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! The trip can be taken from Bergen with return to Bergen or as a round trip via Oslo before returning back to Bergen.
Northern Lights excursion
You start your tour from Bergen by flying north to the arctic city of Tromsø, where an overnight stay is required. During your stay in Tromsø, a 7-hour Northern Lights excursion to Camp Tamok is included. You can take the Northern Lights excursion the same day as you arrive in Tromsø, or the following day.
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). After your stay in Tromsø is completed, you travel back to Bergen where an overnight stay is required.
