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!

    Jeg havde en fantastisk oplevelse på Nordlys-turen, som virkelig oversteg alle mine forventninger (som i forvejen var tårnhøje!). Jeg blev hentet ved mit overnatningssted, og så kørte vi rundt til forskellige afkroge af byen, imens mørket faldt mere og mere på. Min guide var Mads, som har en stor viden og kærlighed til både byen, naturen og grønlandsk kultur, og han var virkelig generøs med sin indsigt og refleksioner. Det var meget berigende at få en dybere forståelse for byen, og det var en stor ekstragevinst ved turen, som jeg slet ikke havde regnet med, og som gjorde selve køreturen i sig selv alle pengene værd.

    Derudover kender Mads alle de gode steder at spotte nordlyset fra og var meget opmærksom på at gøre min oplevelse speciel, så selvom jeg havde set det første af nordlyset på himmelen og haft en fantastisk oplevelse med det, kørte vi mellem de gode spots lang tid efter, de to timer, som jeg havde betalt for, var løbet ud, fordi det så ud til at bygge op og blive endnu vildere. Og det blev det! Vi endte med at se det smukkeste nordlys bevæge sig på himlen – en virkelig magisk oplevelse!

    Derudover fik vi en lækker kakao undervejs, og Mads tog nogle rigtig gode billeder, som jeg til sidst fik over på min telefon. Generelt var det fedt at mærke, at det ikke var en oplevelse baseret på en gentagelse af en fast skabelon – jeg oplevede nærværende samtaler og at dele begejstringen for nordlyset. Guide to Greenland får mine allervarmeste anbefalinger! Det er uden tvivl også en tur, jeg selv vil tage på igen, når jeg næste gang besøger Nuuk.

    We were very lucky of booking this tour. The guide was perfect! He drove us through Nuuk and the best places to see the Northen Lights. He was very patient looking for the best spots. We were a couple with a 2 months baby and everything was very good. And he took amazing pics for us! We definitely recommend !!!! Congrats for the wonderful job!

    Thank you so much. An experience that exceeded all of my expectations. Mads is a wonderful guide and host, he is informative and kind with a great sense of humour. He is also determined to deliver the most memorable experience. Mads drove us to the darkest spots of Nuuk to get the best sightings possible. We were very lucky and could see the northern lights throughout our whole experience. To witness such a phenomenon is truly breathtaking. The hot chocolate was delicious. A highly recommended tour and a brilliant guide. I will be back.
