Alta Arctic Escape

4 Day Tour, from £1995 per person

Take in the beauty of the Arctic on this experiential and inclusive holiday to Alta, the City of the Northern Lights. Spend your first 2 nights in traditional Norwegian fashion in your very own cabin at Bjørnfjell Mountain Lodge where your panoramic windows allow you to gaze out over the surrounding mountains and fjords whilst you you wait for the northern lights to appear. Then, for something completely different, be whisked away to Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel to spend your final night within the artistically carved snow and ice of the Igloo Hotel - a truly enchanting and once in a lifetime experience!

Of course, it isn't just about where you'll be sleeping. While north of the Arctic Circle you'll get to try your hand at mushing a dogsled, feel the thrill of driving a snowmobile, enjoy the warmth of a nighttime bonfire in the mountains, and spending an evening aurora chasing. Enjoy all the highlights on this experience-focused arctic adventure.
