Catching the light – Aurora Borealis

Experience the magical colours of the Aurora Borealias. Join our snowmobile-adventure as we head out into the dark and hunt the northern lights.
Our guides will use their local knowledge and experience to give you the best chances of experiencing the northern lights.  This trip is an open-destination trip which means that the guide will choose the route based on weather-forecast and current conditions.

As we leave Longyearbyen behind, we will drive into one of the many side-valleys and away from the light pollution of the settlements. Here we get the chance to experience the magical lights in an untouched arctic landscape. On the way, we might visit our traditional Gamme for some warmt and a hot drink while we wait.

We require a minimum of 2 persons on this trip. Minimum age is 12 years. Contact us directly for alternatives.

For this trip we offer an optional snowmobile insurance of NOK 200 which you can choose to add to your booking. In case you have an accident with your snowmobile, then you will not have to pay a deductible to cover the damages (up to NOK 6000). If you want to share a snowmobile as driver and passenger, then you only need the insurance for one person!
