In Norwegian Lapland, Holly travels by dogsled south from Alta toward the Sami people's most important celebration - the Easter Festival, where she enters the annual reindeer racing competition. She then departs for the Finnmarksvidda Plateau to round up more than 800 reindeer and to glimpse the famous Northern Lights. She heads to the Alps, where she treks through the Italian Dolomites to the Via Ferratae. Holly's next climb takes her to Zermatt in Switzerland, where she scales the awe-inspiring Matterhorn.
