Full description

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 has everything for an arctic break, whether it’s for 1 night or several.

Then head out of town 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. The location of the lodge is stunning, with far reaching views of the mountains and fjords from the panoramic windows in the comfortable lounge area. The Lodge has only 9 rooms with high quality furnishings throughout and offers great personal service and attention to detail. From the Lodge there are several winter excursions which can be pre-booked, as well as a Relax area with sauna and Jacuzzi. The remote setting away from city lights means you can see the aurora should it make an appearance, without having to venture far from the Lodge.

There are two itinerary options which depart on a Wednesday – a 5 night or 7 night break combining nights in Tromso and then at Lyngen Experience Lodge.

Itinerary & Accommodation

5 night Itinerary

Day 1 (Wednesday): arrive in Tromso

Fly direct from London Gatwick to Tromso arriving in the evening. Make your way by the airport coach to the city centre hotel (payable locally). Enjoy the nightlife with excellent restaurants and bars to choose from before staying overnight at Hotel Clarion Edge on breakfast basis.

Day 2: Tromso - Lyngen Alps

Free time in the morning to visit Tromso’s many attractions such as the Arctic Cathedral; Polaria Arctic aquarium; Polar Museum; cable car to Fjellstua for spectacular views; Nordnorsk Kunstmuseum and even its own brewery. At 4pm take the express ferry which takes 75 minutes (payable locally - approximately £30 per person one-way) to Nord-Lenangen. You will be met and transferred a short distance to Lyngen Experience Lodge. Check-in and get to know the Lodge, your base for three nights on full board basis.

Days 3-4: Winter adventures

With a relaxed and cosy atmosphere the Lodge is a great place to unwind in front of the fireplace and enjoy the winter scenery with the Lyngen Alps close by. But no winter break is complete without experiencing some of the wonderful activities available from the Lodge. During the day you can choose between dog sledding (5 hours), snowmobiling (3 hours), snowshoe walk (90 minutes) and a reindeer sledding and Sami experience (5 hours). In the evening there is an Aurora walking trek (2 hours) and snowmobile sled ride (90 minutes) taking into the wilderness in search for the dancing lights. In January there is also a Whale safari in the fjords heading to where the whales have been spotted, also enjoying the magnificent scenery along the way. All activities are optional at additional cost.

Day 5: Lyngen - Tromso

The day is free at the Lodge, perhaps finding time to join another excursion if available before taking the express boat at 6pm to Tromso. On arrival make your way to the Clarion Edge for overnight stay.

Day 6: depart Tromso

The day in Tromso is free to explore further or if you still want some adventure there are many excursions available with enough time to take the evening flight back to London. From the city centre take the regular airport coach service (payable locally) to the airport.

Notes

The 7-night itinerary includes one extra night in Tromso at the beginning of the holiday, meaning 1 extra full day in the city to visit the attractions and embark on winter activities. Plus one additional day at Lyngen Experience Lodge to enjoy the peaceful surrounds before taking the earlier express boat back to Tromso for the last night.
