Read about Emma's holiday in Finland & Norway
Your front row seat to nature's greatest show!
Looking through photos on the weekend and reminiscing, I realised it was 8 years ago this week when I went in search of the Northern Lights in Finland and Norway. What an experience, it was certainly a trip like no other. The dog sled ride was definitely a highlight, as was lunching with a local Sami family on their reindeer farm and of course meeting Santa in his little village in the North Pole. A beautiful winter holiday for all.

Our travel partner Hurtigruten have put together some inspiring itineraries, showcasing many of the sights and experiences from my trip. For those who are not familiar with their coastal voyages learn a little more about them HERE.
Winter or Summer this stunning destination will not disappoint and neither will these savings.
Read on further to explore their itineraries and specials.

   Nature is what makes Norway truly spectacular. From rugged mountains to deep fjords, pitch black winters to light summers, and dramatic waterfalls to icy frozen lakes it's a land of incredible contrasts. Lock in your front row seat for less with savings of up to $2000 per suite off select Hurtigruten coastal express voyages when booking before February 28. Call upon up to 34 ports where you'll meet a Sámi family of reindeer herders, artisans, and heralds of Sámi traditions, hear the midnight hymns echo throughout the Arctic Cathedral and savour the magnificent produce scattered along the coast like a treasure hunt.
