Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Tromso

    Depart the UK and fly to Tromso. On arrival, make your way to the Clarion Collection Hotel With, located near the harbour in the heart of the city, for a one-night stay.

    The rest of the day is yours to explore the city at your leisure. Tromsø, also known as the 'Capital of the North' is a lively university town, offering an abundance of historical and cultural attractions such as the Arctic Cathedral and museums and the world's northernmost botanical gardens. However, if you're looking to enjoy the city at a slower pace, admire the city from the top of Storsteinen mountain after taking the Fjellheisen cable car, and soak up the friendly atmosphere in one of the many restaurants, bars and coffee shops. In the evening, head out to one the city's many top-class restaurants before joining an optional tour in search of your first glimpse of the Northern Lights.
