Northern Lights

NORTHERN LIGHTS

The North of Norway is worldwide known as one of the best places to enjoy spectacular views of the northern lights. The best season is winter, as it has most hours of darkness. However, in spring and autumn you can also see the northern lights, if the conditions are optimal.
Being located on an island, far from the light pollution of cities, Seiland is a perfect place to observe and photograph it.

organized guided tours since 2007, and have the knowledge about how to find the
Northern Lights if the conditions are there. On our tours you normally will have 80-90
% chance of seeing this spectacular view. Our guides also provide local history from
the Stone Age, Sami culture, reindeer-herding, wildlife, Second World War and the
modern society in Alta and Finnmark. During the tour we serve warm and cold snacks and beverages (alternative to vegans etc).
