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.

Tromsø is known as one of the best places in the world to watch the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. With so many tour operators we have come to find that visitors of the Arctic wish to have some guidance when searching for the best, and most vibrant places to see the lights.

We have made it our mission to go the extra mile and bring this Northern Lights Sailing experience to you with the utmost detail and passion.

The scenery surrounding Tromsø is breathtaking during the daytime, but sailing in the dark under a clear starry sky with the opportunity to witness the Northern Lights is something very unique and special that only a small selection of explorers get to experience.

Our skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area we have found the best spots in which we will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.

Starry skies, sailing at night, comfort and excitement

The perfect combination for a fantastic evening at sea while watching the Northern Lights, keeping warm, safe while enjoying a delicious dinner onboard under the dancing sky.

Our luxurious yacht in central Tromsø

The Golden Eagle, our luxurious yacht is located in central Tromsø, and your professional skipper will be waiting to greet you at the dock. Our tour groups are small (up to 12 passengers) in order to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

If you do not see the lights we offer an 80% discount on a Northern Lights sailing tour onboard our luxurious catamaran. In the event that we are fully booked on the catamaran, we run extra tours (non bookable) on Sundays and Wednesdays 18:00-21:00.
