Tromsø is the gateway to the Arctic and one of the best and most cosmopolitan places to observe the spectacle that is called the Northern Lights. Tromsø is located in the middle of the Aurora Borealis zone, and following the planet’s rotation, Tromsø moves into the aurora zone around 6 pm to midnight. Just east of Tromsø lies the Lyngen Alps where you will stay in a traditional timber lodge, Lyngen Lodge, beautifully situated on the fjord.
This is a perfect and tranquil place to observe the Northern Lights, combined with optional daytime activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, sea safaris skiing or snowshoeing.
One of our favourite and most popular lodges, Lyngen Lodge comes highly recommended by all 50 Degrees North travellers who have stayed here - availability is limited, so be quick!
