Spotting the northern lights can be tricky. Maximize your chances of seeing the natural phenomenon on this sailing trip from Tromsø. In a small group of no more than 12 people, board a catamaran and head out onto the water, far from the lights of Tromsø and to some of the best spots for seeing the aurora. Along the way, enjoy provided snacks and drinks while keeping an eye out for the dancing lights to appear overhead.
What to Expect

Time: Daily 21:30-00:30

Season: October-March

Price adult: 1400 NOK

The Golden Eagle, our luxurious yacht is located in central Tromsø, and your professional skipper will be waiting to greet you at the dock. Our tour groups are small (up to 12 passengers) in order to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

Our skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area we have found the best spots in which we will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.

Small snacks and drinks will be served and we provide all of the gear you need including warm suits, extra gloves, hats, and boots. However we do recommend to bring proper winter clothing for your maximum comfort.
