Experience the unique Artic winter, where the sun never sets, on a five-day trip to the charming Norwegian city of Tromsø and its surrounding area. From the airport, you’ll be taken to your hotel, which is located in the very centre of Tromsø. The Clarion Collection Hotel Aurora is perched on the harbour-front, right between the Polar Museum and the Cathedral. A modern and elegant building, it features stunning views of the bay and the majestic mountains in the background. In addition to a comfortable room, guests can enjoy such great facilities here as an outdoor Jacuzzi, a fitness centre as well as a typical Nordic sauna. The following day you’ll be taken to the Tromsø Friluftsenter, where you’ll be able to experience the beauty of the Artic and the wonderful local wildlife, such as seals and sea eagles. The following day you’ll be taken to the secluded Malangen Brygger, where a welcome drink awaits. This stunning place is nestled on the waters of the fjord that carries the same name as the resort. Here you can enjoy truly unique vistas of the snow-capped mountains and the sea, while staying in a luxurious and spacious room. See the stunning Arctic nature in its true winter element, and you might even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights that dance across the clear night sky in a truly spectacular display.
In between your adventures, you can enjoy delicious meals at the restaurant, which serves a delicious blend of Norwegian and French cuisine. The Arctic Circle is a truly unique place on the planet and as you return to Tromsø and the airport, we guarantee that your mind will be full of amazing holiday memories that you will treasure for a lifetime.
Settled on a small island surrounded by wild fjords and mountains, which have been carved out by the winds and the snow over millions of years, Tromsø, one of the largest cities in the Arctic Circle, is like no other place on this earth.
Stroll through the cosy little park of Kongeparken, past the old cathedral and down to the harbour-front. The city was once used as a base by explorers like Roald Amundsen and Fritjof Nansen. Visit the Polar Museum for the fascinating history behind their expeditions and how Tromsø has been an important Arctic settlement for centuries. See the northernmost botanical gardens in the world or spend a few hours in the Northern Norway Art Museum for artistic impressions and interpretations of the wild landscape that cradles the city.
If you want to experience the Arctic for yourself, then start by taking the cable car known as Fjellheisen to the top of Mount Storsteinen. Here you can gaze across the numerous white peaks and fjords that surround the city, and of course, from this viewing platform you also get the perfect panoramic view of the city below. On your descent from the mountain, visit the modernist Arctic Cathedral, before seeking out a boat tour that will take you beyond the city and out onto the deep blue sea. Spot a humpback whale or any of the other local marine animals that thrive here and witness nature at its most serene.
