Summary

Combine one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights with superb skiing at Norway’s largest ski resort.

This ski safari suits all abilities of skier. Off the slopes, it will keep all tastes entertained too with an impressive array of unforgettable activities, while the easy travel arrangements and short transfer times make it the perfect introduction to one of our multi-centre ski safari holidays.

Trysil is blessed with fantastic snow conditions and wide, uncrowded slopes. The locals are polite, friendly and speak superb English. Steeped in ski heritage, some of the very first downhill ski racing in 1862 was hosted here and it's also very scenic, with tree-lined lower slopes and panoramic peak views of elk-filled forests.

Located between fjords, mountain peaks and islands above the Arctic Circle, Tromsø offers one of the highest probabilities of experiencing the northern lights in the world. While its extreme northerly location may conjure up images of truly Arctic conditions, Tromsø enjoys a much milder climate than you may expect compared to its neighbours at the same latitude.​

The Gulf Stream keeps the city’s temperature at a balmy average of around -5.0°C, even in the depths of winter. This means you can enjoy a wonderful range of outdoor winter activities without requiring truly specialist outdoor gear. You’ll also be able to experience vibrant nightlife and enjoy local food - fresh seafood being one of the many highlights.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Suggested Itinerary

This sample itinerary is our suggestion of how you could divide your time between Trysil and Tromsø.

All our ski safaris are completely customisable, and you can change the itinerary to suit your preferences, whether that means more skiing, more sightseeing, or pairing the city of Tromsø with a different resort or even more than one resort. Other resort suggestions include Geilo, Norefjell & Stöten - any of which would also work well with this itinerary.

Trysil

Land in Oslo Gardermoen and meet your transfer for the 2.5 hour journey to Trysil.

Spend five days in Trysil exploring the large ski area and trying out the activities on offer such as the indoor surf wave at Turistsenter's Radisson Blu, dog sledding or a horse sleigh ride into the forest for an evening meal served in a teepee style tent (Lavvu).

Take the 2.5 hour transfer back to Oslo Gardermoen for a short flight to Tromsø in the Arctic Circle. The very efficient public bus service can be taken from here into the city centre and takes just 15 minutes.

Tromsø

Spend three days in the colourful hub of Tromsø. The biggest draw here is the probability of seeing the Northern Lights - take a boat cruise on the Aurora Explorer, take the Aurora Safari Minibus or try the Tromsø Cable Car for uninterrupted views of the cityscape and potentially the spectacular light show, conditions permitting. Other not-to-be-missed activities include the Arctic Cathedral, a Sami culture experience and the Tromsø Safari with the Tromsø Husky Farm. On your final morning, take the shuttle bus to Oslo airport for your flight home.

Price Guide

From £1259pp for an 8-night Ski & Aurora Explorer Ski Safari including B&B accommodation, direct flights and transfers for 2 adults.

We're all safely back in Australia now and I just wanted to thank you for an absolutely amazing holiday. I think it's up there as one of our all time favourites. The resort was fantastic; they couldn't do enough for us and all the flight and train journeys were really good. We had an amazing week of skiing and snowboarding and everything went according to plan. Steve and the children loved their experience in Tromso and even managed a glimpse of the Northern Lights. So, I am singing your praises to all and sundry and I'll definitely look you up again when we book our next European ski holiday.
