Your Adventure —
Fly to Tromsø (via Oslo) and transfer via airport shuttle bus to the Clarion collection Hotel With. Depending on your flight arrival time, you could take the cable car to Storsteinen on Mount Floya for an Arctic inspired feast at the Fjellstau Café, an excellent spot for a dramatic view, whatever the season. Alternatively, see if there is a midnight sun concert at the Arctic Cathedral.
2nd Day - Northern Lights Search
Today is free for your optional excursions but there are also plenty of other attractions and activities in this vibrant University city. This evening head out for your Northern Lights Search tour.
This trip offers the best chance you can get to spot the Aurora. Your local guide picks you up from the centre of Tromsø and, depending on the level of cloud cover, heads north to a spot where the Atlantic is on one side of you and the Lyngen Alps on the other, or East as far as the Finnish border. The emphasis is firmly on hunting Aurora and where they are most likely to occur, so the trip can last for anything up to 8 hours. During the evening you move location two or three times to provide different backdrop settings and to avoid any light pollution.
Today is free for your optional excursions. Try a thrilling snowmobile or husky safari; go whale watching and reindeer spotting or take a gentle harbor cruise. A stroll through the city reveals museums, cafés and a cable car that takes you to the top of Storsteinen for stunning panoramic views of the surroundings.
Enjoy a leisurely morning. Why not grab lunch in one of the many fish restaurants (we recommend Emma’s Kitchen or Fiskekompaniet for a treat). Transfer back to the airport with ‘Flybussen’ in time for your return flight home.
