Hunting Northern Lights with Snowmobile | Ilulissat

Go deep into the Arctic Night far from the city’s light pollution with snowmobiles and hunt the incredible phenomenon of Northern Lights in the snow-covered mountains.  This tour will follow the dogsled path into the mountains, here, without external light sources, the darkness really envelops you and the stars become much clearer.We will drive around for a bit, until we find a nice stop where we can enjoy the night sky, perhaps with a cup of warm coffee.  Northern lights carry many local tales with them, other Arctic Destinations have stories of dragons and firefoxes, but to us Inuit, they are ancestors running wild across the nightsky playing a game reminiscent of football.As kids, we were told never to whistle at the northern lights, for they would then come down, cut off our heads and play football with them.The morale was probably to get the kids to go home when darkness ensued, but we will muster some bravery and go chase the lights!Please be aware that we can never guarantee to see the northern lights, some nights we are lucky, some nights we are not. However, venturing out on snowmobiles deep into the cold Arctic night is an experience in itself, and we will, without a doubt have some fun.If the sky gets too cloudy we will do our best to re-schedule, if the tour is cancelled we will refund the full amount back to you.So if this sounds like just the tour for you, then go ahead and click on ‘Choose a date’ and find a day(night) that suits you!

Hunting Northern Lights with Snowmobile | Ilulissat

Go deep into the Arctic Night far from the city’s light pollution with snowmobiles and hunt the incredible phenomenon of Northern Lights in the snow-covered mountains.  This tour will follow the dogsled path into the mountains, here, without external light sources, the darkness really envelops you and the stars become much clearer.We will drive around for a bit, until we find a nice stop where we can enjoy the night sky, perhaps with a cup of warm coffee.  Northern lights carry many local tales with them, other Arctic Destinations have stories of dragons and firefoxes, but to us Inuit, they are ancestors running wild across the nightsky playing a game reminiscent of football.As kids, we were told never to whistle at the northern lights, for they would then come down, cut off our heads and play football with them.The morale was probably to get the kids to go home when darkness ensued, but we will muster some bravery and go chase the lights!Please be aware that we can never guarantee to see the northern lights, some nights we are lucky, some nights we are not. However, venturing out on snowmobiles deep into the cold Arctic night is an experience in itself, and we will, without a doubt have some fun.If the sky gets too cloudy we will do our best to re-schedule, if the tour is cancelled we will refund the full amount back to you.So if this sounds like just the tour for you, then go ahead and click on ‘Choose a date’ and find a day(night) that suits you!
