We recommend a visit to Polaria, just five minutes' walk from the centre of Tromso. Housed in a building that represents ice flows pressed up on land by the rough seas of the Arctic. Polaria offers an Arctic aquarium, interesting knowledge-based exhibits and a panoramic cinema where you can see the Ivo Caprino film "Svalbard - Arctic Wilderness" and the Ole C. Salomonsen production "Northern Lights in Arctic Norway".
In the evening, you will join the search for the Northern Lights starting from the Hotel Radisson Blu Tromsø. We recommend being present latest at 18.00 hours.
AURORA BOREALIS (regular service)
Transfer to the base camp and meet the professional Northern Lights hunters who will be your guides. From the camp, located in an uninhabited area with no artificial lights to disturb the experience or the chance to capture the Aurora Borealis on camera. With a great view of the skies there is also time to sit around the open camp fire inside a Sami tent and grill sausages, visit the huskies and their puppies or warm up inside. Due to the stable climate at this location and with some personal persistence, there are excellent possibilities to see even the weakest of lights. Included is a traditional dinner of Finnbiff (beef & mushroom stew) followed by coffee and cake.
Returning back to Hotel Radisson Blu Tromso at 22:30.
