What you'll do

I will pick you up where you are staying, and we'll go where the clearest weather is and the best chances of seeing the aurora borealis; mostly in rural parts were it will be fantastic nature and views - but of course the BIGGEST chance of catching the breathtaking northern lights because in the total darkness, with no light pollution.

I offer an authentic and very personal guide, enjoying the silence and the full focus on the scenery a smaller group will offer. Not the 15 people in a minibus or 40+ in a bus.

I will bring a pro camera with tripod, and I will be concentrating taking pictures so you can focus on the lights! I take approx 200 pics and will upload them afterwards on google disk.

You will be transported in a very safe luxury XC90 (2018) with panorama roof and 7 seats , with a bensinwarmer so the coupe is constant warm without having the engine on!
I will bring lambskin to sit on and knitted wool clothes, and the possibility to make a bonfire when we find the perfect spot.
Healthy sandwiches with salmon/ ham / roastbeef) and warm and cold drinks included.

5-6 hours estimated. Discount if you do two tours(included daytrips) and groups bigger more than 3 to 6 people.

Contact me if you have any questions!

Born and raised in the beautiful lofoten islands, but have lived in Tromsø for 10 years. I'm 37 years old and is easygoing and I love nature and people. I've been to almost every mountain in the Tromsø region, and know the area and the best spots where to find the fantastic aurora borealis. I will share special locations that will get your heart and soul beating, and hopefully you will experience the fantastic northern lights!

Where you'll be

The great Kvaløya. Norway 5th biggest islands and is a very - if not the most - popular destination to visit/hike both winter and summer, and to chase the aurora borealis. Fantastic shoreline, majestic mountains, breathtaking fjords, wildlife, and charming communities! Last but not least - the best place to catch 'the northern lights'!

There is also a possibility to do this roundtrip in daylight too, to see the fantastic fjords an mountains

Bjorn es muy agradable y sabia mucho de las auroras. Nos contó historias muy entretenidas y se mantuvo muy optimista ya que en un inicio había muchas nubes pero finalmente vimos un espectáculo hermoso

Marius did his best to arrange the best time as the best prediction of aurora. Despite several trial and many hours of hunting at different spots, we can see small northern light. Regardless the light was not as strong as we would like it to be, thats nature to decide; but im happy to meet new friends. The group was really cool! Marius ensure we are all comfortable and enjoy the trip. Thanks so much!

Très belle expérience avec Bjorn Marius. C'était pas gagné mais on a réussi à voir des aurores boréales après 5h d'attente. Ça valait le coup d'attendre ! Repas partagés ensemble avec les autres hôtes, de belles découvertes ! Bjorn est captivant et professionnel pour trouver des aurores boréales. Rien n'est jamais perdus !
