Winter in North Norway

Wild, sparsely populated, densely forested Arctic Norway is home to fishing communities, indigenous Sami people and the aurora borealis. In winter, it’s full of life.


Winter activities


The environmentally friendly version of snowmobiling allows you to experience the polar silence like explorers of old. Engholm’s Husky, near Karasjok, offers winter dog-sled tours.

If you’re lucky, you’ll be guided by Sven Engholm, one of dog-sledding’s most famous names. Tours range from an hour to multiday expeditions (engholm. no; 1-day dog-sledding £200).


The remote fishing village of Gjesvær, 13 miles off the Honningsvåg–Nordkapp road, framed by a stark, rocky landscape, is home to fisherman Roald Berg and his trusty boat Aurora. Together they make up Stappan Sjøprodukter and offer winter northern lights tours. Trips include an Arctic meal and five hours chasing the nighttime rainbows with a northern lights photographer (; winter tours by reservation; northern lights trip £150).
