aurora & Night sky tours
'' Join, look up at Troms' night sky with us and get the memories of a lifetime.''
The Troms area is one of Norway's most dramatic landscapes right within the Arctic circle. It is spectacular during the day. At night, it turns into an aurora paradise. Its location right in the middle of the auroral oval offers the best viewing opportunities one can imagine, even when the activity is low. A bit further away from Tromsø, the little light pollution allows you to see many other celestial phenomena like the milky way, meteor showers, comets, galaxies and much more.
We offer a six-hour guided outdoor tour. Adrien will guide you to spectacular locations around the area to give you the best night time memories to bring home. From there you will learn the stories and science behind the landscape but also the night sky phenomena.
NB: Due to the current COVID situation, we do not offer this service until further notice.
Night Lights' photographer Adrien Mauduit is also an experienced aurora chaser with almost 10 years of expertise in many countries like the USA, Canada, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland. He is a specialist in aurora chasing and received advanced training in the field of Space Weather. Needless to say you will be in some of the best hands in this field!
Where and when?
This tour can be taken alone or in addition to any of our other activities during the aurora season around the Tromsø area (September 1st - April 10th). You can see when we dispense this activity when you book. It takes place around the Tromsø area island but we will start from our headquarters.
