From
£1,449
excluding flights
Each of the five days was memorable in its own way. The evening walk from Mefjord Brygge up to the hut for the Northern Lights safari was special as the lights were particularly impressive that evening. Equally driving huskies through the beautiful winterwonderland was also hard to beat. We also loved the boat trip around the fjord, although there are no whales, as the herrings have moved elsewhere.

We loved all the activities. I think the huskies would be voted top by most of the party.

Just being able to go in to the zoo every day we were there and see those animals and birds once more was also special. (more)Liz Garrett
