aurora & Night sky tours
'' Join, look up at Senja's night sky with us and get the memories of a lifetime.''
Senja island is Norway in miniature within the Arctic circle. It is spectacular during the day but at night it turns into 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. Add to that the little light pollution, and you can 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 island 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.
Night Lights' photographer Adrien Mauduit is also an experienced aurora chaser and astronomy enthusiast with almost 10 years of expertise in many countries like the USA, Canada, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland. He is a specialist in aurora chasing, nature, wetlands and the environment. Needless to say you will be in some of the best hands in these fields!
