What's to get excited about!

Norway, part of Scandinavia, has attractive and dramatic scenery.

Balsfjord, 60km from Tromso, part of the northern coast of Norway, where we will be staying, has some of the most visually impressive coast lines in the world. As we are in the Arctic Circle and the holiday is over the summer solstice, we will have the opportunity to witness the midnight sun, a natural phenomenon.

This Arctic Midnight Sun holiday will enable us to experience a sublime part of Norway in different ways. A fjord cruise, an island tour, by cable car and by kayak. A fantastic trip in the Arctic Circle.
