Tromsø may be well inside the Arctic Circle in the far north of Norway, but it’s a surprisingly lively place with a wealth of activities and experiences. The setting, on an island surrounded by mountains, is glorious. This winter escape allows time to explore the city with it quaint wooden buildings and includes thrilling Arctic adventures.
Day 1 | Arrive in Tromso
Fly to Tromsø and transfer to the fabulous Clarion Hotel The Edge. Take some time to wander around the city in the evening before enjoying dinner in one of the restaurants on offer.
Day 2 | Explore Tromso & Evening Aurora Chase
Enjoy a leisurely morning and after breakfast take the short bus ride (number 26) to Fjellheisen, the cable car which runs from Solliveien in Tromsdalen up to the mountain ledge Storsteinen (421m above sea level). Here you will have a wonderful birds-eye view of the city. Return to the city and spend some time at leisure before heading away from the bright lights of the city by minibus to a basecamp location with experienced guides in search of the aurora.
Day 3 | Reindeer Evening
After a day exploring Tromso, bid farewell to your hotel room for the night to embark on a magical reindeer evening. Transfer into the wild and be met by some friendly reindeer. Sit back and enjoy breath-taking surroundings as the reindeer pull you along on your very own sled. Return to camp and learn about the Sami people while tucking into a delicious hot meal, before entering your traditional Sami tent for the night, fit with warm lights and reindeer hides.
Day 4 | Silent Whale Watching
Meet at Tromsø Harbour at 7:45am. You will travel out on an non-polluting catamaran to where the whales are in time to enjoy the short hours of daylight.
