As the days get shorter, we inch closer to the colder months of winter and are reminded of all the reasons we either love or hate the chilliest of seasons—but the sustainable, luxury travel coordinators at Up Norway want to make this winter your most magical of all time.
There’s nothing more enchanting than the great Northern Lights. Whether they’re a top priority on your bucket list or something you can’t wait to see again, Up Norway’s newly-launched travel packages offer some truly magnificent opportunities.
Three distinct journeys are curated to immerse you in the wonders of the arctic with dog sledding, snowmobiling, whale watching and of course, a wonderful view of the northern lights.
No personal planning is necessary for these journeys. Everything is taken care of from the moment you touch down to the moment you depart.
Northern Lights at 70 Degrees North brings a five-day adventure that leaves room for plenty of relaxation. The trip includes dinner, reindeer sledding and ice fishing among other activities, and it offers the opportunity to stay in an igloo-style dome with chances of viewing the Northern Lights from your bed!
Looking to stay a little longer? Up Norway offers two seven-day travel packages, the first being The Lofoten Islands and Manshausen Sea Cabins: Nature & Culture in Harmony.
The Manhausen sea cabins are a beautiful option for visitors, sitting right on the water with floor-to-ceiling windows perfect for viewing the Arctic sunrise. Travelers who choose this package will be joined by a professional photographer, and given the chance to hike, surf, make handicrafts, kayak and more.
If you want to really immerse yourself in Norway, the Frozen Fairytale package immerses you into the story of Anna and Elsa from Disney’s musical smash hit. Visitors can find themselves skiing, visiting igloo hotels and dog sledding, topped off with a snowshoe excursion where an expert Northern Lights hunter will share science and folklore about the iconic cosmic display.
The highlight of each experience is of course Northern Lights, but each package offers more than one way to get the most out of the Norwegian tundra. The different packages and full itineraries are now available to explore via upnorway.com.
