Tromsø Northern Lights Search
This trip offers the best chance you can get to spot the Aurora. Your local guide picks you up from the centre of Tromsø and, depending on the level of cloud cover, heads north to a spot where the Atlantic is on one side of you and the Lyngen Alps on the other, or East as far as the Finnish border. The emphasis is firmly on hunting Aurora and where they are most likely to occur, so the trip can last for anything up to 8 hours. During the evening you move location two or three times to provide different backdrop settings and to avoid any light pollution. All levels of photographers are welcome and your guide is on hand to help you produce some memorable shots.
