Activity description

Cruise through the Arctic fjords while watching the sky dance above you thanks to this wonderful Northern Lights sailing excursion in Tromsø!

Pukka Travel is very passionate about the Northern Lights and will do everything they can to provide you with the most memorable experience while waiting for the sky to start dancing in the sky above you.

There are many ways to enjoy nature's best light show, but the best is to combine it with a warm, comfortable cruise through the fjords surrounding Tromsø. The city is known as one of the best places in the world to watch the Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. 

The scenery surrounding Tromsø is breathtaking during the daytime, but sailing in the dark under a clear starry sky with the opportunity to witness the Northern Lights is something very unique and special that only a small selection of explorers get to experience.

The skippers and guides have the knowledge and first hand experience to keep you safe and comfortable while enjoying the dancing night sky. After hundreds of sailing tours in the area, Pukka Travel has found the best spots in which you will have the highest chances to see the lights. Your skipper will also navigate to different areas depending on the weather forecast.

Witnessing the Northern Lights from the sea is a lifetime experience you will never forget!

– Guided cruising tour on board a luxurious catamaran

Bien qu'annoncé couvert, le ciel s'est dégagé une fois arrivée sur site. C'était magique!

Une très belle expérience!

Shame we didn't get to see the Northern Lights but it was quite the experience - pretty much well outside our comfort zone with narrow walkways, no handrails or guards. But something I've never done and glad I went.

manquait que les aurores!!!

Superbe activité. Petit feu au bord des fjords, dégustation d’un ragoût de Rennes et chamallow grillés. Et pour couronner le tout des aurores pleins le ciel ! Spectacle au rendez vous et immortalisé par les photos du guide !

Great travel with great people
  • 5 / 5

We are told that the sail is canceled due to the broken boat, so we have to switch to mini bus. We are fine with this, and have a nice night with some new friends from all over the world, however unfortunately we were not able to see northern light tonight due to cloudy sky. Feeling a little bit regretted, and hoping we can see it within our duration. The mini bus is comfortable, and wearing the coat and shoes offered to us, we feel we can survive even exposed to cool wind all night. We had hot chocolate, chocolates, reindeer soup and snacks, and surrounded by friendly people.

Glory to Pukka !

Quoi de mieux qu'une chasse aux aurores en catamaran ? Je recommande fortement !
