Discover Tromso, the Arctic Capital, and its spectacular surroundings. Enjoy an exhilarating Husky Adventure, Snowmobile Safari and a hunt for the Northern Lights, as well as plenty of time on your own to explore the delights of the town.

Tromso 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, Tromso enjoys a moderate climate, with the average temperature in January being -4. 

Day 1 Tromso Arrival – Northern Lights Chase
Shuttle bus transfer from Tromso airport to hotel and check in to the Scandic Ishavshotel or similar for 3 nights. Tromso is the principal city of Northern Norway with plenty of museums focusing on regional art, Sami culture and history, and polar science. Afternoon at leisure, perhaps time for an optional activity such as a short trip by cable car to Storsteinen Mountain, where you can enjoy the view of Tromso and surroundings. This evening your Northern Lights Chase by bus takes you away from the city lights. A professional photographer will be there to help you with your own camera settings.

Day 2 Tromso – Northern Lights Husky Adventure
Day at leisure for optional activities before an evening Husky Adventure excursion by bus. Upon arrival at the wilderness camp, you´ll receive Winter outerwear to keep you warm during your excursion and instructions on how to drive a dog sledding team by experienced mushers. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each sled, with the opportunity to switch places half-way. Drive the dog sled through the beautiful Vass valley - an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains. The trails have a distance of 10-12km, and you will be on the sled for 1.5-2 hours. With some luck, you may witness the Northern Lights while driving the sled. At the end of the trail you will return to the wilderness camp for a hot meal and coffee in the cosy dining lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent). Return to your hotel by bus.

Day 3 Tromso – Northern Lights Snowmobile Safari
Day at leisure for optional activities. For your evening snowmobile excursion, transfer by bus to the wilderness camp. On arrival, you'll receive Winter outerwear to keep you warm during your excursion and a thorough safety introduction and practical demonstration. You don´t need any previous snowmobiling skills, all you need is normal physical condition and a valid driver’s licence. You will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger on each snowmobile, with the opportunity to switch places during the trip. Embark upon a ride past scenic mountains and through the dramatic snow-covered Finn valley. The trail has a distance of 30km, and you´ll be on the snowmobile for 2-2.5 hours. Due to the dramatic topography, a reduced speed is maintained during parts of the tour. The top point of the trail is the ice-covered Lake Finn. With some luck, you may witness the Northern Lights while out on the trails. Return to the wilderness camp for a hot meal and coffee in the cosy dining lavvu. Return to your hotel by bus.
