Take a taxi or the shuttle bus from the airport and check in at the centrally located Clarion Collection Aurora hotel in the heart of Tromsø. A light evening buffet awaits you at the hotel’s restaurant.
After breakfast, head out with our guide by RIB to explore Tromsø’s beautiful surroundings from the sea. The trip leads you out to beautiful Hella, known for its rich wildlife and traditional wooden houses. These have been moved to this scenic location from Tromsø and illustrate the city’s rich cultural heritage. Enjoy a light evening buffet at the hotel’s restaurant before relaxing in the outdoor hot tub on the fifth floor of the hotel, with great views of the city.
After breakfast, it is time to head on to the small island community of Sommarøy. Take in the beautiful autumn landscape on your scenic drive to the island. Sommarøy has kept its rich fishing traditions alive. Join a local on a guided walk to learn some more about the local community on this remote island. After dinner, it is time to head out with our guide to the nearby Aurora camp. Spend the night by the crackling fire, listening to your guide’s stories about life on the island, until the Aurora unfolds her magical dance.
Today, enjoy a day off on the island. Hike up to the easily accessible top of Hillesøy mountain and take in the panorama views, go for a walk on one of the white sandy beaches or simply relax in the sauna. Lunch and dinner will be served at the hotel’s restaurant. Tonight, head out to chase the Northern Lights again, this time on your own.
After breakfast, it is time to leave Sommarøy and head back to Tromsø city center or the airport.
