The excursion starts with a bus trip from Mehamn, the world’s northernmost mainland town, up and over the mountains to the old trading post and fishing village of Kjøllefjord. Along the way, your guides tell you about the indigenous Sámi people, the area´s geographic and climatic conditions, what life is like in this part of Norway, and how the locals effectively utilise nature. Some of Norway’s best snowmobile instructors are on hand to ensure you receive proper training before departing.
Then off we go to experience snowy valleys, invigorating winter air and perhaps the mesmerizing Northern Lights in the clear, starry sky. During spring, the sun returns, resulting in a different, yet equally exhilarating experience due to many more hours of daylight and a milder climate. We conclude our expedition in Kjøllefjord where you rejoin the Hurtigruten ship.
