Arctic Circle Explorer

This show-stopping journey transports you from Tromsø in Northern Norway, across the frozen tundra and mountain plateaus to Narvik, where you board The Arctic Train to Kiruna in Sweden. The tour ends with a spectacular stay at the ICEHOTEL. This flexible trip is in the heart of the aurora zone and allows you ample time to add Arctic excursions such as a Northern Lights hunt or husky, snowmobile and reindeer safaris. You can also extend your stay in any of the destinations featured.
DAY 1 Tromsø
Fly to Tromsø and transfer with ‘Flybuss’ to the Clarion Collection Hotel With for 2 nights. Depending on your arrival time you may want to join one of our optional Northern Lights tours.
DAY 2 Tromsø 
Tailor-make your stay in the ‘Capital of the North’ from our selection of optional  excursions. (please contact us for full details) You will have plenty of time for an Arctic adventure. A snowmobile safari and husky mushing are always popular choices. This evening can also be spent in pursuit of the Northern Lights.
DAY 3 Narvik
Enjoy a plentiful breakfast before taking the early morning bus south to Narvik. The scenic 4-hour journey meanders through the glacial valleys and fjords of the Troms region. On arrival in Narvik, check-in to the Scandic Narvik and sample its designer delights. The rest of the day is at leisure. We recommend the Ofoten Museum, which chronicles the construction of the railway and the WWII battles that took place for the control of both Narvik’s harbour and all important iron ore. Alternatively, take the cable car to the top of Narvikfjellet for panoramic views of Ofotfjord. Fine dining can be enjoyed at the Linken Restaurant. Being 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle, there is every chance of spotting the Northern Lights.
DAY 4 The Arctic Train & ICEHOTEL
Board the Ofoten Line and Arctic Circle train for one of the most northern railway journeys in the world. The 3-hour journey initially hugs the shores of the Ofotfjord before ascending to its highest point at the border crossing of Riksangransen. There are no customs as you continue onwards crossing Abisko National Park before arriving at the former mining town of Kiruna. On arrival you will be met and transferred to the ICEHOTEL. Your accommodation for the night is a bed of ice, covered with reindeer skins topped with the warmest of sleeping bags. A whole host of activities await but first raise a toast to your journey in the ICEBAR whilst appreciating the fine ice carvings hewn by award-winning ice artists.
DAY 5 UK
Enjoy a warming hot berry juice and rejuvenating sauna before breakfast. Afterwards you will transfer to Kiruna Airport in time for your flight home to the UK (via Stockholm).
