Experience the silence of the Arctic in Northern Norway on this unique trip which combines nights in a fabulous hotel and a stay on a secluded island in a charming Nordic sea cabin. Snowshoe by sparkling fjords, hunt for the magical aurora by electric Tesla X, and head out to sea to search for orcas and humpback whales on the hybrid-electric, Brim Explorer.
Day 1 | Arrive in Northern Norway
Arrive in Norway's lively city of Tromso and transfer to your hotel where you will stay for three nights. In the evening, travel along the Arctic roads in a zero-emission, electric Tesla X car. Your driver and guide will travel to where the dazzling northern lights may be visible.
Day 2 | Snowshoe Hike & Northern Lights Cruise
This morning, travel by Tesla Model X to the mountains to enjoy a snowshoe hike surrounded by beautiful Arctic scenery. Return to Tromso for lunch and spend the afternoon at leisure. Perhaps head to Polaria, Tromso's wild and wonderful museum focussed on all things Arctic. In the evening meet at Tromso harbour for a northern lights cruise. Enjoy a three-course meal on board the new hybrid-electric Brim Explorer.
Day 3 | Silent Whale Watching
Today, sail in silence aboard the Brim Explorer, a non-polluting catamaran to search for Orcas and Humpback whales feeding in the icy waters. You will arrive in time to enjoy the few hours of polar daylight that the Tromsø winter season gives. On the way to the whale watching area, admire breath-taking views of the Tromsø fjords and frozen landscapes from the hybrid-electric boat.
Day 4 | Tromso Sight Seeing & Ferry To Vengsoy
Spend the morning at leisure in Tromso. Perhaps take a trip on the cable car to experience incredible views of the city. Why not head to the fabulous Fjellstua restaurant where you can take in the breathtaking views while enjoying a delicious local meal, or select a lighter lunch from the cafe. Later transfer to Bellvik and take the ferry to Vengsoy. Check into the beautiful Vengsoy Rorbuer sea lodge for a two-night stay.
Day 5 | Nordic Sea Lodge
This morning, relax and enjoy your surroundings from the comfort of your luxuriously cosy lodge. Perhaps book an optional excursion with hosts Maria and Nils- Jorgen, who offer a wealth of knowledge in the best hiking trails, fishing spots and places to spot spectacular sea life. After dark, be sure to keep a look out for the northern lights swirling overhead from the heated hot tub on the outside deck.
Day 6 | Departure Day
Enjoy a morning at leisure in the lodge. Later in the afternoon, take the ferry back to Bellvik and transfer back to Tromso airport for your departure plans.
