We booked the tour for our group of 13, and did not get disappointed! Our local guide Sævar took care of us from A to Z – smooth pick-up, customised departure time, and a fun tour all the way. Sævar found some open spots in the clouds, and we got to see beautiful lights. The picture he took for us are memories for a lifetime! Highly recommend!


Seeing the Northern Lights is a lifetime dream of many, and witnessing the beauty of this natural wonder is an unforgettable experience.

However, finding them can be tricky, and they don’t just appear on demand. Cloud cover and road conditions in the arctic winter can be tricky, and interpreting the northern lights forecast is not always easy.

So travel safe and in style with our experienced local guides, who will go far and beyond to make your dream come true.
