Spend 3 nights in the beautiful city of Tromsø in northern Norway and 1 night out on the fjords and experience a true Arctic adventure then hop a plane and spend 2 days exploring Norway's beautiful capital city! Tromsø is a breathtaking coastal city in the Arctic Circle that is known for its polar nights, warm hospitality, and incredible views of the northern lights or aurora borealis! During the day you'll take photography lessons with a local professional photographer. At night the photographer will come with us as we chase the northern lights and get the perfect shot! You'll learn some incredible skills as a true nighttime nature photographer and go home with photos and memories to rival any national geographic spread!
Shooting the Northern Lights can be tricky. Exposure time, white balance, focus, all with a dark and moving backdrop. There's a lot that goes into the perfect photo, but after this trip you'll be able to take some truly breathtaking shots.
Fly into Tromsø and meet your tour organizer at the airport. Check into the beautiful hotel in downtown Tromsø and explore the city at night. Dinner is included at the hotel, but we have tons of great recommendations if you want to check out some local restaurants as well.
Enjoy a relaxing breakfast at the hotel and then we'll meet up with a professional photographer for our first lesson! Whether you're a beginner trying to figure out all the buttons on your camera or a seasoned photographer looking to pick up some new skills- we will cater the lesson to your skill level so that everyone can learn something new! We'll have the early evening free before we hop in the van with the photographer and head off for our first northern lights chase! Once we find the elusive lights we'll help you set up your camera and ensure that you get some great shots of yourself and the lights!
After a great nights sleep and breakfast with a side of gushing over our photos from the night before we'll head off for a different sort of arctic adventure- dog sled riding! We'll spend the afternoon with the energetic pups and learn all about their training and care from one of the only female owned sled dog training centers in the world! We'll follow that up with an exciting ride through an amazing winter wonderland! Warm outer clothing will be provided. We'll have a traditional Sami meal for lunch and then drive to Sommarøy, a remote fishing village out on the fjords where we're spending the night! Spend the evening relaxing at the hotel, taking a steam, exploring rural Norway, and hopefully seeing the lights right from the hotel property! (If the weather wasn't cooperating the night before or looks like it won't be good the following evening then we will head out for a northern lights chase this night).
After breakfast at the hotel we'll go on a drive exploring the fjords on our way back to Tromsø. Then we'll catch the cable car to the top of a mountain with a view of Tromsø that you will not want to miss. After dinner we'll hop back in the car for one last northern lights chase!
Breakfast at the hotel and transportation back to the Tromsø airport for our flight to Oslo. Once we land in Oslo you'll have the rest of the day free to explore at your own pace!
Oslo is a vibrant city, even in the winter, with lots to explore! You'll have the morning free to explore on your own and then we'll meet up to see the famous changing of the guards at the Oslo Royal Palace. Then we'll head to the Nobel Peace Center to see their ever-changing thought-provoking exhibits and learn more about this iconic award. A farewell dinner is included at Oslo's oldest restaurant full of delicious Scandinavian cuisine.
