3-4 Days Northern lights tour in Norway


We would like a travel agent recommendation who can arrange for us a Aurora - northern light tour in norway. We would like to include a night or two stay in Kirkennes snow hotel.

Is this something we can do by ourself, or is it better to go with a tour operator?

I am not much of a driver in the snow.

A travel agent you would need to find back home, but it should be relatively easy to piece together something on your own if you have time to do your research.

Note the opening times for snow hotels, they are seasonal. You do not say anything about when you plan to travel. 3-4 days might be on the short side for your plans.

I can highly recommend a Minneapolis-based tour operator for you, who are experts on Scandinavia, please check https://www.bortonoverseas.com

https://www.nordicvisitor.com is a also good Scandinavia experts for the American marked, based on Iceland!

Or, you can of course do all by your self, with help from the experts out here..;)

A popular round trip is this one;

Day 1: Arrive Oslo and continue north to Tromsø.

Day 2: Take http://hurtigruten.com (leaving Tromsø at 18:30) to Kirkenes

Day 3: Onboard, passing North Cape...

Day 4: Arrive Kirkenes in the morning.

Join King Crab safari, https:/…king-crab-safari and take a night in the Snow hotel (minus 4), https://www.snowhotelkirkenes.com/snowhotel or in a warm lovely Gamme cabin, https://www.snowhotelkirkenes.com/cabins

Day 5: Fly out from Kirkenes via Oslo and out...
