We take pride in the fact that we are the first company to have started ‘The Scandinavia Winter Tours’ experience from India. It is however with great responsibility and a conscience that we have been promoting Scandinavia and Northern Lights Tour since 2013. Over the years, some places have started to feel like Disneyland and that is a matter of concern to us and to cause of an overall promotion of responsible tourism in Northern Scandinavia or anywhere else on the Planet. We come to you this year with an itinerary that gives us back the Scandinavia we had in 2013 and further increases the chances of experiencing the Northern Lights.

Being the first ones to start Northern Lights tours in India, our experience adds to the Itinerary. We maximise the Northern Lights Hunting by spending 2 nights in going after the lights in Tromso. On the other 5 nights, we wait for them to appear when the sky is dark.
Our tour starts from Stockholm. Those coming from Mumbai will arrive by the Emirates flight and will connect with the others on the flight to Lulea a sea side town in the north of Sweden and the Capital of Norbotten, the northern most county in Sweden. In the evening we would have an orientation of the itinerary of the days to come.
We will start our day with a local guide and visit some of the important sights of the town. The Old church town of Gammelstad, a UNESCO world heritage church town with a historic stone church and 424 wooden houses (mostly red in colour) which looks contrasting with the snow cover. We would then depart to cross the border over to Sweden via Haparanda. We will first visit the Santa Clause as we cross the Arctic circle. Evening would be a good time to walk around Rovaniemi.
After breakfast those who want to experience snow mobiling, will proceed to the activity center and will get into an overall clothing to enjoy a snow mobile safari (optional). The other people in this time can simply take it easy in the morning or visit Arktikkum museum. Later after lunch we will drive to Yllas the only town in the Northern Lights belt where the entire town switches off the street lights once the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) appear. This is a good indicator for the appearance of the Northern lights in the sky. Tonight, If the sky is clear we could see some Aurora Borealis in the night skies.
In the morning and still in the day light hours we would drive back to Yllas to enjoy the Arctic Dog Safari. Later, we will visit the Snow Village, where we would enter the Snow Hotel and experience the art where every room has been carved out of Ice. We will also see various sculptures made from ice. In the evening after dinner, if the sky is clear, the chances of spotting the Northern Lights are very good.
Our drive today will be one of the most scenic one as the unique scenery of the North of Finnish Lapland will be on display. We will make many scenic stops in between but our first break would be in Kilpasjirvi, the North Westernmost point of Finland and on the border with Norway. The Norwegian – Finnish mountain range known as the Lyngen Alps starts from Kilpasjirvi. The frozen lake of Kilpisjirvi is worth a photo stop and maybe also a slide. We will reach Tromso in the late afternoon and then get ready for the first Northern Lights Hunt. Tromso is known to be the best place in the world to see the lights from, and our local guide will head the hunting drive that can even last till 2 am.
Enjoy a 3-hour sightseeing tour of Tromso including a visit to Polaria where we will experience the feeding of the seals and watch a film on the Arctic’s. Later we shall take the road uphill to enjoy a breathtaking view of Tromso. Later in the evening we will go on our second hunt of the Northern Lights, his time without a guide but with an experienced Coach. (Only if the sighting hasn't been good the earlier night).
In the morning at 0830 hours, drive to visit Camp Tamok the Reindeer Centre, to try out reindeer sledding followed by a hot Sami meal for lunch. The evening is free to enjoy some last-minute souvenir shopping and to walk on the snow-covered streets of Tromso lit by night.
In the morning after an early breakfast proceed to the airport to board the flight to Oslo and then onward to Mumbai, India.
