Ground transport

Norway is a scattered populated country. You will find people living inside narrow fjords, inbetween small islands or high up on a mountain ledge. As a result of this, the road infrastructure makes it possible for us to visit every lttle corner of this country. Since we are doing the long distances at sea with Hurtigruten,  the drives will only last for 1-2 hour or less. On our way along the coast you will have the opportunity to experience the countrylife of northern Norway with scattered housing framed by scenic nature of mountains and the open sea.

For ground transport and airport transfers we will mainly use WV Caravelle or Opel Vivaro 8-9 seats. This way we are compatibel with Hurtigruten. Although the cars are spacey we must ask you to limit your amount of luggage to one large bag, boots and a pair of skiis.

The group will consist of 6 guests, one mountain guide and one driver/organiser.
