Snowmobile in 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.
During this excursion you will travel from the old trading post and fishing village of Kjollefjord over the mountains to Mehamn. Along the way, the guides will tell you about the Sami people, the geographic and climatic conditions, what life is like on the Finnmark coast, and how the local population utilize nature in both the summer and winter months.
Some of Norway’s best instructors will ensure that proper training is given before you hop onto your own snowmobile for this once in a lifetime trip through fascinating scenery. Experience the snow-clad valleys, the fresh winter air and perhaps the mesmerizing Northern Lights in the clear, starry sky.
