Discover Tromsø, the Arctic Capital, and its spectacular surroundings. On this tour enjoy 1 night in Tromso, 1 night in an amazing Glamping Tent outside town, and 2 nights on beautiful and remote Sommarøy Island. Enjoy an exhilarating dog sled safari and a guided hunt for the Northern Lights, as well as plenty of time to explore both the delights of the town, and the island's quiet charms. 

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 -  Camp North: Aurora Glamping and Husky Safari 
After breakfast,  transfer to Camp North, where luxurious tents and a stunning natural setting are waiting for you. Later today, enjoy a wonderful and fun Husky Safari in the pristine winter landscape, while watching for the Northern Lights which may unfold above you – an unforgettable experience. Enjoy a warm and traditional meal in cosy surroundings, in the resort's charming dining room with a design inspired by a traditional Sami tent, before you retire to your tent, where you can continue to search the arctic night skies for the Northern Lights, from the comfort of your own bed. Each tent is extremely well insulated and has a stove to keep you cosy. Large wall and roof windows face north, so you can lie back and gaze skywards in peace, quiet and comfort. 

Day 3 Camp North - Sommarøy Island: Northern Light Hunt 
After breakfast, join your local guide on a scenic drive from Camp North to the picturesque island of Sommarøy. On the way, your driver will tell you all about the region's history, culture and rich wildlife. On arrival on the island, check into the Sommarøy Arctic Hotel, where a hot lunch awaits you in the hotel’s restaurant. Then relax and enjoy the hotel's lovely surroundings. After dinner, a local guide will take you to the nearby Aurora Camp, where you will spend the evening searching for the fabled Aurora, and listening to stories about life on the island, warming up in front of the fireplace.

Day 4 Sommarøy Island: Day at Leisure
Today, time to explore the stunning island of Sommarøy. Perhaps stroll on one of the white sandy beaches, or relax in the hotel's sauna. Lunch and dinner will be served at the hotel’s restaurant. After dinner, time for one look for the Northern Lights from the hotel's grounds.
