Description

You will be picked up from Tromsø city centre for a 50 minutes drive to Aurora Alps through incredible arctic landscapes including fjords, snow-capped mountains, waterfalls and picturesque villages. When you arrive at our base camp at Breivikeidet you will be taken to your tent and you will have free time to explore the magical twilight and the frozen landscape around the camp.

A hot delicious meal will be served in the restaurant before you venture out again in anticipation of the Polar Lights spectacle. Feel the frozen air on your face and the tranquillity the place has to offer before you return to your warm tent for a dreamy night sleep on reindeer hides inside your sleeping bag. The tent is heated by a wood-fired stove.

Wake up in the morning renewed and have your hot breakfast before you venture for a 2-hour cross-country skiing experience. Your guide will give you a short introduction, teaching you the basics you need to know for your adventure. You will learn how to balance yourself and slide your skis on the snow. You can ski either along already existing trails or if you feel comfortable enough create your own.

When the cross-country experience is over and you are back at the base camp you will still have time for a delicious hot meal and some tea or coffee before you are driven back to Tromsø city where your tour will have come to an end.
