This tour is all about exploring the Northern Lights and you'll spend the almost 4 hours finding the best location for Aurora viewing. We start the trip at BorealisAlta, an immersive Northern Lights attraction packed with information to engage visitors, and fun, interactive areas to help bring the phenomenon to life. Visitors can sing or wave to the northern lights – something that was strictly warned against in ancient myths. This will be the perfect start to our own northern light hunt.
After the informative start we will head out in our comfortable Highline Multivan. We can't tell you beforehand where this tour takes you other than that we will follow the weather forecast and drive away from the city to a location where there's total darkness. If the sky is clear, you might be lucky enough to see a spectacular Northern Lights display blazing in the night sky. Groups are small and private, with 2-6 guests + guide.
