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 Balsfjord is located in the Arctic Circle, we will have the opportunity to witness one of nature’s most beautiful wonders, the Northern Lights, or norðrljós, as the Vikings called them.
This holiday will enable us to experience this sublime part of Norway in different ways. We will visit the native Sami people, feed their reindeer and hear their old folk tales and songs, take a fjord cruise on a family boat, do a spot of fishing and look out for the fjord wildlife (white tailed eagle, porpoise, sea otter and many sea birds. An island tour of Kvaloya, an island with picturesque fjords and spectacular views over the Arctic Sea. Take a cable car ride up on to Storsteinen Mountain for some breath taking views over Tromso whilst enjoying a hot drink in the panoramic restaurant. Finally take a pony ride on some Islandic ponies with Bard and his team.
A fantastic trip in the Arctic Circle.
