Reserve your seat on the cosiest drive with a local guide and some new friends, and go chase the northern lights around the most scenic areas of Nuuk, this is a tour for anyone who has ever admired northern lights pictures and wished they could move to the Arctic.

We’ll be a small group so you can ask all the questions you want, as we drive around Nuuk to the darkest and most picturesque areas of Nuuk in hopes of the Northern lights. We will pick you up at your accommodation in a nice heated car, but dress for the cold as we’ll go outside of the car to truly experience the beauty of the green dancing lights. To help you keep warm, the guide will bring hot chocolate and biscuits.

Remember that the lights are unpredictable and that even on a night with a high chance forecast, we might not see them, and that on a night with a low probability we might see a huge show of lights. We cannot guarantee to see the lights but we’ll have a great time trying to! So come with a smile and let’s go on an adventure!

If we’re unlucky and do not see any, you can book a seat on a different night for free!

Here in Greenland, we call the northern lights ‘Arsarnerit’, which means ‘the football playing lights’, as the legend goes that the lights are in facts spirits playing a type of football.

The northern lights most often appear in a beautiful green shade, but they can appear in all sorts of colours like red, purple, white, blue and even pink! This happens when electrically charged particles react with different molecules in our atmosphere and burst into colour!
