I worked with our travel planner to coordinate a "bucket list" dog sledding and ice hotel adventure for my wife and I. Everyone at this tour company was very responsive and supportive along the way. The travel company uses an app that stores all of your travel documents, itinerary, "flight hub", interactive maps, and weather for all of your destinations. There is even a "Social" tab as part of the daily itinerary where you write a daily journal and upload memorable pictures. The best part is that you have immediate access to all of your information, updated regularly, eliminating the need to print itineraries, etc.
We did experience a travel delay due to weather. Our initial flights were cancelled, but while we were in line waiting to reschedule our flights, our flights were automatically rescheduled and the new flight information was updated in the app.
Even though the flight delay caused some anxiety, our travel planners did a great job working with us to make this a very memorable trip. I would highly recommend using this travel company!
Our three day dog sledding adventure was amazing. Having the opportunity to manage and care for your own team of dogs was a special experience. The daily sledding trips were fun and very peaceful - only hearing the sound of your sled being pulled through the snow. We were able to see the northern lights on three occasions. Our guides took great care of us and provided us with information that has given me an appreciation for dog sledding.
We also stayed at a hotel near Alta. This year was the 20th anniversary and the theme was "The Best of The Best". The themed rooms were amazing along with all of the ice and snow carvings. The main lodge was beautiful and the dinner was the best I have ever had, featuring all local specialties.
These are two places I would highly recommend.
Besides our initial travel delay, I would not change a thing. The trip covered all of the things we wanted to see and do while we were in Norway. Our travel planner put together a great itinerary - especially the places and locations he recommended for our stay.
This was a great trip!
