Northern lights chase in the North Cape areaDatum: Sonntag 1 okt 2017 - Dienstag 10 Apr 2018
JOIN US ON A UNIQUE NORTHERN LIGHTS CHASE FROM BASECAMP NORTHCAPE, LOCATED IN THE NORTHERNMOST FISHING VILLAGE IN THE WORLD. EXPLORE THE NORTHERN WILDERNESS ON FOOT, SNOW SHOES AND ENJOY THE STUNNING SCENERY OF ARCTIC WINTER.
The Northern Lights Chase starts from our BaseCamp North Cape in Skarsvåg, the northernmost fishing village in the world located just 12 km from North Cape. We walk through a unique Arctic wilderness, and the scenery is stunning with mountains, fjords and endless ocean. Our chase does not include any motorized transportation, but on snowshoes as true explorers, in the middle of the Arctic wilderness, listening to the sound of silence, and still just minutes from our BaseCamp.
After about one hour chase we stop and take a breake in our Lavvo camp, close up to the spectacular rock Kirkeporten. Here we serve coffee, hot chocolate, tea and biscuits. All with a great view to North Cape and the Barents Sea. Finishing our break we continue our expedition and northern light chase, before ending up in our BaseCamp.
For experienced skiers, we also arrange this northern light chase on ski.
