4 Night Winter Break in Tromsø

From £1816 pp

What You'll Do

Discover northern Norway in the winter, a magical landscape that boasts unique experiences such husky sledding, snowmobiling and searching for the majestic Northern Lights.

Your adventure begins when you arrive in Tromsø, where you’ll be picked up by your driver and taken directly to your hotel to relax and refresh. From your base, you’ll explore the Lyngen Alps on husky safaris and get to know the polar landscape in a way that’s been practiced for thousands of years, experience the thrill of a snowmobile excursion along an old ice fishing track, and, weather permitting, take part in a little more local heritage on an ice fishing expedition.

Of course, you’ll also join expert guides in hunting for the magical northern lights, as you leave the lights of Tromsø behind and head in to the wilderness for a true bucket list experience.

During your stay you will have plenty of time to relax in a sauna and wander the beautiful city known as the “Paris of the North”, before you head home after a Norwegian adventure sure to live long in the memory.

Your Local Host:

Ingrid

My name is Ingrid and I was born and raised in the west coast of Norway – in the middle of majestic mountains and deep fjords.

I myself will always prefer the less crowded places where I can connect with nature but at the same time with the comfort of a hot shower and a great meal.
