Alta, Finnmark, Norway An overnight stay in Alta provides the perfect chance to spot the incredible Northern Lights – the stuff dreams are made of. But the list of inspirational experiences to tick off while you’re here goes on. Explore the unique Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel; unearth ancient Sami culture at the Alta Museum; learn of the town’s connection to WWII at the Tirpitz Museum; or opt for the full adventure and go snowmobiling or husky sledding through the flawless Arctic landscapes. «RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE Experience the opportunity of a lifetime on an exhilarating dog-sledding journey through enchanting, snow-covered landscapes. Narvik, Norway Narvik lies over 400km north of the Arctic Circle, among mountain peaks, pretty islands and the spectacular Ofotfjord. Unearth the town’s wartime history at the Nordland Red Cross War Memorial Museum; or tour to the Polar Park and meet wolves, lynx, Arctic Foxes, reindeer and more. Åndalsnes, Romsdalsfjord, Norway Don’t be fooled by Åndalsnes’ smaller stature; an enchanting journey of discovery awaits you. Step aboard the awe-inspiring Rauma Railway, which weaves past plummeting waterfalls and the Trollveggen (Troll Wall), the tallest vertical rock face in Europe. The scenery’s connection to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ensures you are in for a magical adventure. Bergen, Norway The beautiful UNESCO-listed Bryggen Wharf, with its colourful timbered houses and cobbled walkways, is the historic and cultural centrepiece of Hanseatic Bergen, though the famous fish market, Troldhaugen Museum and fascinating art galleries are worth exploring too. Head to the top of Mount Fløyen via the funicular railway for an unrivalled perspective of the city.
