Follow in the footsteps of Joanna Lumley (see the video here) and spend the night in a hotel made entirely by ice!


After an evening hunting the northern lights, snuggle up in warm reindeer skins as you listen to the quiet of the ice around you in you hotel bed made of ice. This 5 day break is most definitely something different, a once in a lifetime experience.

Day 1: Arrival Day – Exploring the Norwegian Capital

When arriving in Oslo Gardermoen Airport (flights not included) you will be met at the airport and taken to your hotel in Oslo.

Depending on your time of arrival you will have the chance to explore the Norwegian capital at your own leisure. Make sure you don´t miss the Holmenkollen Ski Jump (with amazing views), the newly built opera house, the Viking Ship museum and the Vigeland sculpture park.

Read more about what to see and do in Oslo or get some inspiration from our Oslo video.


In the evening, try out one of Oslo´s many excellent restaurants and experience the nightlife.

Day 2: Arctic Adventures in a Hotel Made of Ice

Have your breakfast at the hotel before the pickup to head back to the airport. The flight to the Arctic city of Alta takes about two hours, and you will quickly notice you have moved significantly further north when you get off the plane. (Bring a warm coat!)


From the airport you will be taken to the award-winning Snorrisniva Igloo ice hotel, where you will sleep like Joanna Lumley did in her BBC northern lights documentary – on a bed made of ice! Watch the video.

Read more about the Snorrisniva Igloo ice hotel at their website.


The Snorrisniva centre´s location in the Northern Norwegian wilderness makes it a particularly good spot for northern lights watching. Join a northern lights safari (not included) or just head outside in the evening, and you might see this amazing phenomenon. Read our top 10 tips for seeing the northern lights.

Day 3: Scenic Winter Landscapes

Spend the morning at your own leisure at the Snorrisniva centre. There are loads of activities on offer from snowmobiles and huskies, to Sami culture or just a drink in the ice bar (activities not included).


In the afternoon a bus will take you from Alta to Honningsvaag along a scenic winter wonderland of frozen lakes and mountains.


You will be staying in the Rica Hotel in Honningsvaag for two nights, and have the evening at your own leisure.


Remember to watch out for the northern lights in the evening!

Day 4: 71 degrees North - Reaching the North Cape

A late morning pickup for the other highpoint of this package tour.

Reaching 71 degrees north – or the North Cape – deserves celebration. Enjoy a glass of complimentary champagne and receive your North Cape certificate at the Cape centre.


On return to Honningsvaag in the afternoon you will have the chance to explore this fishing city further.


Keep your eyes on the night sky in case of northern lights!

Day 5: Heading Back South

You fly back to Oslo from Honningsvaag, via Tromso.

Arrival in Oslo is in the afternoon, so you may need an extra night in Oslo if you cannot get a connecting flight there. (Flights to and from Oslo are not included in the price)

You can compare both flights and hotel prices using the search boxes on the left.
