Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK/Tromsø
  • ​Depart on your flight to Tromsø via Oslo. This lively city sits in a wonderful position, surrounded by blue fjords and majestic mountains. It is the perfect base from which to explore the region in the company of your Tour Manager​
  • DAY 2 Tromsø
  • Tromsø is famous for its midnight sun during the summer and dark polar nights in winter. Join your Local Guide and discover the city's best sights today, including a photostop at the spectacular Arctic Cathedral, designed to resemble an iceberg. You'll also visit the Polaria Museum where you can learn about the marine life of the Arctic and admire the bearded seals which live here. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure to explore further at your own pace. This evening, you'll head to the Tromsø Wilderness Camp where you will slip into a special cold-weather suit and boots ready for your exciting included husky sledding excursion. As your husky-driven sleigh glides rapidly through the snowy landscape, keep your eyes peeled for the amazing Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights. Tromsø is at the heart of the Northern Lights zone, making it one of the best places in the world to view this spectacular, natural phenomenon, so keep your fingers crossed for a sighting. Later, you will arrive at a lavvu dwelling where you will enjoy a traditional Sami meal around a roaring fire. If conditions are right, you'll have plenty more opportunities to see the Northern Lights tonight as you won't return to your hotel until late.​
  • DAY 3 Camp Tamok
  • After breakfast you'll head to Camp Tamok, where you'll spend a full day with your Sami hosts as they introduce you to their fascinating culture. Enjoy a thrilling ride on a reindeer sled on a drive through the park plus learn the art of lassothrowing – an essential skill for Sami reindeer herders. After the morning's adventures, relax in the lavvu – a traditional Sami dwelling which looks similar to a Native American tepee. Here you'll be served a warming lunch, have the chance to admire Sami handicrafts and hear traditional folk tales.
  • DAY 4 Tromsø
  • Today is free for you to explore Tromsø and the surrounding area. Why not sample the local speciality of Mack beer, which is brewed in the world's northernmost brewery.​
  • DAY 5 Tromsø/UK
  • Today you'll transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK via Oslo.
