Itinerary

Arrive in Oslo & Fly to Tromsø

The adventure starts at the Oslo airport at noon. After meeting your guide and the group, board the Tromsø-bound flight. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for the next three nights, take time to settle in and then have a welcome meeting in the hotel lobby. Stroll into town together and start the trip with a great dinner, then walk around town to see if you are lucky enough to see the Northern Lights on the first day.

Go Whale Watching & Chase Northern Lights

After breakfast, head out for a whale-watching boat trip. Whales are wild and unpredictable so if none appear near Tromsø, continue by boat and head for the fjords to seek out other animals, like arctic fox and reindeer. This evening, enjoy an early dinner together before heading into the winter night to chase the Northern Lights for several hours. Although seeing the Northern Lights is never guaranteed, there's a great chance to catch these unbelievable colors moving across the arctic sky during one of the three nights in Tromsø.

Snowshoe, Hike & Explore Tromsø

Start a bit later this morning, after a long night of watching the Northern Lights, with breakfast at the hotel. Then head out for a full day of hiking and snowshoeing during daylight hours, crossing over rolling hills and fields iced in a blanket of sparkling snow. In the evening, take time to walk around Tromsø and its historical center that showcases centuries-old wooden houses, and then enjoy dinner at one of the local restaurants.

Fly to Trondheim & Journey to Oppdal

After breakfast, check out of the hotel and say goodbye to the arctic city of Tromsø. Next take a flight to Trondheim, the third largest city in Norway. Visit the city center and its famed Nidaros cathedral, a stunning stone church built over the burial site of Saint Olav, the King of Norway in the 11th century. Then drive for two hours to the mountain town of Oppdal, to check into the hotel, home for the next three nights.

Go Dogsledding in Nerskogen

Start with a hearty breakfast to prepare for a full day of dogsledding in the village of Nerskogen at the foot of the spectacular Trollheimen mountain range. Spend some time getting to know the dogs, the equipment, and how it all works, and then head out for an exciting morning. Have lunch at a dog camp and continue to enjoy the dogsledding. In the afternoon, take a transfer back to the hotel, to rest before dinner in the hotel's dining room.

Enjoy a Day of Norwegian Winter Activities

Today is all about having fun outdoors, learning how the Norwegians spend their days in the cold winters and why they're so good at winter sports. Take your pick between any one of the many popular winter activities in Norway: alpine skiing in one of the best ski-lift areas in Norway, cross-country skiing in Trollheimen National Park, or ice skating or curling. After the thrilling day, enjoy the spa or sauna back at the hotel, or unwind at the "after-ski" bar. This evening, enjoy dinner together at a restaurant in town.

Explore the Wilderness of Storlidalen

After breakfast, head out to explore the wilderness of Storlidalen, a remote valley with its peaks and forests dressed in white. Once in Storlidalen, choose from various activities for the day. Enjoy a snowy hike, hit local mountains with snowshoes, enjoy a day on cross-country skis, or discover the myriad of groomed trials. If you're feeling adventurous, spend the night in an igloo or a modern version of a traditional Sami lavvo — fitted with a glass roof for stargazing. Alternatively, you can opt to sleep in the hotel and enjoy the farewell dinner in the (indoor) dining room.

Depart from Oppdal & Ride the Rails to Oslo

Enjoy a hearty breakfast and warm shower this morning, especially if you braved the elements outside the night before. Then leave the hotel at 8.45am and drive to the Oppdal train station to catch the 10am train to Oslo. Alight the train either at Oslo Gardermoen International Airport (at 2.30pm), or the Oslo Central train station (at 3pm). Train scheduled are subject to change without our notice.
