Day 1: Fly Dublin to Tromso. Transfer by airport bus to the city centre and your comfortable 3* hotel where you stay for 1 night B&B.
Day 2: [breakfast, dinner]. After a good breakfast you have the day at leisure to explore Tromsø. You will be spoilt for choice with the Tromsø Museum, Polar Museum, Polaria Aquarium, Arctic Cathedral and more on offer. At some point during the day we suggest you pop into a local supermarket and pick up some snacks and groceries for your 3 nights in Malangen as there are no shops near the resort. In the evening you will be collected from central Tromsø and driven the 1.25 hrs to Malangen Resort. On arrival you settle in to your Sea View Apartment followed by dinner in the restaurant in the main building.
Day 3: [breakfast, light lunch, dinner]. After breakfast spend the morning on a Dog Sledding Tour which starts with a lesson in how to manage and drive your own husky team, drive in pairs (change drivers half way) and ends with a delicious hot meal by an open fire. The afternoon is at leisure in the resort. You could decide to use the Public Sauna between 4-6pm (free for Project Travel guests but must be pre-booked) or rent ‘fat tyre’ mountain bikes locally. After dinner join a local Northern Lights Watch around the camp fire.
Day 4: [breakfast , light lunch, dinner]. You have the morning at leisure before your 12.00 noon departure for your Snowmobile Wilderness Tour (min age 12 as passenger, 18 as driver, full driving licence required) which is followed by a light lunch. You return in the early evening in plenty of time for your final dinner at the Resort, during which hopefully the Lights will dance overhead. (Note: If snowmobiling is not possible due to the age(s) of your child(ren), we can provide a credit. Discuss options with us, changes to the package and price may apply).
Day 5: Morning transfer back to Tromsø where you stay for 1 night B&B in a central hotel. Continue to explore the city at leisure. Option to book a Northern Lights excursion that evening – we suggest the Dinner Cruise, Northern Lights Hunt or Photo Tour. Find out more about the options of tours to take in Tromso.
