Northern Lights Coach Chase – Northern Norway Travel
An affordable way to maximise your chances of watching the Northern Lights in the comfort of a warm bus. Your hosts, or Arctic Memory Makers, will be sure to give you the best chances of seeing the northern lights while keeping you entertained and warm!
Our Northern Lights Coach Chase is designed for those who want an affordable option to join several chases and maximise their chances of seeing Northern Norway’s beautiful dancing lights.
Meet us in Tromsø outside the Scandic Ishavshotel at 5.45pm (17:45) and meet your Arctic hosts. Depart from Tromsø at 6pm (18:00) and leave the bright city lights behind in search of the magical aurora. Your driver, from one of Tromsø’s leading transport companies, will use his/her skills to ensure that you are safe and comfortable. Your knowledgeable guide will use his/her weather training and knowledge to find a clear patch in the sky to watch the northern lights. Don’t worry if you have a long drive, the comfort of the coach (including toilet) and your guide will keep you entertained along the way so that time will fly!
Keep warm around a bonfire (weather permitting) under the polar sky and enjoy some hot beverages while you wait for the lights to appear. Your guides will help you to set up your camera for night photography as well as take pictures of the night.
Return to Tromsø at about 1am (01:00) at the meeting point and receive your high quality photos by email the next day.
