Tromsø and Northern Lights Husky

Tromsø is the capital of Northern Norway and the centre of many of our northern lights holidays in Norway. It offers culture, history & great northern lights excursions.

Overview

Experience the Magic of Tromsø and the capital of Arctic Norway. Many of our northern lights holidays start or finish in Tromsø as this main transport hub for the region. 

Flying  into or out of Tromsø is impressive as you fly over the islands and between the snow capped mountains. Tromsø centre is just a short transfer from the airport (15mins) and the hotels are close to or on the quayside in the very centre of Tromsø.

Tromsø is rich in culture and history. Admire the scenery from the view point at Mount Storsteinen, enjoy a concert at the Arctic Cathedral or indulge in local history, culture and nature at Tromsø museum. 

Tromsø is directly under the Northern Lights activity corridor and there are numerous northern lights activities so get out there and explore this wonderful region.  Our recommendations include a northern lights photography course with a local professional and a two day (one night) husky expedition in the glorious mountains around Tromsø which we have included in this holiday.

Highlights of this holiday
Tromsø is a hive of activity and the overnight husky is one of the best available.
