On the road from the airport to our first night at Thon hotel in Svolvær, Lofoten, I had to stop so the guests get theirs first view of the Northern lights on theirs first night of this 14 days Trans Arctic Norway package.

Next time I will plan different...

Tonight my guests experience what good patience is while you`re out for a Aurora chase...

 

After 3 nights with no activity, then she showed up with just a faint one in five minutes...

 

I am glad that lady Aurora waked up again when I was back home for chasing her again..;)

But, the main thing for a Aurora guide is to find clear sky for the guests, so what lady Aurora are doing, we have no control over...

I love the end and the beginning of the Aurora season..;)

Some nights are more tricky than others... which can frustrate the guests a lot, but then its important to build them up with a lot of patience...
Sometimes its a hard job, but I guess that split up the guides in good and less experience once...


For a Aurora Chase, the most important a job the guide are doing is to find clear sky, and stay there with enough patience so they will get what they came for...
This night was really tricky and it was overcast all over, with only a few stars visible, but we got a really nice partly clear sky, but just before the little Aurora show begins, then also the clouds came back...


Every night are different, so its a question of little gambling and good luck, but our best recommodation; its to stay here in the north at least five nights for increase your chances for a good one... and that you're where the sky is clear, when she begin to dance...


So, with over 1500 nights outdoor in my 13. Aurora season, and I still counting...


I can only hope you also will join one of the most experience Aurora guides in Tromsø and Norway, for your life experiences.
