Full description
After departing from the meeting point in Tromsø at 11:00 AM, you’ll head straight to the dock to begin your overnight adventure. Outfitted with a warm flotation suit, mittens, boots, goggles, and a life jacket, you’ll board the RIB-boat (rigid-inflatable boat), heading south down the Norwegian coast. Traveling along the Ry Tidal Current, you’ll see a spate of marine life, fish, and stunning greenery along the shoreline. Arriving at a boathouse 5 minutes from the shore, enjoy coffee and tea while gazing at the fjords surrounding you. Afterward, you’ll navigate back up the coast to Tromsø, where you’ll have free time to explore the city or grab a bite to eat. At 5:30 PM, you’ll be picked up and driven to the Lyngen Alps, a set of towering mountains set against the waters of the Lyngen Fjord. Participate in a photography workshop to help you get the best shots of the otherworldly scenery, before enjoying a dinner of Norwegian specialties. After a full day, you’ll settle in for the night in a glass-topped crystal lavvu, based on the traditional tents of Norway’s indigenous people. You can look for northern lights at the camp after dinner and from your laavu. The next morning, you’ll head back to Tromsø, having experienced the full gamut of Norway’s natural beauty.

Awesome experience . Loved every bit of it !

This is a very planned tour which doesn’t fail you at any level. The RIB ride was very exciting and a unique experience in itself . The guide was very helpful . I had little difficulty in getting on and getting off from the boat but the guide helped me through and through and went out of way to see that I enjoyed as much as others .Getting off at an unused pier, seeing an eagle soar high and then land onto its nest ,all of it was fun packed. We went around the fjord and enjoyed the lovely scenery . Francisco at Lava house was a very warm host . He is very knowledgeable and made sure we see the northern lights at the right time and not miss them . Lavvu stay was not only unique but amazingly comfortable . Francisco kept the experience of this trip interesting and informative at the same time . Would recommend this safari as it gives a much better chance to see northern lights and even enjoy it in a relaxed manner .
