Day 1 | Arrive in Tromsø

Arrive in Norway's northernmost hub of Tromsø, a surprisingly lively place. The setting is glorious, on an island surrounded by mountains, and the city is home to several "world’s most northerly” descriptions – botanic gardens, cathedral, university, brewery... and traffic lights! Transfer to your city centre hotel for a three-night stay. After dinner, relax and take a short stroll in the city to the Arctic Cathedral. Image credit Christian Roth Christensen / Visitnorway.com

In the evening, embark on a midnight sun safari. Drive to the fjords and see the famous sights, spot birds, animals and amazing mountain formations.

Day 5 | Lake Blåvatnet

Visit beautiful Blåvatnet, an intense blue coloured lake that stands in stark contrast to the steep mountains in the background. Getting there is an easy hike that suits all abilities. After a short drive of 25 minutes there is a walk of 1-1.5 hours. Most of the walk is in relatively gentle and flat terrain. The last stretchinvolves climbing over larger stones. There is hot food, tea, coffee and water served on the trip.
