Overview

Combine city and wilderness on this short break in Northern Norway, 350 km above the Arctic Circle. Spend two nights in Tromso a compact city offering big adventures and a warm atmosphere as well as three nights in the majestic Lyngen Alps. Against a stunningly scenic backdrop enjoy winter activities, relax in boutique accommodation and watch out for the northern lights.

With a wealth of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars, plenty of shopping opportunities and city attractions, a host of thrilling winter activities and options to chase the northern lights, Tromso offers a fantastic gateway to exploring the wider region, which on this break focuses on the Lyngen Alps

From the city travel by express boat to Nord-Lenangen, near the Lyngen Alps. You will be met and transferred to Lyngen Experience Lodge where you will be well looked after by Reidun Nilsen and her team. Choose from a selection of winter activities, which can be pre-booked and find time to relax in the sauna and Jacuzzi and soak up the scenery from the delightful lounge area. The remote setting away from city lights also means you'll be ideally positioned to see the aurora borealis should they appear.

Optional Activities

Snowmobiling and husky sledding are well-established favourites, but you can also learn about local culture on a reindeer sledding and Sami experience. In January you can choose to join a whale safari in the fjords searching for humpback and orca as well as enjoying the magnificent scenery from the water.

Accommodation

We have based the two nights in Tromso at Clarion Hotel The Edge. However, with a wide choice of accommodation available, we can change this to a property to suit your personal preference.

Three nights are spent at Lyngen Experience Lodge located on the edge of a fjord against a mountain backdrop. Great personal service and attention to detail compliment the scenic location which can be enjoyed from the large panoramic windows in the lounge area. There are only nine rooms at the lodge furnished to a high standard. Guests can enjoy seasonal food prepared from local ingredients and there is a bar.
