Experience the arctic in a stunning expedition to Nordkapp. Spend the night in our polar base camp. This unique experience is for everyone. You will be hunting for the northern lights, ice fishing, learning about the arctic and reaching the northernmost of Europe on snow shoes.
We will pick you up by your place of choice, before we travel by vehicle into the wilderness. Then we venture by foot or snowshoes to our Base camp in the middle of a frozen lake. We will be setting up our camp very easily and learning polar techniques as we go along. We go ice fishing in the nearby area, we enjoy an arctic meal by the camp fire before we embark on a northern lights hunt.
We spend the night in our polar camp, in comfortable and warm sleeping bags and tents. In the morning we enjoy our breakfast by the fire. We pack our equipment and prepare for our journey to the top of the world. Then we set out by foot or snow shoes like true polar explorers to Nordkapp.
