Welcome to BorealisExpedition

I offer Northern light and Fjord Tours

BorealisExpedition is a local business providing guided tours in the Tromsø area.

I have been a northern light guide for 8 years for another local company in Tromsø.

I have a Mercedes Benz Vito 

I am located in Tromsø, about 350 km above the Arctic Circle.

If conditions allow, I will choose the best location for our trips.

I also offer payment by card terminal in the car.

What should you bring?

Warm clothes (at least two layers), gloves and hat, good winter boots.

Based on constantly updated weather and solar activity reports I will take you to where the chances to see the northern light are the best.

I will help you to capture the northern light on your camera and I will be happy to answer all questions you might have.

Once we’ve found clear sky, I will stop and help you set up your cameras.

I will take portraits of you under the northern lights and share them after the trip.

I recommend you dress up in three layers:
The Base layer is the most important one. I

t’s your main isolation that keeps you warm:
- underwear in merino wool
- wool bra for women
- wool socks
- long underpants
- long-sleeved shirts

 

Make sure your clothes consist of merino wool.

Wool fiber is naturally cooling or heating the body as needed.

It’s a four season fiber, so it works perfectly for summer as well.

Since it breathes and manages moisture better than any other fiber.

 

Mid layer
- wool sweater
- fleece jacket
- buff or scarf
- beanie or hat
- gloves or mittens

 

Top layer
- isolated and waterproofed pants for arctic nature trips (for the city a jeans or casual pants will be fine)
- soft shell jacket
- down jacket
- isolated and waterproofed winter boots
- spikes for your shoes (in case the streets are icy)
- water bottle or/and thermos

 

Many good isolated clothes will keep you warm and let you enjoy your polar adventure

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Auroras are the result of disturbances in the magnetosphere caused by solar wind. 

These disturbances are sometimes strong enough to alter the trajectories of charged particles in both solar wind and magnetospheric plasma. 

These particles, mainly electrons and protons, precipitate into the upper atmosphere (thermosphere/exosphere).

The resulting ionization and excitation of atmospheric constituents emit light of varying color and complexity. 

The form of the aurora, occurring within bands around both polar regions, is also dependent on the amount of acceleration imparted to the precipitating particles. Precipitating protons generally produce optical emissions as incident hydrogen atoms after gaining electrons from the atmosphere. 

Proton auroras are usually observed at lower latitudes.

Pickup point is Kirkegata 2 Tromsø City center - Near the harbor
