A day-by-day plan to guide your journey.


    Upon arrival at Tromsø Airport, collect your luggage and make your way to your hotel. We recommend taking the airport bus (Flybussen) or a taxi to your hotel. After settling in at your hotel, you can spend the rest of the day exploring the charming city of the "capital of Norway". There are many restaurants in city centre for an early dinner to start the holiday with a taste of a true arctic meal.

    In the evening, it’s time to leave the city lights behind and join a guided small group minibus tour for chance to enjoy some of the brightest northern lights in the world.*

    Spend the night in Tromsø.

    * Please note that the northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

Tour Information

We recommend that all our travellers read through the following information about what the tour includes, what to pack for your holiday and useful information about the activities that are included during the tour.

All accommodations and planned activities (as specified in the itinerary) will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor. This is a self-guided tour, with no dedicated tour guide for the duration of your stay. For each planned activity, you can expect a different tour operator and guide, and you will have free time between activities. Nordic Visitor works with a small group of handpicked suppliers that are highly rated and deliver excellent service that meet our high standards.

You should have moderate to good physical fitness to take part comfortably in this tour. This is because packages set in the Arctic are considered adventure travel due to the specific conditions you’ll experience. Arctic travel can sometimes involve extreme weather conditions as well as vigorous activity and animals (like huskies and reindeer) on many excursions.

The tour starts with a 75-minute bus transfer between the meeting location in Tromsø and Camp Tamok. The dog sledding itself takes about 2 hours, travelling 10-12 km, where you will be driving in pairs, one driver and one passenger, switching places half way. No experience is required, but you should be in fair physical condition to take part. Total duration of the tour is 8 hours. Warm clothing and equipment will be provided on location for the activity.
Please note that this tour is only available to those arriving after the 1st of December.

Travelling in the winter season in Norway is highly recommended and very enjoyable. You will get a chance to see the snow covered landscape, and it‘s not as cold as one would think. For more information about weather conditions, please refer to our Norway travel guide.

In northern Norway, northern lights activity is strongest between mid October to early April. Auroras can only be seen at night if the sky is clear and there is solar activity. Please note that sightings cannot be guaranteed. For more information about northern lights, please refer to the travel guide.

Some of the optional activities are dependent on weather conditions. In the unlikely event that an activity is cancelled due to weather, an alternative will be offered.


  • Warm winter parka and waterproof pants
  • Sturdy walking shoes with a good tread/grip, preferably insulated
  • Thermal base-layers
  • Mid-layers such as a fleece jacket/wool sweater
  • Insulated gloves, hat and scarf
  • Camera

All bookings are charged in Euros (EUR). Prices displayed in other currencies are indicative only and based on the daily exchange rate. Therefore, conversions from EUR to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.

After booking your package with Nordic Visitor, you will be contacted within two working days by one of our travel consultants, who will serve as your dedicated contact person for all your travel needs before, during and even after your holiday. Your travel consultant will provide you with details about your booking and your remaining payment (if not paid in full). You will also receive more information about what to expect during your holiday.
