Experience northern lights in Tromsø

Take off on an unforgettable northern lights adventure in Tromsø, the best Aurora Borealis destination.

Experience the Northern Lights in Tromsø 

The northern lights can offer a surreal spectacle, a natural light show painting the Arctic sky with vibrant tone of green and sometimes pink, red and purple. The Tromsø area, settled within the Arctic Circle, is renowned for its optimal position and low light pollution, making it a prime destination for witnessing the phenomenon.  

Tromsø's status as a hub for experiencing the Northern Lights is a result of its advantageous location in the middle of the northern lights belt and beautiful landscapes. The Aurora Borealis dances across the night sky, leaving spectators in awe.

Best Time for Northern Lights: September to mid-April

The best time to chase the auroras in Tromsø is during the period September to mid-April, when the nights are dark enough for the lights to show in the sky. Clear, dark skies away from urban lights maximize your chances of witnessing the Northern Lights' breathtaking dance. Keep in mind that this phenomenon is natural, like weather, making its appearance unpredictable. However, when it graces the sky, it's a sight that lingers in memory as an unforgettable experience. 

Northern lights: a weather chase

Tromsø has a subarctic climate that changes a lot. However, there are several subclimates in the surrounding areas, and the weather can be quite different, just a short or longer drive away from the city. This means that northern lights chases in Tromsø are more of a weather chase of finding clear sky. The local expertise among guides is a big help for you to succeed in acheiving your dream of seeing the Green Lady dance in the sky. They know how wind direction and the natural landscapes can give you a higher chance of seeing the lights in one place over another. The best place to see the northern lights is the place where the possibility of seeing clear sky is the best, and this can change from day to day.
