Flights to and from the UK are not included in the package, so you can decide from where and when you want to leave! This gives you complete freedom of choice to adjust your travel itinerary to your needs.


Check-in at the hotel in Tromso and welcome meeting. We start to settle in, perhaps tasting a few typical dishes during the welcome dinner - everyone says that once in Norway you must try kjottkaker, a dish of meatballs, potatoes and cabbage. After dinner we can take a stroll with our eyes firmly planted on the sky. Will we be lucky on the first night?


Included: Welcome Dinner

We pick up our cars early in the morning and set off on our journey. There are many hours of transfers ahead, but the beauty of the Norwegian landscape keeps us entertained! The closer we edge to the north, the more incredible and breathtaking the views become. Once in Alta, we head straight to our accommodation for the night: a nice shower, a delicious dinner and, fingers crossed, the Northern Lights await us!

Included: car rental. Money Pot: fuel and entrance fees. Not included: meals and drinks where not specified.
day 3

North Cape

Wherever there is a slay there’s a way!

How we spend this morning depends on the weather conditions. If the weather conditions are right, we can go sledding - one of the most beautiful activities in this part of Norway. We will learn more about the history of sled dogs and how these animals - especially huskies - are trained for this activity. It will be amazing to cross the snowy landscapes via these majestic animals, and see how efficiently they work together.


Closer and closer to the North Cape

We say goodbye to Alta and drive back to Honnisvag - we are almost at the North Cape and can decide whether we want to reach Europe's northernmost point already, or wait until the morning. In any case, this evening is going to be... glacial! We go for a drink at the Ice Bar - they will give us blankets at the entrance, so it shouldn't be too cold!

Included: Car hire and entrance to the North Cape. Money Pot: Petrol and entrance fees Not Included: Meals and drinks where not specified, excursion with sled dogs at the expense of individual participants. Sled dog excursion is subject to availability (the excursion may not be available for reasons beyond WeRoad's control, e.g. bad weather conditions, sold out, etc.).

North Cape

At the edge of the world

This morning we finally reach the North Cape: here we are truly at the edge of the world - the thrill of having travelled so many kilometres to get to the northernmost point of the European continent will be hard to beat. Obviously, we have to take photos in front of the Globe; an iron sculpture representing the world - the symbol of this place.


Included: car rental. Money Pot: fuel and entrance fees. Not included: meals and drinks where not specified.

Put on your skis!

We say goodbye to the North Cape, get back into the car and drive to Alta. Today's activity also depends on the weather conditions: if there is enough snow, we can go cross-country skiing to fully appreciate the Norwegian landscapes and nature. For those who don't want to do sports, it is possible to take a walk to discover the snowy and charming town of Alta. After an intense afternoon, we treat ourselves to the local delicacy - reindeer meat anyone?

Tromso

Back to Tromso! We have several hours of driving ahead of us again, so we put on the right playlist and warm up our vocal chords - karaoke is mandatory today! We arrive in Tromso in the afternoon, just in time to take a stroll around the city and enjoy a good aperitif - perhaps it will be an opportunity to try lutefisk, a kind of marinated stockfish (for strong stomachs only!). Tonight we go in search of the aurora again?


Included: farewell dinner. Money Pot: fuel and entrance fees. Not included: meals and drinks where not specified.
