    What was the most memorable part of your holiday? Seeing humpback whales and orcas quite close to the zodiac boats. Northern Lights seen on several occasions but not as bright as we have seen on previous holidays. Enjoyed visit to distillery and Huskie sledge ride

  • The Northern Lights made spectacular appearances

    A review of Tromsø - Northern Lights City Break by Phil Barnett-Davies
    25 November 2022

    I would like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thanks. We had an absolutely superb time in Tromso; hotel and excursions were spot on. As you are probably aware it was for my wife's 50th birthday, and it was one to remember. Also, the Northern Lights made spectacular appearances, especially on the catamaran cruise. They even gave a show at 6am as we were boarding our flight home. You must

  • All I had to do was show up!

    A review of Tromsø, Norway - Northern Lights Sailing and Whale Watching Expedition by Elizabeth Parrington
    23 November 2022

    Every detail was thought of and all trips were seamless meaning all I had to do was show up! I was even given the right clothes to wear. Safety on board was paramount and the zodiac boat guys clearly knew what they were doing - transfers on and off were so easy even when a little choppy. The zodiacs were only launched when the conditions were safe to do so and when it was too choppy the

    captain made every effort to ensure we saw the orcas. Trips out were excellent - seeing Tromso from the snowy cable car and being treated to a showing of the Aurora on our first night was incredible. Then our guide telling us about the whales the following day in time for their arrival enhanced the experience, including how the zodiacs would be conducted to ensure the whales would not be stressed by our presence. To witness the majesty, strength and grace of so many humpback whales so close was an emotional and unforgettable moment. The following day we saw orcas, again extraordinary to be so close to a pod "dancing" in the water by us. The trip to the Aurora Distillery and the associated NATO bunker was another highlight - what a location! Transferring by zodiac in still waters under the stars in a snow covered fjord was another "pinch me" moment. The distillery was fascinating to me - stunning building, beautifully presented with great hosts. And the whisky and gin was great too! The visit to the small village of Hamnnes gave an interesting insight into the past lives (and current) of its inhabitants - the little museum gave an interesting view of its history - we particularly liked the 2 thumbed mittens! The dried fish was an eye opener and showed how small villages still play a part in its production. Dog sledging - another great experience - we were given top quality warm suits to wear and were taking out by very experienced handlers in a beautiful environment - the animals were well cared for as we were on return when we were treated to cake and coffee heated on an open fire - fabulous! Food on board - absolutely first class - from the delicious breakfasts, to excellent lunches and dinners, I wasn't expecting dishes such as chateaubriand to be on the menu! The staff could not have been more helpful. It all sounds too good to be true - but it was THAT amazing!
