Delve deep into the arctic on this incredible 4 night adventure to Norway. After a night in the country's capital, travel north of the Arctic Circle to the village of Kirkenes, located right by both the Russian and Finnish borders. Spend one memorable night at -4°C in an ice room at the famous Snowhotel, and then cosy up for two nights in your cosy Gamme Cabin. Experience the finest that winter has to offer with a dog sledding or king crab safari, snowshoeing excursions and of course go hunting for one of natures most magical phenomenons: the northern lights.
Today, take a short flight from London to Oslo where you'll overnight at an airport hotel before continuing your journey up to arctic Norway.
This morning, fly from Oslo to Kirkenes where you will be transferred to the Snowhotel for your exclusive stay in one of the dreamlike ice rooms. The Snowhotel is kept at a cool -4°C but don't worry, you'll be provided everything you need to stay warm. This afternoon, take a tour of the Snowhotel and enjoy an unforgettable dinner in the main restaurant and a nightcap at the Ice Bar before an unique night spent in complete arctic stillness. (B, D)
This morning, check out of your ice room in the Snowhotel and head into the wild arctic. Choose from an exhilarating dogsled ride through the scenic surroundings over the fjord and across the mountain plateau or ride in a sled pulled by a snowmobile out onto the fjord ice in search of king crab. In the evening, check into your Snowhotel Gamme cabin, inspired by the traditional hunting and fishing huts found in the Sami wilderness areas in the arctic. Tonight, enjoy a authentic 3-course dinner before heading into the dark, far from light pollution in search of the elusive northern lights. (B, D)
After breakfast, strap on a pair of snowshoes and take a trip up into the unspoilt mountain ranges above the Snowhotel. Your guide will show you the best way to move in the snowshoes and will lead you through different types of snow, pointing out animal tracks as you go. At the summit, take in spectacular, panoramic views of the area.
This evening, why not double your chances of seeing the northern lights dance across the sky by embarking on another aurora hunt by bus, snowmobile or dogsled? Speak with your Norway Travel Specialist about tailor making your holiday. (B, D)
