Northern Lights Chase including Possible Bonfire Experience from Tromso
"We pick you up in Tromsø and take you by bus on a chase for the magical Northern lights. With good local knowledge we will find the best area for the lights and good scenery for your pictures. To find a clear sky we will drive where we have to even to inner Troms if needed. During the evening your guide will tell you interesting information about the Northern lights both the science and the folklore. We will also show you how to adjust your camera settings for pictures of the northern lights and we will take pictures of you with the lights for you to take home to show your family and friends. (Available for download in original size from our Flickr account). We may also visit our lavvu (our modern Sami shelter) and sit around the nice warm b and roast marshmallows (If we are within reasonable driving distance from our base camp). Occasionally the chance of a clear sky is low and in that case we will advise you before the excursion to reschedule for the following day. If we are fully booked the following day you will have your money refunded instead."""
