Day-by-Day

Day 1
Arrival in Tromso

Welcome to the Gateway to the Arctic - the amazing city of Tromso

Your driver meets you at the airport and takes to your hotel for check-in. The rest of the day is free so you can start exploring the magnificent city center on your own, dine in one of the local restaurants or take a good rest in your comfortable room.

No meals included.

Day 2
Northern Lights Seeking

Today you have a free afternoon. In the evening you meet your driver who transfers you to one of the most picturesque areas of Northern Norway - at the wilderness center of Camp Tamok.

At first, you have short instructions on safety and driving. Then you are invited for an exciting northern activity - snowmobile Northern Lights Seeking group tour. Amazing mountain scenery and fantastic winter landscapes accompanied with magnificent views of the Northern Lights - this is a trip you will remember for years to come!

The tour includes transfers, warm winter suits and boots, helmet, a hot meal and a hot drink.

Day 3
Northern Lights Cruise

Today after breakfast you have the morning and afternoon at leisure. Later we invite you to a magical Northern Lights group cruise which gives you a unique chance of witnessing the Northern Lights. Primetime for watching the Nordic Lights is between 9 pm and midnight, so your group tour starts late in the evening. Northern Lights seeking from the seaside can be especially exciting as the cruise takes place at night-time away from the city lights. Light dinner is served on board.

After the cruise, you are transferred back to your hotel.

  • Please, note: the cruise is available from October 10 to March 31

Breakfast and dinner are included.

Day 4
Whales & Fjords

Following breakfast prepare for one more spectacular group tour - whale safari.

During the winter season, large whales often come close to the coast of Northern Norway. You and your team sail out on a rigid-inflatable boat you and meet them just outside of Tromso!

The combination of the Northern winter and fjords mixed with beautiful northern wildlife (including whales, orcas, seals and sea eagles!) is a truly amazing experience. Don't forget your camera for memorable shots of the whale safari!

After the tour, you are transferred back to your hotel.

  • Please, note: the tour is available from October 21 to February 10. Outside of this timeframe it is replaced with self-drive dog sledding.

Breakfast is included.

Day 5
Reindeer Ride & Sami Culture

Following breakfast, you are invited for a reindeer group safari through a fairy-tale winter forest.

After a 20-30 minutes sleigh, prepare to get acquainted with the culture of Sami, the indigenous people of the North. You meet Sami people, taste some typical Sami food, see Sami artifacts and hear stories about their lifestyle as well as joiks, traditional Sami songs. You also learn why reindeer sleigh is an important part of the experience as the oldest known form of transport in the north and central part of the Sami culture. 

Following the tour, you return to your hotel. Transfers before and after the tour are provided.

  • Please, note: reindeer safari is available from November 1 to April 30.
