Northern lights

Is experiencing the legendary and magical Northern Lights on your bucket list? It should be!


The Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) has always had a special place in the hearts of the people of the north. The Vikings considered the lights to be dancing virgins waiting for them in Valhalla, and in Sami tradition it represents a supernatural power, and the home of our passed ancestors.

During the last couple of years, the Northern Light activity has been amazing. We’ve seen them from Tromsø almost every cloud free day all winter. The solar activity is said to peak right now, meaning the incredible amount of magic will not last for many more years.

Did you know that the Northern Lights are present all year around? It’s only because of the bright summers we can’t see them.


Tromsø Lodge & Camping

In Tromsø, you can see the Northen Lights already from September and until March. With mountains surrounding us, breaking up the clouds, Tromsø is the perfect place to witness this incredible sight. Here, at Tromsø Lodge & Camping, you will have a mix of nature and no artificial light (perfect for Aurora Chasing), only 5 minutes from the city.


Activity Tips
