Detailed Itinerary

Arrival in Tromsø according to your own itinerary. Tromsø is often referred to as the ‘Arctic Capital’ and is the largest Norwegian city above the Arctic city. In Tromsø, we suggest a visit of the famous Polaria museum. Tromsø is situated above the Arctic Circle and right in the center of the Northern Lights zone. Because of the planet’s rotation, Tromsø moves into the aurora zone around 6 pm, and moves out again around midnight. The Northern light does not appear every night but the chances to experience it in Tromsø are definitely big!
Accommodation at Clarion Collection Aurora or similar.

Breakfast at the hotel. Half day at leisure before boarding the Hurtigruten cruise ship in the afternoon. On board the Hurtigruten, you have a unique opportunity to explore the wonderful arctic landscape from the sea. The glaciers, the colorful culture of the Inuit and wild animals make the Hurtigruten cruise one of the most exciting and beautiful voyages in the world.
Accommodation on board Hurtigruten in outside cabin.

Breakfast on board. Today you have reached your final port onboard Hurtigruten, Honningsvåg. From here, you will go for an excursion to the northernmost point of Norway – the North Cape. The tour goes by bus from Honningsvåg through the sub-arctic landscape towards our destination. The plateau itself rises 307 meters up from the Arctic Ocean which gives you a Majestic view. The entrance to the North Cape Hall with viewing platform is included in the excursion. Transfer back to Honningsvåg for overnight stay.

You will follow the old trade route towards Karasjok which offer a great variety of nature – from forest and valley to unending, snow-covered plains. Your adventure does not stop, after your adventurous snowmobile safari get ready for a night in the igloo hotel.
The Igloo hotel measures approx. 2000 square meters and the entire hotel with its 30 rooms are completely made of snow and ice. The temperatures inside the igloo remain constant between minus 4 and minus 7. Thanks to natural reindeer-hides, “mattresses” and sleeping-bags that keep you warm, you will have a comfortable night. We recommend wearing woolen underwear and a hat during the night.
