Holiday Idea

Surrounded by nature, Tromso is the stepping-off point for unending Arctic adventure. Combine nights in the city searching for the northern lights after dark with a stay at the stunning Arctic Panorama Lodge - a remote retreat with just six cosy rooms, a fully-licensed bar, a roaring log fire, and large panoramic windows facing the fjords and mountains. Unwind in the quiet of the Arctic wilderness and enjoy dog sledding and whale watching with experienced guides.
