Join us in the hunt for Aurora Borealis!
In order to offer a high-quality Northern Lights experience, we focus on small groups. From Rognan we drive approx. 25 minutes to our basecamp “Ljøsenhammeren” It is situated on a hill in the middle of a beautiful mountain landscape, with great views of snowy mountains. Here we have the opportunity to wait for the northern lights indoors, if the weather is bad. The trip also includes a hot meal, consisting of our famous game casserole based on moose or reindeer meat.
Season for Northern Lights Safari
In the wintertime from late September to early April
How do we find the Northern Lights?
We constantly monitor the local weather report to find out where the best chance to see the northern lights is at any time. We are dependent on a clear sky to see the Northern Lights - and thus the tours can vary in length. As a rule, we drive away from the town centre and towards the mountains where the absence of artificial light makes the experience better.
It may be challenging to take good pictures of the Northern Lights, but we will do our best to assist you. For best results, it may be smart to bring your camera stand. We also take our own pictures on the trip, which we gladly send to our guests after the safari.
What to wear?
The weather in northern Norway is changing rapidly. We therefore recommend that you bring warm clothes. Feel comfortable with the 3-layer principle (wool at the bottom, a warm sweater of wool or fleece in the middle, and windproof clothing as a top layer.
- Long wool underwear
- Warm sweater in wool - alternatively fleece
- Windproof jacket - and trousers / Alternative down jacket
- Hat (covering the ears)
- Thick gloves or mittens
Feel free to take an extra sweater - it's not fun to be cold!
