Check in by 1pm on each day you wish to take the tour. Dressed in warm clothing, make your own way to the tour operator's office in downtown Tromsø for a 6pm departure. A guide briefs you about the plan for the evening, including the weather and aurora forecasts, then describes, in detail, the phenomenon of the aurora borealis. The introduction ends with some tips to help you photograph the northern lights.
Climb aboard the comfortable vehicle and travel past fjords and mountains until you find the best spot from where to see the northern lights. Between 6pm and midnight, the tour travels to various spots to get the best views of the lights. There is even a break for hot chocolate and cookies.
The tour returns to the office at about 1am where your guide briefs you about the tour. If you are not satisfied with the show you experienced, and wish to try again, just come by the office any day before 1pm to check in and reserve a seat.
Please note: this tour sells out quite often. See "Important Info", for details.
