Christmas in Norway and Lapland 2018 special

The Christmas in Norway 2018 special tour combines our most loved experiences, customisable to match your dream holiday. It’s a combination of our favourite locations in Northern Norway and Kilpisjärvi, the small Finnish village at the border of Norway, Sweden and Finland.

On this holiday, you can experience a silent ride with the huskies, visit a reindeer herder’s home and of course, search northern lights. We will have some outdoor fun, play in the snow. If you are travelling with kids, we will make sure, there is a special programme for them too.

We invite all our guests to join us for a family Christmas dinner on the 24th December. We celebrate Christmas with Lapland’s and Norwegian treats. As always in our activities, it is a small group of people, maximum 10 people in the group.

Your guide Gareth is also a professional photographer, so you are guaranteed to get some very special Christmas photos this year.
