Hunting for the northern lights in Trondheim

Date: Monday 1 jan 2018 - Monday 30 Apr 2018 Show map

The Northern Lights are pure magic, and the feeling of seeing this natural phenomenon live is unforgettable.

Hunting for the Northern Lights is a real experience. You walk along the Lade Trail right beside the Trondheimsfjord. The tour guide is photographer Øyvind Blomstereng, who will assist you with your camera settings so you get the best shots. The tour starts outside the Trondheim Tourist Information Office at Nordre gate 11. You will be met by Øyvind Blomstereng, who will be your guide. There will be several stops along the way, while food and drinks will also be served. Remember to wear warm clothes, good footwear and bring your camera.

There is no guarantee of seeing the Northern Lights, but we follow the Northern Lights forecast closely. When booking the trip, you will receive a prognosis of the likelihood of capturing the Northern Lights on your camera that evening.
This tour is only available during the Northern Lights season (September to March).

Expert guide Øyvind Blomstereng: He is one of the best Northern Lights photographers in Norway and is well known for his fantastic photos. He was awarded “Best Photographer of the Year” for 2014 by broadcaster NRK Trøndelag. His Northern Lights time lapse was discovered by Reuters and distributed to media all over the world. This resulted in his images being shown on more than 40 TV channels worldwide and led to articles in newspapers such as the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Huffington Post and Aftenposten. Øyvind holds lectures about the Northern Lights, and will be your guide in the hunt for the Northern Lights! Check out @mymagicalmoments on Instagram.
