Small Group Adventures by Land

Trip Highlights

  • Immerse yourself in Sami culture and get to know Europe’s last remaining indigenous civilization. We’ll visit a reindeer farm in Lapland and sit down with a Sami family for an exclusive people-to-people experience as we learn about their 9,000-year-old traditions and have a conversation about Controversial Topics that threaten their way of life today, including increasing industrialization and youth emigration.
  • Discover Finland and Norway on an exclusive O.A.T. itinerary—while most travel companies only cruise the Norwegian coast, O.A.T. will take you off the beaten path to explore this region by land, taking you to lesser-visited destinations that most Americans miss, including Inari, Svolvaer, and Flam.
  • Explore Scandinavia’s legendary scenery, from the unspoiled Lapland wilderness of Inari, to the snowcapped peaks and cascading waterfalls of Flam, and the vivid blue fjords of Svolvaer. You’ll see some of the finest sights that nature has to offer, illuminated by the glow of the Midnight Sun.
  • Meet an equine therapist in the Lofoten archipelago. We’ll visit a local woman at her farm and learn how she came to specialize in this unique form of psychology, and see firsthand how she employs horses and other farm animals to assess and treat her patients’ substance abuse disorders.
