During this excursion you will travel from the old trading post and fishing village of Kjollefjord over the mountains to Mehamn. Along the way, the guides will tell you about the Sami people, the geographic and climatic conditions, what life is like on the Finnmark coast, and how the local population utilize nature in both the summer and winter months.

Some of Norway’s best instructors will ensure that proper training is given before you hop onto your own snow mobile for this once in a lifetime trip through fascinating scenery. Experience the snow-clad valleys, the fresh winter air and perhaps the mesmerizing Northern Lights in the clear, starry sky.

Back in Mehamn, the world’s northernmost mainland town, located on the often wild and stormy Finnmark coast, you rejoin the Hurtigruten ship to continue your voyage.
