Northern Lights Sailing

Witnessing the Northern Lights from the sea is a magical moment you will never forget

We are very passionate about The Northern Lights and will do everything we can do to provide you with the most memorable experience while waiting for the sky to start dancing in the sky above you. There are many ways to enjoy nature’s best light show, but our favorite is to combine it with a warm, comfortable cruise through the fjords surrounding Tromsø.

Why watch the northern lights by boat instead of car you may ask? Sailing through the fjords in the polar night is a very unique and different experience than driving to a certain spot in a car or bus. We are able to keep moving with the lights, while being able to go inside to grab a fresh coffee, stay warm and enjoy the lights on the net of a spacious catamaran.

How to explore the North by Land

The fjords in the Arctic are alive and we want to guide you to a day of exploring at sea.

The benefit of venturing into nature on this tour is that we can show you the most amazing places in the area, guide you and your small group along the way, while keeping you warm and comfortable in one of our modern minibuses.

We have found that many travelers want to get out of the city, and explore the epic nature in the area, but do not know where to travel to, nor have any way of getting there. We have created this tour to show you some of the most special fjords in the area in a comfortable, and genuine setting. Our guides know the area well and love to show you our favourite places while providing history and local knowledge along the way.

It’s a tour for the entire family, and you will get the opportunity to ask questions, take pictures and stretch you legs in these amazing arctic environment that we love so much.

 

It was the perfect way to get out and explore the region. I would have never been able to find these spots myself! 

During the tour we will stop for coffee/tea and a light meal at one of our favorite spots .We will provide warm safety suits, gloves and boots to make this Arctic experience as comfortable as possible. The car is always warm and if you are interested in taking some photos when we stop you can borrow our tripods for free.

Before the tour takes off we meet up at our Base camp in central Tromsø for a briefing and introduction to the area we will explore for the day. The bus will pick you up outside of our basecamp so there is no need to walk far or get cold on the way. After the tour, you can enjoy the warm lounge at our base camp for as long as you wish, where you can charge your camera for the evening and plan your next “golden moment” in the arctic.

Fjord Sightseeing Mini Bus Tour

The fjords in the Arctic are alive and we want to guide you to a day of exploring at sea.

The Arctic is such a magical place, offering special moments through and around the fjords during the twilight months that can only be found above the Arctic circle (this is because the sun does not rise above the horizon). We love nature and believe we share this passion with you. Because of this we have created an scenic, educational sightseeing tour in which we will explore the fjords in the arctic landscape around the Tromsø region. You will head out in a comfortable mini bus with a personal guide who will be with you for the entire duration of the tour.
