Enjoy some arctic hospitality in a tranquil resort, located close to the Norwegian-Russian border and just a short 15-20 minute drive from downtown Kirkenes.  This package includes accommodation in an Aurora Villa with its glass top roof, perfect for gazing up into the night sky - hopefully the Aurora Borealis will make an appearance!  Also experience a King Crab Safari and a traditional 3 course dinner at the Gapahuken Restaurant. 

If you are travelling on the Hurtigruten ferry on our Classic Voyage North or Classic Voyage South, why not add this package for an extended stay in Kirkenes?  The Classic Voyage North ends with arrival into Kirkenes on Day 7 at around 09:00hrs, whilst the Classic Voyage South starts from Kirkenes on Day at 12:30. 

During December-March we offer a 2, 3 and 4 Day package Winter Silence by the Russian Border which offers additional winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, dinner at the Borealis camp and snowshoe hike.
