Arrival in Tromsø according to your own itinerary. The arctic city of Tromsø is the world’s most northern university town and the largest city in the Nordic countries north of the Arctic Circle. The city lies between the sharp craggy peaks of the Lyngen Alps, and combines wild scenery with urban life. This evening you will visit Holmsletta Farm, a traditional North Norwegian family farm located 12 km from Tromsø city centre. Away from the city lights this is a great place to keep a lookout for the northern lights. Snacks and stories from the farm will be served in a warmed up lavvu. Holmesletta Farm is closed for visits on Fridays and Saturdays; if your first day of the tour is one of those days, we will move the Northern Lights visit to a later day. Accommodation in Tromsø.
