*While we cannot guarantee the visibility of natural phenomena like the Northern Lights, we have included four evening experiences to increase your chances of seeing them. Factors like magnetic activity, the sun’s position, and the cloud coverage can affect the visibility of the Northern Lights, but our varied evening activities aim to maximize your opportunities to witness this amazing display.


Day 1

Upon arrival, proceed to taxi or bus toward Tromsø. After checking in with your Quality hotel, you can explore Tromsø independently. There are plenty of places and attractions one should explore, but we recommend you to start your independent city tour by exploring the historical center of this city.

Day 2

You will have the opportunity to get to know Sami, the indigenous people of the north, and their culture. You will be able to join an enjoyable reindeer sledding, taste Sami food, learn about specific artifacts unique to their culture, and hear stories and the traditional Sami song, the joik.

When you return to your hotel, you can spend a couple of hours exploring Tromsø independently. You will be amazed by how lively and hospitable with many small restaurants and cafes, as well as shops and smiling people.

Past six o’clock, get ready for the new adventure where you will be hunting for northern lights. Aurora Borealis on a minibus will be offering you a personal experience where you will be traveling in a minibus with local knowledge and years of experience when it comes to searching and photographing northern lights. The minibus will be used as a shelter and a base to find thermal winter suits, hot drinks, lefse, and sweet snacks. There will be a high focus on night-time and taking pictures of northern lights, so remember to bring your camera.

Day 3

Go on a silent and peaceful Arctic cruise around Tromsø fjord aboard a hybrid-electric catamaran. This half-day sightseeing trip is the perfect combo to discover the wildlife, scenery, and fishing traditions of the Tromsø region.

We start this Tromsø fjord tour at 8 am in the unique Arctic winter morning light. Admire the skyline as we cruise past Tromsø Island and landmarks like the Arctic Cathedral. You will get the best views of Tromsø city and the surrounding mountains from the seaside and have wonderful photo opportunities from the catamaran’s multi-level decks. You can also sit back and enjoy the fantastic views of the Arctic scenery from the heated lounges with panoramic windows. Enjoy some food or drinks from our onboard café while our friendly crew shares stories about the history and wildlife of the area.

The dog sledding trips will give you a fantastic opportunity to experience Northern Lights. You will drive the dog sled by yourself as you explore the snowy landscapes and through the Vass valley, which is an uninhabited forest surrounded by mountains
Upon arrival at the camp, you’ll receive appropriate clothes for the occasion, such as outdoor clothes and shoes to keep you warm during your stay, and instructions on how to drive a dog sled by professionals.  You will be driving in pairs, with one driver and one passenger on each sled, with an opportunity to switch places halfway through the trip. The road ahead will be at a distance of 10-12km, and you will be on the sled for 1.5-2 hours.
Overnight: wooden cabin.

Day 4

You will have the opportunity to explore the majestic Lyngen Alps with a local guide on this scenic and safe Snowmobile Safari where you see most gorgeous nature. The area of the Lyngen Alps provides some of the most mesmerizing scenery in Norway. Throughout the tour, safety is of utmost importance as we will follow approved and established trails. The guide will give an explanation on how to drive the snowmobile. There will be two guests on each snowmobile, who may change seats halfway through the trip.
You will make several stops during our journey. This trip focuses on sightseeing, taking photos and enjoying the incredible scenery of mountains, fjords and forests. During the stops, the guide will tell interesting facts and stories. Once we’re back at the camp, freshly made fish soup will be served (vegetarian options are available on request when booking) with baked bread.
Important: in order to drive the snowmobile you have to own driving licence.
We have another option for morning tour for those who does not want to go on snowmobile: ice fishing and snowshoe walking tour.
This will include snowshoe walking to the frozen lake, drilling holes in the ice, fishing and tasting the self-caught fish which will be grilled on a bonfire. You will be brought to the camp where you’ll receive thermal suits, gloves, boots and hats for warmth. We will have a short ride to the frozen lake before the snowshoe equipment will be put on. Then we will walk out into the winter scenery. Sit back and relax as you try to catch lots of trout and char as you enjoy a hot cup of cocoa. The fish that you caught will be either prepared on the spot or at the camp in the Sami lavvu.
After you return to hotel, take a short rest and get ready to the beautiful Northern Lights cruise. Seeing the Northern Lights from the sea on a boat is an incredible opportunity and an unforgettable experience. The different places you will visit on this cruise should provide plenty of different views of the sky and offer several opportunities to see the Aurora Borealis.
