10/10 Exceptional

We absolutely had the most amazing time at sorrisniva last week, even with a couple hiccups. We reserved the hot tub, but our time was cut short due to someone else reserving it, but it really wasn’t a big deal to us and the hotel staff still discounted the price for the hot tub. We ate the most amazing dinner we had in our entire trip to Norway, the food was absolutely delicious! We then had a northern lights tour scheduled, the weather wasn’t that great the week we went and it was rainy and cloudy and unfortunately we didn’t see any northern lights that night but the guide was awesome. On our way back the road was so icy downhill that we slid off. My boyfriend and another man from the tour hopped out and pushed the van out of the deep snow. We were back on the road! But 5 minutes later we were sliding down the hill and went right back into the snow. We all hopped out and walked down the hill (I slipped a few times) and the owner from sorrisniva came and picked us up. However there wasn’t enough room for all of us so my boyfriend stayed behind to walk with the guide. Even though things didn’t go as planned, this made our adventure even more memorable. The staff was amazing and made sure we all got back safely. We also did the snowmobile tour in the morning before we left and this was my favorite part of our entire Norway experience. We drove up to the top of a mountain and it was untouched as far as I could see. We flipped our sled but it was still so amazing!!! Thank you!
