Norway is the longest country in Europe, measuring almost 1,800 miles from top to toe (excluding Svalbard). Its beautiful scenery, friendly people, remote islands and vibrant cities offer much to first time and returning visitors.
Norway's beauty extends from its dramatic fjords in the west, to the fertile landscape of the east, up to enchanting northern Norway with the Lofoten Islands and their proud fishing heritage, down to the south, popular with sailors. You'll discover neat little villages, open countryside vibrant with heather, summer grass and cloudberries, steep sided mountains & gushing waterfalls. Norway is as enthralling in the summer midnight sun as it is in winter when occasionally the Northern Lights dance across the sky.
Norway's stunningly dramatic scenery and legendary hospitality are unquestionably real, as you'll confirm when you have explored a country, still waiting to be rediscovered. The Norwegian national anthem is a song of praise to Norway and its varied scenery and Norwegians sing of how much they love their country - we are not surprised.
Tailor Made Holidays
We have personally selected small hotels in the Lofoten Islands and other locations in Norway's Arctic north as well as a few in the small and friendly capital, Oslo, which is likely to be your gateway into the country. Alternative arrival points include Bergen and Trondheim where we can offer accommodation prior to internal flights or rail tickets to your ultimate destination. Many of the places we offer as part of a tailor made holiday or fly-drive are still relatively undeveloped providing fabulous 'off the beaten track' adventures. If, however, you only have a few days at your disposal, Norway is close enough from the UK for a short break & Oslo is ideal for a city break.
Norway's geography means that sailing and sea-faring is woven into its history, starting with the original explorers - the Vikings. Today you can take to the seas or fjords in style aboard a Hurtigruten cruise - the laid-back way to take in all that fantastic scenery.
We look forward to being of service.
