On arrival at Tromsø Airport, you need to take the Airport Express Coach or a taxi on your own to Clarion Collection Hotel Aurora.
Clarion Collection Hotel Aurora enjoys a central location on Sjøgata pedestrian street, only 250 m from the Hurtigruten Cruise Ship Terminal. It offers free Wi-Fi and panoramic views of the mountains and the Tromsøysund. Leisure facilities include a gym and outdoor hot tub from where guests might catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights during winter.

Breakfast will be served at the Clarion Collection Hotel Aurora. After breakfast, you will travel by bus to a camp near Sommarøy. On arrival at the camp, you will receive a thermal suit, winter boots, hat and mittens. After a brief introduction to dog sledding, an incredible adventure with the dogs in the wilderness awaits you. The silence disturbed only by the sound of the dogs is something that simply has to be experienced.
After the dog sledding adventure, our bus takes you to Sommarøy Arctic Hotel. Sommarøy is a vibrant costal community surrounded by the open sea.
This is the perfect place to chase the Northern Lights, far removed from the bright city lights. Lunch will be served on arrival and a three-course dinner in the evening.
After dinner, you will go on a Northern Lights chase with a local guide, who will share stories from Sommarøy.
After breakfast, you will go on a boat trip to look for whales during the whale season (November to January). At other times of the year, we offer a marine mammal safari (white-tailed eagle and seals). The tour takes around two hours, followed by lunch at the hotel. You have the afternoon at your leisure to explore the unique island of Sommarøy. A three-course dinner is served in the evening.
