The Northern Lights are notoriously hard to predict, even in Tromso. So it makes sense to increase your chances of a sighting by joining a guided excursion, especially if you’re only in Tromso briefly. This tour delivers—a guide chooses a prime viewpoint according to the day’s weather and you'll enjoy soup beside a firelit camp as you watch. A drop-off back at your hotel afterward is included.
You'll start at
Fredrik Langes gate 2

What to Expect
Begin your tour in central Tromso, setting off into the outlying fells by air-conditioned vehicle. Your tour may take you across the border into Finland if conditions require, so passports are required. On route, your guide uses local knowledge to select a good viewing point. Having chosen it, they'll set up camp and light a bonfire, so you can watch for the lights in the warmth and comfort.  Enjoy a homemade soup and scan the skies. You may need to wait for a brief sighting; or you may be lucky enough to witness an extended display. As you watch, hear background on this natural wonder from your guide. If you want to take photos, get advice from your guide on capturing the best shots. You’ll also receive souvenir photos after your tour to take home with you. Your outing finishes with a hotel drop-off back in Tromso.

We did this trip on 29th February 2020 and I cant thank Wandering Owl, and in particular our guide Max enough. Highly recommended! We saw three separate shows of the Aurora and that is partially luck- BUT without Max's knowledge of the best places to go, the changing weather

Incredible duo! We went on a few tours around Tromsø, but this was by far the highlight. Virgil made it. His charisma, passion, humor, and genuine enjoyment of people made this tour simply amazing. I organized, in advance, the ‘special night’ and he made that happen. SHE SAID

Even on a snowy and overcast night in Tromso, Bart kept our spirits high and lead us on an adventure into Finland, where we ventured to a frozen lake, enjoyed a dinner, and then were amazed by the lights that emerged into the evening. He got fantastic photos and made the
