City-break | December holidays | January holidays | Northern Lights | November holidays | Short break | Winter

Seeing the Northern Lights is, for many, a true bucket list experience. And there are few better places on earth to see their kaleidoscopic displays than Norway's Arctic capital – Tromso. The aurora is at its most active from late autumn, through winter and into early spring, and can generally be seen best between 6pm and 2am, weather permitting, of course. Our popular short break, featured below, includes an aurora safari to a remote location, giving you a true taste of life in the Arctic. What's more, there's the chance to add on any number of optional excursions, which include everything from cultural tours and snowmobiling safaris to husky excursions and Northern Lights harbour cruises. Speak to our specialists for all the options available.



Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/Tromso

Fly from London Gatwick to Tromso and take an included airport shuttle transfer to your hotel. You'll then check in to the Clarion Hotel The Edge, located near the city's harbour. It's the perfect base for exploring Norway's 'Arctic capital' a city know not only for its wintery adventure and Northern Lights displays, but also for its outstanding food and nighttime entertainment – Tromso is home to more pubs per capita than any other city in Norway. 

Stay: Clarion Hotel The Edge (Superior)

Days 2-3
Tromso: optional excursions & included Northern Lights hunt

Over two days, you'll have the chance to head out of the city on a range of optional excursions, taking you between snow-capped peaks and plunging fjords on everything from snowmobiles and husky sleds to harbour cruises in search of whales (seasonal). And, on one evening, you'll head out on an included small-group aurora safari to in search of the magnificent natural phenomenon. The tour will depart Tromso by minibus, leaving the city in search of clear skies and escaping the light pollution. The locations you visit will depend on the weather forecast – your guides will search for the best spots to maximise your chances. Once you have found a suitable location and clear skies, your guide will serve hot beverages as you wait for the northern lights to occur. With luck, the northern lights may start flickering above in the sky, putting on an impressive show. Your guide can take photos which will be sent to you after the tour.

Day 4
Optional excursions & depart for UK

Depending on your flight home you may have time for one more optional excursion. So why not end your stay in style, with a thrilling husky safari deep into the Troms countryside? With winter clothes and full instruction included, you'll ride two to a sled, swapping half way to take turns mushing your team of eager dogs. It's a wonderfully evocative way to explore Northern Norway's frozen Arctic landscapes. Finally, at the end of a breathless day, it's time for your included shuttle transfer to the airport and your flight home.
