Tromso in Norway and Kilpisjärvi in Finland

Tromso in Norway and Kilpisjärvi in Finland

Experience the stunning nature and the Arctic activities of the northern Norway and Finland!  This unique combination gives you the best chances to see the northern lights. 

You will be welcomed at the airport by your Finnish host at the airport and transported straight away to Kilpisjärvi. On your way back to Tromso in two parts it will be day time and you will see the stunning nature surrounding you all the way. 

Kilpisjärvi  is the most north-western point of Finland. This region is called "the arm of Finland" as it looks like an arm on map. It takes 5 hours with stops to get there by bus but the landscape is amazing and it is light until 2pm, for the major part of the trip. This offers you a chance to see Lapland. On the way back you will see the Kilpisjärvi part in blueish polar day light. Taxi will take less than 3,5 hours but we have reserved a bit more to make it possible to have a short break.

The Vasara Reindeer Ranch  is an authentic and secluded Sámi reindeer ranch run by the same family in 12th generation.  The Ranch is perched at the edge of a vast wilderness area, on the shore of a lake with crystal water and at the foot of a gently rolling mountain, both of which bear the same name, Peera.

There are only 4 Sámi Glass Igloos by the lake with breathtaking view.  The spacious lodges (29 m2) feature all the amenities you would expect of a well-appointed hotel room, in addition to the incredible view, which is made possible by the glass roof. Reindeer rambling free on the ranch grounds will delight you and provide marvellous photo opportunities.

Vasara Reindeer Ranch is a marvellous place for viewing Aurora Borealis - it is a secluded retreat, far
from any artificial lighting, in the heart of the auroral zone of northern Scandinavia.

Tromso was the starting point for many polar expeditions. Today it is a lively Arctic city hosting a lot of tourists coming to hunt for northern lights and admire the stunning nature surrounding Tromso. You can see steep mountains and beautiful fjords during your day tours and transfers. Due to the Golf stream the climate on the Norwegian coast is milder, the average winter temperature is only  -4 degrees celcius compared to Kilpisjärvi where the average temperature in January-February is -12,5 degrees celcius. 

Polaria  was established in connection with the move of the Norwegian Polar Institute to Tromsø. Through knowledge-based exhibitions made in collaboration with researchers from The Fram Centre, Polaria will mirror some of the climate and environmental research that takes place in the Arctic area.

Tromso catamaran cruise  goes around the beautiful isle of Tromsø. Due to the weather the routte might be changed a bit. This is mainly thought to enjoy the bright winter colors and scenery of our Arctic winter landscape.You might see see porpoises, white -beaked dolphins, seals, eagles and other seabirds You will hear small stories, and you can make questions about the city and other things. Hot drinks and homemade cakes or biscuits/chocolate are served along the route.

We are very serious when it comes to safety. Yearly check on equipment and boat on an authorized ship yard. All our passengers are well insured on board!
