Norway Northern Lights Holiday

Norway Northern Lights Holiday with Polar Nights in Tromsø and Senja

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.

Senja. Famously beautiful, yet undiscovered by many, the Island of Senja offers outstanding wilderness, light conditions and wildlife to its visitors. Create unforgettable memories in the unique winter landscape as this arctic adventure connects Tromsø town-life to rural impressions of Senja. This 5-day package combines modern, luxurious accommodation with the purest nature and breathtaking fjord-views, giving you unique chances to individually chase the Northern Lights.

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 Senja  have to offer.
