NORTHERN LIGHTS SAFARI

 THE "WONDERS OF NORTHERN NORWAY" -  AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE

For generations, the magical Northern Lights have filled people with enthusiasm and awe. Given its location at 69 degrees North and beneath the Northern Lights Oval, we have exceptionally good conditions for "chasing" the lights.
​Even though we have considerable experience and extensive knowledge of the Northern Lights and the local surroundings, it’s impossible to guarantee a successful chase. No one can!
However, we will do our utmost to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. During the 2015/2016 season, we spotted the Northern Lights on 96 % of our chases. 
 
​We will pick you up at the Tromsø Tourist Information Office in a minibus (the maximum number of passengers is 14). We provide ourselves on providing excellent, personalized service. On all chases with more than seven guests, we have a driver and a guide, so you will have two professionals at your service.
 
​From here we will drive you into Norway`s wide open landscape. Sometimes we drive quite a distance from Tromsø, other times a much shorter distance. We decide, where to go, just before we set off, based on the weather forecast and our knowledge for the Northern Lights and local surroundings. There may be snow and poor conditions on the coast but excellent conditions somewhere else.
​We never know for sure when or where the Northern Lights will appear or how intense the activity will be. Consequently, it`s important to reach places where the vastness of the spaces and the darkness will give us the highest changes of seeing and experiencing the Northern Lights, even on nights when the activity is not so intense.
​On the way your guide will provide you with information about the area and the Northern Lights. We will be more than happy to answer your questions and will do our utmost to ensure you have a memorable trip, regardless of the weather.
 
​We provide warm thermal suits in varied sizes. We also have a selection of hats, mittens, socks and boots. If you have your own winter clothes, please bring them otherwise we will do our best to provide suitable gear. Please, remember to wear woollen underwear or similar as dressing in layers is important. Even though it`s not that cold along the coast when you consider the latitude, it can get quite cold when you are outside at night over a longer period.  Hence, it`s important to dress warmly on order to enhance your overall experience.
 
​If you want to take good photos of the Northern Lights, we recommend a DLSR camera and a tripod. We are experienced Northern Lights photographers and will be happy to assist you with your camera settings and offer tips. We also take photos on each tour and (conditions permitting) we will take a photo of you with the Northern Lights and email it to you after the tour free for charge.

SOMMARØYA

THE "SUMMER ISLAND" IS THE MAGICAL ARCHIPELAGO IN THE NORTH

Even though you have seen the beauty of the night, the magical Northern Lights, you might wish to experience the beauty of the day as well.
The weather conditions in the north are constantly changing. As a result, you may experience extraordinary moments thought out the day without the unique and changing light. The colours you will see during the day will be almost as magnificent as the Northern Lights. The beauty of the scenery will stand out in contrast to the snow in winter. If you are travelling this far, we recommend that you experience as much as possible. Don`t miss the exciting trip!

We leave Tromsø early in the morning and drive to Sommarøya – an archipelago in the open sea about an hour west of the city. We don`t drive directly – we make a variety of exciting stop along the way to add to your experience.

On the way we stop at the strong tidal current Rystraumen and pass the 4000-year-old rock carvings (note: in winter, the can be snow-covered!). We then visit Tove, a glass artist, at her studio and you have the option of buying some of her work as a special souvenir. We will be served Norwegian waffles, coffee and tea. The traditional way to eat waffles in Norway is with brown goat cheese, jam and sour cream. Try it – and you will love it!

The next stop will be the unique coastal community of Sommarøya, a fishing village situated beside the open sea. The scenery here is spectacular and the photo opportunities are endless. You will also find some of the most romantic white beaches in the region and see the distinctive rocky island of Håja, which provided the inspiration for Tromsø`s Arctic Cathedral. If you are very ambitious you can bring your swimsuit on the tour!

We will drive along two fjords to reach the next valley, Kattfjorddalen, which still shows traces for the glaciers that formed the valley during the last Ice Age, 12.000 years ago. Later we arrive at Kaldfjord where we turn left to experience the unique Ersfjord. This narrow fjord surrounded by high mountains is one of the most famous fjords near Tromsø. Northern Lights photos taken here have appeared worldwide.

If you are lucky, we will also experience Arctic wildlife, such as the white-tailed sea eagle, reindeer and various bird species.
We will have a variety of brief stops along the way to photograph the beautiful landscape.
