Leave the beaten tracks behind and immerse yourself in the long polar night. This winter activity gives adventurous travellers the chance to experience snow shoeing or hiking under a billion stars and the glow of the moon. If the sky is clear and if the stars are out, you may even see the Northern Lights! Listen to the silence and feel what the Arctic winter and polar night is all about. The most intimate beauty is revealed to the most adventurous night owls. This night time activity includes a warm home-made meal, thermal suits and boots and snowshoes. Your guide will take photos of your activity and share them with you after the tour in web-sized resolution. After enjoying a homemade hot chocolate we'll take you back to your hotel in south Senja.
