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.

Scenic Fjords of Norway, April 2018

Excellent service

Second time we've used Nordic Visitor and they will continue to be my first choice for booking tours. Excellent service from travel consultants, value for money and the information provided make it an excellent company. 

Jeanette, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days. 

Janice Persson, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Swapna, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!

I'm so glad I booked the trip with Nordic Visitor. Norway is spectacular in itself, but have such a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful guide made the trip so much easier and enjoyable.

I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia

Your company provides outstanding tours, guides, and Arrangements. If and when we return to Scandinavia, we would only use your company. We never had to worry about anything and knew our experience would be spectacular. I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia. In fact we're looking forward to more tours
