Visit Tromsø, the capital of the Arctic, surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands. Hunt for the magical Northern Lights, experience the Sami culture and explore the Nordic wilderness during a traditional husky sledding.
Situated at nearly 70° north, there are frequent sightings of the aurora borealis among the surrounding islands, fjords and mountains. In the summer, instead of hunting for the Northern Lights, seek the midnight sun. Ask us about the trips we can offer.
