This epic journey encapsulates Norway’s Trøndelag region at its scenic best. After exploring the thousand-year-old history of third-city, Trondheim, you’ll take the Polar Express into the Arctic Circle, winding past mighty fjords and snow-clad forests. Included flight hops will then see you to the Lofoten Islands, where you’ll stay in a stilted fishermen’s cabin and explore the archipelago under the Northern Lights.

Day by day itinerary

  • Day 1 » Trondheim

    Fly direct to Trondheim and check in to your central accommodation – a contemporary gem housed in a century-old stone building. Spend the rest of the day exploring this historic city. Founded by the Vikings as a trading post in the 10th century, Trondheim has long been one of Scandinavia's most important cities. Once Norway's capital, its colourful old town and grand Gothic cathedral are joys to explore, and there's a whole host of cosy pubs, cafes and restaurants to welcome visitors in from the cold. You'll even be treated to a complimentary light evening meal at your accommodation.

    Stay: Thon Hotel Nidaros

  • Day 2 » Bodø

    Today, take the ‘Polar Express’, otherwise known as the Nordland Railway, which spends ten hours winding through Norway’s wild mountains offering stunning views of the fjords, forests and lochs along the way to Bodø inside the Arctic Circle.

    Stay: Clarion Collection Hotel Grand Bodo

    Meals: Breakfast

  • Days 3-4 » Lofoten Islands

    Catch a quick flight to Svolvær, the largest settlement on the Lofoten Islands – an otherworldly archipelago whose sharp peaks rise almost vertically from the sea. Here there are myriad chances to have fun in the snow, so spend the next few days enjoying snow safaris and looking out for the Northern Lights. It's all set to a backdrop of peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages seemingly untouched by time.

    Stay: Svinoya Rorbuer, Norway

    Meals: Breakfast

  • Day 5 » Bodo

    Fly back to Bodo for a further night at the Clarion Collection Grand. Perhaps spend the afternoon exploring some of the many islands that surround the town, taking in the views of distant peaks, or searching for white-tailed sea eagle in what is something of a hotspot for these elegant birds of prey. 

    Stay: Clarion Collection Hotel Grand Bodo

    Meals: Breakfast

  • Day 6 » Depart for home

    Transfer to back to the airport this morning in time for your flight home via Oslo.
