Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Meet your private driver at the airport and head to your hotel in the heart of Oslo. The rest of the day is free for you to unwind after your flight and explore the surrounding sights.

  • Take a private food tour of Oslo. You’ll find all the best spots to try traditional Norwegian cuisine and get an insider’s perspective on the city’s gastronomic scene.

  • Fly to Tromsø and watch the changing landscape from your window as you head into the Arctic. Once in the city, you’ll meet your guide for a private walking tour, including a visit to the Polar Museum to hear stories of Arctic explorers. In the evening, board your private catamaran and sail through the fjords in search of the northern lights.

  • Leaving early in the morning, board a specially designed hybrid electric boat for a whale-watching trip. You might see humpback whales and orcas in these herring-rich waters.

  • Travel through the Arctic landscape to a secluded lodge where you can spend the rest of your day resting and exploring your home for the next few days.

  • Explore the tundra from the back of a dog sled as you’re pulled by a team of excited huskies. Your personal musher will navigate your team of huskies across the snowy landscape, and you’ll stop along the way for a hearty hot lunch. In the evening, take advantage of the lack of light pollution and join an expert guide in searching for the northern lights.

  • Mount a snowmobile and explore the region’s mountains and frozen lakes, with stops at viewpoints on the way. You also have the chance to pause and go ice fishing and snowshoeing. After dark, you have another opportunity to see the aurora borealis.

  • Meet your private driver and head deeper into the Arctic wilderness, entering the Alta region. Once at your hotel, you can spend the rest of the day relaxing in the natural landscape. In the evening, try to stay awake to spot the northern lights from your bedroom’s glass ceiling.

  • Meet members of a local Sámi group for a sleigh ride pulled by reindeer. Then, head to a traditional lavvu (tent) for a chance to learn about the history of their rich culture. Hear stories and share a hot drink around the fire before heading out on a reindeer sled ride through the winter scenery.

  • Take a short taxi ride to the airport for your flight home.
