Turbeskrivelse

Tour description

TOURENBESCHREIBUNG

The excursion is suitable for both adults and children, but it is not suitable for people with reduced mobility.

We start our journey from Clarion Hotel “The Edge” in Tromsø, and head out towards the Arctic Sea, to Kvaløyvågen which is approximately a 45-minute ride away from the hotel. The excursion goes through a wonderful coastal landscape between fjords and mountains.

The northern lights hunt starts already from when we leave Tromsø. In the bus our guide and chauffeur will inform you about the northern light. We will stop along the way if the conditions allow us to look at the northern light.

In Kvaløyvågen we’ll board the M/V “BigFisher II”.

From Kvaløyvågen we’ll bring you along a two-hour boat trip to the archipelago just outside, there we’ll visit the island of Gåsvær – an outpost to the Arctic Sea and northern areas. The island is inhabited, but the light house, church and graveyard is still being used by the locals to this day.

The island was used as a harbor and residence by the northern people long before the Viking age.

We’ll board the island to take wonderful pictures of the northern light that brightens up the sky and eventually disappear in the horizon towards the Arctic Sea and the North Pole.

NB! The excursion might be delayed or cancelled on short notice because of weather dependency. We want to make our customers have an unforgettable experience after a excursion like this.

Facts about the northern light

The northern light is unique and is like nothing else in the skies. The sun, moon, stars and planets belong to the eternal, regular and predictable in human’s life. While the northern light is on the other hand volatile, shifting and erratically. This is where the cosmos demonstrates its electric and magnetic powers, which causes the production of a one-of-a-kind color and movement in nature.

The northern light has to be witnessed, and the best way to do this is under a cold and quiet winter sky with a view over the Arctic Sea and horizon where the ocean meets the sky.

Auroras are produced when the magnetosphere is sufficiently disturbed by the solar wind that the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma, mainly in the form of electrons and protons, precipitate them into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere) due to Earth's magnetic field, where their energy is lost. When this occurs we in Tromsø can witness magical colors dancing over the sky. The colors that are displayed varies, but the most dominating colors are green, purple, yellow and red.
