Full description

Malangen Resort is located 65 km south from the popular northern city of Tromso and has become a big hit with our guests. It comprises of a stylish hotel complete with chic and spacious rooms, restaurant, lounge area, reception and bar. The sea-view apartments and modern cabins, all with fjord view are just a short walk away offering spacious accommodation ideal for families or friends travelling together. One of the biggest attractions is wilderness centre Camp Nikka where the Northern Light excursion takes place and the often the starting place for many activities. Set a 15 minute walk from the hotel, this is a great place from which to keep watch for the aurora, around a campfire at a wooden lavvu with hot snacks and drinks available.

This inclusive break includes return transfers between Tromso airport and Malangen (approximately 75 minutes), and after checking in enjoy a welcome drink of hot chocolate and mintuu, a Scandinavian specialty. The next few days allows you plenty of time to relax as well as join some thrilling winter activities.

One of the highlights is the Northern Light Watch which starts in the evening at 21.30 hours; included is a briefing about this natural phenomenon and a guided trip to Camp Nikka, dependent on aurora viewing conditions at the time where you can sit around an open fire to keep warm, enjoy a tasty snacks and wait with anticipation for the lights to appear. Once back at the hotel the guides continue to keep watch and should a display occur, opt to be woken with a magical Sami song so that you can dash outside and see the dancing display for yourself; sightings this far north in such a remote location are often spectacular.

Also included in this package are a dog sledding safari, snowshoe trek and sami storytelling, offering an authentic and unforgettable experience, with full instructions and winter clothing included for the activities. There are also optional activities you can choose to add to your itinerary (subject to availability) with snowmobiling (suitable for adults only), nordic skiing in the forest, fat bike rental available and the possibility to for a private sauna and Jacuzzi session with wonderful views over the fjord and mountains. There is also a public time (2 hours) for guests to use the sauna free of charge.
