Do you ever get bored of the mundane nature of life? If so, start getting excited because here at Pacific Holidays we offer many services that are designed to spark the seed of adventure into your life. While our clients are primarily from the United States, we enthusiastically accommodate people from all over the world to give them experiences that last a lifetime. So, regardless of whether you’re a 25 year old frequent adventurer from Germany, or a 65 year old from America who has always longed for adventure, we are ready to serve you! In fact, we currently have an adventure trip to Arctic Europe that’s perfect for seeing the northern lights or experiencing long summer days.
Arriving In Oslo
Located on the southern coast, Oslo is the capital of Norway. This is where your adventure will begin. Upon arriving in Oslo, you’ll be checked into the centrally located Comfort Hotel where you’ll bed down for a lovely evening to get ready for the rest of your trip. The next day you’ll have the freedom to explore Oslo which is known for its museums and green spaces. Or, you can also take optional walking or coach tours to see the best of the city.
Off To Adventure in Tromsø
Now, this is where the adventure truly begins. After exploring Oslo a little bit it’s time to head to Tromsø which will be the base camp for the remainder of your adventure. Tromsø is perfectly located in the peaks of the Lyngen Alps. But don’t worry it’s not a completely remote village. In fact, it’s the largest city north of the Arctic Circle and is a university town that blends urban living into the wilderness.
Why Tromsø though? Because it is perfectly located to see the northern lights and to truly get out into the Arctic Circle!
Activities in Tromsø
Every day we offer optional activities to make the most of your trip. On your first day in Tromsø you can opt to chase the Northern lights on a 6 hour excursion. Our guides will pick you up and take you to an area with the perfect scenery and lights for the perfect pictures. You’ll also learn about Northern lights on your chase to find the perfect spot and when you finally do find that spot, our guides can help you set your cameras up to take the absolute best photos. If we have extra time, we also have “butt boards” which are perfect for sleighing down hills and having a little extra fun. When you have the perfect Northern light pictures we may also head to our lavvo where you will have the chance to get warm around a bonfire and make some delicious marshmallows.
The next day get ready for a Snowmobile Safari. We follow a 15 km trail climbing 625m upward into the mountains. You’ll ride in pairs up to a frozen lake. If time permits, you’ll have the chance to try ice fishing. When we’re done with this exciting adventure you’ll head back and have a hot meal served to you in the lavvu.
The last day in Tromsø you will have the opportunity to go on a guided snowshoe trip to explore the island of Kvaloya where you’ll have an opportunity to see the arctic wildlife (if they want to be seen). After hiking a scenic route through arctic countryside we’ll enjoy hot drinks (weather dependent) before heading back to our base.
For less than fifteen hundred dollars per person this is the perfect opportunity to take a chance and explore the wild side of life. Our prices include traveling costs upon arrival, accommodation, and food. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to see the very best of Arctic Europe so make sure to contact us for more information and to reserve your spot!
