This journey takes you beyond the Arctic Circle into the wild lands of Norway’s Finnmark. Far from the crowds, where the sun disappears behind the horizon for two months a year, this region’s immaculate snowy landscapes sit under the spectacle of the Northern Lights. The trip begins and ends with a stopover in Tromsø, the area’s largest city which you’ll get to know through cosy cafes, wintry wonders and a trip to The Polar Museum. After your first night here, you’ll head to the North Cape region on an overnight cruise on the Coastal Express. A day of exploring this picturesque area is followed by an evening beside the water in a private hot tub as you gaze up at the mystical Northern Lights. Your next stop is a husky farm in Alta, where you’ll take the reins and learn to steer a pack of huskies through the snowy landscapes.
Your final destination lies in the Lyngen Alps, a pristine region that you’ll traverse by snowmobile and enjoy through the vast window of your cabin beside the fjord. Along the way, our local Concierge will be on hand to help with any questions, recommendations or last-minute changes of plans.


Everything is 100% tailored to you

Flight to Tromsø

Your eight-day adventure to Norwegian Lapland begins with a three-and-a-half-hour flight to Tromsø, the largest city beyond the Arctic Circle. When you land, pick up your hire car and drive to your friendly hotel in the city centre. Relax this afternoon in the outdoor sauna with breathtaking views of the city.


A Night on the Coastal Express

You have the whole day today to discover Tromsø and its surroundings. Bundle up for a walk in the bright, fresh air before ducking into the warmth of a cosy cafe, or head out to sea for a whale-watching trip. We’ll also get you tickets for The Polar Museum, which traces the history of trappers and explorers in the Arctic regions. Inside, you’ll find an entire room dedicated to the polar expeditions of celebrated explorer Roald Amundsen. As the day draws to a close, you’ll head to the port to board the Coastal Express. It departs from the mainland in the early evening, so you can enjoy dinner on board before retiring to your cabin for a good night’s sleep as you’re transported through the Arctic Circle.


North Cape Magic

Breakfast is on board this morning before you disembark on the island of Magerøya in Honningsvåg, the closest village to the North Cape. In the North Cape Museum, a video will show you how the region changes through the seasons before you enjoy the exhibition that documents the area’s tourist history. You can also visit the ecumenical chapel of St Johannes, which is famous for its weddings, and take in dazzling ocean views from the Grotto, a terrace that’s been dug into the rock. When you’ve finished exploring, make the short drive to Sarnes where you’ll spend the night. Your property on the water’s edge gives you privacy and freedom to enjoy your incredible surroundings, especially from your outdoor hot tub – if you’re lucky, you might spot the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.


Scenic Journey to Alta

Your journey continues south to Alta today, along a beautiful road where white hilly expanses stretch to the horizon, dotted here and there with streams and groves. You’ll spend two nights just outside the city in a small sled dog farm managed by passionate mushers.


Dog Sledding

Today you’ll put your mushing skills to the test during a magical dog sled ride. In the company of a musher and a pack of huskies, you’ll set off into the snow and learn how to drive a team through the white landscapes.


Northern Lights by the Fjord

Before you leave today, take a detour to Alta to see its UNESCO World Heritage-listed rock art, which dates back to between 4200 and 500 BC. When you’re ready, drive along the coast to the Lyngen Alps region, about four hours away. This well-kept secret is located beside the fjord in an untouched snowy region. You’ll spend the night here in a small seaside cabin whose large bay window is perfect for taking in the view and (hopefully…) watching the Northern Lights.


Snowmobile Safari

Before you hit the road again today, you’ll head out for a snowmobile safari in the middle of the Lyngen Alps. This outing in the great outdoors lets you cruise across the snow as you take in the sights. When you return, enjoy lunch around the fire before getting back in your car and returning to Tromsø across the Lyngen Alps. You’ll spend your last night in Norway in a hotel in the city’s downtown area.


Return Flight

Today you’ll return your car to the airport before boarding your flight back to the UK.

A la carte


If you have a few more days to spare, we recommend extending your stay in the incredible Lyngen Alps. The Scandinavian Alps extend to the Lyngen peninsula, along a fjord where dolphins swim and migratory birds flap their wings overhead. Here, you can ski down mountains rising high above the glacial valleys with the azure sea as your horizon. This is also a place where fishermen and Sámi people have been able to preserve their traditions and heritage. Fish for wild cod in the middle of nature, hit the slopes on perfect snow, and gaze up at the sky for a last chance to see the mystical Northern Lights.
