A spectacular fjordside break with included aurora watching for an unforgettable New Year

» 5 day tailor-made break

» Price from: £1,705 pp incl. flights

This tailor-made break will see you head to Norway's ever-popular Malangen, a red-cabined resort on the shores of a remote fjord, for New Year celebrations with a difference. You'll stay in a room overlooking the fjord or mountains, enjoying included three-course meals and a host of optional activities, from snowmobiling and snowshoeing to evenings spent watching for the Northern Lights at a remote camp. And, your stay will include a decidedly celebratory note, with an included gala dinner and midnight firework party to see the New Year in in style. 

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » UK to Tromso

    Take your flight from the UK to Tromso and enjoy a direct shuttle transfer to Malangen, a traditional resort made up of rorbu-red huts on the shores of a remote fjord, fringed by soaring, snow-capped peaks. You'll stay in hotel room complete with panoramic fjord or mountain views, or upgrade to a four-person sea view cabin, ideal for a family or group of friends, all whitewashed wooden walls, pinewood flooring and natural materials. This evening, enjoy an included three-course dinner, enjoying such delights as fresh seafood and reindeer.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Dinner

  • Day 2 » Husky safari & New Year's Eve dinner

    Today sees you enjoy a true Scandinavian highlight – a husky safari. You'll start off with a lesson on how to control your sled before harnessing your team of eager dogs and heading off into the snow-dusted wilds. Riding two to a sled – one driving and the other enjoying the view – you'll follow remote forest trails, pausing halfway to swap drivers before enjoying a meal in the outdoors or, if it's a bit too cold, back at the dog yard around a roaring fire. Then, having returned to Malangen, perhaps enjoy a relaxing session in the glass-front sauna looking over the ice-slicked fjord, or soak in the open air hot tub (supplement applies) before getting ready for tonight's celebrations. You'll enjoy a sparkling wine toast in the cosy Naust Pub to start before heading for a five-course gala dinner accompanied by live music and, naturally, a midnight firework show.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Days 3-4 » Optional excursions

    You'll have two days free to enjoy optional excursions. Perhaps head out into the wintery wilds on a snowmobile to the remote Tamok Valley, traversing through dramatic ice-slicked forests and Arctic tundra, or rent some fat bikes for a thrilling few hours riding through the thick snow. Or, perhaps head cross-country skiing through the silent pine forests before hot drinks by an open fire, or discover the enchanting stories of the indigenous Sami people, joining a Sami storyteller in a lavvu and even feeding and lassoing a reindeer. Then, in the evening, after another three-course dinner, why not head out to cosy Camp Nikka to hunt for the Northern Lights. Set up your camera in preparation to capture the psychedelic ballet – and not to worry if you later fall asleep, as there's a Northern Lights alarm on hand should the dazzling tendrils of the aurora emerge.

    Stay: Malangen Resort, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

  • Day 5 » Tromso to UK

    After an early breakfast, take your shuttle transfer to the airport for your flight back to the UK.
