Visit Norway's top tourist attractions

As a long, mountainous country with deep fjords and thousands of miles of coastline, with many differences in geography and climate from north to south, there are countless attractions in Norway to visit!

Starting your journey from Oslo, the capital city and home to the country’s largest airport, you can experience many of Norway’s top sights by rental car, train or cruise on a custom tour from Nordic Visitor.

Check out our suggestions below for the best ways to explore Norway’s most popular attractions:

Travel to Bergen & The Norwegian Fjords

The fjords are easily in the top 10 tourist attractions of Norway, and as the city of Bergen is nicknamed “The Gateway to the Fjords” it’s no surprise that trips from Oslo to Bergen are extremely popular in all seasons. Nordic Visitor offers a few different options to do this journey and take in some fjord scenery on the way:

  • By car: If you want to do some hiking at landmarks like Pulpit Rock in the Stavanger area, then a summer self-drive holiday in western Norway is your best option. Doing a road trip between May and September also gives you the chance to experience driving on incredible roadways like the Trollstigen mountain pass. It’s possible to drive from Oslo to the top attractions around Bergen in about a week, though we highly recommend an itinerary of 10 - 14 days to slow down the pace and see more sights.
  • By train: Train holidays, such as the Norway in a Nutshell trip from Oslo to Bergen, are available year-round and take around 7 days or less for a round-trip journey. Nordic Visitor’s railway tours are customisable, so you can spend extra nights in hub cities like Bergen and Trondheim or other towns en route, like the small fjord village of Flåm.

Don’t want to navigate the fjords on your own? Nordic Visitor’s summertime Guided Small Group Tours in Norway are another great option!

Sail along Norway's West Coast from Bergen

A Hurtigruten coastal cruise between Bergen and Kirkenes in Norway’s arctic north is a fantastic way to see many of Norway’s top attractions and cities along the west coast, including North Cape and the town of Svolvær in the Lofoten Islands.

This famously scenic voyage is available year-round, and as a flexible hop-on, hop-off style of cruise with 34 ports of call it’s a great addition to travelling by train. Many of Nordic Visitor’s Fjord Tours combine trips by train and cruise in tours ranging from 7 to 14 days.

See the Northern Lights up North in winter

Places in Norway’s northernmost region, like Tromso, Kirkenes or the Lofoten Islands, are where you need to go to see the northern lights and enjoy winter adventures like dog sledding, snowmobiling and more.

December to March are the best months for both snow and northern lights conditions, so plan to spend about 4 - 7 days on a winter break that includes overnight stays in northern Norway. From Oslo it’s only a 2-hour flight to smaller hubs up north.

Christian, Canada

Complete Norway, February 2020

We had a great experience

Everything was fine, accomodations were perfect, comfortable and very good breakfast. Our experience with Nordic Visitor was very helpful and the followups were very efficient.

Tracy, United States

Highlights of Norway, May 2019

Fantastic tour! My second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours

I enjoyed the small group size and getting to know my tour mates. I most enjoyed the Fjord part of the tour.  Flam was amazing and the accomodations were fantastic! This was my second guided tour with Nordic Visitor, and I will look to do other tours with Nordic Visitor. I have recommended to friends and 2 have used for self-drive tours in Iceland. I also wrote a positive trip advisor review on my Iceland tour and it was read by 1,500 people! I will give another positive write-up on this trip. I love to look at your website (which is one of the best travel websites I've seen) and dream about where I may want to go next.

Brenda, South Africa

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, January 2020

Wonderful experience!

It's intimidating visiting a foreign country where you don't speak the language. Our fears were put to rest the moment we started our tour, the whole experience was just wonderful. Everything was wonderful, our tour was carefully planned and made the maximum use of our time.

Larry, Canada

Highlights of Norway, July 2019

I enjoyed the whole tour!

The scenery was beautiful and the accommodations and food were excellent. Our tour leader and driver were great to travel with and I enjoyed the whole tour.

Debbie, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® & Northern Lights, March 2020

Excellent tour!

An excellent tour. Excellent locations, nice quality. Self guided, directions were very clear and concise. We especially enjoyed the day spent at Camp Tamok, where we partook in reindeer and dog sledding.

Lesley, Australia

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, October 2019

Michelle, Australia

Norway in a Nutshell® Classic - Winter, October 2019
