Tour Description

Join us on a Northern Lights hunt in a comfortable car or a minibus and watch the lights dancing across the sky.

The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis as they are often called are caused by electric particles originating from the sun that are blown into the cosmos by sun storms and as they get trapped in Earth’s magnetic field, they can often be seen as vibrant light of different shapes and colors dancing before you in the sky. Although, The Northern Lights can be viewed from late August until April, the prime time is from October to March. The auroral display is predominately green, however the Northern Ligths can appear in alternative colors, including blue, pink, yellow and orange.

Visibility of the Northern Lights can never be guaranteed, it depends on certain conditions. Although, the lights can sometimes be seen from the city, we highly recommend taking a tour, as the city lights interfere with the visibility. Before starting the Northern Light hunt, our expert team will view the aurora forecast to find the optimal location in attempt to spot the lights.

Keep in mind that the return time may vary and that sighting can never be guaranteed.
