Autumn Northern Lights Watch

Malangen Resort is in one of the best Northern Lights hotspots in the Tromsø area. The “watch” gives our guests the opportunity to see the mysterious Northern Lights. We start our magical journey with a briefing about the natural phenomenon and the prevailing Northern Lights conditions before we set off to our very own wilderness camp, Camp Nikka, which is just a 20-minute walk from the resort.

Sami storytelling

Join us on a journey through Sami culture. The Sami are the indigenous people living in the northern extremities of Europe. Join us in a lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent) to hear fascinating stories about the indigenous people’s way of life, their history and beliefs, in the glow of the fire.
