Northern Lights Tour to Base Stations

Two private base stations are at our disposal in the quest for the northern lights. Based on 20 years of experience, the stations are located in two different areas with distinct weather patterns – to provide you with the best opportunities to experience the northern lights!

Both base stations have a local host, warm houses/lavvos, and toilet facilities. All guests are served hot drinks, lefse (Norwegian flatbread), and a warm meal.

Which base station is best suited for the evening is determined based on experience, updated weather forecasts, and information from our local hosts. If the weather changes during the evening, we will decide where to go next after we have enjoyed our warm meal. If the northern lights appear, we will stop along the way.

We will do our utmost to ensure that our guests can experience this spectacular natural phenomenon on the tour, learn more about what the northern lights are and how they occur, and also learn how to photograph them. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that the northern lights will appear, but we can promise you a wonderful trip.

Boreal Travel is committed to contributing to the development of sustainable tourism. Therefore, our northern lights tours support local businesses. We have lease agreements with local landowners, all our buses have an approved local driver, and we always use local food suppliers.
