Snowmobile Safari & cabin stay
Snowmobile Safari & stay in an exotic Wilderness timber cabin
This is an optional activity, which you can add to your Northern Lights trip booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The overnight stay in the camp replaces one night at the hotel in Tromso, and does not add nights to the tour.
The add-on option will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.
The overnight package is connected to the Northern Lights trip with dog sledding or reindeer sledding, you will stay in the camp after the activity and go on the snowmobile safari after breakfast the following day.
