Full description

Explore the Norwegian wilderness in search of the northern lights on this bus day trip from Tromsø. Eat a 2-course dinner and stop for a delicious Norwegian dessert and a hot drink along the way. Stay warm with a thermal winter suit. 

Board a comfortable minibus at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø. Enjoy a scenic ride thorugh the countryside to the mountainside town of Malangen. Hear about the surroundings and the northern lights from your guide as you travel. 

Head to the restaurant, but stop to observe the lights if they appear on the way. Sit down to dinner in a heated lavvu (tradtional tent) next to a cozy bonfire. Listen to stories told by your local chef. Savor local flavors during a 2-course dinner paired with a wine, beer, or soda.

Try locally-sourced food that has been spiced with herbs from the chef's garden. Partake in a meat starter of ham, local chevre cheese with fruit chutney on top of flatbread, or a vegetarian starter of chevre with fruit chutney served on top of roasted bread spiced with dried leaves of birch.

Taste a meat main dish of lamb steak from local farmers served with delicious sauce, stewed sweet peas, vegetables, and almond potatoes. Savor a vegetarian main dish of marinated tofu served with tzatziki and oven-baked vegetables from the farm.

After dinner, go out in search of the stunning northern lights and admire views of the mountains and fjords along the way. Your guide will go to places with the clearest skies to increase your chances of spotting the northern lights. 

Make a stop for a sweet flatbread snack called lefse and a hot chocolate, coffee, or tea. Get help capturing night photos of the northern lights and have a tripod to use. Return to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Tromsø at the end of your tour.
