Get an early start on the day with pickup at your hotel in Finland (selected hotels only, see Booking Details for more information). Board a climate-controlled coach for the 174-mile (280-km) trip to the town of Kirkenes, crossing the Norwegian border along the way.
Upon arrival in Norway, your crabbing adventure begins: suit up in the provided thermal overalls, socks, boots, and balaclava, then ride a snowmobile sledge to a snowy fjord by a picturesque farmhouse.
You’ll help saw a hole in the ice then bring up the traps, and when the crab has been gathered you’ll try the freshest king crab of your life. Following the meal of king crab, begin the return trip to Finland by snowmobile sledge and coach.
This area is known for spectacular northern lights displays, and if the weather is good, the driver will stop on the route from Kirkenes to Saariselkä to watch the show. The day concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
