Both tours have similarly high chances of catching the Aurora and both tours last between 6 and 10 hours, depending on how far we have to drive to find clear sky and how late the Northern Lights show. Both tours travel in the same direction on their chase to find the best weather and the guides on both tours help each other out with updates about the sky conditions. To keep group sizes to a minimum, they typically do not stop in the exact same location.

The Big Bus has an on-board restroom, while on the Minibus Chase we try to make stops at public restrooms, if possible. Group sizes, prices and inclusions are different. Find out more below.
