Full Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Tromso

Today your trip begins as you arrive in Tromso and transfer to your hotel. Time permitting, this evening you may like to join an optional tour to get your first glimpse of the Northern Lights.

Today you can choose your own Arctic adventure from a selection of optional excursions. You may like to take a snowmobile safari, or ride on a sled pulled by huskies, before an evening admiring the Northern Lights.

Day 3: Narvik

After breakfast this morning you'll take the four-hour bus journey to Narvik, through the glacial valleys and fjords of the Troms region.

You may like to visit the Ofoten Museum, or take the cable car to the top of Narvikfjellet to enjoy the panoramic views of Ofotfjord.
