A three-night break in the city of Tromsø, one of the best places on earth to see the Northern Lights
Tromsø is situated right in the centre of the Northern Lights zone and is, therefore, among the best places on earth to observe this natural phenomenon. Gateway to the Arctic and the capital of northern Norway, Tromsø also has many cultural sights and excellent restaurants guaranteeing you an exciting stay.
Seeing the Northern Lights is a jaw-dropping and mystical experience. The lights are at their most frequent in late autumn, through winter and into early spring and can generally be seen best between 6pm and 2am. In order to maximise your chances of seeing the aurora, we recommend you avoid travelling during a full moon (your travel specialist will be able to advise you of the best dates). Also remember to wrap up warmly as it can get very cold!
This short break gives you a taste of the Arctic with the opportunity to add your own adventures with a choice of optional excursions including cultural tours, snowmobiling adventures and husky safaris.
Day 1 Tromsø
Fly from London Gatwick to Tromsø . Check in to Thon Tromso where you'll be based for the next three nights. The rest of the day will be yours to explore the town.
Day 2-3 Tromsø
After breakfast on days two and three of your trip you'll have plenty of opportunities to take one of the fantastic optional excursions on offer, including snowmobile safaris and Sami cultural tours, allowing you time to take in the breathtaking scenery of the beautiful Troms region, while experiencing a range of exciting winter time activities.
In the evenings, head out into the countryside in search of the aurora on an optional, guided Northern Lights excursion (not included).

After breakfast it’s time to say goodbye to Tromsø and fly back to Gatwick.
