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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
