A Winter Journey of a Lifetime

Journey to Northern Norway and be welcomed by the Arctic winter. This 7-day itinerary brings travelers along the coast of Northern Norway from the striking Lyngen Alps to the secluded Jøkelfjord and then inland, towards Alta.

The journey combines accommodations at the renowned Lyngen Lodge, as well as glamping in Arctic Domes beside a stunning fjord, before ending with a night in an igloo hotel! These bucket list accommodations combine with bucket list experiences such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing and northern lights, to create a winter journey of a lifetime!

Where You'll Stay

Lyngen Lodge

Lyngen Lodge is one of Norway’s most unique and exclusive lodgings. Traditionally constructed from a Norwegian "lafting" pine timber frame in close partnership with the environment, geothermic heating provides the warmth while a thick grass roof provides insulation for the lodge. 

Isbreen The Glacier

You will spend 2 nights at Isbreen The Glacier. Located in Jøkelfjord – a small village with only 70 persons, guarantees an intimate local experience. The property consists of 3 comfortable Arctic dome tents, set upon pillars to minimize their imprint on nature. 

Sorrisniva

Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel is located in idyllic surroundings on the banks of the Alta River, approximately 20 kilometers from the town of Alta.
