Itinerary Breakdown


Day 1: Tromsø

Arrive in Tromsø, affectionately described as the Paris of the North you’ll be met by one of our colleagues who will transfer you to your hotel to check in.

That afternoon you’ll be picked up and be taken on a private snowmobile safari. The Lyngen Alps are one of northern Norway’s premier winter wilderness playgrounds and this exhilarating snowmobile tour takes you from fjord to mountain – offering you the chance to experience the fantastic scenery here.

Your trip begins in easy terrain, following a well-established trail, allowing you time to get to grips with your machine. As the tour proceeds, you will also be exposed to the more exhilarating sides of snowmobiling as you follow the contours of the mountain and taking in the alpine landscape.

After the trip, you’ll be driven back to your hotel where you’ll have the evening to relax.

Northern Lights

Day 2: Tromsø

In the late morning, your guide and a private vehicle will come to pick you up and show you the city of Tromsø. During the tour you will visit the Arctic Cathedral, a highly rated architectural masterpiece built in 1965.

Continue to the Polar Museum, where the endeavours of many Norwegian explorers and hunters are showcased before spending the rest of the afternoon at leisure.

In the evening, you will visit the Mack Brewery. Here you will see how the world’s most northern brewery brews its beer and “arctic mineral water”.

Kirkenes is nestled in between the Varanger Fjord and the Russian border, serving as the most remote outpost of mainland Norway.

Once you’re back on the mainland, indulge yourself in a lovely King Crab Lunch.

You’ll then head back to your hotel where you’ll have a chance to explore the local surroundings or relax

Then, in the evening, we’ll arrange for you to go on a Northern Lights hunt. Whilst they can never be guaranteed you’re probably in one of the best places in the world to see the spectacular light show.
