Chasing the northern lights
In this extended chase, lasting up to 6 hours, we use the whole of Lofoten and some parts of Hinnøya to search for areas with clear skies and perfect sourroundings with as little light pollution as possible.
The goal is to find areas where the northern lights will be our only source of light. The size of the group varies from 3-14. If you are a larger group this can be arranged.
