We Love

  • Spend two days in the cosmopolitan capital, Oslo, exploring its unique architecture, wealth of culture and fantastic restaurants.
  • Next, fly to Northern Norway to stay at the amazing Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel - the world’s northernmost ice hotel.
  • We've included a dog sledding expedition and snowmobile safari - a fantastic way to explore the Winter Wonderland scenery!

Your Destination

A magical land of glass-like fjords, dense forests and soaring mountains, Northern Norway is a true Winter wonderland.  Reaching up across the Arctic Circle into Lapland, this sparsely populated region is home to reindeer, huskies and the once nomadic Sami people.

As the Aurora lights appear in the night sky, Norwegian Lapland becomes an adventure playground blanketed  in glistening snow, with endless opportunity for discovery and wonder.

This tour will take you to Alta - the municipal capital of Norway's northernmost county Finnmark that lies next to beautiful Alta Fjord. This charming town has a quieter than popular Tromso, offering visitors a really authentic Norwegian experience. The world's first Northern Light observatory was built here at the end of the 19th century and has earned Alta the name "The Town of the Northern Lights."

Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Oslo
Arrival in Oslo according to your flight itinerary and transfer (not included) to the city centre.

Surrounded by mountains and the sea, Oslo is Europe's fastest-growing capital, with a palpable sense of reinvention ! Its remarkable Opera and the new “Bar code” have redesigned the city’s architectural signature. However, nature is everywhere and you are never far from the forest, the fjord or even cross country ski slopes.

Accommodation at the Thon Terminus (or similar).

Day 2 - Oslo
Scandinavian breakfast at your hotel.

Discover Oslo at leisure. This city offers many well known sights such as Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Viking ship museum, Holmenkollen ski jump or the Munch museum.

Accommodation at the Thon Terminus (or similar).

Day 3 - Departure to Alta
Scandinavia breakfast at your hotel.

Transfer to Oslo airport (not included) and flight to Alta (included.)

Arrival and transfer (not included) to the city centre.

Alta is a city in Norway, in the Finmark county, by the Altafjord. Located above the arctic circle, the polar nights are long and offer ideal conditions to observe the beautiful northern lights. It will be the perfect basecamp to escape your daily life and get an experience as a Lapland native over a long weekend.

Accommodation at the Thon Hotel Alta.

Day 4 - Dogsledding
Scandinavian breakfast at your hotel.

In the morning, you will follow the path of the Nordic mushers and go on a dogsledding adventure. Transfer included from the Scandic Alta in the city-center to a husky farm just outside of town, where you will meet the dogs !

Your journey will bring you across forests and along the Alta river. You can decide to either drive or sit in the sled and alternate during the 15 km long trip (40min to 60min).

Transfer back to the city cente of Alta.

You will have your afternoon at leisure to discover Alta. We recommend visiting the Cathedral with its northern light inspired shape and the Alta museum. It offers a large panorama of the local culture and of the traditional industries in the area that are highly connected to the Sami people and fishermen.

Accommodation at the Thon Hotel Alta.

Day 5 - Snowmobile Safari and night at the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel
Scandinavian breakfast at your hotel.

First part of the morning at leisure. We recommend having some lunch before the activity.

11h00 - Departure in a minibus (transfer included) to Sørrisniva Igloo hotel, the departure point of your snowmobile safari across the wild and beautiful landscapes of Finnmark .

The first part of the trip follows a road but, you will quickly head towards untouched nature in one of Europe’s wildest area. You will be back at Sørrisniva at 14h00.

For the afternoon, enjoy the warm common areas and living room of Sørrisniva. You are welcome to visit the ice hotel. All the rooms are unique and decorated by local artists. Don’t miss the ice chapel and the ice bar ! If you wish, you can borrow snowshoes for free (according to availability) at the reception, for a walk in the surroundings.

In the late afternoon, a table has been reserved for you at the restaurant. You will enjoy a fantastic 2 course dinner, prepared with local products. You will access your room after the dinner.

The rooms are made of ice but you will have no problem falling asleep under a temperature of -5°C thanks to your thermal sleeping bags. The beds are made of snow and ice with reindeers' skins to isolate the cold.
We advise bringing woollen underwear.
