Northern Lights Holidays - Norway
Northern Lights Holidays
The Northern Lights are undoubtedly the greatest winter wonder of Scandinavia, and scientists say that this winter should provide the best displays for many years! All our winter destintions offer excellent chances of seeing them if weather conditions are right. Tromso is a beautiful city, and justly popular for a Northern Lights break. Most people add an extra night or two as there is so much to see and do, with a wide range of excursions and activities available.
For a two-centre break Tromso can be combined with Kirkenes on the Russian border, or with a scenic rail journey through the Arctic wilderness to Sweden's famous Ice Hotel. Longer tours and tailor-made holidays allow even more possibilities!
Tromso is a lively city located around 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, with superb restaurants, museums and stunning Arctic Cathedral. Winter city breaks offer excellent chances of seeing the Northern Lights, with a wide range of excursions and activities available.
Two-centre holidays combining Tromso with Kirkenes or with Sweden's Ice Hotel are available, and Tromso is also a highlight of our 7-night 'Land of the Northern Lights' tour.
Land of the Northern Lights Tour
Our 7-night 'Land of the Northern Lights' tour follows a similar route to that taken by Joanna Lumley in the amazing BBC TV programme. The tour starts with a scenic rail journey across the Arctic Circle, includes a couple of nights in the beautiful Lofoten Islands, and finishes in Tromso - where Joanna Lumley found the Northern Lights. This holiday offers an unforgettable winter experience and has been our most popular winter holiday ever.
Tromso and Kirkenes
A wonderful combination - the lovely city of Tromso and the border town of Kirkenes, with its unspoilt wilderness surroundings and superb activities. In Kirkenes we offer a choice of accommodation, with a central hotel, a comfortable guesthouse in a beautiful location, and the option of spending a night in the Kirkenes Snow Hotel. This tour includes three nights in Tromso and two in Kirkenes, with a short flight between. It is also possible to take a two-night Hurtigruten cruise between centres if preferred.
