NORTHERN LIGHTS WATCH
Would you choose just anybody to chase a lion? Chasing the Northern Lights is no different!
Malangen Resort is located in one of the most visited Northern Light hotspots in the Tromsø area. “The Watch” enhances your opportunity of seeing the mystical Northern Lights. We prepare for this magical journey with a briefing about this natural phenomenon and the current conditions before we set off to our very own basecamp, Camp Nikka, located 20 minutes from the resort. Camp Nikka is strategically located behind our resort in a location that experiences less cloud activity and the statistics taken by our guides the previous years show that chances of Northern lights here are around 85%! Please note that because of our unique location, our tour does not include “chasing” the lights via a minibus. Rather we have chosen this basecamp experience to allow all of our guests to enjoy the northern lights with comfort and relaxation around a fire inside of our cozy lavvu.
Our experienced guides continue the Northern Light chase long after you fall asleep.
If they spot the elusive light dancing in the night sky while you’re sleeping, we will wake you up with a magical Sami song. That means it’s time to jump into our Northern Light survival kit and meet in the hotel lobby within 10 minutes!
