Journey to the frontier town of Kirkenes in northern Norway where you'll spend four days exploring this stunning winter wilderness on the shores of the Barents Sea near the borders of Finland and Russia.

Kirkenes, near the Finnish and Russian borders, is home to the world’s most northerly snow/ice hotel. Now in its tenth season, it is a firm fixture on the adventure travel circuit, with the resident ruminants of Gabba Reindeer Park, and excellent opportunities for Northern Lights spotting. A host of winter activities are on offer, including husky sledding.
