Fulfill the dream of experiencing the magical northern lights when you visit Ilulissat.

Spend the evening chasing the best views of the magnificent Aurora Borealis in the darkest sites around town. This adventure will take you to the outskirts of Ilulissat where your guide will explain how storms on the Sun cause these lights in our atmosphere, while you watch them dancing above. There are Northern Lights almost every night in this part of Greenland, so you have a very good chance of seeing them during your stay.

There is nothing quite like watching the ribbons and curtains of light flowing silently across the backdrop of crystal stars.

After the tour we will return to the hotel and the guide will prepare a traditional Greenlandic coffee.

Away from the light pollution of the city, Winter’s Arctic light-show is at its most spectacular, so book your front row seat by selecting your date of travel and clicking Book Now. 

Note: we use scientific predictions to determine the likelihood of the Northern Lights appearing during your tour. If it does not look good, we will let you know about an hour before the tour starts and reschedule for another night. If they do not appear at all during your stay in Ilulissat, we will refund your payment.

    FANTASTIC ARCTIC EXPERIENCE! If you are coming at the end of the summer and there are northern light trips available, book them!!! Greenland is one of my favorite places to see the northern lights, since the cities are not so big, and then you do not need to get far away in order to get rid of the light pollution.
