December to March
Aurora on the border
This exciting 6-night itinerary gives you the opportunity to spend time in both Finnish Lapland and Northern Norway experiencing some amazing activities, unique accommodation and hopefully some exciting opportunities to spot the Northern Lights. This itinerary is the perfect escape for those looking for a cross-border adventure with all the things that both of these beautiful locations have to offer!
Aurora on the Border
Arrive in Tromso and take your private transfer from the Airport through the beautiful landscape of Northern Norway and across the border into Finnish Lapland. Arrive at Kilpisjarvi and check in to your beautiful chalet and get settled. Spend the evening at leisure enjoying dinner in the restaurant. When walking back to your chalet from the restaurant make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse of the Aurora overhead!
Snowmobile to the border
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before meeting your local guide and heading out by snowmobile across the snowy landscape to the 3-border point where Norway, Sweden and Finland all meet! You will be able to stand in all 3 countries at the same time! Evening at leisure.
After a day meeting the local reindeer and learning all about the herding techniques of the Sami people you will head out for an extremely special and unique adventure into the wilderness. Spend a night in your very own wilderness cabin; a cabin built on skis that can be pulled into the best locations for the Northern Lights. Set up your campfire and enjoy a night in the silence watching the skies!
Return by snowmobile this morning after breakfast in your wilderness cabin to get settled back at your chalet. Spend the day at leisure. Why not head to the sauna or take a dip in the ice hole in the lake?
Tonight you will take a trip out into the surrounding area and across the frozen lakes in an Aurora bubble sled to spot the Aurora overhead.
This morning, check out of your chalet and head back with your private transfer to the city of Tromso. Once checked into your hotel, spend the day exploring – you could visit the Polaria Museum or head up in the cable car for a view across the city. Evening at leisure to try one of the many amazing restaurants on offer.
After a leisurely breakfast you will head down to the harbour to meet your skipper to head out onto the water and into the fjords on a beautiful cruise. See the city from the water, experience the magical scenery and maybe see some of the local wildlife on the journey! Evening at leisure.
After breakfast, check out of your hotel and take your private transfer back to the airport for your return journey home or why not consider extending your trip elsewhere such as further north in Norway or perhaps add another cross-border adventure into Sweden?
