A local, sustainbale and soscial Northern Lights Safari to Aurora Stations.
We have five private and safe Base Stations located in different areas to cover different weather regimes and giving us a hit rate of 85% last season. We have a local host, warm shelters (lavvu or other building), toilet facilities, thermal winter suits and tripods, as well as campfires and benches outside (N.B: The campfire is subject to weather conditions).
The system involving Base Stations is unique to Tromsø Safari. Based on our experience of more than 19 years, around 8,500 Northern Lights Safaris, the latest weather forecast, wind direction and the hosts at the Base Stations, we choose the Base Station or stations with the best chances of clear sky and, therefore, of experiencing the Northern Lights.
If the weather changes and clouds move in, we check with our network if it would be better to move to another location. And if so, we finish our meal, hot drinks and “lefse” before leaving to look for clear skies somewhere else. In these circumstances, we will stay along the roads searching for a clear sky.
Our focus on this trip is always to show you the Northern Lights!
A winter or Aurora portrait and other photos can be purchased via our web page after the tour.
