On this tour enjoy 2 nights in Tromso, a charming town in northern Norway above the Arctic Circle, plus 2 nights at beautiful Malangen Resort, luxurious accommodation on the banks of a fjord about 70 kilometres from Tromso. Here there is no light pollution, creating ideal conditions for viewing the Northern Lights. Enjoy wonderful winter activities including an exhilarating dog sled safari, 2 guided hunts for the Northern Lights, and a fun guided snowshoe walk through the forest.

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.  Perhaps 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 beer brewing history. 

Day 2 Tromso - Malangen Resort and Northern Lights Hunt
After breakfast, there is time to further explore Tromsø on your own. In the late afternoon, transfer to the luxurious Malangen Resort, where you will spend the next 2 nights. This modern, design hotel boasts spectacular fjord views, and is a great place to relax and enjoy days filled with activities and adventure. After dinner, join your experienced local guides as they take you on a chase for the best view of the stunning Northern Lights, with a stop for warming drinks beside the open fire at the resort’s own wilderness camp. 

Day 3 Malangen Resort: Husky Safari
A true Arctic adventure awaits you today. After breakfast, your guides will take you to the wilderness camp, the starting point of today’s dog sledding safari. After a safety briefing and driving lesson, head off into the Arctic wilderness and serene landscapes that surround the resort, on an unforgettable adventure. After the sledding,  enjoy lunch by the fire, before returning to the resort. Here, the panorama sauna by the fjord has been heated up ready for you! 2nd overnight at Malangen Resort. 

Day 4 Malangen Resort Snowshoeing and return to Tromso
After breakfast it's time to try one of Lapland's most ancient forms of traditional transport, on a guided snowshoeing trip. You will explore the beautiful landscapes, with a stop for hot drinks and snacks by the fire. In the afternoon, transfer from Malangen back to Tromsø. One final chance to explore the charming capital of the Arctic, with its blend of old wooden houses and modern architecture, small shops and cosy cafes, before your last adventure, a guided chase for the Northern Lights. Overnight in Tromso.
