Day 3 THE ROYAL CITY OF TRONDHEIM (B, D) Our first call of the day is Trondheim, home to the impressive Nidaros Catherdral, Scandinavia's largest medieval building. This very walkable city is well worth discovering. Trondheim was Norway's first capital. The storehouses along the river built on wooden stilts are a colourful contrast to the pure white snow that covers the city during winter.

Day 4 ARCTIC CIRCLE - LOFOTEN ISLANDS (B, D) Crossing the Arctic Circle is one of the highlights on this journey. Being above this degree of latitude gives you the best chance of experiencing the Northern Lights. The Lofoten Islands are renowned for their small fishing villages surrounded by majestic granite cliffs, rorbuer - traditional fishermen's cabins, and white sandy beaches.

During the visit you will be served a hot meal and enjoy a social time by the open fire in the big lavvu (Sami herdsmen's tent). The excursion includes a 2 km hike through the valley at night-time. If the sky is cloudy or there is no sign of the Northern Lights, your will still have good value for your money. A trip to the wilderness camp is an adventure in itself.
