Arctic can be wild and ever-changing, flights are often canceled or delayed. To avoid financial losses and disappointment please have insurance and plan your travel wisely.
