Getting to Norway from the UK
Most trips from the UK 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. Luckily for British travellers, there are a number of short, inexpensive non-stop flights to Oslo Airport from the UK:
- London to Oslo: 2h 5m (Norwegian, British Airways, SAS, Ryanair)
- Edinburgh to Oslo: 1h 45m (Norwegian)
- Manchester to Oslo: 1h 55m (SAS, Ryanair)
See the Northern Lights in Arctic Norway
From Oslo it’s just 55 minutes via domestic flight to popular winter destinations like Tromsø, Kirkenes or the Lofoten Islands in Norway’s far north. With a short winter break in northern Norway between December and March, you can experience landscapes covered in snow and the incredible northern lights (aurora borealis) as well as winter sports like snowmobiling, dog sledding and more -- all in under a week. You could even spend a night in a snow hotel!
Visit the Norwegian Fjords by train or car
Another major highlight for travellers booking a Norwegian holiday from the UK are the 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.
By car: Exploring Norway by car from the UK is the way to go if you plan to do some hiking in summer or if you just want to explore at your own pace. Nordic Visitor offers a range of customisable self-drive tours in Norway, available from May to September, that come with marked road maps, information about driving in Norway, our own travel guide showcasing the highlights of each region, and more.
By train: By far the most popular Norwegian train holiday is the Norway in a Nutshell classic tour, which includes a short fjord cruise on the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord and a scenic ride in vintage rail cars on the mountainous Flåm Railway. This tour has year-round departures and can be customised by Nordic Visitor to include additional nights in Bergen as well as side trips to other cities such as Stavanger.

Take a Hurtigruten Coastal cruise
Another great way to experience Norway’s fjord-indented west coast is by travelling on a Hurtigruten cruise. With 34 ports of call between Bergen at the southern end and Kirkenes in the Arctic North, this voyage is a hit with travellers visiting Norway from the UK and makes a great addition to travelling by train from Oslo. Nordic Visitor is a Certified Hurtigruten Agent and offers cruise packages in Norway year-round, so you can even sail under the northern lights in wintertime.
