Malangen Resort is one of our favourites and has picked up rave reviews from our clients, largely due to its remote, fjordside location. Relaxed and isolated, it’s the perfect place to spend some time beneath the piercing blues of the Norwegian winter sky and, as it’s so far from any major settlements, a great spot from which to see the Northern Lights.
Day 1: Tromso
Fly from Gatwick to Tromso and make your way to the Clarion Collection Hotel With, located in the centre of town, on the harbour. Simply sample the nightlife and restaurants of downtown Tromso, or we can arrange a Northern Lights tour on your very first night.
Day 2: Transfer to Malangen Resort
The next day, choose from a range of excursions, including whale watching and reindeer sledding. In the late afternoon, transfer to Malangen Resort, about a 90-minute drive south of Tromso, and enjoy dinner at the hotel’s restaurant. Stay in a hotel room, featuring excellent fjord views, or upgrade to a traditionally built, red-timbered Fisherman’s cottage, complete with a living room, kitchen, three bedrooms and fjordside balconies.
Day 3: Malangen Resort
Today you’ll have the choice of relaxing in the resort – making the most of the panoramic sauna – or enjoying any number of exciting excursions. We recommend either a husky safari, where you’ll get to drive your own dogsled team, or a snowmobile tour through the Arctic wilderness to a traditional Sami lavvu (herdsmen’s tent). In the evening, head to nearby Camp Nikka for a Northern Lights guided tour.
Days 4-5: Return to Tromso
Spend the day at Malangen Resort before travelling back to Tromso for a final night (returning to the Clarion With), before departing for home the following day.
