Norway

Winter adventures and northern lights hunt

This exciting 7-day tour gives you a full week of winter adventures in the remote and wild northern Norway. Enjoy the spectacular nature of the wilderness centre Camp Tamok, the scenic destinations of Tromsø and Kirkenes, as well as action-packed arctic activities like dog-sledding. You will also have a chance to stay at the famous Snow Hotel and have many opportunities to view the northern lights!

Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Tromsø & Norterhn Lights Hunt

Upon arrival at Tromsø Airport, meet the driver to take a transfer to the cosy hotel in the city centre. We recommend spending the rest of the day exploring the charming city of the "capital of Northern Norway". There are many restaurants in the city centre for an early dinner to start the holiday with a taste of a true arctic meal. Overnight in Tromsø.

Day 2: Dog Sledding & Aurora Borealis

After breakfast at the hotel, spend the first half of the day at leisure in Tromsø exploring many attractions such as the Polar Museum, Arctic Cathedral and the Fjellheisen cable car. In the late afternoon, you will be taken to the wilderness centre, Camp Tamok. There you will join a thrilling dog sledding tour into the white landscapes, through an uninhabited forest landscape surrounded by majestic mountains. After the tour, you will have another opportunity to look for northern lights while enjoying dinner in a lavvu, a traditional Sami tent, at Camp Tamok, before being transferred back to your hotel. Overnight in Tromsø.

Day 3: Experience Tromsø

After breakfast, explore Tromsø at your leisure today. You can choose one of the optional tours or stroll around the city. Notable city attractions include the Art Museum of Northern Norway and Polaria. For a fantastic bird’s eye view over the city, you can take a ride up the Fjellheisen cable car to Mt. Storsteinen (421 m / 1382 ft.). Another alternative is booking an optional activity such as a reindeer sledding tour. Overnight in Tromsø.

Day 4: Journey to Kirkenes

After breakfast, meet the driver and take a transfer to the airport to take a domestic flight further north to Kirkenes. Kirkenes is located about 400 km (240 miles) above the Arctic Circle in northern Norway. With just over 3,000 inhabitants, including the native Sami people, this is a remote, scenic slice of Norway. Surrounded by fjords, mountains, forests and lakes, this area is a heaven for nature lovers, especially winter sport enthusiasts. On the arrival at Kirkenes meet the driver and take a transfer to the hotel. Time at leisure. Overnight in Kirkenes.

Day 5: The Snow Hotel Experience

After breakfast at the hotel, spend the morning at leisure exploring Kirkenes including the Border Country Museum (Grenselandsmuseet), which tells the story of war and peace along the border, or the Andersgrotta Cave, a vast underground bunker that sheltered the town's residents during WWII. In the afternoon, meet the driver and take a transfer to the one-and-only Snow Hotel. There you will enjoy a drink at the Snow Bar and feast on a 3-course meal by the fireplace at the Høyloftet Restaurant before preparing for an amazing night in your special suite made of snow and ice*! Spend the night at the Snow Hotel. *Please note that we offer the option of choosing to stay in a private cabin instead of in an ice room at the Snow Hotel.

Day 6: The Arctic North & Kirkenes

Spend the morning warming up in the Snow Hotel’s sauna and enjoy a hearty breakfast. Visit the hotel‘s on-site friendly reindeers and meet some happy Huskies before travelling back to Kirkenes. Overnight in Kirkenes.

Day 7: Departure from the North

After breakfast, meet the driver and take a transfer to the airport in Kirkenes.

Reindeer Sledding & Camp Tamok

You’ll start the morning with a transfer from Tromsø to Camp Tamok, where you’ll meet the reindeer herd. For the reindeer sledding, you’ll be provided with warm clothes before taking your seat in the sleigh. You will be driving in pairs with one reindeer pulling each sleigh. All you need to do is make yourself comfortable, sit back and enjoy the magical scenery. You’ll then have time to enjoy the cabins, tents and facilities at the camp. Warm-up over a bonfire in the cosy lavvo (Sami tent), where you will learn more about Sami people, their culture and history, feed the reindeer, and try the lasso-throwing method that Sami people use to catch reindeer when they are rounded up for marking. You’ll then enjoy a hot meal by the open fire of a cosy dining lavvu (Sami tent) before joining the evening dog sledding tour, as per your schedule. Please note this is a full-day program where you join both the snowmobiling tour and, as scheduled, the dog sledding & northern lights tour. Pickup in the morning is at 9:00 and you’ll return to Tromsø around 24:00 (midnight).

Xmas in Georgia and Armenia. We wanted a personalized custom vacation to a rarely visited area of the world and found World of Discoveries tour of Armenia and Georgia fit just perfectly. Very well organized and planned, and guides were awesome. Our tour guides in both countries were packed with knowledge of architecture and cultural history, but above all they were friendly and helpful. Rafik in Armenia even took us to his parent’s home in the centre of Yerevan and we enjoyed home-made meals and talks with the locals. It was a very special evening. Be prepared for some long journeys to reach the most exciting destinations in both countries.

Thanks you Abby and Varvara and all the other staff members of World of Discoveries for making our stay in Russia over 2 and a half weeks easy, comfortable and memorable. Thanks for the great organisation with transfers and accommodation. Thanks also for organising a phone sim card for each one in our group. It made our life much easier to stay in touch with each other and with our family and friends back home. We loved our stay in Russia and will certainly come back soon.

Nomadic Escape Mongolia Tour ...Gobi dunes, yurt experience, camels, Karakorum , wild horse park – Mongolia turned out to be a great place. We did not expect much and only decided to go there as we had a trip to China and it was close. For Americans, Mongolia is visa free and we made really spontaneous decision just a week before arrival to China. Despite that, World of Discoveries team was able to arrange extensive 7 days itinerary around the country and we are so happy we did the tour! Huge thanks to Alex, great customer service.

These guys has made my World Cup dream a reality and also provided a spectecular tour of Kazan, Samara & Sochi along the way! The team who made it happen were fantastic, organised, attentive and even fulfilled requests like having window seats on all 3 of my domestic flights not to mention the smooth transportations to and from airports. If you ever want to visit FIFA World Cup, “World of Dsicoveries” is the best way to go!!!!

The team at World of Discoveries were awesome. Didn’t put a foot wrong at all, the tours great, the people even better. Alex who followed us around everywhere was fantastic and the organisation by Varya was exceptional. Everything was made easy and extremely helpful 24/7, I don’t think they slept the whole time. Thank you, my dad and myself loved it

Impeccable service, incredible Trans Siberian! In fact, the great services provided by your team started from my first correspondence with Julie. She has been very professional with providing details of the itinerary and assuring and re-assuring that the trip will be well-planned, It was because of her assurance that gave us the confidence to take the next step and book our Trans Sibetian holiday. And everything ran like clockwork from Moscow to Vladivostok. The Russian people were extremely friendly throughout. The Trans Siberian was a great experience and fulfilled our dreams. The scenery and ever changing vistas were spectacular. The train facilities were adequate but perhaps a shower facility in 1st Class would have been nice. I will recommend your services in the future!
