Overview

This fantastic short break combines the beautiful, historic and vibrant city of Tromso, with the stunning and remote Malangen Resort, set in natural surroundings away from city lights, optimising aurora watching potential. Malangen’s superb collection of accommodation and a great selection of optional winter activities at both locations are a winning combination.

Tromso sits 350km above the Arctic Circle and is the largest city in northern Norway. The city centre is an endearing mix of old and new from restored wooden houses to striking modern architecture, the distinctive Arctic Cathedral probably the most famous landmark. Located on the small island of Tromsoya, the city limits spread out onto the mainland, connected by bridge and tunnel.

Combine the city with the remote Malangen Resort, which comprises a stylish hotel complete with chic and spacious rooms, reception area, restaurant and bar in the main hotel building, sea-view apartments just a few metres away and a selection of  deluxe cabins either on the fjords edge or located higher up with great views overlooking the fjord, and a mountainside wilderness centre called Camp Nikka set just a short walk from the hotel, which is used to keep watch for the aurora around a campfire.

With a good selection of optional activities such as a guided northern lights watch, snowmobiling, husky sledding, nordic skiing, snowshoe walk, Sami Storytelling and the convenient transfers between Malangen and Tromso twice a day –  this short break offers a fantastic experience to northern Norway and aurora sightings this far north in such a remote location are often spectacular.
