Tromso, located above the Arctic Circle is a great winter destination to enjoy a sleuth of activities and maybe even a beer at the northernmost brewery in the world.
During the winter season the Aurora Borealis can be seen dancing all over the sky or why not enjoy a whale watching boat tour or meet the locals.....the reindeer. Spend 4 days exploring this magical arctic city with its urban and rural scene unlike nothing else. Great package to combine with other Northern Norway destinations such as Kirkenes or the Lofoten Islands.

Dates: Jauary 3 - March 31, 2020

Day 01 Arrive Tromso, Norway

Independently booked flights. Airport transfer Tromso airport to central downtown. Spend the remaining day exploring Tromso on your own. 

Accommodations at Thon Hotel Polar, Tromso or similar for 3 nights

Day 02 Reindeer/Sami Adventure & Northern Light Safari 

A fun day ahead with unique local experiences. About 30 minutes away from Tromso City is a Reindeer camp where you can feed a herd of about 200 reindeer. After some explanation about reindeer sledding, you go on a short sled ride. For most of the year the reindeer live wild and the animals are at the camp for a few months over winter to protect them from predators and harsh conditions. Keeping the sled ride short helps protect the reindeer from being overworked. Please note that reindeer sledding is subject to snow conditions. 

Inside a gamme (a traditional Sami hut) warm drinks and a traditional Sami meal will be cooked over the fire and then served. Afterwards you are invited into a lavvo (Sami tent) to gather round the fire and listen to stories about Sami culture, life as a reindeer herder and a joik (traditional Sami song).

Later this evening enjoy a small group Northern Lights tour. 

On this tour there is a high focus on night-time and Northern Lights photography, so remember to bring your camera. Increase your photography skills as your guide gives you good advice and help with camera settings and on how to take Aurora photos. 

The tour company will have thermal winter suits and tripods for free use during the safari. 
What to bring: Warm boots, hat, scarf and mittens.

Accommodations at Thon Hotel Polar, Tromso or similar

You are invited to come on board to take a close-up look at the feast.
