What you’ll be doing


Arrival into Norway

Welcome to the Arctic Circle and Northern Norway. After our flight, we transfer to the Thon Polar hotel which is located central in Tromso. We settle in for an action packed few days before having a welcome dinner this evening.

  • Dinner included.

Husky Sled Ride & Aurora Borealis Chase

After breakfast we will meet our four legged friends and of course spend some time with the Huskey’s! We will then head out on a husky sled ride into the Norwegian wilderness. After we will be provided with a hearty meal of Bidos, a typical Sami stew prepared with reindeer meat, broth and vegetables.

This evening we will join a local expert and set out in search of the magical experience of witnessing the Northern Lights – we just need a clear sky on our side! Northern Norway is one of the few places on earth that offer this opportunity and one that will definitely be remembered for a lifetime.

  • Breakfast included and a meal after the huskey sled ride.

Arctic Fjord Cruise and Tour of Tromso

This morning we will embark on an Arctic Fjord Cruise that takes us around Tromsø seeing the mountains, fjords and islands that surround this city. We will have views of the open ocean, hopefully opportunities to see some wildlife as well as visiting a local fishing village where we will step ashore, explore the fish racks and learn about the fishing traditions. Whilst on board, the guides will share stories and knowledge about local culture, history and nature while on the lookout for wildlife.

This afternoon, we join a local guide and embark on a panoramic tour that will take us through the centre of Tromsø. We will witness a charming blend of old and new, where modest wooden houses sit alongside the modern architecture of this university city. Our guide will give us a true sense of the city who carries the nickname “Paris of the North.” We will drive round the forest-covered island of Tromsø. Cross the Tromsø Bridge which connects Tromsø Island to the mainland, and see the Arctic Cathedral reveal itself on the way over. We will ascend by cable car to the top of Mount Storsteinen to enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the city and its impressive surroundings (cost of cable car not included).

  • Breakfast included.

Snowshoeing, Reindeer and Sami culture

After breakfast, we combine the breathtaking views from the top of the “Fjellheisen” mountain with an adventurous snowshoe hike! On this 3-hour guided tour, we will go on a 1-hour snowshoe hike on the snowy mountain trails of the Fjellheisen mountain. From the ridge, we will get to enjoy the scenic views of Tromsø city and its surrounding mountains and sea. We will meet our guide and travel by gondola up the mountain, 421m above sea level. Our guide will accompany us along the way to make sure we feel comfortable and confident walking on snowshoes. We will end the hike back at the upper gondola station where we will get to enjoy a hot drink and a muffin inside the Fjellheisen restaurant. Difficulty level: Moderate.

Later this afternoon, we will enjoy a 25-30 minute sleigh ride as the reindeers guide you around the valley and along the coast. Afterwards, we will have the opportunity to feed 300 of these magnificent animals before entering the gamme for a hot traditional meal cooked over the fire. Finish the day by gathering around the fire to listen to Sami history, stories and joiking (Sami songs).

  • Breakfast included and a meal during the Sami experience.
