Activity description

Experience Mother Nature's most impressive light show on this Northern Lights night hike near Bodo!

A remote Arctic landscape situated in the heart of the 'Northern Lights Oval', the quiet mining town of Jakobsbakken has become renowned as one of the best places to see the Northern Lights - made possible in part for its scenic location and minimal light pollution. See it for yourself on this guided night hike - under two hours from central Bodo! 

This activity is run & operated from Sulitjelma in Jakobsbakken and travels into the neighbouring Sulis Mountains. Pick-ups offered from central Bodo (1h 30 min) or Fauske (30 mins).

Meet your guide at the winter cabin in Sulitjelma for this Northern Lights night hike. A once in a lifetime experience in the remote high Arctic, this tour is reputed to be one of the best in Norway - thanks to perfect conditions like a stable inland climate, low light pollution and location over the artic oval - boasting a spectrum of colours you won't see anywhere else! Your adventure will start with a short safety briefing before wrapping up in winter outerwear and snowshoes (provided by the activity operator). Travelling at a casual pace, your guide will take you deep into the woods to a clearing that is the perfect setting for stargazing and enjoying the magic of the world’s most beautiful natural phenomena. If you choose to bring a camera, your guide will be on hand to help you capture the moment. Overlooking a neighbouring lake, you can cuddle up around the fire and enjoy local delicacies before making your way back to town.

This tour operates from September-April and is suitable for all ages and abilities. Please dress appropriately with snow boots and warm winter outerwear - extra layers provided on-site.
