Itinerary

Day 1 Tromsø

Make your own way to the hotel where your Holiday Director will meet you for your welcome meeting and dinner this evening. Meals included: D

Day 2 Tromsø

Tromso, surrounded by serene blue fjords and majestic mountains, sits right in the heart of the Northern Lights zone, making it a top destination for witnessing this incredible spectacle. This morning you'll have some time to explore the local area. The Polar Museum is a short walk from your hotel and gives an insight in to the explorers, adventurers and researchers of the arctic region. Later this morning we'll make our way to Full Steam, a one-of-a-kind Norwegian restaurant-museum celebrating the cod fishing industry that shaped Northern Norway. We'll meet a local storyteller, who will guide us through the significance of seafaring to the culture of Tromso, and we’ll taste some delectable local cod delicacies.

We'll uncover the city's gems with a local guide on a tour this afternoon. The Arctic Cathedral steals the spotlight; this striking triangular structure rises high into the air and bears an uncanny resemblance to an iceberg reaching for the sky. We'll round off our sightseeing adventure by taking a cable car ride to the summit of Mount Storsteinen, which offers amazing panoramic views of the city below, and if luck is on our side, it's also a prime spot for catching the Northern Lights.

Meals included: B

Day 3 Tromsø

Today we’re off on a husky adventure! This morning we’ll enjoy a dog sledding tour at Breivikeidet, which is just outside Tromso, nestled in the Norwegian wilderness and serves as the gateway to the Lyngen-Alps. This picturesque location treats you to breathtaking views over the majestic mountain peaks and a serene fjord simultaneously. You will take turns being the musher of your own dog sled, navigating tree-lined trails and through open snowy terrain. Accompanied by knowledgeable guides, you’ll soak up insights about local wildlife and the daily lives of the huskies. After your adventure, we'll head inside to warm up by the fireplace and get a traditional lunch featuring moose or reindeer stew, with hot drinks.

The afternoon is at leisure to explore Tromso. As the world's northernmost university city, Tromso boasts a vibrant cultural scene, with galleries, museums, a lively nightlife, and a great restaurant scene. Conveniently within walking distance from your hotel, the Polaria Museum is also an option for your free time, where you can learn about the diverse array of creatures thriving in the Arctic waters.

This evening why not join an optional cruise in to the total darkness of the Arctic fjords surrounding the city. The captain will set sail in the direction where the clearest weather conditions have been predicted with the hope of observing the Northern Lights.

Meals included: B,L

Day 4 Tromso

Today is left free for you to explore at your own pace. In the evening, we'll journey north of Tromso to a reindeer camp owned by a local Sami reindeer herding family. We’ll try the unique experience of reindeer sledding and will also have the chance to feed these fascinating creatures. The setting provides the ideal opportunity to (hopefully!) observe the enchanting Aurora Borealis, and with any luck, the night sky will be clear for our enjoyment. We’ll gather around the warmth of a Sami hut's fire before enjoying a traditional three-course meal. We’ll then cap the evening off by listening to our local Sami guide share insights into the life of a reindeer herder.

Meals included: B,D

Norway - Tromso - Evening Northern Lights Cruise

Norway - Tromso - Evening Northern Lights Cruise

Cruise into the total darkness of the Arctic fjords and Polar nights. We will depart Tromsø and set sail for where the clearest weather conditions for the night have been predicted. The crew will work together and keep their eyes out for clear skies or a gap in the cloud layer. Stay warm in the heated loungers and grab a drink or snack from the onboard cafe while waiting for the Northern Lights to appear. If the Aurora are spotted you can dress warmly and go outside on deck to admire the lights in the night sky. Guides will share their knowledge and personal stories of the Northern Lights, from mythical stories from around the world to the scientific explanation of the Northern Lights. Some nights the Aurora shines bright in the sky and dances with different colours, while on other nights she's a bit shy and is only faintly visible or may not visible at all.
