Our trip to Norway was very nice. We had several surprises along the way, from the initial
planning (pre-covid) to the actual trip. At the end of the trip, we were dumbfounded to be
affected by the SAS Airline strike, which resulted in our being stranded in Norway.
I really compliment our Kimkim consultant, Linda, for doing her best to help us. She never

Our trip to Norway was very nice. We had several surprises along the way, from the initial

I really compliment our Kimkim consultant, Linda, for doing her best to help us. She never
failed to respond to our emails and also helped to research options for us to get out of
Norway. It was very comforting knowing she was there and paying attention to our dilemma..
Kimkim did a very thorough job of planning our trip in meticulous detail, trying hard to
do exactly what we asked. Even with all the many, many changes, cancelations, rebookings
and delays, I must give them kudos. I wouldn't hesitate to use Kimkim again for this type
of trip.

Hotel Review

Snowhotel Kirkenes

Even though we visited the Snow Hotel in the summer, I consider this to be something every traveler to Norway should experience. The main hotel is constructed entirely of ice, from the floors and walls, to the actual beds, furnishings and decorations. The word "amazing" falls short of describing this lovely facade. We stayed in a Gamma cabin on the premises which was also just beautiful. Constructed of various types of light color wood, the worksmanship was outstanding. ultra modern bathroom, and a huge picture window in the main room, which allowed us to sit and enjoy the views of the ice hotel, the 160 sled dogs on the premises and the reindeer, which you can feed! The restaurant served really delicious food and in my opinion, the chefs were masterful and the food was outstanding. The entire experience far exceeded my expectations. If I could award it six stars, I would

Hi Pat, thank you so much for your review. You had a nice experience traveling from Oslo to Bergen via Sognefjord and then up the coast with Hurtigruten and really got to see a lot of our country. Unfortunately it did not end well with the SAS flight strike and having to spend extra time in Kirkenes and alternative route back home! I hope, looking back at the trip - it is the good memories of the journey itself you will remember! After long time planning due to covid! Take care both.
