8F: Snowmobile trip in the polar night


Join an unforgettable snowmobile trip to one of Europe’s most extreme and exciting natural areas. During this excursion you will travel from Mehamn, the world’s northernmost mainland town, located on the often wild and stormy Finnmark coast, over the mountains to the old trading post and fishing village of Kjøllefjord. Along the way, the guides will tell you about the Sámi people, the geographic and climatic conditions, what life is like on the Finnmark coast, and how the local population utilise nature in both the summer and winter months. Some of Norway’s best instructors will ensure that proper training is given before you hop onto your own snowmobile for this once in a lifetime trip through fascinating scenery. Experience the snow-clad valleys, the fresh winter air and perhaps the mesmerising Northern Lights in the clear, starry sky. In Kjøllefjord you rejoin the Hurtigruten ship to continue our voyage.
