This tour introduces you to Norway’s rich wildlife and incredible scenery. You’ll pay a visit to Kvaloya, which is also known as Whale Island. This mountainous isle has peaks that stretch over 1,000 metres into the sky. Your destination is the island’s Wilderness Centre, a camp that’s home to Tove Sørensen and Tore Albrigtsen, their three children, and over 300 Alaskan huskies. You’ll have time to explore the camp and meet the furry animals, while the family recount expeditions of racing with the dogs in Greenland. Tove Sørensen is, in fact, the only man to have completed the world’s longest dog race with just one animal. Later, after waving goodbye to the family, you’ll drive across to the forest-cloaked island of Troms, where you’ll call in at the Polaria environmental centre. Reminiscent of a cluster of huge ice blocks, the centre showcases the Polar Regions in all their snow-covered glory. You’ll get to peek into the dens of polar bears, and check out the types of fish and seals that call these areas home.
