8 Day Christmas & Northern Lights in Norwegian Lapland
Why sing Christmas carols when you can live one instead? That’s what’s in store on this incredible Christmas getaway to the beautiful snow-dusted Lapland region in Norway’s northern reaches. The Northern Lights, reindeer, dog-sledding, snowmobiling, and the whimsical Snowhotel? Welcome to the real-life winter wonderland.

It begins in Oslo, the Norwegian capital, with an enlightening private tour of this forested city’s highlights, including Vigeland Park, the Royal Palace, and the fascinating Viking Ship Museum. (You’ll also have the option to visit Oslo’s Christmas markets and go for a skate.) After a plane ride north to Tromsø, Norway’s gateway to the Arctic, you’ll have the chance to witness the stirring sight of the Northern Lights over dinner from one of the world’s best vantage points: the deck of a catamaran in the Norwegian Sea. The local Sami peoples have lived in one of the world’s most unforgiving climates for centuries. See how they do it on an eye-opening introduction to Sami culture, including lasso-throwing, reindeer-sledding under the stars, and delicious traditional meals. (Cold-weather gear included.) The discovery continues later on a dog-sledding excursion across the tundra, from a wilderness center with 350 huskies! Last stop: Kirkenes, home of the fantastic Snowhotel, where, you’ll have the chance to dig into a delicious Christmas Eve dinner, catch your own Arctic king crab for lunch, and head out into the wilderness on a guided snowmobile ride.

Please note: The Kirkenes Snowhotel’s Snow Suites are not available until mid-to-late December and are generally kept open throughout the winter.
