What you'll do

Between 9 pm and 9:30 pm I will pick guests up and we will come outside of Murmansk, away from the lights of the city to where the skies are completely clear, perfect for viewing the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis. We go to a peaceful location and hope we are lucky enough to see it. The trip is exclusive, there will be nobody else around. As we are viewing the Aurora we will also offer our guests help taking photos of the Aurora, so they can capture these memories. We have years of photography experience and in some cases can take photos of you. We return to the side of the city on the other side of the bay and look at the lights of the night city. We also can make a campfire and enjoy some snacks and warm drinks. Afterward, we will come back to your apartment. This excursion lasts about 3-5 hours.
Other things to note
Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon, and there is never guarantee that you will see them. It is not called "Aurora chase" just for fun. However, I always do my best to deliver you the experience.

Where you'll be

I'll take you out of town to watch the northern lights. Make pictures for memory. I will show my favorite panoramic view of the night city. If the weather and location will allow, then we will warm ourselves around the fire.

Мы ездили с Яном на охоту за северным сиянием 5 марта. Мы были в Мурманске 3 дня, и Ян выбрал лучший день для поездки. Сияние мы увидели! Ян много рассказывал об этом природном явлении, угощая нас вкусным чаем. Для нас был важен комфорт в поездке без толпы туристов, и мы это получили. Благодарим Яна за этот опыт и впечатления!

Хочу сказать огромное спасибо организатору за очень крутое событие. Ян прекрасный организатор, с которым было очень комфортно. Нам удалось увидеть сияние, хоть погода и была очень "тяжелой". Ян на своем автомобиле отвез далеко за город и подарил нам вместе с природой подарок в виде сияния. В дороге мы непринуждённо болтали, слушали кайфовую музыку и наслаждались поездкой. Ян угостил нас горячим чаем из местных трав и печеньем. Также Ян запечатлел на свой фотоаппарат нас на фоне северного сияния. Если у вас нет своей камеры, то Ян сможет вас выручить! Если вдруг кто-то из моих друзей или знакомых захочет отправиться в путешествие за северным сиянием, то я обязательно буду им рекомендовать услуги Яна. Огромное спасибо!

Jan demonstrated great experience in hunting auroras, he managed to find a place with clear sky to see the auroras after visiting plenty of locations where he went out to check the sky. He is very professional and shows concern about safety. Thanks to him we could see the northern lights and we could take very nice pictures with them. 100% recommended.
