VJV travellers have many times asked to stay in an ‘Ice Hotel’, so we are delighted to present this opportunity at the most northern ‘Ice Hotel’ within the Arctic Circle near Alta, the largest town in Finnmark. The Igloo Hotel is re-built each year for the past 15 years (about one month of work for the hotelier!). It opens in January, melting away by springtime. This coincides with the best time of year to view the Northern Lights during a winter that has been classified as one of the best for viewing opportunities in the Northern Lights cycle. Norway offers dramatic mountain scenery and in winter, a multitude of activities; winter walking and activities with the chance to see the Northern Lights, Sami culture and reindeer. The Alta museum, which previously won ‘Museum of the Year’ is located a taxi or bus ride away in nearby Hjemmeluft, featuring exhibits relating to the Alta River from the Stone Age Komsa culture through to modern hydroelectric projects.
*Some transfers and Northern Lights excursion on Day 1 may be a larger group size.
