THE NORTHERN LIGHTS BUS
Tromsø is one of the best places in the world to experience the Northern Lights (aurora borealis)! This is because we are in the middle of "The Northern Lights Belt".
Natur i nord has been arranging trips for The Northern Lights for 11 years now. After all these years we also have a good knowlegde about the local weather conditiones and the good spots where to see The Lights.
We have trips to different areas depending on the weather conditiones. But we never travel more than 1,5-2 hours away from the city center (max 140 km). As an average we see The Lights about 75 % of the trips. That means about 110 trips every year.
Every month is different from year to year. It is not possible to clear out which month is the best ! This is because of the variations about the activty but also about the weather conditiones. My answer to this request is therefore: "The best periode to come and visit is when you have a holiday !"
The most flexible way to find the Northern Lights is to travel a bit around depending on the weather conditiones! If it is clouded around Tromsø the Northern Lights Bus will bring you to an area with less cloudes. When we find the spot we just wait there for the show to begin !
We use 2 minibuses, 16 seats. So you belong to a group of 16 people. Most nights we drive together to the same spot. After 11 years we know about the good spots! But of course some nights the show just starts and we have to stop almost wherever! The regular stops are designed for our groups of maximum 32 people.
