Activity

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 Tromso 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 a hot chocolate before being returned back to Tromso island to your hotel. Increase your chances to see the Northern Lights by joining on multiple evenings.

Additional Safety Considerations relevant for winter season 2020/21:
Wandering Owl has a duty of care to protect the health and safety of our team, our guests and to do our part are responsible community members. For this reason we have implemented the following standards in all our tours. Please read them before booking, by providing payment you have confirmed that you agree and understand these standards:
- Mittens, scarfs and beanies are not provided for guests, please bring your own.
- Guests are required to wear a face mask at all times on tour. These will not be provided by Wandering Owl and must be provided by the guest. Please bring them with you from your home country as Tromso is a small city with limited PPE resources that are meant for the local population.
- Guests must not come within 1m of our team or other guests not travelling with them.
- Our offices will be closed for walk in traffic for this season. Please call or email in advance for us to arrange appropriate precautions for those who wish to enter the office. This precaution is to ensure the health and safety of our team.

For more information please see this post: Planning your Aurora Holiday during COVID-19.

How to book: Please select 1 adult for the booking, we will get the details of your group afterwards. The one adult refers to the number of groups. This is a software limitation that we are working on resolving.


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 a phenomena, we can not guarantee them. No refunds, free tours or discounts are on offer if you do not see them.
- They are different every night
- Tromsø 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 then a KP1. 
- We are looking for gaps in the middle level clouds to see the activity.
- The activity occurs 80km+ above the biosphere, that means if there are gaps in the clouds, it is dark enough and there is activity, we will see it all across the region.
- Please travel with travel insurance. The environmental conditions in the Arctic can be wild and ever changing, flights are often cancelled or delayed. To avoid financial losses and disappointment please have insurance and plan your travel wisely.
- If you are not at the pick up at the departure time, we have no choice but to depart without you. No refunds or rebooking is on offer free of charge.
