On this tour enjoy 2 nights in Tromso, a charming town in northern Norway above the Arctic Circle, plus 1 night in an amazing Glass Igloo in the Lyngen Alps. Enjoy wonderful winter activities including an exhilarating dog sled safari, a guided hunt for the Northern Lights, and either a snowmobile safari or an exciting wildlife safari by boat. 

Day 1 Tromso Arrival 
On arrival at Tromso airport, make your own way to your hotel, and time at leisure. Majestic mountains, fjords and a stunning archipelago surround this university town, a place with a lively atmosphere and friendly locals. Tromsø is renowned for being one of the best places on the planet to observe the amazing Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis, as it is situated right in the middle of the Northern Lights zone. And despite of being so far north, Tromsø enjoys a moderate climate, with the average temperature in January being -4. Perhaps visit the Arctic Cathedral for it’s daring architecture, the Polaria Aquarium (don’t miss the Northern Lights & Spitsbergen Arctic Wilderness films), the Polar Museum to learn about the role Tromsø has played in Arctic exploration, and the MS Polstjerna, a well preserved sailing vessel from 1949.  Or take the cable car up to Mount Storsteinen and enjoy the fantastic panoramic view of Tromsø and its surroundings, visit one of the several excellent art museums, or sample some local beer at Mack Brewery, the world's northernmost brewery, with guided tours that take you through 130 years of brewing history. 

Day 2 Tromso -  Snowmobile or Wildlife Safari, Northern Lights Hunt & Glass Igloo Overnight
This morning after breakfast,  transfer from the hotel to the beautiful, small resort in the Lyngen Alps, where you will stay tonight in a Glass Igloo. The resort sits in stunning surroundings, far from any light pollution, in the peace and quiet of the Arctic forest. Then enjoy either a 2 hour snowmobile safari  (16 Dec - 31 Mar only) exploring the landscape and travelling up to a mountain plateau for some breathtaking views, or (for all dates) an exciting Wildlife Safari by boat, seeking whales, porpoises, orcas, seals, eagles, cormorants and more. After lunch, the afternoon is free for you to relax - maybe try out the snowshoes or cross country skiis. In the early evening your host offers a short Northern Lights photography workshop, followed by a tasty dinner. Then it's time to venture out on an exciting chase for the stunning Northern Lights, with your host. Tonight you will stay in a Glass Igloo, a comfortable cabin inspired by the traditional Sami tent, with a glass roof facing north so you can gaze at the skies and look for the Northern Lights from the comfort of your bed. 

Day 3 Return to Tromso and Aurora Husky Safari
After breakfast, its time to head back to Tromsø, arriving at around 11:00hrs. Check into your hotel where you will spend tonight.Then tme at leisure to further explore - perhaps take a stroll in the cosy pedestrian street, and walk through the historical Skansen area. Tonight there is time for one last adventure, a search for the Northern Lights by dogsled! The silence of the night is broken only by the sound of the dogs, as you pass through the snowy winter landscapes, looking up at the Arctic night. Then return to your hotel for the night.
