From late September until the end of March is the best time of the year to see the Northern Lights from Tromsø. This is when northern Norway starts to get dark from the afternoon until the late morning.
Our private accessible tour in search of the Northern Lights includes hot drinks to keep you warm by the fire. Your guide will meet you at your accommodation, and he will follow the best route for the best opportunity to find the clear skies and thus enjoy the spectacle.
The Northern Lights, also referred to as Aurora Borealis, is a light phenomenon. The lights appear due to the collision between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the atmosphere on earth.
When blown towards the world by the solar wind, the charged particles are deflected by the earth’s magnetic field.
When the sky is dark, the Aurora Borealis is like a ballet of green and blue lights dancing across the sky. The optimal conditions are when the weather is cold and dry. As with all natural phenomenons, you can not take the Lights for granted; however, what is guaranteed is the magic of Norway throughout the polar nights.
One of the best places to see the Northern Lights is Tromso, which is in the heart of the Norwegian Arctic. Winter in Tromso extends from November until March, with an average temperature of -4 degrees celsius (24.8F). On this tour, you will learn about the various myths around the Aurora Borealis and how it generates its different shapes and colors. There will be blankets, hot drinks, and something sweet to help you counter the cold of the night! The guide will make a fire to sit around and keep you warm if possible.
Your guide will share helpful tips and tricks on how to get the best photos. Additionally, he will take pictures that you can take home after the tour.
Overall the time will take approximately 6 to 8 hours, depending on the condition of the night.
– Prepare for an icy night and dress accordingly.
– As the search for the Aurora Borealis may take you all the way to Finland, make sure to bring your passports!
