Malangen Resort is, in many ways, the ideal winter escape. Cosy and secluded, it’s tucked away on the shores of a beautiful fjord, a 90-minute transfer from Tromso. Here, amid the snow-dusted surrounds, a full range of optional activities, from cross-country skiing to snowshoeing, brings you right into Norway’s Arctic wilderness. We've also included a husky sledding trip – the chance to enjoy a truly iconic activity. Making full use of a new direct transfer from Tromso airport that began last year, this curated short break affords a three-night stay at Malangen, with a husky sledding excursion and half-board dining throughout.

Days 2-3 » Malangen Resort & husky sledding
Spend two memorable days exploring the snow-laden Arctic wilderness around Malangen Resort with optional excursions that range from snowmobiling to indigenous storytelling, held in a Sami tepee. There’s also the chance to take to the snow on specially adapted ‘fat bikes’, head into the forests on cross-country skiing trips or follow in the footsteps of the great Norwegian explorers on a snowshoe hike. Or, if you prefer, simply relax with the sauna or take in the views from one of Malangen’s hot tubs. You'll also be treated to that favourite of Nordic activities – dogsledding. On your included excursion, you'll be brought out to meet the eager huskies before being tutored on how to mush your team. Then, setting off through the white silence of the winter wilderness, you'll travel in pairs, swapping drivers at the halfway point before returning to hot drinks and a light snack, served by the campfire, of course.
