Take kids to see the Northern Lights with Off the Map Travel. // © 2016 Chad Blakely
Off the Map Travel recently unveiled new family-friendly winter tours across Scandinavia. Whether in Norway, Sweden or Finland, guests can hunt for the Northern Lights while participating in plenty of excursions along the way. During the Aurora Bubble Sled tour, families can ride through the tundra inside a transparent, heated “bubble” that is towed behind a snowmobile. An option for guests interested in local culture is the Sami Arctic Experience, during which clients learn about the indigenous population of the north. The tour also includes the chance to herd reindeer, walk in traditional Sami shoes and stay in a traditional Sami lavvu teepee.
Multiple departures for these tours, along with other family itineraries, are available throughout the rest of 2016 and in 2017.
