Lynne Alps Northern Lights

Lynne Alps Northern Lights

On this amazing Lynne Alps Northern Lights  trip, stay with an experienced Aurora chaser at his villa in the Lyngen Alps and get to know lively Tromsø, the Northern Lights capital.

Experience what life is like for the locals and actively explore the beautiful nature around Tromsø and the spectacular Lyngen Alps by snowmobile and snowshoes with your host.

Sleep in a Crystal Lavvo, a modern version of the traditional Sami tent, and gaze at the skies through the glass ceiling.

At a latitude of 70 degrees north, Tromsø is often referred to as the capital of the Arctic, being the largest city above the Arctic Circle. The city enjoys a scenic location surrounded by majestic mountains, fjords and a stunning archipelago. Combining the comfort of a lively, charming and cultural city with this natural setting, Tromsø makes for a great base for any winter or summer adventure.

Tromsø is renowned for being one of the best places on the planet from where to observe the amazing phenomenon that is the Aurora Borealis, as it is situated right in the center of the Northern Lights zone. Most of the Northern Lights outbursts visible from Tromsø are green, but larger outbursts can also include other colors.

In order to see the Northern Lights, it must be dark and clear – the reason that we never see the Northern Lights between May and August. The greatest frequency is between 6pm and 2am. Some visitors prefer to see the performance from a mountaintop shielded from the city’s lights, while others are just as impressed right in the city center.

Winter in Tromsø is also not especially cold. The lowest temperature recorded in Tromsø is minus 18 degrees Celsius, but the average temperature in January is -4. However, do expect a lot of snow!

Between November 21 and January 21, the sun disappears under the horizon and we experience what is known as “the Polar Night”. Despite the absence of sunlight, it is not completely dark during the day, however, and the light and color in the sky can be truly amazing when the weather is favorable.

hot tub on the roof offers.


DAY 2: In most stunning surroundings, you will be snowmobiling (16.12.18 – 31.03.19) and exploring the beautiful Lyngen Alps. After a brief introduction, follow your host on your own snowmobile up to a mountain plateau above the villa and take in the breathtaking views from up there. At other times of the year we offer a wildlife fjord safari by RIB. Here you have the possibility to see eagles, cormorants, puffins, seals, harbor porpoises, and occasionally even orcas or other whale species. Relax in the afternoon, before venturing out on an exciting chase for the stunning Northern Lights with your experienced host. Spend the night in a Crystal Lavvo and enjoy great Aurora views straight from your bed.


DAY 3: After breakfast, it is time to head back to Tromsø and the Aurora hotel where you will spend the next night. Use the day off to get to know Tromsø a bit better. Go for a stroll in the cozy pedestrian street, walk through the historical Skansen area close to the Polar museum and visit the iconic Arctic Cathedral. In the evening, chase the Northern Lights together with your husky team. The silence disturbed only by the sound of the dogs and the dance of the Aurora is something that simply must be experienced.


DAY 4: After breakfast, it is time to make your way back to the airport in time for your flight home.
