Fall, winter, spring




4-5 hours

This trip focuses on experiencing the northern lights and we spend almost 4 hours out looking for this fantastic phenomenon. We start the evening with a small lecture about the northern lights. This is to give you an understanding of how it occurs, then we look at the conditions for this particular evening. We can not say in advance where we are going, this depends on the weather forecast and northern lights forecast. We use our local knowledge to find the best places to experience the Northern Lights dancing in the night sky.
