Based on constantly updated weather and solar activity reports I will take you to where the chances to see the northern light are the best.

I will help you to capture the northern light on your camera and I will be happy to answer all questions you might have.

Once we’ve found clear sky, I will stop and help you set up your cameras.

I will take portraits of you under the northern lights and share them after the trip.

 Hiking tour 

Easy Hike Length and duration 4km roundtrip * 297meter high mountain 1-2 hours walk Nattmålsfjellet is a great trip on Kvaløya. Also called "10 o'clock" by the locals in Ersfjord, because the sun is over the top at 10 o'clock. From the top there is a beautiful view of the Ersfjord and all the big beautiful peaks across the fjord. There are nice paths all the way up to the top from different sides, so there are several options to choose from when going up. This is a very popular trip especially in the bare ground season. From the car park, follow a good path towards Nattmålsfjellet. The path goes in a northerly direction. There are gentle climbs and nice gentle climbs. This is a trip that can be done all year round.

It is of course easiest in the summer when it is dry. But it can also be done in the winter.

My photogear is:

Sony a7lll 

Sony 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3

Laowa 15mm f/2.0 wideangle

Samyang 12mm Fisheye

DJI Mavic Pro

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind.

These disturbances are sometimes strong enough to alter the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma.

These particles, mainly electrons and protons, precipitate into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere).

The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emit light of varying color and complexity.

The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere.

Proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes.

Pickup point is Kirkegata 2 Tromsø City center - Near the harbor
