Our Christmas in Norway was not as uneventful as we had hoped for and certainly did not plan, and not in the good way where Santa surprises you with something you didn’t realize you wanted but absolutely have to have now that you’ve got it. It was wrought with missed flights, a stinky airbnb, and a birthday celebration that...

All things considered, during our eight day trip in Norway we actually spent a majority of our time at the Oslo Airport, OSL. Three of those eight days were spent at the Oslo Gardermoen Airport in fact. We had zero success getting on a flight to Tromsø for Christmas, and we had zero success getting on a flight out of...

Flights didn’t look good departing from Oslo to Amsterdam on December 30 but if nothing else we are risk takers. What do a couple too few seats even mean to a standby traveler? Anything can happen. After all, we made it on a flight from Kirkenes to Oslo that morning when the odds were against us, and not just...

During our entire eight day trip to Norway, we only ate at three restaurants for a total of three meals. Everything was either closed, insanely overpriced, or unappealing. That means we lived off of snacks and were starving the majority of the time. We devoured our meals on the Hurtigruten, and Pepe’s Pizza at the airport filled a very...
Kirkenes, Norway, Christmas in Norway, Winter in Norway, Russia, Northern Lights, traveling with kids, family travel, creating family memories,
We found ourselves in Kirkenes after debarking from our two night cruise on the Hurtigruten. Kirkenes is a tiny little town of only 3,000 inhabitants on just over 500 acres, and was upgraded from a village just 20 years ago! The peninsula is sandwiched between the Bøkfjorden fjord, and the Varangerfjord fjord that borders Russia, and the city is...

Across town, in the opposite direction of the graffiti and promiscuous pictures was where we found our home for Christmas. This darling airbnb, with red cupboards in the kitchen and four single beds laying side by side each other in the bedroom, was perfect for our celebrations. Though we longed to be in Tromsø, we were finally in a...

Our family trip to Norway was one of those standby adventures gone wrong, but one we probably should have known better to anticipate. I was stressed for weeks leading up to this vacation. We had three flights to take after disembarking the Disney Wonder cruise ship, and making our way to our Christmas destination in Norway. That meant three...

Of all the truly incredible adventures we participated in during our family Christmas trip to Norway, from our spiritual excursion to witness the Northern Lights in Kirkenes, to the authentically cultural journey through the North Cape on the Hurtigruten, to celebrating a Norwegian Christmas in Oslo, our most magical experience was our husky dog sledding ride through the snow...

Holy crap is Norway expensive. It’s probably the most expensive place we’ve ever been to and not because of the activities we participated in but because everything is so ridiculously overpriced. And when I say ridiculously, I mean this trip legitimately broke us. The currency in Norway is the Norwegian Krone. It’s another one of those crown currencies. The...
Best Treats in Norway
With the exception of our two night Hurtigruten Cruise we spent a huge majority of our time eating items from the local 7-11, or Norwegian equivalent Narvesen, during our two week Christmas trip to Norway. We found all the best treats in Norway, and not because we love "food-like" items that never have an expiration date, but because most...
