Untamed. Understated. Magnificent. Norway is the definitive adventure playground.
Norway offers a flawless formula: breathtaking landscapes, cosmopolitan cities, and a people famous for their healthy hedonism. Savvy Norwegians are passionate about being in nature – so make like a local and let the call of the wild lead you deep into Norway’s awe-inspiring wilderness.
Watch the northern lights reflect in the crystalline Geirangerfjord system from a private yacht; sea-kayak up close to some of the world’s most stunning coastlines; spend a relaxing day trying your luck with the world-class fishing; maximise the summer sun, hiking the endless trails of Jotunheimen National Park with a local guide; be awe-struck as your private boat approaches the towering Lofoten Islands; photograph the bold-coloured houses of vibrant Bergen; dine on foraged New Nordic Cuisine; relax in the waterfront city of Ålesund, before exploring the western Fjords; head north to the untouched Arctic wilderness of Svalbard, where walrus, polar bear, and reindeer roam free; brave a close encounter with an Orca while snorkelling off Narvik; experience the thrill of dog sledding in the alpine backcountry.
Where to Stay
Luxury lodges; converted fishing huts; famous writer’s haunts; ice hotels – Norway’s lodgings are as diverse as her landscape.
When to Go
May can be cool but you’ll be rewarded with thundering waterfalls, blossoms, and fewer crowds. Or pick September for mesmerising autumn colours.
