Aurora 101 – Departure from Tromsø

An educational evening, teaching you everything worth knowing about the Northern Lights.

Join us at the Northern Lights hotspot Aurora Spirit for possibly the best way to start off your Northern Lights holiday: an evening filled with all the information and demonstrations you will ever need for a successful chase. And the best part? Situated east of the Lyngen Alps in the middle of the Aurora belt, we can offer you some of the highest Northern Lights viewing probability in Norway.

During your stay, we will teach you when and how the Northern Lights occurs, how to maximise your chances of spotting it, and give you an insight into the mythical history behind it. Everything is designed to ensure you have the best tools possible for your future expeditions. To make it even better, we have included a Bivrost tasting and a Northern Lights photography course so you know how to capture your very own shots!
