Experiences

Chase the Northern Lights in Norway

Gain an exclusive insight into the lives of the Sámi reindeer herders and witness the greatest light show on Earth as the aurora borealis dances in the sky above your campsite. 

When to go:
October – March

Head out on sleds pulled by huskies to explore the surrounding landscape, gliding along in tow of your dogs, who exhibit exceptional strength, pace, and teamwork as they wind their way through open valleys. You’ll be led by a guide, who will help you track animals. This evening camp under the stars as you await your first encounter of the awe-inspiring northern lights.  

Travel by snowmobile to a winter settlement for Sámi reindeer herders who pursue their livelihood here. You will spend the day with the Sámi and join their daily life with their reindeers to get an insight into their way of living and herding. This adventure is a unique privilege made available for only a few people every year. 

Take snowmobiles up to a frozen lake to have a go at fishing. Once on the lake you will drill through the deep ice and fish for Arctic Char. A mountain hut heated by an open fire serves as a rest and viewpoint for a fish soup lunch. After lunch, try your skills at snowshoeing under the glow of the spectacular northern lights, which dance and illuminate the sky above you. 

Board a small boat and head into the stunning Lyngen fjords for a sea safari. Whilst cruising under the gigantic cliffs of the Lyngen National Park you may spot orcas, humpback whales and dolphins. After these remarkable encounters, stop off at Glacier Bay, where you will trek to a frozen waterfall.
