The tour

After meeting in Narvik, we will head to a mountain along the fjord where we will put on our snowshoes, show you how to use them and start walking up. Landscapes and views all along the way will leave you breathless. The area around Narvik offers the mountains, the fjords and the wild.

Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the arctic countryside and immerse yourself in Nature. Sometimes we're lucky to spot a rabbit, a moose or other wildlife!

After effort comes comfort. When we reach our destination, we will then share a typical arctic lunch by the bonfire to make you discover the norwegian winter picnic: hot dogs, fishcakes, cinnamon rolls. Suitable alternatives for dietary restritions are available as well, just let us know in advance :-)

We will leave from Scandic Hotel at 10:30 and present you the plan for the day. No previous experience is needed but you must enjoy being outside despite the possible cold. We will be back around 14:30-15:00. This will be a day out you will remember!

This tour is accessible to people with a minimum active physical condition. If you don't like / can't hike, it will likely not be enjoyable for you. Contact us if you have a doubt.

Ready to live a memorable outdoor adventure?

  • Is the tour suitable for children?
    It's not ideal for them but we believe every kid is different and you're the one who knows them best! From experience kids need to be at least 8 years old to enjoy the activity. However, have in mind that it can be late and "boring" to them (lots of waiting!). Give us a call if you have a doubt, we'll be happy to talk through it together :-)
  • 4 to 7 hours? How long is actually the tour?
    It depends on each night. Some nights we have to drive far (all the way to Abisko in Sweden!) and can be back around 1am or later. Other nights we are lucky to have the northern lights very close to Narvik and if we see them early, we could be back before 23:00. We consider there isn't a fixed schedule to follow, every show is unique so flexibility and patience are key to spot the northern lights :-) We always let you know what's our plan for the evening when we meet.
  • What are the chances of seeing the northern lights?
    On the overall, the chances are good most nights in Narvik area. We evaluate daily the chances for the evening based on weather forecasts and solar activity reports from the NASA and then decide to run the tour or not. We will share our evaluation honestly with you so feel free to ask us! If we consider chances are very low, we will warn all guests and potentially cancel the tour. You then get a full refund. Keep in mind that northern lights are a natural phenomenon hard to predict and impossible to control... :-)
  • What's your success rate?
    We're happy to spot the northern lights more than 90% of the time. We believe it is thanks to a thorough evaluation of weather forecasts and solar activity reports by our team. When chances are too low, we prefer not to run the tour so we guarantee you can trust us regarding this. We want to see the lights as much as you do! When we do not see the lights, we have usually found clear sky, it's just that the northern lights don't show up, and that we have no control over.
  • Do I get a refund if we don't see the northern lights?
    The answer is pretty straightforward, no. First because the costs are the same for us whether we see the northern lights or not. Second because there is much more to the tour than just seeing the northern lights. You will learn how to chase them, how to find a good spot, which app to use, how to take pictures and more! Even if we don't see the northern lights... :-) We want to see them as much as you do and we will be giving our best! It's part of the magic and nobody has control over nature. What we do guarantee you is that we only run tours when we consider there are chances of spotting them.
