Join us for a Northern Lights safari out of the ordinary! No freezing, no long drives and best of all: No clouds! From November to March you can join us on an exclusive Northern Lights experience. While others drive hours along seemingly endless dark roads, we are the only operator taking you on a chase with utmost comfort.
With a conventional chase, you may find yourself waiting shivering and full of hope that the clouds might part and reveal a tiny bit of sky, while you could instead be comfortably seated in a warm cabin, sipping champagne while nature's most spectacular light show unfolds right in front of you.
We depart from the airport of Tromsø in a small plane, which is operated and maintained by Widerøe, one of Norway's major airlines. Leaving any clouds below us, you are up for a stunning view of the starry night sky, having the best chances to watch Lady Aurora's nightly dance. To pass the waiting time, a glass of champagne or another beverage of your choice will be served (alcohol-free alternatives available).
Once we reach our cruising altitude, cabin lights and other aircraft lights will be dimmed as much as regulations allow, to provide a clear view on the night sky and the Milky Way from the dark cabin of the aircraft, bringing you as close as possible to the notoriously elusive Aurora.
Due to the Northern Lights being a natural phenomenon beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that you will see them during this tour. Being less dependent on weather conditions, as well as far away from any obstructing artificial light sources, you have however the best chances with us.
As an additional benefit, this tour departs later than other Northern Light excursions, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a proper dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in our city.
