Aurora Safari is our complete, flexible and small-group Northern Lights tour where we offer you all the comfort, safety and local awareness that you are looking for on a Northern Lights Chase. We use our local knowledge and many years of experience to find the best places to search for and photograph the magical Northern Lights. Join our enthusiastic guides, in search for the lights. We bring you to private owned unique places. Dive into the culture and history via authentic storytelling next to a cosy bonfire.
We have many perfectly located private camps through agreements with local landowners, which we use as unique northern lights spots. They give us shelter, toilets and privacy. This keeps the guests safe and make for a much more enjoyable chase as well as strengthening our commitment to local sustainability. We go where we have the highest chances of seeing the lights, so we use a combination of the vehicle and the camps as our base, depending on the weather conditions.
Searching for the Aurora is all about being patient. While waiting for the sky to clear and the lights to appear, we gather around a cosy bonfire that will keep you warm. Settle in with your beloved ones, share stories, gaze at the fire, while grilling a sausage and later enjoying a baked waffle on the outdoor fire. A truly unique Arctic experience.
To give you the utmost comfort and keeping you warm during this Arctic Safari is one of our priorities. Jump in a thermal winter suit that we provide and warm up with a hot coffee, tea or chocolate around the fire.
There is a high focus on night-time and Northern Lights photography, so remember to bring your camera. We help you with the settings and you can use a tripod free of charge. A winter or Aurora portrait and other photos are included in this tour and are shared with you the next day, so you can bring your cherished everlasting memories of the Arctic back home.
