4th installment of our latest adventure was into the Arctic Circle for 11 days, 6 - 16 Nov 2014, starting at Tromso Norway.  

Sommaroy Norway - Days 8, 9, 10 and 11

Norway Travel Locations

On day eight we ventured off to our last location Sommaroy Norway for 4 days.  We stayed at the Sommaroy Arctic Hotel.  This was one of the best locations to view the Auroras, go dog sledding and whale watching.  There are lots of places to hike, get away from the city lights and only 1 hour from Tromso.  Highly recommended.  If you don't have a car and want to stay close to Tromso, this is the place to go.

Northern Lights - We had 2 good aurora nights during our stay in Sommaroy.  One night was especially active, the locals told us it was an awesome night - one of the very best.  

Dog Sledding at the Villmarkssenter - This was our fist time dog sledding, definitely want to do one of the over night or multi-day excursions.

Whale Watching - On day 10 of our Norway journey, we took a whale watching excursion aboard the MY Jacqueline originating from the Port of Sommaroy Norway.  The trip was about 4 - 6 hours.  We saw several Orcas on the trip and even managed to get a glimpse of a baby Orca.  The Arctic views were also spectacular. 

Here are a few photo highlights
