Tour usually lasts around 6-9 hours and depending of the location we are going there will or will not be toilets available. We choose the location we are going dependent of the weather. Even if toilets are not available, we will find a way. 😉 .
Unfortunately not. Northen Lights are nature phenomenon and for that reason in uncontrollable. Although when going out with us you are playing it pretty safe. Our success rate is around 98%. In case we won’t see Aurora no refunds are given and it is not possible to join tour next day for free.
Since Nature is uncontrollable we can not make any promises. In case of very cloudy weather your guide will give you option to cancel the tour before you join. We have been guiding Northern Light tours in Tromsø for the last 6 years. We know where to drive even if the weather seems hopeless. We drove out every day, for a half a year last season and only had 3-4 nights without the Lights. We promise to do anything in our power to make it happen!
We will provide you warm overall and thermal shoes but it is still recommended to wear as much layers of clothes as you can. You will get quality tripod for your camera.
Layers is the key word. Try dressing as warm as possible you can always take off clothes when you are too warm. Wool socks, winter boots, mittens, hat, scarf, thermo base layer and windproof winter jacket-is a good start.
Private daytour is absolutely suitable for kids and is probably one of the most engaging activities for them in Tromsø. Kids have different rhythm than adults and we totally respect that. Tour could be customised, so there can be sliding on snow or building a snowman. Nothing like having happy kids on a holiday, as a parent. 😉
