The Paris of the North
Buckle up and get ready to chase the northern lights on this Epic (yes the capital ‘E’ was intentional – and quite necessary) arctic adventure in the ‘Paris of the North’ - Tromsø. Surrounded by chilly fjords and snow-capped peaks, this stunning city bills itself as Norway’s gateway to the Arctic and is one of the best places to spot Lady Aurora dancing her life away in the night sky. You’ll get the chance to take full advantage of this on an incredible Northern Lights sailing excursion along the beautiful arctic fjords. Then hit the town to explore the buzzing nightlife of this notoriously lively city that prides itself on having more pubs per capita than any other Norwegian town (oi oiiii). Sambucas not really your scene? No bother, Tromsø offers so much more. Say “howdy” to the seals at Polaria, ride a cable car up to the summit of Mount Storsteinen to take in views of the cityscape below, or choose between hundreds of hikes up the many surrounding peaks. Then cozy up next to a roaring fire with a hot chocolate or espresso at your choice of 2 (yes TWO) 4.5-star hotels. Where do we sign up?!
You and a lucky plus one will be treated to return flights from London to Tromsø, Norway.
Experience true Arctic luxury in your choice of 2 4.5-star hotels in the heart of this bustling beaut of a city. Up first is the Scandic Ishavshotel, located right by the Tromsø quayside. Not only does this hotel offer jaw dropping views of the quayside and fresh seafood at their onsite restaurant, but it also won the award for the best hotel brekkie 7 years in a row. This is included in your stay so you can see what all the fuss is about every single morning. Then we have the incredible Clarion Collection Hotel, centrally located just minutes away. Here you’ll be treated to panoramic views of the Tromsø harbour, sea and the stunning Arctic Cathedral. Storgatan with its selection of shops, restaurants and cafés is just around the corner and the amazing aerial tramway and historical Skansen area are all close by. You’ll also enjoy breakfast each morning along with a hefty discount at the neighbouring spa. Which would you choose?
You can’t possibly go to the self-proclaimed “best place in Norway to spot the Northern Lights” without having the chance to..well..spot the Northern Lights!

Cruise the picturesque Arctic Fjords guided by skippers and guides with years of first-hand experience in finding the best spots to view the lights. Tuck into complimentary light bites, espressos and endless premium teas as you bear witness to nature’s most spectacular light show. A memory you’ll never be able to “switch”off (get it?).
