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.

1st Day UK- Tromso

fly direct to Tromso in Arctic Norway, transfer to the city centre and check in at the Hotel Aurora which will be your base in Tromso. Take a light evening buffet supper at the hotel and then soak up your destination in the hotel's rooftop outdoor hot tub.

2nd Day Whale Watching & Northern Lights in The Lyngen Alps

After an early breakfast leave for a panoramic journey alongside snow edged fjords to Skjervoy, a fishing village close to the mouth of the Reisafjorden, where you will be kitted out for your RIB trip. Between November and January Orca, Humpbacks and occasionally Fins arrive in the fjord to spy hop, blow, breach and tail slap in a feeding frenzy that can sometimes involve up to a hundred whales. After some two and half hours you'll leave and head in to the Lyngen Alps and Francesco Damm's villa where in the early evening you'll have a short northern Lights photo workshop, collect a tripod and set off on your search for the Northern Lights. Spend the night in a Crystal Lavvo and enjoy great Aurora views straight from your bed.

3rd Day Northern Lights Safari by Husky

After a breakfast of scrambled aggs & salmon head back to the city and discover the city made famous originally as a trading port for hunters and trappers, then as the starting point for Amundsen, Nobile & Nansen’s expeditions to the North Pole. Begin your adventure on the Fjellheisen cable car which whisks you to the top of Mount Storsteinen more than 400 metres above the city for a gob smacking panoramic view of the city and its adjacent islands. Take a light lunch at the middle station’s Fjellstua Café before the 4 minute ride back down to the Arctic Cathedral; walk through the historical Skansen area close to the Polar museum and visit the iconic Arctic Cathedral. In the evening, chase the Northern Lights together with your own husky team with the night's silence disturbed only by the sound of the dogs.

Guide prices are in part based on our mid-level contract air fares which are variable in real time unlike our ground supplier contract costs which are generally fixed. We don’t do fancy lead in prices and at the time you confirm your booking always use the lowest air fare available. This may mean the confirmed price of your holiday being slightly less or more than the guide price in which case a proportionate reduction-supplement will apply. Carpe Diem = the earlier you book the better, especially for public & school holidays.
