What are the differences between an Aurora Safari Minibus and an Aurora Safari Camp tour, with Best Arctic?

Best Arctic, one of Tromsø's most respected tourism companies, is renowned for its breathtaking Northern Lights adventures. We offer two distinct experiences to witness the celestial spectacle of the Aurora Borealis: The Aurora Safari Camp and the Aurora Safari Minibus tours. While both options promise an enchanting encounter with the Northern Lights, they offer unique aspects that cater to different traveler preferences.

Who is Best Arctic?

Best Arctic, based in Tromsø, Northern Norway, is a tourism company devoted to providing unforgettable Arctic experiences. With an emphasis on sustainability and local support, Best Arctic’s adventures encompass a wide range of Arctic attractions, including Northern Lights tours, whale watching, dog sledding, and cultural experiences.

Aurora Safari Camps: Comfort and coziness

The Aurora Safari Camp is a testament to Best Arctic’s commitment to providing a comfortable Northern Lights experience. This tour takes participants to a pre-chosen private, secluded camp, where they can enjoy the celestial spectacle in comfort and warmth. The camp is chosen 2 hours before the departure time, and it will be the one with the best chance of seeing the northern lights.

What to expect in an Aurora Safari Camp tour

Guests at the Aurora Safari Camps can expect a cozy atmosphere, with warm shelters (a small cabin, house, or tent) and toilet facilities provided. At the camp, visitors are served a small hot meal (a warm soup or a stew – vegetarian alternatives are available on request), hot drinks, and a local Norwegian sweet snack. Each group will have up to 44 guests, that are transported from and back to Tromsø in a big bus, with a local experienced driver and a professional English-speaking guide.

The Aurora Safari Camp experience

Upon arrival at the camp, visitors are welcomed by local hosts who share personal stories and ensure a pleasant experience. Each camp offers a unique panorama, with views of the seaside, fjords, or mountains. While waiting for the Northern Lights, guests can enjoy the warm shelter and engage with the hosts’ stories.

Aurora Safari Camp: Northern Lights photos

Best Arctic’s skilled guides will take winter and Northern Lights portraits of guests, as well as landscape pictures. If guests want to use their cameras, guides can lend tripods and assist with camera settings. The standard resolution will be available for free download on our website and high-resolution photos will be available for purchase shortly after the tour.

Understanding Aurora Safari Camp tours

One of the key features of the Aurora Safari Camp tour is the opportunity to stay in a cozy and heated indoor location while waiting for the northern lights.

Aurora Safari Minibus tours

The Aurora Safari Minibus tour is an exciting and convenient way to chase the captivating Northern Lights. If you’re looking for a hassle-free excursion that offers flexibility, this tour option is perfect for you.

The first advantage of the minibus tour is the flexibility it provides. It is guided by experts who know the best viewing spots, who have a deep understanding of the Aurora Borealis, and will take you to the most promising locations to increase your chances of witnessing this mesmerizing natural phenomenon. They will share their insights and stories about the Northern Lights, making the experience even more enriching and memorable.

It is an excellent choice for those who want a hassle-free way to witness the Northern Lights. With its minibus, knowledgeable guides, and groups of up to 14 guests, you can embark on an unforgettable journey to chase the enchanting Aurora Borealis.

Comparing Aurora Safari Minibus and Aurora Safari Camp tours

Now that we have explored the key features and advantages of both the Aurora Safari Camp and Aurora Safari Minibus tours, let’s compare the two options to help you make an informed decision.

The Aurora Safari Minibus tour is perfect for adventurers seeking a more immersive and authentic experience. The expert guides will take you to the best viewing spots, maximizing your chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis.

On the other hand, the Aurora Safari Camp tour is ideal for those who prioritize comfort and convenience. You can wait inside in warmth and comfort for the northern lights to show. This tour is also available for children from 4 years old (not younger due to safety and comfort reasons).

When deciding between the two tour options, consider your preferences and priorities. If you value comfort and convenience, the Aurora Safari Camps tour may be the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you’re seeking a deeper connection with nature and a more immersive experience, the Aurora Safari Minibus tour is the way to go.

Choosing the right Aurora Safari tour for you

Choosing the right Aurora Safari tour depends on your individual preferences and what you hope to gain from the experience. Consider the following factors to help you make the best decision:

Comfort vs. Immersion: If you prioritize comfort and convenience, the Aurora Safari Camps tour is the ideal choice. However, if you’re seeking a more immersive and authentic encounter with nature, the Aurora Safari Minibus tour is the way to go.

Budget: Consider your budget and the cost of each tour option. The Aurora Safari Camps tour may be more budget-friendly, while the Aurora Safari Minibus tour offers a more adventurous and immersive experience at a higher price point.

On both tours safety comes first, so both have one local driver and one professional guide, offering unforgettable experiences and the chance to witness the mesmerizing Northern Lights in their full glory.

Embarking on an adventure to witness the Northern Lights is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Both options provide an unforgettable journey, ensuring that your experience is nothing short of extraordinary.

Embark on your Aurora-seeking adventure with Best Arctic and create memories that will last a lifetime.
