What you can expect
The symbols of the Aurora Borealis were found on the Shamans’ drums of the Sami population. In their language, the phenomenon has many different names, for example, Sami traditionally associate the Aurora Borealis with sounds. During the Viking era, the Aurora Borealis were thought to be the armour of the Valkyrie, the virgin warriors, which gave off the strange sparkling light.

We like to call it “The Rainbow of the Night” because sometimes the lights appear all at once, dancing through the sky in shades of purple, orange, green and red.
The Aurora Borealis is always different, and to see it is an exciting, magical moment..With the excursion we propose, you’ll become spectators of one of the most incredible phenomenon of our planet.
During our safari, we will walk among silent forests, frozen lakes and old fishing hamlets.

We will try to find the best spots to admire the “Queen”, the Aurora Borealis and, according to the solar activity, we will change place and point of observation. That is why we call this excursion “hunting the lights”. The excursion itself will be an enchanting experience and when your desire to observe the inspiring northern lights will be fulfilled , you will understand why then aurora, nordlys in Norwegian, is considered the most incredible natural phenomenon you can assist.

We have two options:

Observing Northern lights

This excursion is for those who want to enjoy the beauty of the Northern Lights without stress. We will drive you to the nice and picturesque village of Kabelvåg. Kabelvåg is a perfect place for a good observation because of its particular position. In this nice place there is also a very old and typical norwegian pub where we will warm up during our waiting, enjoying a norwegian coffe and a good atmosphere.

English speaking guide at your disposal. Other languages on request.
Warm drinks and typical norwegian biscuits during the whole excursion.

Chasing the lights 

This is a very dynamic excursion perfect for those who want to “chase” the Northern Lights. Our guide will drive you all along the archipelago searching for them. This tour is a very Arctic experience and you will be a part of it. You won’t be just a simple spectator, but an active part of this hunting.

Don’t forget to bring with you warm clothes.

Beautiful people
We had a great day out with Claudia @ Maurizio traveling around to some beautiful areas around the islands. They were extremely friendly and receptive, having even greeted us off our cruise the night before and walking us to our hotel which was only couple hundred metres away. The tour was very informative and they went out of their way to ensure we got plenty of great photos.I had an injury from ... more a fall a few days earlier that was giving me trouble and they insisted we go to a doctor even taking us there after the tour and waiting with us till I was seen to and taking us back to our hotel. Turns out I had a couple of fractured ribs so was good I got the medication needed before I risked any more damage with other activities. Overall it was a great day and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in sight seeing and nature.

Professional and friendly
If you wish to spend some days in Svolvaer, do not hesitate in contacting Claudia and Maurizio. Professional and friendly at the same time, they can provide you with high quality services. I call them at the very last minute, but they were able to arrange a very nice tour for my group. They took care of us from our arrival to the departure, giving us information and suggestions. Highly recommended
