WEATHER

We can see a pretty much accurate weather forecast a maximum of 48 hours in advance but it is still possible that this changes at short notice. Long term weather forecasts don’t work in the Arctic.

If the weather conditions are bad we never depart and try to reschedule the tour or cancel with a 100% refund.

Lights of Vikings have a really high success rate in finding clear sky which is one of the most important criteria to see the Northern Lights. Our concept is famous for driving long distances if necessary!

Is there refund back if we don’t see THE northern lights?

Unfortunatelly no, because team makes too much effort and we departure tours if we only have chance to see the northern lights.

If everywhere covered by clouds, we cancel the tour and we will do full refund back.

If we cancel the tour we always ask you to join next days tours when we have better conditions if you are available.

Otherwise we will do 100% refund back.

RESCHEDULING THE TOUR
