Northern Lights Hunt Tour
Pick up from hotel 20.30pm / 21.30 pm, duration 3 hours. The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis are a spectacular natural phenomenon. The locations visited are different every tour since we go where it’s most likely to see the Northern Lights each day. You will travel on a coach to the best locations with an English speaking guide.
