Journey Highlights

Few places on earth offer more ways to witness the Aurora Borealis than Norway and during the long winter nights this extraordinary phenomenon of coloured lights dancing across the dark sky occurs. Sighting of the Northern Lights is completely weather dependent but on this journey you are spending more than three nights above the Arctic Circle which means chances are very good. You are also introduced to the fascinating Sami people of northern Norway whose traditions include reindeer herding and fishing. Exhilarating sleigh rides through magical snow-covered terrain are a highlight as well as the little known Lofoten Islands which are a rare wilderness outpost of majestic landscapes, seabird colonies and surf-swept beaches.
