Day 1 - Arrive into Tromsø
Arrive into Tromsø¸ and make your own way to the hotel. Located 400km north of the Arctic Circle at 69˚N, the small town of Tromsø bills itself as Norway's gateway to the Arctic, and there's definitely more than a hint of polar atmosphere around town. Surrounded by fjords and mountain peaks that remain snowcapped for much of the year, Tromsø offers polar museums and arctic themed attractions.
Enjoy one of the seafood restaurants on the harbour this evening.
Day 2 - Tromsø City Walk
A guided city walk takes you on a historical and cultural city walk through Tromsø city, including Polar Museum and ending at the Polaria aquarium and environmental centre.
Day 3 - Transfer to Lyngen Lodge
In the morning, we will pick you up in Tromsø for the 2-hour drive to your base in the Alps, Lyngen Lodge, located above a fjord with a striking mountain backdrop. After you have checked in, you can enjoy lunch on the open deck if you wish. Head off beach combing this afternoon or your choice of activities.
This evening, sit back with a glass of wine by the windows before enjoying your gourmet dinner, sourced locally with a seafood focus. Remember that during summer, you will be able to enjoy the midnight sun with sunset late in the evening and rising again around 2-3am.
Days 4 - 5 - Lyngen Lodge
Lyngen Lodge sits in a natural forest clearing above a fjord with a striking mountain backdrop. High in the Arctic Circle, it's as remote a spot as you could hope to find, in Europe at least. It is a place to enjoy nature, kayaking, beach combing, hiking and glacier exploring. Or you can just laze around with breathtaking views across the fjord and the Alps. And, if you're there from November to March, you can gasp at the northern lights.
Co-owner Graham Austick, who grew up in the north of England before defecting to St Anton to become a ski instructor and mountain guide, spotted the site when hiking through a nearby forest. He wanted to create a place which complemented rather than offended the nature around it, so he used a traditional Norwegian "lafting" pine timber frame with a thick grass roof, which also insulates the property.
Optional activities on offer:
- Sea safari by boat
- Deepsea Fishing
- Glacier Exploring
- Sea Kayaking
- Reisa River Nationalpark
Day 6 - Return to Tromsø
After breakfast, return transfer to Tromsø and enjoy your last evening in the far north. Consider a spa cruise on the Vulkana, perhaps?
Optional Add Ons

Practical budgeting information before your departure to Norway
Norway has a few items that typically surprise travellers when visiting Norway for the first time. Alcohol and luxury items are heavily taxed and therefore prices are higher than you would expect. On the other hand, necessities such as bread and milk, are taxed low and therefore are great value.
We recommend that you bring all the alcohol you’re allowed to bring into the country when you arrive. There are many lovely parks and balconies where you can enjoy your duty free. However, be sure not to bring more than you’re allowed!
As of May 2014, the allowances according to Visit Norway are:
Minimum age: 18/ 20*
1 litre of beverages with more than 22% up to and including 60% alcohol per volume as well as 1½ litre with more than 2.5% up to and including 22% alcohol per volume or three litres with more than 2.5% up to and including 22% alcohol per volume
2 litres of beer with more than 2.5 % or other beverages with more than 2.5% up to and including 4.7% alcohol per volume.
This means that you may for example bring with you five litres of beer provided you do not have any other alcoholic beverages with you.
*For importing alcoholic beverages with more than 22% alcohol per volume the minimum age is 20.
It’s illegal to bring extra alcohol into Norway and can end up costing you. Another thing you should bring and not buy in Norway is razor blades. Good razor blades in Norway are expensive.
Practical information about Scandinavian Hotels
- Hotel rooms in Scandinavia are normally furnished with twin beds, which can be moved together to form a double bed or placed separately. Please note that single rooms are generally smaller than doubles, and are often equipped with a shower instead of a bath. Purpose-built triple or family rooms are likewise unusual in Scandinavian hotels. Whilst it is possible for 3 persons to share a room, this will normally be a double room with an extra bed, with correspondingly less space to move about in.
- It is also unusual to have a porter at hotels to carry your luggage.
- There is free wi-fi in many hotels in Scandinavia.
- Unexpectedly, all forms of Scandinavian accommodation rarely provide tea and coffee facilities in their rooms. If you are lucky, a kettle will be supplied but nothing else. Please ask at reception for some provisions when you arrive or just carry a small selection from home.
- Please also note that in Scandinavia - in particular, during winter - the included lunch will often be a hearty warm soup with bread.
- More remote hotels in Lapland will offer dinner at an additional cost. In some spots, there will be limited choices else where. Generally, you get a very nice home-cooked Scandinavian dinner. However, you may sometimes find only one or two choices only for your main course.
- In Scandinavia, it is normal for washing and laundry facilities to be in the basement. If you are staying in apartment type accommodation, check downstairs or ask for assistance.
Travel insurance is compulsory for all tours with 50 Degrees North. Please ensure that you have this organised as we will need to see proof of this upon issuing your tour documentation. Please contact us for a quote or visit http://www.suresave.net.au/
