Short Aurora Chase | Minivan | Guide: Torsten
[15.09.2018 – 31.03.2019]
On the Short Aurora Chase, you will be in a minivan with 7 guests maximum, chasing the Northern Lights in the surrounding areas of Tromsø. The chase lasts for up to 5 hours, meaning that we try to have you back at your hotel or accommodation in Tromsø around midnight. You will have plenty of time to enjoy the Northern Lights and the beautiful landscape of the Polar Night. Our local expert guides will take you to the favorite and best spots around Tromsø to experience the Aurora in the magnificent scenery with stunning mountains and fjords.
You will surely enjoy this guided experience and learn about the Aurora and other wonders of the universe around the warmth of a campfire if conditions allow. Your professional guides and fascinating storytellers will navigate you through the very best the universe has to offer, from the Andromeda Galaxy to the Demon Star.
We use laser pointers, sensitive cameras and night vision goggles for real time demonstration of the celestial objects and the Northern Lights. In two hours, we will unveil the alchemy that surrounds the Aurora and its colors, how solar storms influence the Aurora activity, why we see the Aurora mostly in the Arctic and much more.
We offer this option after listening to our guests who want to go to bed at the regular time, wishing to stay energetic and prepared for other planned activities. It is absolutely perfect for parents travelling with children.
The weather and the microclimates during the chase day will play a role in where we decide to drive you to look for the Northern Lights.
