WF added a bunch of new routes, most notably LKN-OSL and LKN-TOS. The latter means you gain an entire day on a combined Svalbard-Lofoten trip.The two other Lofoten airports got direct OSL flight as well, and one got a TOS too.

Pretty good news for Lofoten.
BOO!

Hi,

I am planning an LYR trip in mid-March for a Monday-Wednesday run. If I was to choose only between dog mushing and snowmobile riding for a full day trip, which would you recommend? Is it possible to do both (e.g. snowmobile all day on Tuesday and dog mushing on Wednesday morning) and still make a 2pm flight out of LYR?

Any tour operator(s) you recommend or are they all essentially the same up there?

Thanks!

That's exactly the itinerary I did with @whYME @Something Fishy and company.
We used Better Moments for all day snowmobiling and then did Svalbard Husky dogsledding the next morning before going to the airport.

Exhausting, but exhilarating!

Oslo is a city, and Norway’s main value propositions are either rural picturesque villages or rural out-in-nature destinations. Otherwise, Oslo is really expensive and won’t be any more of a novelty vs Helsinki, Stockholm or Copenhagen for an American or Israeli.

If you’re going to be passing through Oslo anyway, there are a few islands in the fjords near Oslo that feel remote and are really beautiful, especially around summertime.

CoronaVirus has hit Norway pretty hard, so I’d obviously recommend staying away until that clears up.
