The phrases 'Northern Lights', 'Midnight Sun', and 'husky dog-sledding' are some of the most evocative in the travel lexicon, but there are few places where it's possible to combine all three. On Northern Norway holidays - and in Finnmark in particular - you can enjoy just such a combination. Oh, and while you're there, why not try your hand at diving for king crabs and snowmobile safaris or meeting indigenous Sami people,
all while staying in a snow hotel? Not a bad haul of activities to notch up in a long weekend up north. The action in Finnmark is centred around two regions - the city of Alta, and the North Cape, both of which offer a wide range of wacky things to do and decent hotels. The gateway to this vast region is Alta, known as the City of the Northern Lights. There are a couple of places to stay here, and this is also the place to enjoy dog-sledding and snowmobile safaris, either as day trips or including overnight stays in wilderness cabins. Dog-sledding is one of the most magical experiences imaginable, and seeing the huskies' sheer exuberance and desire to run is very special.
