Northern Lights and Lavvu

Lyngen Adventure

This tour is conducted by Lyngen Adventure. Join us in Lyngen, for one of the best ways to start off your Northern Lights holiday – a rustic evening around the bonfire in our lavvu, hopefully under the northern lights!
There are no guarantees, however as our lavvu is situated east of the Lyngen Alps, in the middle of the Aurora belt, we can offer you some of the best chances of seeing the Northern Lights in Norway.

The evening will focus on giving you;insight into the mythical history behind the alluring northern lights. Of course, should the Aurora appear, we will move outside and enjoy the display in stunning surroundings so you can capture those memories forever! During the night you will have the possibility to ask questions and learn as much as you want from our Aurora guides, who have a lot of knowledge and are always keen on sharing.


Included

  • An evening around the fire with snacks and warm drinks
  • Tripods if wanted
  • Experienced Northern Lights Photographers and Guides
  • A souvenir photograph (hopefully) under the Northern Lights, so you will have the memories forever!
  • The possibility of real time video of your experience! (Strong northern lights needed).
