MINNEAPOLIS – Wherever ‘home’ is, grey skies will occasionally give anyone a case of the ‘blues’ and thoughts of escaping to a far-away land for some winter fun. One trip to Norway with expert tour operator Borton Overseas, and travelers will be longing for those incredible views and dreaming about nights spent in Igloo hotels. If that’s not enough to connect winter enthusiasts with their inner child, try rolling around in the snow with pups as guests get the chance to experience pure winter bliss during a husky safari!
Travelers arrive in Oslo, Norway before departing for Alta. Guests are soon whisked away from the city lights as the group travels through gorgeous landscapes, eventually reaching clear skies and hopefully catching views of the breathtaking Aurora lights. Day four of the trip treats guests to a Husky safari, during which they will learn how the dogs are trained before getting the chance to try driving a sled of their own! Making their way to the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel by way of snowmobile, travelers will be delighted as they are swept through enchanted forests and sparkling plains, complete with the chance to catch the Northern Lights along the way. Cuddle up with a blanket and loved one, as this magical night spent in an ice hotel will be a memory to cherish for years to come.
As the adventures near an end, travelers make their way back to the Rica Alta hotel before transferring to the airport for return to Oslo. Borton Overseas offers this trip as a seven day itinerary or, for those with more time, travelers can choose to extend the stay in Oslo or in Norwegian Lapland with a visit to Karasjok, the Sami capital, or a day trip to the North Cape.
