All Our Norway Holidays

5 Day holiday high up over the Arctic Circle in a privately owned villa surrounded by 'crystal' lavvos in the quiet snow and the empty vastness of the Lyngen Alps. Marked by soaring peaks, and clear dark nights that show a trillion more stars than you’d ever see from a city, Tromso & The Lyngen Alps are right bang in the middle of what’s known as the Aurora Arc; the latitudinal span either side of the Arctic Circle best for spotting the Northern Lights. And for R & R Tromso is a Uni city with a mix of traditional weatherboard buildings and uber modern ones such as the Arctic Cathedral and Polaria Museum, lots of fun bars and restaurants with seafood to die for.

Franceso's Lyngen Alps Home

Francesco's House is by a fjord in the foothills of the Lyngen Alps facing north west for maximum Aurora viewing. Rooms in the villa have Jensen beds, a coffee grinder or you can stay in one of his more rudimentary glass roofed igloos with a wood burning stove and outside loos just a couple of metres away. Matresses and bedding are the same as in the house.
