Tromsø sits approximately 350km above the Arctic Circle. It is known as the ‘Capital of the Arctic’ and has much to offer visitors. There’s a fantastic culinary scene, some fascinating Arctic heritage and many local attractions to enjoy. Whilst the city is at the heart of the Aurora Zone, it is away from the city lights that the best displays are found and, as the city is surrounded by Arctic wilderness, you don’t have to travel far to witness some amazing Aurora displays.

To maximise your Northern Lights viewing potential, we have included three guided Aurora activities in this five-night break. You split your time between the city, an amazing Aurora Camp and the stunning island of Sommarøy and each offers its own Northern Lights appeal. 

From Tromsø you will hunt by minibus, allowing you to cover greater distances and outrun any localised cloud cover to hopefully capture a display.

A real Aurora hunting highlight, however, is a night of luxury glamping in a wilderness camp on the island of Kvaløya, roughly 40 minutes from Tromsø. The camp is set in dramatic natural surroundings and the deluxe tents have panoramic windows so if you are lucky, you may witness the Northern Lights from the comfort of your bed! During your stay, you will also enjoy a 40-minute dogsled safari for yet another unforgettable experience.

You will then spend two nights at a dedicated Aurora Camp on the stunning island of Sommarøy which has very little light pollution.

The island of Sommaroy will introduce you further to the dramatic scenery of Northern Norway. This fishing community retains its traditions and charm. We have left your time relatively free on the island so you can explore at your own pace. If you would like to include additional activities, please see the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page for more details.

  • Following your arrival at Tromsø Airport, you will be transferred to your hotel in the city. We would recommend getting an early flight if possible as the ‘Capital of the Arctic’ is a vibrant place and there is much to explore. The culinary scene here is great, so we recommend visiting a local restaurant and sampling some of the Arctic delicacies.

    Upon arrival, you will also receive your cold weather clothing, which will be delivered to the hotel.

    If you cannot wait to begin your search for the Northern Lights, a reindeer-pulled Aurora sleigh ride is perhaps the perfect introduction to this part of the world. Please see the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page for further details.

    Included Meals:  None
  • After breakfast, you will take a short transfer for a chance to engage in something more traditional (the transfer takes approximately 45 minutes. The meeting point is only a very short walk from your hotel.). Reindeer herding remains an integral part of Sámi culture, and today you will meet with a local herder at their camp. You will learn a great deal about the lives of the herders and their animals and there will also be the chance for you to feed the reindeer. A reindeer sleigh ride is also included (approximately 30 minutes and two people per sled). Lunch will be served in a lavvu (traditional tent) and tales will be told around a campfire. You will be out for around four to five hours in total.

    This evening, you will enjoy your first Northern Lights hunt via minibus. The mobility provided by the vehicle allows you to cover greater distances and hopefully escape any localised cloud cover. Your knowledgeable guide will determine where the best possible viewpoint might be, based on the weather and solar activity forecasts. Throughout, you should keep your eyes towards the northern skies for any flickers of colour as the Aurora can potentially appear at any moment. This activity lasts between five to seven hours in total and the pick-up location is only a short walk from your hotel.  

    If you would like to try Aurora hunting by boat, then it is possible for you to upgrade your minibus hunt for a Northern Lights dinner cruise (supplement applies). Please ask one of our Travel Experts for more information.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch
  • This morning you can enjoy breakfast at the hotel before checking out and securely storing your luggage at the hotel until your departure later in the afternoon.

    This morning and early afternoon, you will have some free time in Tromsø before being transferred to the remote wilderness camp for your Aurora glamping experience. You can go for a wander or, alternatively, book additional activities. Please see the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page for further details. (Please note that the cold weather clothes need to be returned to Tromso Outdoor today. It’s only a short walk from your hotel).

    The camp is approximately 40 minutes from Tromsø and is located in stunning natural surroundings on the island of Kvaløya, away from the lights of the city. It is ideal Aurora viewing territory and spending the night in such surroundings really is a privilege. The pick-up point for the transfer is only a short walk from the hotel.

    The adventures are not over for today, however, as you will explore the winter landscape during a dogsled safari. Huskies are synonymous with this part of the world and meeting the dogs is always a holiday highlight. Following on from a full safety briefing, your expert guide will lead the way on the trail, which will take you through the forest and towards the coastline. You will travel two people per sled (you can change drivers half way). You will be out for approximately 40 minutes.   

    Afterwards, you will enjoy a delicious dinner in the camp’s central cabin. Your hosts use local, seasonal ingredients in their food, so be prepared for some very tasty local treats. The warming fire creates a cosy atmosphere, but you should try and draw yourself away in order to keep a lookout for the Northern Lights, either outside or from your cosy tent.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Dinner
  • Following breakfast at the camp, you will depart on a guided scenic drive to the island of Sommarøy. Northern Norway is known for its stunning fjord landscapes which are simply jaw-dropping. Today you will follow the coastline, which is flanked by mountains, as your local guide imparts some of their local knowledge and you enjoy the views. The drive is approximately one hour in duration.

    After arriving on the island, there will be some free time for you to settle into your accommodation at the Arctic Hotel and explore the village. Sommarøy remains a strong fishing community and the thriving harbour is always a hive of activity and a fascinating place to visit. Lunch will be enjoyed at the hotel.

    If you would like to relax before your Aurora activity, then the hotel does have an outdoor hot tub with stunning views which you can add to your holiday. Please see the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page for full details.

    During the evening you will enjoy dinner in the restaurant before a visit to a nearby Aurora Camp with a local expert guide. Sommarøy has very limited light pollution, so should the conditions be favourable, you won’t have to venture very far to see a potential display. Your guide will use their local knowledge and experience to entertain you during the evening, and hopefully, your efforts will be rewarded. The duration of the activity is approximately five hours. Cold weather clothing will be provided for your time in Sommarøy, however boots are not included, therefore please make sure to bring your own along.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, before having the day free to explore the island of Sommarøy.

    Sommarøy has some beautiful beaches and these are particularly picturesque in winter when the sand can be covered in snow. There is a strong sense of community here and people are typically very happy to share information about life on the island with visitors.

    If you want to learn to more about the local community you can add an additional guided walk of Sommarøy to your holiday. The details of all the activities available can be found in the ‘Personalise’ section of the holiday page.

    During the evening, you will enjoy another meal in the hotel restaurant prior to your second, and final, Aurora Camp. Once again you will be accompanied by an expert guide who will lead you to the Aurora Camp. With a little luck, the conditions will be favourable and the Northern Lights will dance and bid you farewell. The duration of the activity is approximately five hours.

    Included Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
  • Following breakfast, you will be transferred* back to the airport in time for your flights home. If you would like to extend your stay then we can arrange this for you. Please contact one of our Travel Experts for further information.

    *Please Note: your return transfer is scheduled to leave Sommarøy at 9:00am or 2:30pm. If you require an earlier or later transfer, supplements will apply. Please contact one of our Travel Experts for more information.

Our pick

Northern Lights Dinner Cruise

From £156pp

Departing from the harbour in Tromsø, you will set out across the water on a catamaran in search of the Northern Lights. The boat is comfortable with a viewing deck and a heated lounge for you to enjoy as you set off slowly across the water. There is no artificial light pollution out at sea so the skies are dark for Aurora viewing, but you are still able to enjoy Tromsø from a wonderful new perspective as you look back at the illuminated city.

Dinner is a traditional Norwegian supper (usually fish based), served in the boat's indoor lounge, whilst you wait for the Northern Lights to hopefully appear in the dark skies above you.

The onboard guide’s knowledge about the city and its surroundings, as well as their many years of experience of the Northern Lights, will make for a very memorable experience.

Cold weather clothing is provided and the activity will last for around three hours in total.

Medical History and Advice

We want our holidays to be accessible as they can be and will do our best to accommodate any special requests and requirements where possible. We have a wide range of holidays and destinations and so our travel experts will help find the best holiday for you.

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.    


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.

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.

The UK Foreign Office Advice

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.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice

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

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 the 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.

Traveller Reviews

Our guide literally went the extra mile for us 03 January 2020 by Niall and Elspeth Weatherstone

We appreciated both the time in Tromso and in particular on Sommaroy which is a beautiful location to which we might return in summer. Our guide Magg of Northern Lights Tromso literally went the extra mile for us and drove nearly 400km return in search of the Lights. The scheduled 5 hour trip extended to 7 hours and was tiring but very much worth it.

It's been a trip of a lifetime!!! 15 March 2019 by Shelagh Smith

Thank you so much.  We did see the Northern Lights! Three nights, better ever night. Favourite place was glamping! I would have liked to be there two, not just one night. Sommaroy, Tromso, Copenhagen great. Today Oslo. I cannot thank all of you enough. I will remember this till the day I die!

Cannot praise you enough 14 March 2019 by Gerald and Lynda Rudd

We had a fantastic trip. Adventure. Experience. It was just amazing; your organisation was superb and your agents in Tromso were just great. All the trips were super and we saw the Northern Lights on two nights on the island stay.Cannot praise you enough.

Tromso – Northern Norway and Aurora Glamping 14 March 2019 by Gerry and Lynda Rudd

We have just returned from a trip / adventure / experience in Tromso. Your organisation was superb and everything worked really well. Trips and hotels were excellent and we managed to see the Northern Lights on the last 2 nights in Sommeroy. Thank you again.

Tromsø - Northern Norway and Aurora Glamping 06 January 2019 by Irene & Peter McLardy

I loved the glamping. There were only a small group of guests which made it a very intimate experience. The tents were fantastic and it was a lovely experience. It will be even better with running water available there soon. We may be a bit biased here as we saw an amazing display of Northern Lights while we were there.
