Snowmobile trip in the Polar night – Join an unforgettable snow mobile trip to one of Europe’s most extreme and exciting natural areas.

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 Mehamn, the world’s northernmost mainland town, located on the often wild and stormy Finnmark coast, over the mountains to the old trading post and fishing village of Kjollefjord. 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. In Kjollefjord you rejoin the Hurtigruten ship to continue your voyage.
