Norway is a gorgeous Scandinavian country with sprawling mountain ranges, beautiful glaciers and diverse wildlife. It’s a nature lover’s paradise! Tromso in the north offers spectacular views of the Northern Lights - or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous you can visit the archipelago of Svalbard near the North Pole! Of course, a walking tour of Oslo is essential for getting to know Norwegian culture.
“Scanadinavia was everything I expected and then some. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Scanadinavia. Our tour guide did an amazing job and the itinerary was neither too busy nor too sloppy. Looking forward to join the next trip.”
“First night: Our hardworking guides were Johni & Meda w/Jose an excellent driver. Johni gave us a short talk/ info about NL.His knowledge is impressive. Both guides acted professional, courteous & were very helpful. Johni helped me w/ setting up my camera. Guides cared for our safety & made us comfortable. We were treated w/ cookies & hot chocolates. NL was awesome & spectacular! 2nd night: guides Johni & Marius, driver Nicolai. They all behaved professionally & worked hard to find us the best spot for the NL. Guides took our photos just like the 1st night. Beautiful NL! 3rd night: guides Johni & Hermann, driver Michael. NL appeared but pales in comparison to the 2 previous nights. Overall, guides were excellent, hardworking, knowledgeable, accommodating, helpful & truly went out of their way to make each night memorable. I am taking home beautiful photos & memories to last a lifetime. Thank you!...Elizabeth”
A holiday to Norway should find its way into your bucket list for one single reason - it is one of the most enchanting and beautiful countries. From extraordinary fjords and dramatic glaciers to exotic coastlines and snaky icefields, each known for its unique wildlife, Norway is a world unlike any other. Of course, a trip to Norway would not be complete without viewing the Northern Lights, which always act as a major temptation for travelers visiting Norway.
Norway has four very distinct seasons with weather to match. To avoid disappointment, always research whether your trails or other attractions are open during your visit.
Don’t worry about learning Norwegian before you visit. Most people living in Norway have a great command of the English language.
If there’s one thing you can’t miss during your stay in Norway, it’s their salmon.
Visiting Norway as part of a spa holiday? Be aware of etiquette and always shower before entering the sauna. Some hotels also hire ‘washing women’ to clean you!
Be sure to plan your days in advance, as travelling around the country’s near 150,000 square miles isn’t always easy or fast.
Are you outdoorsy? Norway is the perfect holiday for you. “Allemannsretten (freedom to roam)" is a traditional Norwegian right, which means you can pitch your tent just about anywhere for an overnight stay.
