Scandic Ishavshotel won the Certificate of Excellence from the world's leading review website, which honours hotels & accommodations that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Your Destination

Tromsø is situated in the centre of the Northern Lights zone and is, therefore, among the best places on earth to observe this natural phenomenon that has been drawing visitors for decades. 

Gateway to the Arctic and the capital of northern Norway, Tromsø also has many cultural sights and excellent restaurants guaranteeing you an exciting stay. Visitors to Tromsø are often surprised to find such a vibrant and cosmopolitan city so far north – here you are a staggering 320 km inside the Arctic Circle!

Tromsø is the home to the world’s northernmost University, Beer brewery, Cathedral, Glassblowing hut, Botanical Garden and Electronic Music Festival. The city is surrounded by snow-topped peaks and glass-like lakes, providing spectacular scenery and great skiing, with evenings often bathed in the glow of the Northern Lights.

In wintertime, rides in reindeer-driven sleighs, dog sledding, ice fishing and snowmobile trips followed by a traditional Sami meal in a lavvu or Sami tent will provide life-long memories.

Day 2: Arrival into Tromsø - Begin Your 4-Night Tour

Arrival at the airport. Transfer by taxi (included) from the Airport to your hotel in the city centre.

Tonight you set off by bus from Tromsø to chase the Northern Lights. Where you head depends on the latest Aurora and weather forecasts. The experienced guides will find the best photo stop with excellent conditions and a scenic backdrop. They are also professional photographers and will help you with your camera settings so you can take your own photos.

After two or more hours, you will drive to one of the exclusive AuroraCamps. The three camps each have two comfortable lavvus (Samitents) and toilet facilities. You will then divide into two smaller groups (with max. 20 guests per group), each with their own lavvu and English speaking guide. You will then leave the decision of which camp you go to as late as possible so you can see where the Northern Lights are dancing.

Hot drinks will be served and you will have the opportunity to grill your own supper on an open fire. Warm winter clothes and tripods are available. Of course, viewing this the Northern Lights isn't guaranteed since they are a natural phenomenon, but the guides promise to use all their experience to maximise your chances of a successful chase!
