A taste of Lapland – Hurtigruten land excursion
This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the cruise booking process, with prices and details.
This excursion starts with a drive through the fishing village of Kjollefjord, where you can stop to take pictures. Afterwards you continue into the mountains, where you’ll head to a Sami camp and meet the Utsi family, who will welcome you into their lavvo dressed in traditional costumes.
You will hear about the traditions and the Sami people’s way of life, and will also get to hear traditional Sami joik (song). You then go out to see the reindeer where you can try your hand at lassoing. The trip continues up to the Finnmark plateau, 300 meters above sea level, where you might also see reindeer in their natural habitat.
