Spotlight on Norwegian nature and Sami culture with new escorted voyage

July 13, 2018 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Winter-lovers can indulge their every passion on 50 Degrees North’s new escorted 14-day voyage and tour – The Arctic Light, Aurora and Hurtigruten. Led by a member of staff, travellers venture into the heart of Norway and Finnish Lapland, by classic train across picturesque plateau and sailing deep into the Arctic Circle.

The tour’s overland component kicks off with one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys –the Bergen Railway from Oslo to Bergen – your 7-hour introduction to the epic fjords, waterfalls, mountain peaks and forests of Norway. Take it all in from your classy carriage and comfortable seat, with free wifi so you can share the scenery with jealous friends as you go.

The second major leg is Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage onboard the MS Finnmarken. With snow-clad mountains reflecting the polar twilight as your backdrop, the voyage stops at several classic coastal villages including the Art Nouveau architecture town of Ålesund and the Royal City of Trondheim. On your way to a mere 2,000 kilometres from the Geographical North Pole receive your (optional) Arctic Circle baptism by Njord, the ruler of the Seven Seas, in the form of an ice cube down your front or back!

Like life, 50 Degrees North’s ‘ is a journey not a destination. It’s punctuated by a string of incredible smaller experiences, like learning how to catch, cook, and most importantly eat the Arctic King Crab, and overnighting at the Kirkenes Snow Hotel and one of the iconic Glass Igloos and the Wilderness Lodge at comfortable room temperature, admiring the Northern Lights and millions of stars in a crystal clear sky.

The adventure and the culture highlight of this trip has to be the visit to a traditional Sami village. Think reindeer safari, snowmobile lessons, a cultural museum visit and lodgings – a log cabin in traditional Finnish style complete with fireplace and sauna. Only one thing remains to be done to complete this incredible adventure – a private lesson and self-driven dogsled excursion.
