Northern Lights Autumn Break

Northern Lights by Alex Conu, Visit NorwayExciting autumn break in Arctic Norway!

A 4 nights trip starting with a night in Oslo before you head north to the Arctic town of Kirkenes. Join the earliest dogsled and snowmobile tours in Europe. Stay in a beautifully designed wooden cabin & enjoy 2 Arctic dinners at Laven restaurant, whose concept is based on short-travelled, pure local ingredients.
Last but not least: October and November are said to be the best months to see the Northern Lights! As far away from big cities and crowds of people you can get, with no mass tourism, Kirkenes is truly a quiet and peaceful destination, offering you good chances to see the nature´s own light show: the Northern Lights.

This is an individual/unescorted trip (you do not travel with a group)

You can add additional nights & sightseeing tours in Oslo to the trip.

Prices from NOK 12000 per person
