Tours in Northern Norway

Northern Norway is a land of natural extremes, from arctic cruises under the midnight sun in summer to snowy adventures under the northern lights in winter. Take a holiday in Norway’s far north, in breathtaking places like Tromsø, Kirkenes and Lofoten, by land or sea with a tour arranged by the travel experts at Nordic Visitor.

Go on a travel adventure in Northern Norway

Northern Norway is about as close to the North Pole as most ordinary travellers get, and as such it offers an abundance of unique arctic experiences. Besides opportunities for photographing the snow-capped mountains and rugged coastline, travelling in Norway’s far north gives you the opportunity to see wildlife like whales and reindeer. As Norway’s northernmost region is situated above the Arctic Circle it also has extreme differences in seasonal daylight, giving visitors the opportunity to experience natural phenomena like the midnight sun or the northern lights.

If the northern lights are on your bucket list, it’s best to visit northern Norway in the peak winter months, from December to March. As the “northern lights belt” (also called “aurora belt”) passes directly through this region, the best places to go for viewing the aurora borealis are the cities of Tromsø and Kirkenes or in the Lofoten Islands. On a winter holiday of 4 -7 days in northern Norway you can experience the thrills of snowy adventures like dog sledding and snowmobiling with a local guide and go in search of the northern lights at night. You could even spend a night in a hotel made of snow and ice!

Another great way to see the northern lights in winter or the midnight sun in summer in Norway is by spending a few nights on a Hurtigruten cruise along the country’s picturesque west coast. This gives you the opportunity to watch the skies from the comfort of the ship, in addition to optional daytime shore excursions in ports of call such as Nordkapp (North Cape).

With 10 - 14 days or more to travel, why not expand your Norway trip to include neighbouring Scandinavian countries? Whether you travel on your own or in the company of a guided small group, Nordic Visitor makes it easy to combine visits to Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland all in one tailor-made itinerary.

Note: If you wish to do some scenic driving, we recommend a road trip from Oslo to the fjords region of western Norway in the summer months. Travelling between May and September also gives you the best conditions for hiking in Norway.

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.

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.

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.
