Northern Lights

Tromso, Norway - Helsinki & Rovaniemi, Finland

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, in Arctic 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 travel to Rovaniemi in the 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. We might not have fireworks for New Year's Eve, but the Northern Lights will do! Finally we take the Polar Express train to Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Roam around the scenic city, visit an island fort or maybe even do a daytrip to Tallinn, Estonia! We couldn't be more excite for this trip. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Travel Factor's NORTHERN LIGHTS EXPEDITION!
