Northern lights snowshoe hike

If you are looking for an adventure as you search for the northern lights, this is the tour you want.

Equipped with snowshoes we head up in the snow covered mountains to find our spot with the best view, away from light pollution.

Together we set up our arctic tent and get the fire going. 

The rest of the evening we spend looking for the aurora borealis to show itself from it´s best side. Often hiking up to the summit for the chance of a spectacular photograph.

With a warm expedition meal and hot drinks by the fire we stay warm throughout the evening.

Our guides are experienced photographers and can help you set up your camera gear, so you can get the pictures you hopefully have dreamed of.

In the early season we will often hike up on foot as we wait for the firm snow to settle.

Late evening we descend and return to the city centre.

NB! Please check the weather forecast or contact us before booking this tour. Our goal is to give you a spectacular adventure under the northern lights and if we see they will not be present due to overcast weather conditions we will recommend you save your money:-)
