At a glance

This tour combines the very best of the summer delights found in Swedish Lapland, Bergen and the Norwegian fjords for all the family to enjoy. Please note, this price is based on a family of four.

While Swedish Lapland is known the world over for its winter charm and offering of arctic adventure, it also offers some incredible activities and awe-inspiring landscapes during the summer months.

This tour is the perfect adventure for adrenaline junkies, and starting in Swedish Lapland you’ll dive head first into the beautiful green surrounds with a mountain bike excursion in the forests of the Råne River Valley. While the adrenaline is still pumping and you are feeling brave, embark on a white water rafting adventure along the dramatic Kamlunge rapids.

To calm the spirits, you’ll then try your hand at fishing before heading into the forests of Flakaberg to learn all about Sámi life and culture and enjoy a traditional lunch.

Flying over to Norway, you’ll stop in Bergen where you’ll explore the city’s highlights before hiking in the scenic Vikafjell Mountain Plateau. Next up, the fjords await. Getting the adrenaline flowing once more, you’ll board a RIB boat and head out onto the stunning Sognefjord fjord, before taking it slower in Flåm with a bike tour.

Finally you’ll be heading out onto the waters once more for a kayaking experience followed by a cruise from Balestrand back to Bergen, where you’ll finish your adventure in the centrally located neo-baroque Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret.
