Norway Northern Lights Holiday

Norway Northern Lights Holiday

This 5 day Norway Northern Lights Holiday offers you the opportunity to experience it all. Tromsø “The capital of the Arctic” is a lively and beautiful city. Tromsø is packed with culture and history and surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands.

Tromsø is one of the best places on earth to observe the Northern lights, with all the comfort of city life combined with wild nature right outside your hotel door. In Tromsø, the highest northern lights frequency is between 18:00 and 01:00, and the best months for the Norway Northern Lights Holiday are December, January, February and March. However, there are Northern Lights tours starting in September. Spotting the aurora borealis depends on solar activity and the weather – so as long as it is dark, there is a chance to see the lights.

There is also Northern Norway’s coastal culture and traditions on the remote island of Sommarøy. We have combined unique day activities with Northern Lights hunting in the evening for you to experience the best that Tromsø and its surroundings have to offer.
Arrival days: Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday
