A stunning Nordic escape between two waterfront Norwegian locations, including Northern Light-spotting and dog-sled ride - flights and transfers included

There are few phenomena that capture the imagination quite like the Northern Lights, and if you’re going to tick this heavenly light display off your bucket list, then there's really no better place to do it than the waterside Malangen Resort. With this five-night Norwegian break, split between Tromsø and the Malangen Peninsula, you’ll be able to fill up your Instragram feed with far more than just the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis.

Start your adventure with a two-night stay at Scandic Ishavshotel in Tromsø, which is set right by the quayside. You'll take part in a Northern Lights chase, for an unforgettable experience. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence holder serves an award-winning buffet breakfast each day, and offers fresh seafood and locally sourced meats on its restaurant’s menu over dinner. There’s also a relaxing bar on site, stocked with local beer, and guest rooms and pleasingly modern, with calming colour palettes that imbue the surrounding landscapes.

A scenic transfer by road to your next destination will provide a tantalising glimpse of some of Norway's finest landscapes as you travel on to Meistervik. Arriving at the waterside Malangen Brygger resort, an icy fjord sitting right on your doorstep and backed by jagged, snowcapped peaks will slip you swiftly into Scandinavian spirits. Unwind in one of the resort's open-air hot tubs before drying yourself off in the glass-fronted sauna which offers unrivalled views of the surrounding fjord. While here, you may be in for a chance to spot the Northern Lights. You’ll also explore the intrepid terrain with an unforgettable, three-hour dog-sled experience, and have your very own cabin to return back to after a day in the fresh Nordic air.


Good to know

Please be aware that the Northern Lights are a naturally occurring phenomenon, so whilst we hope you'll get to see them, we can't guarantee they'll oblige.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arriving at the airport in Tromsø, transfer to your Tromsø hotel for two nights, with breakfast. (transfer included)

Day 2: Spend the day here at leisure: in addition to lively cafes and world-class seafood restaurants, Tromsø offers an inspiring cultural scene of museums and art galleries. You will also find a brewery, the Arctic Cathedral, glassblower studios and a botanical garden - all nestled in amongst majestic mountains and crystal clear waters. From the centre of Tromsø you are just a few hundred meters from the nearest cross country ski trails. The nearby mountainous areas are the perfect place to ski through the sparkling snow. In the evening, you'll head out on your Northern Lights hunt. Experienced guides will bring you to the best spots for scoping the lights, and teach you how to capture them on camera. After about two hours you'll continue to one of the three exclusive Aurora camps. Here you'll split into two smaller groups (max 20 guests per group), each with its own lavvu (Sami tent) and English speaking guide. Warm up with hot drinks and have the opportunity to grill your own dinner on the open fire. Warm winter clothes and tripods are available to borrow.

Day 3: Take the shuttle to Malangen Resort, where you'll check-in before spending the day at your leisure. Indulge in an unforgettable activity such as snowmobile rides or snowshoeing (at an additional cost, bookable through the provider or on-site at your resort). Your next three nights will be spent at Malangen Resort, including breakfast. (transfer between Tromsø and the Malangen Resort included)

Day 4: After breakfast, take a 3-hour dog sled ride through the snow-blanketed wilderness near Camp Nikka, just outside Malangen resort. You'll finish the trip with a warm meal by the open fire. In addition to light snacks with coffee or tea, you'll be provided with warm (and oh so stylish!) matching clothes and headgear. English-speaking guides give you detailed instructions on how to ride your sled. You'll then return to the resort and spend your afternoon and evening at leisure.

Day 5: After breakfast, spend your day at leisure in Malangen, with the option of booking an excursion (chargeable).

Day 6: After breakfast, and depending on your flight time, you have some time at leisure before hopping on the shuttle back to Tromsø airport to catch your flight back home to the UK. (transfer included)

Scandic Ishavshotel, Tromso (or similar) (two nights)

This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is set right by the quayside in Tromso. There’s an a la carte restaurant on site, Roast, which offers fresh seafood and locally sourced meats, whilst Roast Bar is on hand with a post-dinner drink and a good selection of local beers. The buffet breakfast is worth getting up for - it was voted the country’s best hotel breakfast in 2017 by the Twining Best Hotel Breakfast competition. Guest rooms are modern in design with calming colour palettes that reflect the palette of the surrounding landscape. Amenities include tea and coffee facilities, ironing facilities and en-suite bathrooms. 

Malangen Brygger Resort, Meistervik (three nights)

This contemporary, purpose-built resort boasts an idyllic waterfront location on the picturesque Malangen Peninsula - just over an hour’s drive from Tromsø. During winter months, Malangen Brygger is one of the leading Northern Lights resorts in Norway but with daytime views of the fjord and a mountainous panorama, daytime views are just as stunning as the majestic night skies. Nestled close to the water's edge, two-storey Sea View cabins have a spacious lounge and kitchen downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs, sleeping up to six guests. Self-contained kitchens feature a stove, dishwasher, coffee machine, fridge/freezer and dining area, while the lounge houses comfy sofas and flatscreen TV. The resort's restaurant offers complimentary buffet breakfast and specialises in North Norwegian cuisine made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
