Itinerary

Day 01                                Tromsø

Tromsø is the world’s most northern university town and the largest city in the Nordic countries north of the Arctic Circle. The city lies between the peaks of the Lyngen Alps and the sea, and combines wild scenery with urban life. Check in at the hotel.

Day 02                                Tromsø & Midnight Sun adventure by Zodiac

 Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and get ready for a day of exploring and adventure. Tromsø has many sights to offer, like the Arctic Cathedral and the aerial tramway Fjellheisen, which offers spectacular views of the city, the surrounding fjords and mountains. While in Tromsø, a visit to Polaria is also highly recommended. Polaria is a science and adventure centre, where you can watch a panorama film about Spitsbergen and visit the aquarium with arctic wildlife and live seals. Open from 10:00 to 17:00 every day.

This evening we have included a treat, a midnight sun adventure by boat. You will leave Tromso harbor and set for Gåsvær. While enjoying the midnight sun, you will travel through Kvalsundet, where you might see nise (harbor porpoises), seals and maybe a sea eagle. Gåsvær is an idyllic little island out in the open sea, and can offer both white coral sand, and a beautiful little church. You will have the opportunity to go ashore, stretch your legs a bit and explore the island on your own. With the fresh sea air, the remoteness of the island and the midnight sun, it will be an unforgettable experience!
