What you need to


before we go

We have tried hard not to make a lot of rules, terms, and conditions. Nature is about feeling free, relaxing, and being curious, and exploring. That said, being responsible for your safety and well-being, we need some guidelines and clarifications before we set out.


If you have any questions after reading this, please get in touch with us before ordering. We want you to know what you are going to be part of.


You might find answers to some of your questions in the blog or FAQ

The Arctic Moments is a part of the guide company

Naturguiden AS/


More information on the webpages:

Insurance & responsibility

Naturguiden AS/The Arctic Moments is actively working to ensure that the tour will be carried through in the safest way possible, but we cannot secure every single step the individual participant will take.

It is therefore essential that each participant is covered by an insurance policy. Parents and other supervisors who guarantee for children, have to make sure that everyone in their company is in adequate physical shape to participate in the chosen activity. 


Each participant is obliged to follow the guide's instructions at all times.

We can not take responsibility for your personal equipment, for example, camera(s), jackets, mittens, sunglasses, etc. Make sure this is covered through your traveler's insurance should you lose or break something.


Also make sure you keep your equipment dry, on your body, or in the backpack. Cameras tend not to like being brought in and out of different temperature environments during the winter.


Clothing and sitting mats can blow away if you leave them on the ground, therefore it makes sense to keep them in your pockets or your backpack if not in use.


Also - we do light bonfires on some of our trips if the time and weather permit it. Sometimes sparks can burn small holes in jackets and pants. Consider this a free memory from the arctic wilderness, or bring a jacket/pants that are bought for this purpose.

Changes & Cancellations

We use Online Travel Agencies (OTA's) (like Viator, NordicBooking and Get Your Guide). It is practical for us, and safe for you. We have a liberal cancellation policy, and as of today, the policy is that you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of departure - for example at 18:59/6:59 PM - one day before the tour takes place.


If you would like to cancel a tour using our 24-hour cancellation policy please do so using the link in your booking confirmation from either us or any of the above-mentioned OTA´s (depending on where you booked in the first place). You might also send us an email if special circumstances should arise. 

For cancellations occur later than the 24-hour limit we normally don´t give a refund. 


When booking through our website (, and opting for the enhanced refund terms at checkout, and you as a customer cannot attend your booking because of a circumstance listed within the Enhanced Refund Terms, you can apply for a 100% refund any time up to the (first) date of the tour/activity, or for up to 60 days afterward, directly through Protect Group. Contact us at if anything is unclear or if you have questions.


​We normally don´t cancel an activity due to normal winter conditions (there is almost always a chance to see the lights), but sometimes it is necessary due to poor driving conditions and/or avalanche risk. We do take your safety and well-being seriously, and we figure if we feel uncomfortable we should not take you on an adventure. If we do cancel a trip due to weather, driving conditions, broken down vehicles, illness, or forces we can not control (Force Majeure*), etc. you will, of course, get a full refund or a chance to do the same or another excursion on a different day.


You will NOT get a refund if we don´t see the northern lights or if they are weak. It is important that you understand that this is a natural phenomenon that is difficult to predict.


Even on days where the Aurora forecast is good we still might end up seeing weak or no lights at all. That said, we see reasonably good northern lights on about 9 out of 10 excursions during an average season. Northern lights seen through a camera do look better than in real life, meaning we are still able to take pictures even when the lights are not super strong.


We cannot be held responsible for any other expense (for example flight tickets) you have had in connection with this tour. In case of cancellation, you will be notified as early as possible. Please regularly check your email or phone before the tour departure, especially if weather conditions are challenging. Get in touch if you have questions.


A trip can also be canceled if the minimum number of participants is not met. The minimum number of participants will be stated in the product descriptions - normally 2 full paying participants.  


Trips can be canceled on short notice due to the above-mentioned causes. We will do our best to get you on the same or equivalent trip as soon as possible. Your contact information must be correct and updated so that we can reach you if necessary.

*Force Majeure shall mean an unusual and unforeseeable event beyond a party’s control, including without limitation: any act of God or public enemy, war, civil war, insurrection, avalanche, riot, fire, storm, flood, sabotage, embargo, explosion, industrial action (including strike), hostilities or terrorism or threatened hostilities or terrorism, and provided further that the consequences of the event cannot be avoided or circumvented by the party referring to Force Majeure.

Safety & Security

In order to take care of safety on the tours, both winter and summer, we have chosen the 1:8 model. That is, when the number of guests on each outdoor activity is more than 8, there will be at least two guides. On most of our activities, we travel in small groups, and we have an upper limit of 8 guests.  


All of our guides have a passion for outdoor life, with wide experience in different outdoor activities. It is mandatory that they all have up-to-date knowledge on first aid and navigation, that they are updated on the elements in the product- and that they can handle various weather conditions. The guides will always bring the necessary safety equipment along. 


Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the guide to see that everyone in the group is sufficiently equipped and is in a condition to participate in the adventure. If the guide, for some reason, should deem someone unfit to participate (due to alcohol intoxication (or other drugs), inappropriate clothing, illness, health, etc.), the guide is responsible for denying this person participation. In such cases, there is normally no refund, but we will work with you to find a suitable solution.

Please get in touch if you have any weather-related questions or concerns.
