Nordic Experience says
About 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle in the northernmost part of Norway, Tromso is acknowledged as one of the best places in the world for seeing the Northern Lights.
For the ultimate view of nature’s most spectacular light show, we can arrange for you to head out into the wilderness where you can enjoy a variety of activities such as husky and snowmobile safaris, as well as having the best possible sighting if the Northern Lights are on display.
Even without them, Tromso is a great choice for a winter city break. Known as the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’, Tromso was the departure point for countless polar expeditions, and fascinating museums bear witness to many of these exploits.Other attractions include the stunning Arctic Cathedral, excellent restaurants, spectacular scenery, and a wide range of winter activities.
Our three-night Northern Lights Experience, for example, takes you close to the North Pole for the best chances of seeing the Aurora Borealis. Or head to Iceland on our four-night Glaciers and Waterfalls under the Northern Lights.
