Northern Lights Sailing
US$174.81
Overview
Spotting the northern lights can be tricky. Maximize your chances of seeing the natural phenomenon on this sailing trip from Tromsø. In a small group of no more than 12 people, board a catamaran and head out onto the water, far from the lights of Tromsø and to some of the best spots for seeing the aurora. Along the way, enjoy provided snacks and drinks while keeping an eye out for the dancing lights to appear overhead.
What to Expect

We are very passionate about The Northern Lights and will do everything we can do to provide you with the most memorable experience while waiting for the sky to start dancing in the sky above you. There are many ways to enjoy nature’s best light show, but our favorite is to combine it with a warm, comfortable cruise through the fjords surrounding Tromsø.

Why watch the northern lights by boat instead of car you may ask? Sailing through the fjords in the polar night is a very unique and different experience than driving to a certain spot in a car or bus. We are able to keep moving with the lights, while being able to go inside to grab a fresh coffee, stay warm and enjoy the lights on the net of a spacious catamaran. 

Our skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area we have found the best spots in which we will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.

Excellent boat set-up and Captain

Everything on this boat cruise was top notch; while the Northern Lights, NL, can be illusive, Skipper did a great job to hunt them out to be seen. The boat is well equipped for client comfort with all the necessary cold weather gear required to...More

A great evening

We did two activities with Pukka: a Northern Lights Sailing and Reindeer Sledding. Both were unique, very fun and well organized. They were very responsive over email and answered all of my questions prior to booking, and their website was really clean and well laid-out....More

Hi Jorge, I would recommend taking an SLR camera, as our mobile Iphone cameras didn't pick up any pictures. There were a couple of people on board with us, who took amazing pictures with their SLR cameras. Enjoy!
