Both Norway and Sweden can be epitomised by their rich history, hearty gastronomy, stylish and sophisticated cultural life and character-filled cities but, truth be told, the highlight of these countries is their exquisite natural beauty. Virgin forests rest untouched, rugged cliffs and impossibly picturesque fjords dramatically line a coast where rocky islands protrude from the sea, and grand glaciers and ice fields create an unrivalled arctic wonderland. Mankind has always revered the wonders of nature, and the spectacular mystical display of the Aurora Borealis has captured imaginations for eternity. Join Scott for a journey full of chances to experience the Northern Lights, and explore two of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world, at a time of the year when the wonders of a winter landscape are at their most phenomenal.
Enjoy private guided tours of the major cities, visits to intriguing museums and authentic old towns, a traditional husky safari, Sami culture and reindeer feeding, and unforgettable scenic travel by train, boat and coach. Board the Hurtigruten for a cruise along the Norwegian coast and traverse some of Norway’s most spectacular landscapes on the Ofoten Railway. Pair this with comfortable 4-star hotels, delicious food and expert local guides, and you have a unique and unforgettable take on a much-loved arctic adventure.
