Northern Light photo cruise

Tour Details

Are you ready to hunt the northern lights with us? Ever wondered if you can see the northern lights in Tromsø city?

There is something magical about seeing the northern lights in the sky, the colors and its movement. Sailing in a boat is a fast way to do it, in one of the best short cruises, leaving Tromsø city center: you will have a different perspective of the city, with beautiful views of the Northern Lights.

We sail north or south, accordingly to the weather forecast and where the possibility of seeing northern lights is higher. We sail in a very cozy boat, with space outside and inside – if you get cold just get inside and warm yourself with free tea, coffee and biscuits!  You can also relax in our outdoor jacuzzi, under the northern lights or in the sauna onboard (subject to boat availability).

We advise you to dress warm (you can also borrow one of our winter warm suits for free during the trip). Our guides can also help you setting the definitions of your camera to better photograph the northern lights.

We can use one of our 3 boats: MS Aurora Explorer (max. 144 pax), MS Leone (max 12 pax), MS Strønstad (max 30 pax). The boat used is determined by the number of people booked in the day itself.

Possibility of Jacuzzi and Sauna: Leone boat has jacuzzi onboard and Strønstad has jacuzzi and sauna onboard that you can use and enjoy, just bring your swim wear (we provide you towels for free). In case you wish to use the jacuzzi, please email us forehand to info@arcticexpedition.no letting us know, so we can have it ready for you.

NOTE! Not operated 24 December

Keep in mind that the weather in the arctic can be rough some days. If you think you might get seasick, please bring sea-sickness medicine with you and take it half an hour before the trip starts.
