7 days - Luxury Lodge | Hot tub under the Northern Lights | Tromsø

Tromsø is the gateway to the Arctic and one of the best and most cosmopolitan places to observe the spectacle that is called the Northern Lights. Tromsø is located in the middle of the Aurora Borealis zone, and following the planet’s rotation, Tromsø moves into the aurora zone around 6 pm to midnight. Just east of Tromsø lies the Lyngen Alps where you will stay in a traditional timber lodge, Lyngen Lodge, beautifully situated on the fjord.

This is a perfect and tranquil place to observe the Northern Lights, combined with optional daytime activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, sea safaris skiing or snowshoeing.

One of our favourite and most popular lodges, Lyngen Lodge comes highly recommended by all 50 Degrees North travellers who have stayed here - availability is limited, so be quick!

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, dog sledding, skiing and other snow activities. 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. For the skiing enthusiasts, fast boats transport you direct to the snow, where you can ski down from spectacular summits to snow-covered beaches; potentially basking in the midnight sun if you're there in May.

Optional activities on offer:

  • Dog sledding - 5 hours through the wildeness with a campfire lunch
  • Sea safari by boat - deep sea fishing and eagle spotting
  • Snow shoeing - Northern lights
  • Skiing
  • Snow mobiling - ice fishing, snowshoeing and mountain views

Practical budgeting information before your departure to Norway

Practical budgeting information before your departure to Norway:

Budget surprises:

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.

Alcohol import allowance into Norway:

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:

Alcoholic beverages:
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
and
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.
