Northern Lights

2017-10-2415:35 Martin Bendiksen

Målselv Mountain Village is located in the inland, where the weather is stable and drier. The climate conditions in this area provide you an excellent chance of see this unforgettable natural phenomenon.

Our guide will welcome you to a heated lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent) where they will share stories and information about the Aurora Borealis around the campfire. The trip continues outside the lavvu with a 1.5 km snowshoe hike through the forest. You will receive tips about how to photograph the Northern Lights with your own camera.

The Aurora is a natural phenomenon and consequently we cannot guarantee when it will appear. However, the experience to learn about Northern Lights and being out at the night in an Arctic environment will provide you a life-long memory.

We provide warm thermal suits and winter boots to keep you warm during the experience.

A light hot meal will be served in the lavvu during the trip.


From December to the end of March, there will be daily bus service from Tromsø (Scandic Ishavshotel) to Målselv Mountain Village. The transfer from Tromsø to Målselv Mountain Village will take about 2 hours. Ask us about a package combining bus tickets with activities/accommodation.


At Målselv Mountain Village, the Arctic experience starts right on your doorstep
