  • Day 1: Huskies & Northern Lights

    Arrive to Kirkenes Airport and transfer by shuttle to your hotel in Kirkenes, located 400 km (240 miles) above the Arctic Circle. 
    In the late afternoon, get ready for your first real Arctic adventure—a thrilling dog-sledding tour through the Pasvik Valley along Norway’s north-eastern border. If conditions are right, you may even see the northern lights dancing across the night sky!* This activity includes dinner in a traditional Sami tent, or lavvu.

    *The northern lights are a natural phenomenon and sightings cannot be guaranteed.

    Kirkenes, you have an hour at the hotel to refresh and gather your belongings for your overnight at the Snow Hotel.

  • Day 3: A Treat for the Taste Buds

    Spend the morning warming up in the Snow Hotel’s sauna, enjoying a hearty breakfast and visiting the on-site reindeer park before returning to the hotel in Kirkenes. Shortly after lunchtime, it's time for your final Arctic activity—a King Crab Safari! Your guides will take you by snowmobile-sleigh over the frozen sea to the spot where you will assist with pulling up today’s catch. The reward for your efforts will be an enticing snack of freshly cooked crab in a rustic fishing hut.

    After returning to your hotel in Kirkenes, spend the rest of the evening at your leisure.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Will stay in memory forever

We had an amazing time in Kirkenes. Although we couldn't stay in the Snow Hotel due to dripping, we stayed in their lovely cabins. The staff made us feel like family and everything was great. The dogs + dog sledding was special, so too the crabbing (will not be able to eat another crab after eating the fresh king crab!) Unfortunately we missed out on the chasing the northern lights, on snowmobile, as the river was too slushy. All in all, it was a very special thing to do, and will stay in our memory forever.

Pleasantly surprised

We really didn't know what to expect on this tour and were pleasantly surprised by the quality accommodations, service, and events! The staff was great - everyone!
