So if you’ve wondered if you should choose to holiday in Norway, read on to find out more.

The landscapes are breathtaking

Norway is arguably one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It has a raw allure that beguiles every traveller who is lucky enough to see it and on our escorted tours to Norway, you'll get plenty of opportunities. The extraordinary scenery sees immeasurable fjords cut deep into the jagged coastline battered by the roaring Atlantic. There are endless ice fields spreading across the serene Arctic tundra, and glaciers that loom magnificent and proud. There are moody forested hills, tumbling river valleys, glistening lakes and epic mountains that provide the backdrop to picture-perfect coastal settlements, as well as architecturally stylish cityscapes.

Feel closer to the awesome presence of nature, wherever you venture and if you’re lucky enough, you may even spot some of Norway’s amazing wildlife from whales to puffins, polar bears and moose. Our Norway cruises traverse through blue-black fjords and venture to the Arctic Circle where the skies shimmer and the land sprawl across limitless stretches.

It’s the land of the midnight sun

Norway is one of very few destinations where the sunset blends into the sunrise and there is no nighttime in between. Eerie but bewitching, Norway is one of the best places to encounter the midnight sun, which is at its strongest near the Arctic Pole - which has continuous sunlight for six months at a time. As you move further south, the midnight sun is less visible, and for those who choose to holiday in Norway during the summer months, they will experience a dappled sunlight in the evenings, before it brightens again the following day.

You can experience adventure

Whether it’s watching humpback whales breaking the surface of the water, riding a sled pulled by huskies or taking a rail journey through Norway’s impressive mountains on the infamous Flåm railway, there is much adventure to be had on a Norway tour. Our Norway Northern Lights tour goes in search of the mystical aurora borealis. Seeing the magical shimmering green and violet hues that undulate in the inky black sky is the stuff of dreams. The optimum time to view them is during November to March, and travelling to the Arctic Circle will increase the chances of seeing this mesmerising spectacle.
