Northern Lights & Norway in a nutshell® tour from Bergen

See the Northern Lights and experience Norway's beautiful fjord scenery on the famous Norway in a nutshell® tour.

This breathtaking trip combines the popular Norway in a nutshell® tour with your very own Northern Lights adventure! This trip can be taken as a round trip with return to Bergen, or as a one way trip to Oslo.

The Norway in a nutshell® tour

By starting this trip from Bergen, you first embark on our popular Norway in a nutshell tour®. On this part of the tour you will experience the mountains and fjords with the scenic Bergen Railway, the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord on a fjord cruise, as well as the stunning Flåm Railway! After the Flåm Railway you travel to Oslo from Myrdal. One (or more) overnight stays in Oslo is required, before traveling north to the Arctic city of Tromsø and your very own Northern Lights adventure! 

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).

Travel tip

There are different ways to complete this trip, and you decide this in the booking process. From Bergen you return to either Bergen or Oslo, depending on your wishes. We highly recommend that you add overnight stays during your tour. We especially recommend an an extra night in Tromsø, where there are several exiting and adventurous activities you can add to your tour. Why not try out a snow mobile safari or even a dog sledding trip! 

You travel on your own by following your travel itinerary. On the Norway in a nutshell® part of the tour, you will also receive a handy and informative "Norway in a nutshell® - Travelers Guide" booklet.
