The guide will choose a location carefully to increase your chances of spotting the aurora borealis. 

The northern lights are a natural phenomenon, so there's no guarantee you'll see them. However, your guide will check detailed cloud coverage reports and a unique aurora forecast to make it more likely that you'll see the incredible natural display.

When you arrive at your viewing location, you'll leave the vehicle to enjoy the surrounding views. You can gaze up at the stars while waiting for the northern lights to appear. 

Temperatures will be cold, so wear many layers, including a hat and gloves. Your guide will provide blankets to help you stay warm.

If conditions are favorable, the majestic light show will begin. Under the Arctic sky, you'll witness a breathtaking display of vibrant colors dancing across the heavens. 

The radiant greens, purples, whites, and blues intertwine and ripple, creating a spectacle that will leave you in awe.

To make your tour even better, your guide will explain which settings to use on your camera to capture stunning photos of the northern lights. 

It can be challenging to take photos if you don't know how, but you'll increase your chances of getting a good picture with your guide's advice.
