On this excursion you travel over the mountains from the old trading post and fishing village of Kjøllefjord to Mehamn. Along the way, guides tell you about the Sámi people, the region's geography and climatic conditions, as well as what life is like on the Finnmark coast and how the local people utilize nature during the summer and winter seasons. Some of Norway’s best snowmobile instructors provide training before you hop onto your own vehicle for this once-in-a-lifetime trek through spellbinding, snowbound scenery. Experience snowy valleys, invigorating winter air, and maybe even the mystical northern lights in the dark and starry polar night sky. In spring, the sun returns to produce ubiquitous daylight and milder temperatures. Back in Mehamn, the world’s northernmost mainland town, located on the often wild and stormy Finnmark coast, we rejoin the Hurtigruten ship to continue our voyage.
