Things to do
Dog-sledding Across the Arctic Wilderness - Take your time to get to know the hyper active huskies as they prepare to pull you and your sled across glorious arctic landscapes while you keep lookout for the indigenous Norway wilderness. Make your own path along the trackless northern Norway with the uniquely wonderful arctic winter light as your backdrop.
Snowmobile Safari in Tromso - Gliding your way to heights of about 875m for a lavish view of the Tromso area, try your hand at a bit of ice fishing at the top of the mountain. No matter what you are yet to see, this tour promises to be one which you will reminisce for years to come.
Hurtigruten Cruise to the Snow Hotel - This iconic cruise takes you through amazing fjords and connects you to isolated villages inaccessible by road. After a tour of Norway's glorious coast, spend a night or two in the wondrously quirky snow hotel where everything you can imagine and more is made of ice.
Northern Lights - An experience that largely rides on your luck, it is one which will leave you awestruck and stay with you forever. A mesmerising show of multiple colours sprayed across the black sky, this is a natural phenomenon which is nothing short of magic.
Best time to visit November - March
Norwegian weather has something for everyone. In summer there's a fair chance of bright and sunny days, and temperatures rise for you to take the fluffy jacket off. May to early September is well lit up and the spring-summer is in full swing. Cascading waterfalls and a burst of colourful flowers all around the country gives it a surreal look. To untravel Norway, we would say this is the best time. The midnight sun shows up and the days are longer as you travel northwards of Norway. Between September and January the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights can often be seen. In winter temperatures drops to freezing point and daylight is limited to a few hours.
