AURORA SPIRIT has established the northernmost distillery in the world. The Lyngen Alps, the fjords and the Arctic wilderness are an excellent setting for making whisky and other spirits. All products are based on local herbs, berries and glacier water. Our Brand is Bivrost and comes from Old Norse language, used to describe the Northern Lights. Bivrost was believed to be a bridge between heaven and earth, guarded by the fierce god Heimdall of Norse mythology. At our spectacular visitor center, you can learn about Bivrost, Norse mythology and about making spirits under the Northern Lights. The Distillery Tour will be taken by a qualified staff member who will guide you through the process of manufacturing various types of spirits such as vodka, aquavit, gin and whisky. You’ll get a glimpse into the mysterious past of Viking age drinking customs and learn about hi-tech alcohol production on top of the world. During this exciting guided tour, you will see, feel and smell Arctic ingredients. The tour includes a complimentary tasting glass.

We depart from the Scandic Ishavshotel Tromsø at 8.45 in the morning (please be there 15 minutes before departure).

Our bus is marked “Arctic Route - Lyngen 902” and the driver will be expecting you.
This transport will bring you to the ferry at Breivikeidet approx 50 min from Tromsø. There you will exit the bus and walk on to the ferry. The ferry ride takes approx. 30 minutes. Once you have crossed the Fjord, we will be waiting for you on the other side for the last part of the transfer.

The total transfer will take about 2 hours and will drive you through one of the Northernmost beautiful scenery of the Lyngen Alps.

By 11:00 you will arrive at “Aurora Spirit” where you will first participate in a guided tour through the Distillery “The Arctic Distillation Experience”, learn about Bivrost and making spirits under the Northern Lights. After the tour, there will be time for coffee and a taste of local food in our panoramic lounge. You can also participate in other (supplementary) activities we have to offer such as the guided NATO base tour, the use of our outdoor Jacuzzi or a RIB tour on the Lyngen Fjord. (Please let us know in advance if you would like to book any of those as an extra.)
At 14:00 the bus will bring you back to Tromsø city center, arriving back at 15:45.
