Evening Northern Lights trip from Murmansk

  • Included meals: No
The group gathers between 19:00 and 21:00, depending on the Northern Lights and cloud coverage forecast. We will contact you beforehand with information on the exact time. The pick-up place is usually at the Meridian hotel (near the Azimut) in the very city centre.

We will leave the city to avoid light pollution. Following the up-to-date information about the cloud cover, we will drive to the place with fewer clouds where the chances to see Aurora Borealis are the highest. It can be a short drive or a longer one, up to 100 km from the city.
During the tour your guide will introduce you to the history and nature of Murmansk region and tell about the peculiarities of life in the Arctic. The guide will take care of photos and we’ll provide a link to download them.

Return back to Murmansk and drop off in the city centre.

Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon and no one can guarantee that you will definitely see them.

Please be aware that there are no toilets or food outlets on the route once we leave Murmansk.
