Few things are as magical as the northern lights. Cap off the end of this year with a 10-DAY, once-in-a-lifetime northern lights adventure that's guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.
The trip kicks off in Tromso, Norway! High up in northern Norway, the compact city's arctic architecture welcomes you and gives off a quaint vibe. Go on a walking tour around Tromso and in the evening, the real adventure begins - it's time to hunt for the Aurora Borealis. Situated in the arctic circle, the lights here are so much brighter!
After your fine time in Tromso, we now fly into Helsinki, capital of Finland. Experience all things Helsinki as we go around town on a guided tour. After that, we hop on the overnight train to our next arctic adventure: Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland! Said to be the hometown of Santa Claus, delight in Rovaniemi and celebrate all things winter and Christmas. Go husky-sledding, reindeer-sleighing or simply just play in all that snow. When night comes, watch out for Lady Aurora as she dances in the sky. This is Travel Factor's NORTHERN LIGHTS EXPEDITION!
