Aurora 101 – Northern Lights Chase
Join us in Lyngen, for one of the best ways to start off your Northern Lights holiday – an evening filled with all the information you will need for observing and photographing the Aurora. 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.
At Lyngen Adventure H.Q, we will teach you how to set up your camera and show you how to take amazing photos of the aurora. After ensuring that everyone is suitably dressed for the evening, we will set out for our “basecamp”, in one of several Lavvu’s situated on the Lyngen peninsula. Once we are settled around the fire, we will explain how and when the Aurora Borealis occurs, how to maximize your chances of spotting it, and give you an insight into the mythical history behind it. Of course, should the Aurora appear, we will move outside and enjoy the display in stunning surroundings so you can capture those memories forever!
If weather conditions are not favourable in the local area, we will endeavour to find some clearer skies (as far as is realistically possible).
