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