Fjord Norway has so much more to experience than fjords: fairy-tale scenery, historic towns, glaciers, breath-taking waterfalls and huge mountain ridges accessible only by cable car. Everywhere is connected by roads which are a feat of modern engineering; they look like they defy gravity but provide a remarkably smooth ride.
If you’re travelling with young families and enjoy the good life, Eastern Norway is for you. Oslo offers the cultural highlights of the Opera House and Munch Museum, whilst being small enough to explore on foot. Just a short drive away, the Kistefos Museum features The Twist: one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Follow the Viking Trail to step back in time in a living museum, take a paddle steamer across Lake Mjøsa or enjoy one of the many boat excursions near the Swedish border.
Northern Norway is the land of arctic adventures. Most famous for the Northern Lights, this is the home of Sami culture where you can hear the captivating sound of the traditional yolk chant. Fishing is big here and whale safaris are plentiful. Go island hopping to experience cosy villages, and venture into Tromsø to discover old wooden houses, fascinating war history and rich cultural offerings.
Known as the ‘smiling south’, Southern Norway is a popular holiday destination for Norwegians. This is a great place to enjoy beach life and bucket-list opportunities. Explore the Ice Age potholes at Brufjell, dine under the sea, and experience life in a lighthouse.
