Trips to Norway from South Africa
Looking for the perfect holiday package to Norway from South Africa? Save yourself some stress with the trip planning and have all your local logistics taken care of by the Norwegian travel experts at Nordic Visitor. As one of the leading travel agencies in Scandinavia, we arrange your hotels, your driving route and rental car (if you’re doing a road trip), your tickets for any travel by train or cruise, and any itinerary customisations you desire.
Getting to Norway from South Africa
Most trips to Norway begin in the capital city, Oslo, which is home to many of Norway’s top cultural attractions as well as Norway’s main international airport. There are no direct flights to Oslo Airport from Cape Town or Johannesburg, but Nordic Visitor can easily modify your Norway tour with extra nights in Oslo so you can rest up after your connecting flight from another major city in Europe or the Middle East. The most popular times to travel to Norway from South Africa are during Norway’s summer months, June to August, or the peak northern lights-viewing winter months of December to March.
Visit the Norwegian fjords by train or car
Most travellers booking a Norway tour package tour from South Africa come to see the country’s most famous attraction: the Norwegian fjords. From Oslo it’s easy to travel to the Bergen area and nearby fjords of western Norway by rental car or train in 7 - 14 days.
Nordic Visitor’s train packages in Norway, such as the popular Norway in a Nutshell journeys, have year-round departures and include travel on famously scenic railroads like the mountainous Flåm Railway. If you’re up for a road trip, Nordic Visitor also offers a range of flexible self-drive tours in Norway from May to September that come with helpful extras, like a road map marked with your driving route and information about optional highlights in each area.
Don’t want to travel on your own? A Guided Small Group Tour of Norway is a great way to see the fjords and other top sights with a local tour leader.
Take a Hurtigruten coastal cruise
Another option for enjoying Norway’s famous natural beauty is by travelling along the fjord-indented western coastline on a Hurtigruten cruise. With 34 ports of call between Bergen at the southern end and Kirkenes in the Arctic North, this voyage is popular with many travellers visiting Norway from South Africa. Cruise packages in Norway are available year-round from Nordic Visitor, and many of them include travel by train as well.
See the northern lights in Arctic Norway
From Oslo it’s just 55 minutes by domestic flight to popular winter destinations like Tromsø, Kirkenes or the Lofoten Islands in Norway’s far north. With a Nordic Visitor northern lights tour in northern Norway between December and March, you can experience the incredible aurora borealis phenomenon as well as snowy adventures like snowmobiling, dog sledding and more in under a week. You could even spend a night in a snow hotel!
Stress-free travel from South Africa with Norway experts
