Aurora Arctic Tours

About

There is no better place to experience the outdoors than Northern Norway. We believe that there is something magical about the Aurora Borealis and the breathtaking Arctic landscapes. This world has many wonders, and we will be more than honoured to show you one of its unrivaled treasures. With a team of like-minded guides, we would like to create for you a unique travel experience, providing services beyond your expectations.

OUR MISSION

The idea behind our service is quite simple. Our goal is to give you a well-designed, authentic travel experience. We achieve that through focusing on our guests, paying attention to the details and constantly improving them. In a small group (of 4-8 guests) we share a good time and get closer to the pure nature of the Arctic. We also believe that it is our responsibility to be conscious of the impact that we have on the environment. Whilst organising our activities and services we are trying to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible. If there’s anything you would like to ask us, feel free to contact us at any time. We will always reply as soon as possible!

ACTIVITIES

We'd love to hear from you

Northern Lights Tour

Make yourself comfortable whilst we take care of everything else. We will pick you up with our van from your accommodation in Tromsø at 6:30 PM. Before the tour starts, our guide will analyse the weather conditions in order to predict the best spots for the Northern Lights show. During most of our tours, we are able to find Aurora on the Coastal islands, occasionally the clear skies will be waiting for us in Finland. Once we find the perfect spot, we will set up a bonfire and begin to capture the spectacle on camera. Relax whilst sipping hot drinks, warming up with a hearty meal and enjoying delicious cookies. Don’t worry about being cold. We have thermal suits, boots and heat packs waiting for you in the van, but do remember to dress properly. Our guide will take pictures during the tour and will make sure that you have your perfect photo with the Aurora. If you decide to bring your own camera, we have tripods available and will help you with the camera set up. Pictures taken during the tour will be sent to you the next day. The duration of the tour can vary from 6-9 hours, weather dependent. After the tour, we will drop you off back at your accommodation.

City Walk

The walk begins at 10 AM. You meet the guide at the meeting point in the city center.

During this tour, you will get familiar with Tromsø and its history. The first highlight is the remains of the medieval architecture, the marketplace with the well-known sculpture of the fisherman and also the remnants of the times when Tromsø was the Central trade hub - charming wooden architecture.  

Next, we will head to Polaria.  Polaria is the world's most northerly aquarium. Rather than a mainly scientific aquarium such as the one in Bergen in the Norwegian midlands, Polaria, which opened in May 1998, is designed to be an educational experience, with particular emphasis on displays for children. Most of the displays focus on the northerly islands of Svalbard.

After that, we will go for a coffee and delicious cake in one of the restaurants in Tromsø.

Your guide will provide you with facts about the town and Norwegian history and culture in general. The guide will be also taking pictures which will be shared with you by email after the tour.

 

Please remember to dress according to the weather!
