With an expert English-speaking guide, you’ll head away from the city lights and into the countryside to maximise your chances of seeing nature’s very own mesmerising light show. Weather forecasts are analysed in detail and the route changes daily in order to follow the lights as they dance across the night sky.

Discover the world’s northernmost capital city from the top deck of our buses with your 24-hour ticket.
