For families keen to experience the Northern Lights and take part in some unique activities the Sortland Aurora and Wildlife Explorer offers a wonderful itinerary set against the magnificent backdrop of the Norwegian coast. In addition to the nightly aurora hunts the holiday includes a trip to a space station and a reindeer homestead alongside more simple pleasures such as tobogganing and snowman building, but for nature lovers the highlight has to be the whale safari. Aside from moderating the climate, the Gulf Stream also ensures a rich sea life which can be unforgettably explored by exciting RIB boat.
With the sea here hosting minke whales, humpbacks, sperm whales, and even orca you’ll rarely get a better chance to see these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
For many dog sledding is unmatched in its ability to evoke the sense of arctic adventure. For the more adventurous family, our Family Wilderness husky safari and the ICEHOTELL trip offers the opportunity to really explore the beautiful frozen wilderness of northern Sweden. Quickly forging a bond with your friendly team of dogs you will glide over this picture postcard winter landscape staying in a number of different wilderness cabins during your adventure. The holiday also includes another Swedish highlight with the added bonus of a visit to the world famous Icehotel.
Sculpted fresh each winter from Ice from the nearby river, you will receive a tour of the hotel marvelling at the amazing Ice Sculptures and intricately designed rooms.
