More about the trip:

If you want to try it all – but don't have a lot of time – then this northern lights short-break is the one for you. In the city of Tromso, Northern Norway, you will have the chance to race across the snowclad mountains driving your own dog sled, feel the adrenaline rush darting through the wilderness on a snowmobile and experience the magic of the northern lights on a guided tour to the best northern lights spots around.

All Nordic Visitor holidays can be customised and tailored to your needs, just fill in the customised booking form!


Day 1: Arrival in the Arctic Circle and Northern Lights Hunting

You will make your own way to Oslo airport (flights to Oslo are not included, find cheap flights in the search box on the left) where you will catch your flight to Tromso (flight to Tromso included).

In Tromso you will be met by a Nordic Visitor representative who will transfer you to your hotel in Tromso city centre.


Depending on your time of arrival, there will be some time to explore Tromso. Find out what to see in Tromso.

In the evening you will be taken on a Northern Lights Tour with a local guide. A meal and a hot drink will be served to you whilst waiting for the alluring northern lights.

The guide will have the local knowledge and experience to take you to the most likely spots for northern lights on that particular evening.

Day 2: Sami Traditions and Reindeer Sledding

After breakfast in Tromso, you will be picked up and driven towards Storfjord, just over 50 miles from Tromso. The views along the way are spectacular.


In Storfjord you will visit a traditional Sami farm, and have a go at reindeer sledding. After some hours out in the cold, a bowl of traditional Sami reindeer soup will be served up in the Lavvo.


You will spend the night in a hotel in beautiful Lyngsfjord.

dogsleighingDay 3: Dog Sledding in the Wilderness

Being pulled through the wintery scenery by a band of excited Husky dogs is one of the most fun and exhilarating experiences you will have.


Before setting off on this full-day tour of the Norwegian wilderness you will learn how to manage the sled and dogs so you can drive the sled yourself (if you prefer, you have the option to just tuck in amongst the warm reindeer skins on the passenger seat and enjoy the ride).


Guided by one of the most experienced dog sledders in Norway you will be taken through the Lyngen valley and into the highlands. Learn about the dogs and the local communities, but above all have the time of your life together with your band of dogs pulling the sled.


Spend another night in your hotel in Lyngsfjord.

Day 4: The Thrills of Snowmobiling

Have breakfast before leaving Lyngsfjord behind. But before returning to Tromso, a half-day snowmobile safari is on the agenda.


Back in Tromso and your hotel there, it is time for a romantic northern lights excursion on a horse-drawn sleigh. Sit back in the warm blankets and look up at the skies and - fingers crossed - the northern lights will make an appearance.


The sleigh-ride ends at an old farm, where you will learn more about old norwegian farming culture over a traditional Norwegian dinner, followed by coffee and cake in the Sami lavvo.

Spend your last night in your hotel in Tromso.

Day 5: Returning Home

Transfer to Tromso airport for your flight back to Oslo where you can connect to your next destination. (Tromso-Oslo included in price, onward flights not included)
