Set off on an adventure into the total darkness of the Arctic fjords and Polar nights. We depart Tromsø and set sail for the direction where the clearest weather conditions for the night has been predicted. This can be north towards the areas of Kvaløyvågen or south to Ramfjorden or west along the southern part of Kvaløya island. The captain and crew will work together and keep their eyes out for clear skies or a gap in the cloud layer. While we wait for the northern lights to appear, you can stay warm and comfortable in our heated lounges. Grab a beverage from our cafe and a snack.

Our guides will share stories & knowledge
Throughout the evening our guides will share their knowledge and personal stories of the Northern Lights. From mythical stories from around the world to the scientific explanation of the Northern Lights. When we get lucky to spot the Northern Lights, we can put on our warm clothes and go outside to admire lady Aurora in the night sky. Some nights she shines bright in the sky and dances with different colours, while on other nights she's a bit shy and is only faintly visible or not visible at all. Our guides can help you take pictures during the tour.
On the way back, you get a fantastic view of the Arctic city of Tromsø and it's skyline and the famous Arctic Cathedral visible from the water.
