A spectacular fjordside break with included aurora watching for an unforgettable New Year

» 5 day tailor-made break

» Price from: £1,450 incl. flights

This tailor-made, five-day break will see you head to spectacular Malangen, a red-cabined resort on the shores of a remote fjord, for New Year celebrations with a difference. You'll stay in a glass-front, Scandi-luxe sea view cabin, perfect for a break with family or friends, enjoying included three-course meals and a Northern Lights watch in a remote camp. It’s perfected with optional excursions, from snowshoeing under moonlight to dogsledding through frozen fir forests, before a five-course gala dinner and midnight firework party see the New Year in in style. 

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » UK to Tromso (Sat 29 Dec )

    Take your flight from the UK to Tromso and enjoy a direct transfer to Malangen, a traditional resort made up of rorbu-red huts on the shores of a remote fjord, fringed by soaring, snow-capped peaks. You'll stay in a four-person sea view cabin, ideal for a family or group of friends, all whitewashed wooden walls, pinewood flooring and natural materials alongside stunning fjord vistas. This evening, enjoy an included three-course dinner, enjoying such delights as fresh seafood and reindeer.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Dinner

  • Day 2 » Optional excursions & Northern Lights watch (Sun 30 Dec)

    After breakfast today, you've got a day at leisure to enjoy optional excursions. Perhaps head out into the wintery wilds on a snowmobile to the remote Tamok Valley, traversing through dramatic ice-slicked forests and Arctic tundra, or rent some fat bikes for a thrilling few hours riding through the thick snow – pre booking is essential for each activity. Come back to another three-course dinner before enjoying an included Northern Lights watch at the cosy Camp Nikka, a short distance from the hotel but miles from any light pollution. Set up your camera in preparation to capture the psychedelic ballet – and not to worry if you later fall asleep, as there's a Northern Lights alarm on hand should the dazzling tendrils of the aurora emerge.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 3 » New Year's Eve Dinner at Camp Nikka (Mon 31 Dec)

    You’ve got another day at leisure for optional activities before the celebrations tonight. Perhaps head cross-country skiing through the silent pine forests before hot drinks by an open fire, or discover the enchanting stories of the indigenous Sami people, joining a Sami storyteller in a lavvu and even feeding and lassoing a reindeer. Back at the resort, perhaps enjoy a relaxing session in the glass-front sauna looking over the ice-slicked fjord, or soak in the open air hot tub (supplement applies) before getting ready for tonight's celebrations. You'll enjoy a sparkling wine toast in the cosy Naust Pub to start before heading to Camp Nikka for a 5-course gala dinner accompanied by live music and, naturally, a midnight firework show.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 4 » Optional excursions (Tue 1 Jan)

    After a relaxed New Year's Day breakfast, enjoy your final day among the snow-dusted surrounds. Perhaps head out dogsledding through the silent wilderness and mush your own husky team, then come this evening, we recommend a magical snowshoeing excursion under the moonlight, heading to different locations for a range of brilliant Northern Lights vantage points before enjoying hot drinks by the fire. 

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 5 » Tromso to UK (Wed 2 Jan)

    After breakfast, take your private transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK via Oslo.
