Northern Lights Tromso

Aurora husky visit
In the evening the excursion bus picks you up in the centre of Tromso for a Aurora husky visit to Tromso Wilderness Centre, located at the Kvaloya island outside Tromso. The Aurora camp has a great location for viewing the northern lights, and you will also visit the dog yard.

The trip includes transfers and a traditional evening meal served in a lavvo (Sami tent).

DAY 2 – Evening Northern Lights Trip and overnight in a Sami tent
Time to relax and explore the Arctic town of Tromso before you join the Northern Lights trip in the evening. The excursion bus picks you up in the centre of Tromso for an adventurous Northern Lights trip in the Tamok valley. Due to the geographical location the climate is drier and colder than in Tromso, thus offering a maximum chance of seeing the amazing Northern Lights.

The trip includes transfers, a traditional, hot meal and social time by the open fire in the Sami tent. Also included: insulated body suit, warm shoes, gloves, head wear & head lamp. English speaking guide.

What to bring: Comfortable shoes, warm and windproof clothing (special clothing will be provided).

Overnight in Sami tent
You will sleep in warm winter sleeping bags on top of reindeer skins.  Staying here is very social as you can expect to meet other guests from all over the world. The lavvu has a capacity of 12 guests all together but you will have your own sleeping berth. The temperature might get below zero but your sleeping bag will keep you warm.

The trip includes warm sleeping bag, breakfast
