Northern Lights & Norway in a nutshell®

You may find it difficult to sleep in Norway with all the beautiful Northern Lights. So you might as well stay awake at our Northern Lights & Norway in a nutshell® tour.

This breathtaking trip combines the popular Norway in a nutshell® tour with a Northern Lights adventure! You will experience the mountains and fjords with the Bergen and Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord, as well as the Northern Lights in arctic Tromsø! The tour can be started and either Bergen or Oslo and requires overnight stays en route.

Start your tour from: Oslo | Bergen

Northern Lights excursion

During your stay in Tromsø, a 7-hour Northern Lights excursion to Camp Tamok is included. Because of it’s inland climate with stable dry weather, Camp Tamok is considered one of the prime locations to see the Aurora Borealis. You will therefore have excellent chances of spotting the frail rays of this beauty! You will be equipped with an insulated body suit, boots, gloves, headwear and head lamp. The excursion also includes a hot meal, a short nighttime hike and social time by the open fire in the big lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent).
