Overview

Join us for an exciting and active winter adventure in Norway. The trip includes spending over a week north of the Arctic Circle participating in unique polar activities amidst a backdrop of stunning landscapes. After two nights in Oslo, we fly north to Bodo where we board a boat for an overnight cruise amidst the spectacular Lofoten Islands. We then spend several days exploring the area with snowshoe hikes, a northern lights safari, a scenic bus tour, a fjord cruise, a reindeer sled ride and an evening absorbing Sami culture while eating dinner seated around a warm fire in a traditional Sami tent. We then fly north to the Island of Svalbard at 79 degrees north latitude where we will enjoy an all day cruise to a former mining village, during which, if we are lucky, we may also get to see polar bears. We will then spend a day dog sledding, and exploring ice caves inside a glacier before we fly back to Oslo. Although we cannot guarantee you will see the northern lights, we have provided as many opportunities as possible to maximize the chances of experiencing this stunning natural wonder. Accommodations include several nights in 3-4 star hotels, a night aboard a cruise ship,. and cozy former mining cabins.
