    What to Expect
    Join us on our exciting Northern Lights Big Bus Chase to chase the magnificent Northern Lights. We conduct this tour in a spacious and modern bus which provides comfort and warmth along our journey in search of the Aurora Borealis. If you’re looking for a comfortable and affordable chase to maximise your chances of witnessing the beautiful Northern Lights, then Chasing Lights' Big Bus Chase is the tour for you!

    After the tour departs from Tromsø's city centre, we will drive to where we expect the best weather conditions that night. This may be on one of the islands surrounding Tromsø or all the way into Finland! Along the way we will tell you about the Northern Lights and other interesting subjects.

    Once we’ve found clear sky, we will stop and help you set up your cameras. If conditions allow, we will choose a scenic locations with a beautiful foreground. We will take portraits you and the Northern Lights if possible, and share them after the trip - free of charge.

    We provide hot drinks as well as hot water that you can use to prepare your own meal. The bus is heated, so you can always warm up inside.

    While the Northern Lights are an unpredictable phenomenon, Chasing Lights' success rate of over 90% shows our dedication of going the extra mile for you. We look forward to chasing the Northern Lights with you!

    We have seen just a small aurora due to weather/aurora conditions but the guides were very good, said interesting things and were able to lead the trip smoothly. Also the bus was very comfortable and the toilet perfectly clean.

    Months of the year matter, but also the latitude. The further north you go, the absolute better. We took a bus from Trumso, Norway into Finland as it was raining in Norway. Northern Lights drove us the 3 hours until we... More
