NORWAY - FINLAND
6 DAYS IN FINLAND
Alta, Honningsvåg, Nordkapp - Inari and Rovaniemi
The best place to start this tour is from Alta, Norway (city in north Norway with good flight connections from around the world). On the arrival day we will pick you up from the airport and then start to drive to our Honningsvåg about 210km (about 4 hours) where we will be staying the next two nights.
On the second day in Honningsvåg we will go to see a Bird safari to the biggest bird nesting areas in Norway. To the safari we will go by a ferry and you will be able to see thousands of puffins, cormorants, gannets, eiders, guillemots, razorbills and a lot of sea eagles. During the trip we will be also able to see many seals that stay on the reefs and if we are lucky, we can also see a whale during the safari. After the bird safari we will go back to the accommodation.
In the evening, we will make trip to Nordkapp where you will be able to see best the Midnight Sun (4 hours trip). Nordkapp is the northernmost point accessible by a vehicle in the world. In Nordkapp you will be standing in 300 meters cliff edge and see the midnight sun which means that the sun is trying to go down, but it will still stay above the trees and mountains the whole midnight and then starts to rise again. Additionally, in Nordkapp you will see a film which takes you on a journey through the four seasons of Nordkapp and tells you more about the midnight. After the midnight we will go back to Honningsvåg to sleep.
Day Three and Four
After the breakfast we will start driving (6 hours) to our Kankiniemi resort in Inari for the next two nights. This unique resort is located by a Finland's largest lake called Inarijärvi. In this resort you will get a chance to try life without electricity in our 100 years old lovely villa and enjoy of doing everything by yourselves while enjoying a family time in the Finnish nature.
Our guides are there to make everything for you but you can also decide to help with every activity what the villa and accommodating needs, example warm up the house, carry drinkable water from the forest, try to catch the fishes for dinner, make a bonfire to be able to make the food on it, carry water to sauna from the lake and heat up the sauna with the woods from the forest. While enjoying all the things that you can do together with your family, we will also enjoy our time by playing yard games, eating good food and enjoy from the sauna with swims in the lake.
