Norway, recently voted the best country in the world for the more mature, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful nations on earth. It offers a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience and an opportunity to wonder at the Northern Lights, Mother Nature's very own light show.
From its simply breathtaking scenery and natural parks to the more accessible and unique cities of Tromso, Trondheim and Stavanger, Norway rightly has everything for the traveller. Explore the buzzing capital Oslo with its world class museums and sights. Continue north to uncover this nation's Viking past in their former stronghold Bergen, also known as the Gateway to the Fjords. Go further with the beauty of the Lofoten Islands and the remoteness of Malangen and Senja.
Cruise the deep, clear waters of the majestic fjords or enjoy a self-drive holiday winding through spectacular mountain passes, featuring some of Europe's most dramatic waterfalls and glaciers. Go back in time visiting medieval churches and old wooden towns or hike cabin-to-cabin through some of the best hiking trails anywhere. You can play golf under the midnight sun, ski down some of the best pistes in Europe or watch the Northern Lights draw their luminous curtains across the clear night skies and end the day sleeping on reindeer skins in a hotel made of ice.
Norway is a proud nation with a strong history and a stunning landscape, all eagerly awaiting the chance to leave an everlasting imprint on your soul.
In the winter, the spectacular landscape of Norway is mostly covered under a blanket of ice and snow. This is a special time for those who enjoy winter sports like downhill and cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, dog sledding, ice skating and sledging. Resorts such as Geilo, Trysil and Lillehammer offer a wide range of activities for all ages. If you simply want to enjoy a frosty winter holiday, horse reindeer sleigh rides, crackling fires and snowy landscapes, then try some of our recommended boutique mountain hotels and spas.
