Northern Lights Narvik

The Northern Lights Evening

Looking for more than just a one-time northern light chase? We will give you the tools and skills to find the northern lights and take incredible pictures of them.Our goal is that after this trip you will be able to search for the auroras on your own.

The tour

We will meet at our office at 18:30 and present the plan for the evening: where we are going and why. If we can, we try to stay in the Narvik area since the best chances to see the northern lights is by being outside under the stars and not in the van.

 

However, sometimes the weather is better on the other side of the hill. Then the chase is on! The priority goes to the lights and we will go wherever the weather looks best! Sometimes this is all the way to Sweden, sometimes towards Lofoten. Every tour is unique and we will explain all the decisions we take based on the latest weather forecasts and solar activity reports from NASA.

When we find our main spot for the evening we will make a cozy fire to keep warm by and enjoy some traditionally-made waffles, with a typical arctic drink & homemade cake. We will be taking pictures and portraits of you with the northern lights for you to bring home and show you how to use your camera if you have one.

Warm clothes, shoes, hat and gloves! 
Some nights can be cold. Bring your best luck as well!
If you have a camera and tripod, you can also take it with you :-)

Included in the tour

Remember northern lights are a complex natural phenomenon and nobody can guarantee that they will appear. What we do guarantee, is that we only run the tour when we consider that chances are good for the evening (and yes, that means not every night). Get in touch if you want to know the conditions for tonight!

 

We also commit to making sure the evening is memorable, with or without the lights.

All this in the intimacy of a small group of 8 participants maximum :-)

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.
