Autumn in Norway marks the return of dark skies and Auroral displays. During this 3-night break, you’ll be on the lookout for the Northern Lights in a variety of ways and against the dramatic fjordic landscapes. Imagine telling your envious friends back home you spotted such a display from your glass-roofed Crystal Lavvo?

What's included?


  • Transfers: return airport transfers
  • Accommodation: 2 nights at Clarion Hotel The Edge and 1 night in a Crystal Lavvo
  • Meals: 3 breakfasts, 1 dinner and 1 light dinner
  • The following activities are included in the holiday price: guided RIB adventure*, overnight in a Crystal Lavvo and guided Aurora husky hike or a visit to the husky centre and Aurora Camp** (order subject to change)
  • Fully qualified guides and instructors during activities

Travelling to Tromsø and the Lyngen Peninsula during autumn, not only provides the chance to witness the stunning colours of autumn but also provides exceptional Aurora viewing opportunities. This short break combines two nights in cosmopolitan Tromsø with a night in a glass-roofed Crystal Lavvo (traditional tepee) and provides some unforgettable autumn Aurora hunting experiences.  You’ll also take to the fjords for a wildlife watching safari which, for those travelling in November, may provide the chance to do some whale watching too. 

Your first and final nights in Norway are spent in Tromsø, which is a vibrant Arctic city, surrounded by islands, fjords and mountains. There is so much to do here (we can help you extend your holiday of course) but we strongly recommend a trip in the Storsteinen cable car to take in the incredible views. The city is alive with bars, cafes and restaurants and it is awash with Arctic history and heritage so there is much to see and enjoy during your stay.

The second night of your stay will see you sleeping in one of the remarkable Crystal Lavvos, located amid the stunning Lyngen Alps. Far from light pollution, these glass-roofed tepees, offer stunning views of the night sky and are ideal for some duvet-based Aurora hunting!

From Tromso, we also take you out of the city lights in search of the Aurora, but we combine this with a wonderful husky encounter. Depending on your departure date you’ll either meet the eager huskies for an Aurora hike or will enjoy a visit to the sled dogs before a Northern Lights campfire. We also offer several Northern Lights activity upgrades, including an Aurora husky sledding experience (on wheels or snow, depending on your departure date), Northern Lights cruise and Northern Lights camp - please see our 'Personalise' section for further details.

Of course, we also show off this area’s surroundings during the day, and an ideal way to soak up the landscape is from the water. As standard, this holiday offers an exceptional RIB wildlife boat tour which is an unforgettable and very exciting way to see marine life and enjoy the views. If you travel in November, then it may also be possible to see whales, as the migration season should bring them to this area.

This three-night short break offers an incredible array of experiences in a short space of time. You’ll enjoy a cosmopolitan city, wildlife encounters, amazing Aurora accommodation and the chance to hopefully see the Northern Lights in all their glory.

* For those travelling between the 10th September and 29th October, you will enjoy a guided RIB wildlife safari as part of your agenda. For those travelling in November, you will enjoy a guided RIB whale watching tour. Please be aware that the whale safari will require a 6 am departure and will be longer in duration.

** Aurora husky hike will operate until the 20th October and the husky centre and Aurora Camp will operate from the 25th October onwards. Both activities are subject to availability.

Key facts

Duration:3 nights
Make an enquiry
  • Tromsø is a cosmopolitan city located in Northern Norway. It has a vibrant mix of local restaurants, interesting attractions and picturesque Norwegian landscapes. We would recommend booking an early flight in order to maximise your time here for there is simply loads to enjoy.

    After arriving at the airport, you will be transferred to your hotel which has stunning views of the harbour and is ideally located for exploring the city. For dinner tonight, why not head into town to try some of the local cafés, bars and restaurants, there are plenty of fantastic options close by; it'll give you a great chance to explore the city, which despite its location north of the Arctic Circle, comes alive during the evening.

    Included Meals:  None
  • After breakfast, you will join your local guide for a RIB (rigid inflatable boat) wildlife adventure exploring the archipelago of islands around Tromsø. The boat is able to pick up great speed as it takes you out to sea. You will be taken out to sea and treated to some truly dramatic and breath-taking scenery with incredible views of not just the islands but the city and the mountainous Arctic landscapes. There is a variety of wildlife in this area, including seals and various seabirds. Your trip will include a stop at Hella, where you will enjoy hot drinks and snacks. The pick-up point for this activity is a short walk away from your hotel and the activity will last for approximately 3 hours, including transfers.

    For those travelling in November, it may also be an opportunity to spot various whale species, however, this can never be guaranteed. The whale safari will begin at 6 am and will need to cover greater distances to hopefully find the migration route of these majestic animals. It is certainly worth the journey. Orcas and humpbacks are common in Norwegian waters. The pick-up point for this activity is a short walk away from your hotel and the activity will last for approximately 6-8 hours, including transfers.

    Both the RIB wildlife adventure and whale safari will return to Tromsø at approximately 2 pm and you will have some free time to explore the city until your transfer to the Crystal Lavvos this afternoon at 5:30 pm. Your luggage can be left securely at your hotel, after you have checked out this morning and you can pick it up later this afternoon, prior to your transfer.

    At approximately 5:30 pm, you will leave the city behind and head for the majestic Lyngen Peninsula. The region is characterised by steep-sided mountains which slope sharply down to the enchanting fjords offering a new panorama around every corner. You will be spending the night in a Crystal Lavvo, located right in the heart of these stunning natural surroundings. The glass roof offers unobstructed views of the night sky whilst the warming fire will keep you cosy during your stay (you will be shown how to keep this fire going during the night, if you prefer to stay in a nearby bedroom then this can be arranged at the time of booking)

    Before you head to bed, you will enjoy a home-cooked dinner, before an informative Aurora workshop and some tips on how to capture the lights on camera. The lengthening nights and the remote location of the Crystal Lavvos are a recipe for captivating Aurora displays. Hopefully, you’ll have the opportunity to put your photography skills to the test.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Dinner
  • Enjoy a special breakfast overlooking the untouched nature of the Lyngen Peninsula. It is a final opportunity to embrace the captivating fjord landscapes before returning to Tromsø.

    The day is then yours to spend at your leisure. Explore the vibrant Arctic city which has a number of fascinating local attractions.

    Polaria is the world’s most northerly aquarium and a visit here offers a fascinating insight into the marine life which inhabits the Arctic waters. In addition to Polaria, you may also wish to visit the Arctic Cathedral which stands out due to its impressive architectural design. Despite its location north of the Arctic Circle, the city also has some fantastic restaurants offering exquisite local cuisine. For recommendations please speak to our Travel Experts.

    Whatever you do, don’t forget to take the 4-minute aerial tram ride to the spectacular vantage point at Storsteinen. Breathtaking? Jaw-dropping? Spectacular? None do the views justice.

    During the evening, you will be taken to the Tromsø Wilderness Centre to meet some playful and eager huskies. The dogs will be just as excited to meet you as you are to make their acquaintance and after the introductions, you will venture into the gathering darkness for a thrilling hike in search of the Aurora.

    The dogs will no doubt lead the way as you leave the artificial light of the city behind and locate a suitable site to build a campfire. Once settled you can enjoy a traditional, hot meal which has been prepared over the crackling fire and gaze up at the starry night skies. Part of the excitement is in the sense of anticipation that the Northern Lights may appear and we hope that your efforts will be rewarded. The pick-up point for this activity is a short walk from your hotel. You will be out for approximately 5 hours, including transfers.

    If travelling from the 25th October onwards your trip will include a tour of the wilderness centre rather than the walk as there is a strong chance that there will be snow on the ground. The tour includes meeting any delightful puppies before enjoying a traditional dinner by a roaring fire. The centre has its own Aurora camp which is ideally located away from the city lights and following dinner, you will gaze up at the night sky for any flickers of colour. The pick-up point for this activity is a short walk from your hotel. You will be out for approximately 4 hours, including transfers.

    If you would like to upgrade your activity tonight, you can instead choose to take part in a Northern Lights husky sledding experience, by cart or sled, depending on your departure date. We also offer a Northern Lights cruise and Northern Lights camp activities - please see our 'Personalise' section for full details.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Dinner
  • Following breakfast, it will be time to leave the colourful autumn landscapes of Tromsø behind and you will be transferred to the airport in preparation for your flight home. For those looking to extend their stay and continue the search for the Aurora, then there are a number of Northern Lights-based activities which can be found in our 'Personalise' section.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast

The lavvos are located in the forest behind Green Gold Villa and insulated bathrooms with hot water are only a few metres away. The lavvos are wooden constructions but have a glass roof, so that each night you can lie back and admire the Arctic sky and, hopefully, the Aurora. Each lavvo has a double bed or two single beds and a wooden stove, which you will be taught how to use, to ensure that you are warm and comfortable during your stay.

Option 2: Double Room in the villa

Each room in the villa offers a king-sized bed and a wardrobe for clothing storage. Hot drinks and kitchen facilities are all provided in the shared kitchen of the villa. Hairdryers are provided in each bedroom. Two bathrooms are shared between four rooms.

In order to give us the best possible chance to do this, we ask that if you or any member of your party has any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday or has any special requirements, that you tell us at the time of enquiry or booking. You must also promptly advise us if any medical condition or disability which may affect your holiday develops after your booking has been confirmed. You may need to provide a doctor’s note and proof of insurance in some cases as the health and safety of our clients is absolutely paramount.

In providing this information you are allowing us to work with our expert local partners to ensure that your whole party can enjoy the holiday. By letting us know in advance we can discreetly work with you to adapt any part of the holiday which may potentially be challenging. Being able to prepare for this in advance makes an incredible difference to what we can offer and minimises any impact on your party and the rest of the group.

Unfortunately, if you choose not to share this information with us in advance then it may limit some or all of the itinerary you have booked, and we cannot be held accountable for any additional costs or missed activities resulting from this.


If you are pregnant at the time of booking your holiday or you discover you are pregnant prior to your departure, firstly – congratulations! Secondly – please tell us as soon as possible. This situation does arise, and we are able to advise you both from our own first-hand experience and from discussing this at length with our expert local partners who have experience in this area. The more notice you can give us the better, in order to suggest any adaptions to the itinerary you have booked which will reduce the risk to both mother and baby. Please contact our customer service team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.


Insurance is not included in your holiday, but it is a pre-requisite to travelling with us. You will need to ensure that you have cover for all the activities that you will be participating in during your holiday.

It is extremely important that you take out a suitable travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Plans do sometimes change, and you will need this policy should you need to cancel your holiday.

Additional activities can be booked locally in almost all our destinations. However, as per our booking conditions, we cannot be held responsible for any injury or loss incurred through participation in activities which are booked at your destination outside of our holiday itinerary (see our ‘Terms and Conditions’ for further details).

When arranging any such activity please always ensure that safety is your primary concern. In some of our destinations, you can borrow or hire equipment for use in your free time.

You do so entirely at your own risk. You must ensure that you are properly prepared, have the necessary equipment and knowledge (maps, etc) and ensure that where applicable, you follow marked routes. We recommend discussing your plans with the local teams who will be able to advise on the most suitable options for you.

Always let the reception/guide know where you are planning to go and take a torch and mobile phone (with the hotel/guide’s phone number stored). It is also a good idea to leave your contact number and the time you expect to return to the hotel should the hotel need to contact you.


If your trip includes car hire the named driver must have a credit card registered in their name which they can present when they collect their car along with their driving licence, as a deposit will be held on the credit card.  Please see your trip dossier for full details.

Our clients’ safety is at the centre of everything we do, and our operations team continually assesses and monitors the destinations we feature. We carry out thorough risk assessments and work closely with all of our suppliers to continually follow best practice. For up to date travel advice the UK government offers its Travel Aware website as well as the advice detailed below.


On your documentation, we will confirm your flight schedule. Sometimes the flight number, routing and timings might change prior to your departure. If the change is classed as a significant change then we will contact you to discuss this. Please see our booking conditions for details.

Flight schedule changes can impact on your pre and post-holiday travel arrangements if these have been booked separately to your holiday. We strongly recommend that you do not book transport (such as trains or transfers), car parking or non-connecting flights to the departure point for your holiday until you have received your final confirmed travel times when your final travel documents are issued. We are not responsible for the effect of any schedule change on your pre or post travel arrangements. We strongly recommend that you do not purchase non-flexible or non-refundable tickets to avoid cancellation and penalty charges.


If you have chosen to book your own flights, then you will need to wait until we confirm to you that the holiday departure has met the minimum numbers required to run (if applicable to your chosen holiday). Once the holiday is guaranteed to run, you will be informed and you can then make your arrangements.

If transfers are included in your holiday, please ensure that any potential flights will be met by our standard transfers (speak to one of our Travel Experts for advice) otherwise private transfer supplements may be applicable. Once your flights are booked, please send us a copy of your detailed flight itinerary.

Please be aware that most tickets are non-refundable in the case of cancellation. For this reason, we strongly advise you check the rules of the ticket and check the limitations of your cancellation insurance before booking. We cannot be held liable, in the unlikely eventuality that we should be forced to cancel or amend your trip, for losses incurred relating to any flight booking you have made.


We receive all updates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) with regards to travel advice and we always ensure that we follow this advice in our operations. The FCO issues travel advisories for countries based on a very wide range of factors. They may provide notification about things as simple as a football match and crowds, or they may go so far as to advise against all travel to a region. We ask all our clients to refer to the relevant Travel Advice by Country for the destinations they are visiting in order to make an informed decision on the safety of the destination based on the details provided. It also provides vital information regarding entry requirements, embassy information, local laws and customs as well as specific safety and health. Guests should take responsibility for keeping themselves up to date with this advice. Please also ensure that, if you are transiting through another country, you have read the advice and meet the entry requirements for that destination too.

The FCO travel advice is applicable to British Passport Holders. Most governments will issue their own travel advice for a region and, if you are not a UK resident then you can find some helpful links below:

Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/ 

New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade http://www.safetravel.govt.nz/   

Canadian Consular Affairs Bureau http://voyage.gc.ca/

The U.S. Bureau of Consular Affairs http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html

If the FCO deems that there is an unacceptable level of risk for UK citizens then, together with the government, they may issue an advisory against all travel to a region or country. If such an advisory is published, then we will act accordingly, and this may require the cancellation, curtailment or amendment of a holiday itinerary. These decisions are made on the basis of ensuring our clients’ safety and will affect all clients on holiday, regardless of their nationality.

If one of our local experts suggests an amendment due to a situation which develops locally then we may also take the decision to amend an itinerary appropriately.

If we have to cancel your holiday prior to departure you will be offered the option of an alternative trip (where any price difference will either be refunded to or covered by you) or a full refund of the monies paid.

If we have to curtail a holiday, then you will be refunded for any costs for the elements we have been unable to deliver, where we have been able to secure a refund from our suppliers. If we must reroute a holiday, then any basis for refund is determined on a case by case basis and dependent on whether the central holiday experience was provided or not.

Travelling in autumn requires a degree of flexibility. This period is a time of change in the far North and the arrival of the first snowfall can be very unpredictable. 

Autumn activities: the daytime activities included in this holiday may be amended to accommodate the arrival of winter's first snows (an unpredictable science!). Walks may become snowshoe treks and guests may need to be flexible in their approach. This is unlikely to be the case in September but changes become more likely in October and November. Your Aurora hunting activities should be unaffected.

If cold weather clothing is required and will make your stay more comfortable then this will be included and issued to you upon arrival. If you would like to borrow any additional equipment then please just speak to one of the local guides. For more information please see the trip dossier.

Minimum age

The recommended minimum age for participation in our itinerary is 12 years old, however, for some activities and transfers, you may be joined by other guests and this may include some of a younger age than stated. Any younger participants will be fully supervised and the guides will ensure that their participation takes place only if the activities will be unaffected.

Very few hotels have a minimum age and there may be families staying at them with younger children, especially during the holiday periods. We do have some itineraries and destinations which are guaranteed to be adult-only, so if this is important to you please speak to one of our Travel Experts.

To drive a snowmobile, you must have a full driving licence and be over 18 years old.
