Chase the Midnight Sun: Iceland and Canada tours available now!


Take part in this trip in search of the Northern lights, the aurora Borealis. We like to call it "the rainbow at night" because sometimes the purple, green and pink lights come together dancing in the sky. The Northern Lights are always different and observing them is a magical, exciting moment.


  • Small - group Experience
  • Northern Lights Hunt
  • Kabelvåg village

The aim of this trip is to make you spectators of one of the most incredible phenomena on our planet. Our hunt for the northern lights will take us through frozen lakes, silent forests, beaches and small fishing villages. During the search, we will warm up inside a folkloric pub, enjoying a good local coffee and then continue our adventure. Being organised in small groups allows us to offer maximum flexibility and the use of the minibus/minivan enables us to offer maximum comfort. We like to call this nighttime experience “in search” because the northern lights must be searched for, chased, waited for with patience and, finally, admired in all their splendor.
