What you'll do

Between 9 pm and 9:30 pm I will pick guests up and we will come outside of Murmansk, away from the lights of the city to where the skies are completely clear, perfect for viewing the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis. We go to a peaceful location and hope we are lucky enough to see it. The trip is exclusive, there will be nobody else around. As we are viewing the Aurora we will also offer our guests help taking photos of the Aurora, so they can capture these memories. We have years of photography experience and in some cases can take photos of you. We return to the side of the city on the other side of the bay and look at the lights of the night city. We also can make a campfire and enjoy some snacks and warm drinks. Afterward, we will come back to your apartment. This excursion lasts about 3-5 hours.

Where you'll be

I'll take you out of town to watch the northern lights. Make pictures for memory. I will show my favorite panoramic view of the night city. If the weather and location will allow, then we will warm ourselves around the fire.

абсолютно точно могу рекомендовать данную экскурсию с Яном. удовольствие от увиденного и от общения с ним вам гарантировано . если у вас есть профессиональный фотоаппарат - берите его обязательно, так как на камеру мобильного не получится сделать красивые фотографии . если нет - не беда , Ян сам , любезно, делает фотографии и может отправить их вам.

이틀에 걸쳐 특별하고 멋진 여정을 호스트님과 함께 할 수 있어서 영광이었습니다! 3대가 덕을 쌓아야 볼 수 있다는 오로라를 체험 내내 볼 수 있었고 오로라가 우리를 따라오고 있는게 아닌가 하는 생각이 들었습니다 🤩 이는 최고의 오로라 헌터님과 함께였기 때문이라고 생각합니다~ 높은 언덕에서 바다와 별과 오로라를 함께 보며 차를 마셨던 멋진 기억은 죽을때까지 잊지 못할꺼예요.. 오로라에 대해 누구보다도 열정넘치고, 뛰어난 지식을 가진 그와의 여행을 강력히 추천합니다 !! 감사해요 Jan~

More tips

Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and there is never guarantee that you will see them. It is not called "Aurora chase" just for fun. However, I always do my best to deliver you the experience.

What to bring

It is important to understand that it can be extremely cold here in the winter, so good warm clothing is a must to be able to enjoy your time.

Warm clothes, winter boots and thermal underwear.
