Itinerary

  • Day 1 UK to Tromsø
  • You'll fly to Tromsø today via Oslo. Get to know your travelling companions over a welcome drink and dinner.​
  • Day 2 ​Tromsø
  • Tromsø is surrounded by blue fjords and majestic mountains. It is at the heart of the Northern Lights zone, making it one of the best places in the world to view this natural phenomenon. We'll introduce you to some of its highlights on a half-day tour. 

    
Our first stop is the Polaria Museum, where we'll be introduced to Arctic marine life through a series of fascinating films and exhibitions. We'll take our seats in the museum's panoramic cinema and then follow the Arctic walkway to the aquarium – arguably the crowning glory of the museum. Here you can see an array of fish that thrive in the waters of Arctic regions and a group of bearded seals. They came to Polaria when they were just five weeks old and have since been joined by two harbour seals. If we're lucky we may get to see them at feeding time.


    
Tromsø's centrepiece is the spectacular Arctic Cathedral, a stark white triangular structure which rises high into the sky. Its angular form and sparkling exterior fittingly resemble an iceberg and we'll see this too before heading to the Tromsø Museum. Here we'll find out about Norwegian culture, in particular the Sami people, and also discover more about the Northern Lights.

  • Day 3 Tromsø Wilderness Centre
  • ​Set deep in the Norwegian wilderness, Tromso Villmarkssenter offers a superb opportunity to experience the traditional aspects of Norwegian life. A thrilling husky-driven sled ride through snow-covered landscapes is an ideal way to get acquainted with Norway's memorable great outdoors. As we zip across the tundra we'll take in great views of the mountains surrounding Tromsø, and the cold-weather suit and boots provided will keep us toasty warm. After the ride we'll have a chance to meet the huskies and their puppies and then we'll gather around a fire to enjoy a hearty Nordic lunch.
  • Day 4 Camp Tamok
  • ​Today is your chance to have plenty of free time before we go in search of the illustrious Northern Lights this evening – weather permitting. We'll drive inland to Camp Tamok, where our chances of spotting the lights are good, thanks to the stable dry climate. We'll set off on a two-kilometre hike through this unspoilt wilderness and if we're lucky enough to see the Aurora, our guide will offer tips on how to capture the perfect shot. During our visit we'll be served a three-course meal with a glass of wine or beer and there will be time to chat with our guide around an open fire.
  • Day 5 Tromsø to UK
  • You'll transfer to the air​port for your return flight to the UK via Oslo.
