Make a flight to Lapland, rent a car and drive to the Northcape!
This is magnificent if you like to make a once in a lifetime winter ... more »trip over icy roads in an arctic environment and get Northern Lights as a bonus.
Meet the splendid scenery in Northern Finland and Norway, drive along the Norwegian Fjords and the partly frozen sea. See the Elks partly covered by snow enjoying the winter sun. Sleep overnight near the North Cape in a gas heated fisherman's cabin with kerosine lamps and candles (or find a electrified one...) and return to Ivalo next day (or spend another day in Honningsvag to enjoy this small fisherman's village in winter.
Conditions can be challenging with snow storms or, even on sunny day's, drifting snow, low temperatures and icy roads but if you take your time and use good tyres it's not too difficult driving a 2WD small car . You don't need to be a experienced 4WD driver.
Start your trip with a Finnair flight to Ivalo (with a stopover in Helsinki), pick up your rental car at the Ivalo Airport, take a cabin in the small wintersport town Saariselkä, and drive next morning to the Northcape. less «
