Join us for a spectacular Northern Lights chase experience in Tromsø.
With our eco-friendly philosophy, delicious local food and knowledgeable guides, we will take you on an Arctic journey that you will never forget.
This trip also included a visit to the Logje Sami Family.
Your Northern Light host will pick you up at Radisson Blu Hotel and your Northern Lights adventure will start.
You will have the chance to learn about the science behind the Aurora Borealis through an interesting video.
This will be when we visit the Logje Sami family 20 minutes drive from Tromsø.
Storytelling about the Northern light and the Sami people who have lived here in the arctic for generations will follow.
Storytelling will be in a real Sami lavvo. You will also be served the traditional Sami dinner called ‘Bidos’.
Our guide will provide you with a brief technical run-through, and share basic knowledge about how to best photograph the auroras.
Once your hosts have found a scenic spot, you will take off from the Sami basecamp and hunt for the northern lights.
We search the polar sky for the Northern Lights and capture them in photos.
We offer photography tips and limited use of tripods.
If the dancing lady does not appear, or the weather conditions change, we may need to move on and continue the chase!
