Is your dream to see the Northern Lights but you want to do it in relative comfort? Join us on a drive to the darkest sites around Nuuk for the best views of the Aurora Borealis.

Your local guide will meet you at the departure location 15 minutes prior. But make sure you dress for the cold!  In order to have an unobstructed panorama of the lights as they dance across the sky, you will want to get out at each of the different stops. The good news is that the warm car is always right there, in case you do get cold while outside admiring nature’s light show.

As you drive through Nuuk, your guide will explain a little about the city and you are encouraged to ask as many questions as you would like.  You will also be treated to hot chocolate to help keep you warm as you admire the views.

As with any Northern Lights experience, it is important to remember that the lights are unpredictable and may not appear - despite what forecasts may say.  But be assured that your guide will do their utmost to give you the best experience possible and, if you are really unlucky, remember that you can rebook a place on a different night for free.

    What a great tour this was! My first night in Nuuk and in Greenland was a cloudy one, but our guide Mads still tried every spot in town in the hunt for the stars and hence the Northern Lights. With no luck on our side he promptly offered to drive us the next day free of charge. On the following day there were some breaks in the clouds and there were the lights! It was so awesome! And adding to that the possibility of watching them from inside the heated car drinking hot chocolate made it perfect!
    Also I must add that being a solo woman traveler I’ve always felt very safe.
    Thank you Mads for going the extra-mile to make sure I saw the Northern Lights on my visit to Greenland and for being super kind!

    Jeg havde en fænomenal tur med Guide to Greenland. På grund af vejret, så var guiden kompetent og fleksibel og anbefalede en anden dag end den jeg havde bestilt, så jeg havde mulighed for at opleve dette naturfænomen.
    Jeg kan klart anbefale Guide to Greenland. 🙂

    I am very happy that I booked this trip. The guide, Mads, was very flexible and offered to reschedule twice to get the best chances possible for seeing the aurora.
    When we went out he showed us much of the city while we waited for the lights to appear. The car was comfortable and hot and there was hot chokolate for us after we had stood outside and watched in the cold.
    We saw the lights from several different places, so the hunt was successful.

    I had the pleasure to join this tour more than once and every single time has been wonderful! The guide was driving around Nuuk City, and made several stops in different spots so we all could enjoy northern lights with various landscapes. It was cold, but we also had a break with biscuits and hot chocolate. Fabulous trip!

    Jeg vil gerne give Guide to Greenland mine allervarmeste anbefalinger. Vi havde en helt fantastisk oplevelse, hvor vi kørte rundt i alle afkroge af Nuuk, for at jagte nordlyset forleden. Vores guide hentede os, og kørte os rundt i byen i mere end to timer. Vi stoppede ved forskellige lokationer, fik en masse lokale tips og fortællinger om den grønlandske kultur og historie. Til trods for, at vi ikke var så heldige at nordlyset viste sig, havde vi en helt fantastisk tur. Vi ved, at der er tale om et naturfænomen, og at der derfor aldrig er garanti for at se nordlyset, men vores guide forsikrede os, at tage os på endnu en tur (på deres regning), for at lede efter det en anden gang. Vi følte i den grad, at turen oversteg vores forventninger, måske i særdeleshed fordi den endte med at blive anderledes end planlagt, men bestemt ikke mindre værd.

    Igen, tusind tak! Vi glæder os til at komme på nordlys-tur en anden gang!
