Tromsø is situated in the Northernmost reaches of Norway, and as such, can experience a climate of considerable extremes during the winter season. The winter period is characterized by cold temperatures, limited daylight hours, snowfall, and due to its coastal position can even be hit by warmer temperatures, leading to intermittent rainfall even during peak winter season. For those seeking to bask in the splendor of the Northern Lights while indulging in winter pursuits, the ideal months to plan a visit is from January to March, with December also being a viable option.

Day 2

Dog Sledding and Private Aurora Tour

In the morning you will head out of the city to take part in some dog sledding – you will get to learn how to mush with the team of dogs and take them out for a run with the stunning fjords as a backdrop. You will stop for lunch before then making your way back to Tromso in the afternoon.

Enjoy an early dinner locally before you head out on a private aurora tour – this time around you will be taken out with a private guide to chase the northern lights!

Day 3

Snowmobiling in the Lyngen Alps

Get ready for an unforgettable adventure on your trip to Tromso! This morning, hop on a snowmobile and head out on a thrilling tour in the stunning Lyngen Alps, just an hour’s drive from Tromso. You’ll get to enjoy 1-1.5 hours of exhilarating snowmobiling in stunning scenery, followed by a delicious lunch before returning to the city.

In the evening, keep your schedule free, just in case you haven’t yet had the opportunity to see the spectacular Northern Lights or the weather didn’t cooperate the previous night. If you’ve already witnessed the Aurora Borealis, explore the city further with a visit to the Arctic Cathedral or treat your taste buds to a mouthwatering meal at one of Tromso’s popular restaurants.

Day 4

Head home or explore further afield

Today you will make your way back home but there are plenty of other places to explore. Perhaps you might like to extend your stay and head over the border to Finland? Or maybe you might like head down to Narvik and onwards to the Icehotel in Sweden? Maybe the cold is all a bit too much and a couple of nights in the country’s capital in a luxury hotel would be better suited (though it can be just as cold in Oslo)!? Speak to your Adventure Artist on the possibilities and options that are open to you.
