Aurora Borealis

(18:15 – 22:30)
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.

Dora, Many thanks for your superb organization and planning of our trip to Scandinavia in July. The balance between travel, tours, and rest periods was just right. We adjusted to the jet lag pretty quickly, which I was so happy about! All of the hotels were perfectly located which enabled us to get up early (I’m always up by 4:30 or 5:00), explore our surroundings for a bit, and then meet back at the hotel to eat breakfast before getting picked up for the day tour. We had only one issue with the hotel in Copenhagen; they accidentally gave us a handicap room which made things a bit strange, especially in the bathroom. We informed our guide though and they got it straightened out and switched us to a different room. Cab pickups were all on time and your careful planning helped us make sure we were not rushed to make any connections. If I was making a recommendation of a 'must do' thing for anyone visiting Scandinavia, then the Flam railway would definitely be at the top of the list. I can see how this trip could be a bit of a disappointment if the weather turned foul and all that was visible was rain and clouds, so I’m thankful we had perfect weather. I don’t know how you organized for such nice weather, but we appreciated it! ;) I would be pleased to recommend Nordic Saga Tours to anyone hoping to visit Scandinavia. Thank you again, Dora. We both appreciated your guidance. Ted Quinn and Herman Groll
