NORTHERN LIGHTS ALARM DURING THE CRUISE!
We want to take you to the best places in search of the Northern Lights. Lapland, Northern Norway and Tromso are widely regarded as some of the best places on earth to witness the awe inspiring natural phenomenon.
On this holiday through the northern part of the spectacular Norwegian Fjords, several hundred kilometers inside the Arctic Circle, there are exciting activities, unbelievable scenery and some of the best possibilities to see the Northern Lights. Snowmobiles, huskies and the top of continental Europe (The North Cape) all feature on this short cruise.
Day 1 - Tromso
Hotel Bryggen - Tromso
Hotel Bryggen is practically next to the airport bus in the centre of Tromso and is situated on the quay side in Tromso harbour. Relax in the rooftop jacuzzi with views across the harbour to the spectacular Arctic Cathedral. Hotel Bryggen has recently been refurbished and is one of Northern Norways leading hotels. Tromso is also the gateway to Northern Norway and the launch pad for many of our Norway northern lights holidays.
Fly from the UK to Tromso (the capital of Northern Norway) and stay in the centrally located Hotel Bryggen. The centre of Tromso is a short transfer from the airport, and your hotel is just 50m from the departure point of your Hurtigruten cruise.
Depending on your arrival there may be some time for an evening Northern Lights activity.
Day 2 - Tromso
A day at leisure or some daytime activities before your evening photography course and northern lights chase across Northern Norway.
Northern Lights Photography Course - 8hrs
It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or more experienced photographer. The groups are small so our professional photographers in Tromso are here to teach you the basics, or more advanced techniques of night time photography. All you need to bring along is an SLR camera, tripod, good shoes and thick socks! You will be provided with a light meal, hot drinks and professional guides. This activity includes a photography work shop before heading into the wilderness in search of the northern lights.
