Cities Visited

Honningsvag , Kirkenes , Oslo , Tromso

  1. Day 1
    Start Oslo
    God dag! That’s good day in Norwegian and it’s definitely a good day for an Arctic adventure, as we meet our Manager and Contiki crew to say ‘Hei’ here in the Norwegian capital. Oslo is a riverside metropolis back-dropped by mountains and filled with easy-going culture.Accommodation: Comfort Børsparken Oslo (or similar)
  2. Day 2
    Oslo to Tromso
    Bye Oslo! Today we’re taking a train to the airport and soaring over to Tromsø, our gateway to Arctic Circle. We’ll start with an orientation tour of Tromso, and after that you’re free to sample the region’s nightlife. This is the world’s northernmost university town, and they truly do have the nightlife to match. Need to line your stomach while you’re here? This is your chance to sample local treats like grilled stockfish, reindeer sirloin, or even seagull eggs!Accommodation: Comfort Express Tromso (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  3. Day 3
    Even though the sun doesn’t rise, you’ll need to be ready to rise and shine for some Arctic action this morning. This is your chance to immerse yourself in local culture with an optional MAKE TRAVEL MATTER™ Sámi Experience. Visit a Sámi camp, be welcomed into a lavvo-hut (Sámi tent) to warm up with a hot drink, get up close to the herd of reindeer at feeding time, and discover how the indigenous people of the Arctic live, with proceeds from the experience going back into the local community. Or if you want to spend more time oceanside, choose to go whale watching - gliding through the Arctic fjords on a hybrid-electric boat with panoramic windows, for maximum whale viewing and minimum disturbance to marine life - spotting sea eagles and playful seals, and maybe experiencing the thrill of seeing humpback whales lobtail and leap in the icy sea.Accommodation: Comfort Express Tromso (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  4. Day 4
    Tromso to Overnight Cruise
    Wake up to fresh Arctic air and a free morning. For panoramic views of the city, maybe ride the cable car up to Mount Storsteinen or, for the more adventurous, reach the top by climbing the 1200 stone steps of the Sherpa staircase. If you energetic this morning you could even try your hand at snowshoeing or snowmobiling for a true Arctic experience. It'll be hard to contain our excitement as we board the Hurtigruten ship in the late afternoon and set sail for the next couple of days, following the wild coastline towards Skjervøy in search of the beguiling Northern Lights. Dinner is up to you this evening but you’ll be able to choose from the onboard restaurants serving authentic produce, fresh from local communities.Accommodation: Hurtigruten Overnight Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast
  5. Day 5
    Overnight Cruise via Honningsvag
    Ahoy! We hope the ship rocked you soundly to sleep. This morning we sail through the Magerøysund sound and after an early stop in Hammerfest, we arrive in Honningsvåg. From here, you can join an excursion to the spectacular North Cape, the northernmost point of Europe, which is just 2000 km from the geographic North Pole. The ship continues northward along the coast of Lapland, passing by the Finnkjerka rock formation, the old sacrificial site of the Sami people. Don’t forget to look for the lights! While there’s no guarantee of seeing the elusive and mysterious Northern Lights we are definitely in the right place at the right time. The sky needs to be dark and clear of cloud and they will most likely show between 5pm and 2am, so grab yourself a coffee and keep your eyes peeled.Accommodation: Hurtigruten Overnight Cruise
    Meals:   Breakfast
  6. Day 6
    Overnight Cruise to Kirkenes
    The last port on our voyage northward is Kirkenes. Located at 30°E, we’re now further east than Istanbul! The Russian border is close by, and all signs are written in both Norwegian and Russian. Here in Kirkenes, you'll have the unique opportunity to go fishing for King Crab in the North Sea. Afterwards, we'll end our day in the town that brought us the very first snow hotel (made completely of snow and ice).Accommodation: Scandic Kirkenes (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast   Dinner
  7. Day 7
    Kirkenes to Oslo
    By now you should be completely chilled. But pull on your mittens and make the most of our last full day, with time to explore Kirkenes before we head to the airport. In the center of town you’ll find the Russia monument and the Wartime Mothers monument, which were erected after the Second World War. Be sure to let the good times roll on this final night of our trip. Oslo is lively at night, fuelled by the fiery local spirit akevitt. Many Norwegians go out late after a vorspiel (pre-party), so hit the town after 10pm and live it up with the locals.Accommodation: Comfort Børsparken Oslo (or similar)
    Meals:   Breakfast
  8. Day 8
    It’s cold outside but our hearts are full of warm and lasting memories as we say our goodbyes after breakfast. The Norwegians have an expression meaning ‘see you soon’ - ‘Sees!’
    Meals:   Breakfast

Health and Safety Protocols for Contiki Tours

Contiki has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

You can travel with Contiki and be assured that their team has put numerous new measures in place to elevate their hygiene standards and protocols. The well-being of guests and team has always been, and always will be, their primary concern.

In this new, fast changing Covid-19 era, Contiki is doing all they can to adapt to new requirements and expectations. Here are some important new steps and procedures that they have implemented to enhance hygiene protocols, to comply with physical distancing requirements by relevant government authorities and to give you the peace of mind when you are traveling during these new times.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Contiki will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Contiki have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Contiki is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Contiki does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Contiki only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Contiki is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Prepare to spend more than usual on a Contiki tour.

We were lucky that the group of people with were good, but it was a large group tour and did have some of the downfalls of a trip of that nature, like frequent breaks for the bathroom, difficulty when eating out together, and getting things on and off the coach. The trip was still great and a good value for the money.

It was a good value and the experiences included were worth it. The only part that wasn't the best were the accommodations as it was hit and miss. Half of the hotels on the trip were okay, and the other half were really nice.
