“I am going to be travelling alone after finishing a 2 week tour in Ireland and Scotland. In Norway I am hoping to see as many fjords and northern lights as possible in a week in October. I would also like to see some Viking history as well. I don't necessarily need to see the big cities as much or stay in fancy hotels.”

Summary of the trip planning conversation
Hi Dani, thank you for getting in touch with us! My name is Linda and I can help you out here.
Your best option is to travel north, as it is still early season for Northern lights, and of course we can not guarantee it. I suggest to spend the first part of your week in Tromsø (I will send you a suggestion in a bit) and take the Hurtigruten / Coastal Steamer to Lofoten to experience Lofoth Viking Museum. Here you can also join a Viking feat one of the evenings. Along the cruise, you will experience many fjords and parts of Norways most beautiful stretch..
I will send you the Northern light program now..
Yes! It all looks great. I'm just trying to figure out my dates
Great - looking forward to hear from you!
Hi Dani, congratulations with your booking!
I will now go ahead and start the reservation. You will receive the confirmation numbers etc. It may take some time, so be patient, but feel free to ask any questions meanwhile!
and, welcome to Norway!
Okay! I'm very excited!!
