Northern Lights Tour

Wednesday 22 January 2020

Tromsø, The North Cape and Kirkenes snow hotel (or Gamme Cabin)

Join an Arctic adventure which travels to remote regions along the dramatic coastline and to the most northerly part of Norway. Although our journey will be at the same latitude as Siberia and Alaska, the influence of the Gulf Stream creates the longest ice–free polar coast. The entire duration of this tour is spent above the Arctic Circle, increasing your chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis. During your stay it is possible to choose several fantastic activities. Visit the Russian border, try the Husky safari, enjoy a taste of Sami life or join the enormously popular Northern Lights Safari (more activities can be added on request).
