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

No matter what type of your holiday in Norway you choose, Nordic Visitor’s itineraries are designed to be well-structured yet customised according to your needs and interests. Nordic Visitor can even arrange bespoke holiday packages in Scandinavia that combine stays in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and other Nordic destinations.

What’s more, you’ll have your own dedicated travel consultant to advise you about possible add-ons to your tour and handle all the details for you. We’ll even give you tips on what to pack to stay warm in the Norwegian weather! You’ll also have access to Nordic Visitor’s 24/7 helpline while travelling in Norway, so in case of any any unexpected delays our friendly staff can quickly get your trip back on track.

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

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.

Robert, Albania

Perfect

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

Ron, United States
