Itinerary Description:

After arriving in Oslo, you are whisked away across the Arctic Circle and into Nordland to the Lofoten Islands. It is here amid dramatic mountain faces and shocking-blue fjords and bays that your arctic safari begins. Explore the Lofoten Islands by private yacht, with your own private chef and staff who allow you to take part in the sailing experience as much as you wish. Pass by fishing and whaling villages, spy white-tailed eagles, cast a line into the water, and take in the sights while breathing in some of the best fresh air on the planet.

Walk the friendly streets of the "Paris of the North" and stay on the quayside in Tromso before continuing the Arctic Safari in the picturesque Lyngen Alps. Personal touches at Lyngen Lodge welcome you every day from your explorations through the Norway Arctic. Skiing, fishing, kayaking, whale watching, and glacier treks are among the many adventures that await during your three days on Arctic safari in the Lyngen Alps.

Next, journey even farther north of the Arctic Circle to the far-flung Svalbard Islands. You will follow in the footsteps of trappers and whalers from days gone by, staying in the rustic luxury lodge confines of the Basecamp Hotel. The Arctic safari activities here include boating safaris, bird watching, and dog sledding in this scenic location.

This luxury Arctic safari in Norway is possible year-round, with excursions and activities customizable to suit the weather conditions and the changing atmospheres created by the midnight sun phenomenon.
