Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Tromsø. Meet your private driver at the airport and head to your hotel in the heart of Tromsø. The rest of the day is free for you to unwind after your flight and explore the surrounding sights.

  • Meet your guide for a private walking tour of Tromsø, including a visit to the Polar Museum to hear stories of Arctic explorers. In the evening, you’ll board your private catamaran and sail through the fjords in search of the northern lights.

  • Leave the city behind and enter the Arctic wilderness around Alta. After a short flight, you’ll arrive at your hotel via taxi and spend the rest of the day relaxing in the natural landscape. In the evening, try to stay awake to spot the northern lights from your bedroom’s glass ceiling.

  • Spend the day unwinding at your hotel. Alternatively, you can board a boat and head out into the icy Arctic waters to help catch king crabs. In the evening, mount a snowmobile for a guided ride into the wilderness. This is another great opportunity to spot the northern lights.

  • Explore the scenery of the region in a more traditional way — a husky sled. Your personal musher will navigate your team of huskies across the snowy tundra and take you along parts of the Finnmarksløpet route: the world’s northernmost husky-sled race.

  • Take a short taxi ride to the airport for your flight home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
