Experience the Northern Lights with our experienced guides all to yourself

Privat Northern Lights Tour

Are you traveling to Tromsø and want to combine it with experiencing the beautiful light phenomenon Northern Lights?

Do you want to see the beautiful northern lights in a private group? We offer private guided tours in a minibus. With a private tour, you can decide for yourself when the tour starts and ends, it can be great for a family, or as a gift for someone. The tours start from Tromsø and are adapted to the weather and Northern Lights conditions.


Arctic Circle Tours is part of Ami Hotel AS and offers guided tours in our comfortable Vw Caravelle 4WD with room for 7 passengers + driver. It is made for tough Arctic conditions, and takes us safely to nice places.


We go to great lengths to make your Northern Lights dream come true. We will adapt the experience to the conditions and are happy to drive you on longer trips, such as to Finland if that is what it takes to ensure a sky that is cloudless enough to see the wonderful light.


While we hunt for the northern lights, we light a fire and serve hot soup and hot drinks.


Our guide tells you facts, stories and myths about the Northern Lights.


We take a portrait picture of you under the beautiful light, which you can get for free.

If you want to take a picture of the northern lights with your own camera, we will be happy to help you.



The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is a wonderful natural light phenomenon that occurs when energetic particles are hurled from the Sun towards the Earth. It occurs in the upper polar atmosphere, between 80 and approx. 500 kilometers above the earth's surface, when electrons and protons collide with the atmospheric gas. The northern lights appear as dancing lights with several different colors, but most often the color is green.

Experienced local guides

We have experienced local tour guides with a lot of experience from such tours, who know where the best places are based on local knowledge, metrology and warnings from other guides in the area. This will hopefully give you the opportunity to experience this wonderful play of light between the cosmos and our earth.


Welcome to a fantastically memorable trip!
