Are you ready to hunt the northern lights with us? Ever wondered if you can see the northern lights in Tromsø city? Board in this Northern Lights Photo Cruise and keep incredible memories with you forever!There is something magical about seeing the northern lights in the sky, the colors and its movement. Sailing in a boat is a fast way to do it, in one of the best short cruises, leaving Tromsø city center: you will have a different perspective of the city, with beautiful views of the Northern Lights.
We sail north or south, accordingly to the weather forecast and where the possibility of seeing northern lights is higher. We sail in a very cozy boat, with space outside and inside – if you get cold just get inside and warm yourself with free tea, coffee and biscuits! You can also relax in our outdoor jacuzzi, under the northern lights or in the sauna onboard (subject to boat availability).
Our professional guides will be able to take photos for you during the trip, with the northern lights in the background (we send you these photos within 72 hours after your tour) and also give you photography tips and you setting the definitions of your camera to better photograph the northern lights.
We advise you to dress warm (you can also borrow one of our winter warm suits for free during the trip).
If you don’t see the northern lights the night you join us, you are more then welcome to join us again, free of charge, in the next nights, when you wish!
