Northern Lights Safari
On winter evenings when the sky is clear you can see the beautiful Northern Lights over Ilulissat. We will drive away from the blinding lights of the town and go out where the darkness is most intense. Your guide will tell you all about what causes the phenomenon and serve a hot cup of coffee or tea under the stars.
Aurora Borealis is the night sky's most spectacular phenomenon. Solar storms over the polar region provide the best conditions to see the Northern Lights in Greenland, and the winter darkness let us experience it almost every day in Ilulissat, periodically.
We follow scientific predictions in our planning of tours and in this way give you the best possible chances of going out on a trip with success. When there is good chances of seeing the northern lights, we will pick you up at the hotel and drive out to the darkest area in Ilulissat.
Here we can take pictures and enjoy the show when the colors are moving in waves, back and forth in the sky. If the predictions prevent us from starting the tour, we will cancel 1 hour before the tour starts. We of course give you a chance to go on tour again as soon as we are able to set up a new tour with good chances of seeing the lights. In the rare cases were no trips are done in your travel period, then we will refund the amount and hope that you come back to Ilulissat another day to try again.
Remember to book your excursion in the store or online, before closing hours 16:00 on departure day.
Aurora Borealis is an uncontrollable natural phenomenon and therefore we cannot guarentee succes on all of our tours.
