Enjoy a weekend break in Tromso, Norway's northernmost metropolis staying at the 3-star Thon Hotel Tromso. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, sprawling forests and endless fields of snow, this arctic adventure offers something for families and couples alike.
Unwind in the heart of the city during a three night stay at the Thon Hotel, and step into an arctic wonderland searching for the northern lights. Choose from a range of excursions to add on to this trip - try a ride through the countryside on a reindeer or husky sleigh, cross country ski or explore the vibrant city with a tour guide.
Fly to Tromso and check in to the Thon Hotel Tromso for three nights. Offering views of the majestic mountains and boasting a pretty waterfront, Tromsø is an ideal base for an Arctic adventure. Speak to a Regent Norway Specialist about booking your optional activities. After a day spent husky sledging or cross-country skiing, head to one of the town’s many pubs – Tromsø prides itself on having more pubs per capita than any other Norwegian town. Far above the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is also an excellent place from which to set off in search of the northern lights.
Spend a free day discovering Tromsø’s natural wonders on an optional excursion. Perhaps marvel at the icy wilderness whilst being pulled through fields by a herd of reindeer or join a whale watching boat tour to search for humpbacks and orcas, which come close to the coastline to feed during the winter season. Cross-country skiing excursions are also available for both novice and intermediate skiers. In the evening, embark on an Aurora Safari and travel through the Arctic wilderness to basecamp to enjoy a hot meal and campfire. Northern lights sightings here are exceptionally high, with a success rate of 93 percent. (B,D)
