This tour takes you to Norway’s Lapland, north of the Arctic Circle. Tromsø is often called the Arctic Capital because it is one of the largest, northernmost cities in the world. There are many winter activities to be experienced with Tromsø as a base camp. In this package you have the opportunity to enjoy dog sledding, snowshoeing, wildlife safaris, reindeer sledding, and of course, Northern Lights hunting. There is room to add excursions like skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and more – just ask! With two nights in Oslo as well, this is the perfect package for an introduction to Norway in the winter.

This is a sample semi-independent itinerary. Travel will be independent with guided tours and activities along the way. Our Destination Specialists will work with you to create an itinerary to meet your preferences.

Oslo is a nature centric city, with wooded areas and natural experiences never far away.

Day 3Fly to Tromsø | Meals: B

After breakfast, transfer by train back to the airport for your flight to Tromsø. Upon arrival, board the airport bus for transfer into the city center. As the Capital of the Arctic, Tromsø has a lot to offer visitors, especially in the winter. From November to January it is the Polar Night, when the sun doesn’t get above the horizon. This makes Tromsø ideal for Northern Lights Hunting. The city itself has great places to visit as well, including the uniquely designed Arctic Cathedral, the Polaria Aquarium and Arctic Experience, and the Tromsø Cable Car to name a few. Overnight in Tromsø

Day 4Snowshoeing and Dog Sledding | Meals: B D

Today you will be picked up from a nearby hotel and taken outside of the city for an easy snowshoe hike through beautiful Norwegian nature. On the way back to Tromso, you’ll stop for local treats at a coffee shop with wonderful views of the fjords. This evening you will head back out of town to meet some Alaskan huskies who will be very excited to see you and take you on a sled ride. With you as a passenger, a professional guide will drive the sled through the frozen forest for approximately an hour-long ride. Hopefully, you will catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights while enjoying the stillness of the arctic winter. Afterward enjoy a hot meal and take some time to meet the dogs before heading back to Tromsø. Overnight in Tromsø

Day 5Boat Safari or Sami Culture | Meals: B

Or you might choose to try reindeer sledding and learn more about the Sámi culture. The Sámi are the native people of northern Norway, Sweden, and Finland and they have a unique culture and history that is closely tied to reindeer.
