Hunting the Northern Lights with Glød Explorer

This tour is staged as a real hunt (like Discovery Channel’s, Chasing Tornadoes). We use the latest northern lights and weather forecast to optimise our chances of experiencing this celestial phenomenon. If the weather in the Alta is not optimal (too many clouds), we drive towards the fjords or the inland, until we find clear sky and the lights. This method gave us a 93 % hit rate last season.

On this tour, you will get a short presentation of what causes northern lights, their history and tales. You will learn how to find northern lights on this specific evening, and how to take photos of them. Experienced Northern Lights guides with photo competence will be at your service, helping you with camera settings etc. Photos (taken by the guides), hot chocolate and snacks are included.
