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 an 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 Havila or 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.

Norway in a Nutshell® Express - Winter, March 2023

Wonderful experience

Our experience in Norway was wonderful. Our hotels were centrally located, clean and offered great breakfasts to start each day. Our transportation connections couldn't have gone any smoother and the scenery from the train into Flåm and boat through the fiords was spectacular! All three of us felt this was an amazing experience.

We had an amazing time in Norway!

We had an amazing time in Norway! The people could not have been friendlier, the vistas were breathtaking, and our Nordic Visitor helper, Irja, went above and beyond to help us plan our stay and even changed some reservations for us at the last minute when I realised that I had made a mistake. We would absolutely come back to Norway with Nordic Visitor again.

Josephine, United Kingdom
Northern Lights Norway Classic, February 2023

The trip was perfect

I took my mum to Norway for her 60th birthday in the hopes of seeing the northern lights. The trip planned for us by Nordic Visitor was perfect. We were glad of the days we got to spend exploring Tromsø and the excursions that were included allowed us to make some truly amazing memories. The snowmobile tour was the highlight of the trip, truly thrilling and topped off by seeing the lights as we arrived back to the camp. All the people who led our excursions were friendly and really knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend the Nordic Visitor service as a way to pack a lot of unforgettable experiences into a short time.

Great job

Nordic Visitor did a great job with set up for accommodation and travel within the country. Tour guides were friendly, helpful and informative. I liked the way it was set up to visit popular destinations/excursions but also allowed time to explore on your own.

Elena, France
Best of Northern Norway Classic - 71° North Cape, January 2023

One of the best experiences we have had!

Absolutely outstanding. The tour and excursion organisation was perfect, seamlessly executed. The agent, Sindre, very professional in recommending and adapting the tour to our needs. One of the best family travel experiences we have had!

Joyce, United Arab Emirates

A true winter wonderland!

This was absolutely the trip of a lifetime. We enjoyed seeing a true winter wonderland! The combination of beautiful fjord views from the boat, chasing the northern lights, dog sledding, the Snow Hotel, so many different experiences - there were a lot of beautiful moments to take in!

Kelly-Lynne, United States
Best of Northern Norway Classic, January 2023

Excellent

Absolutely superb hotels were selected. The itinerary was very clearly laid out and easily understood. Every excursion or extra activity was expecting us. We had no issues with the vouchers. We definitely feel we experienced the best of Tromsø. Great communication when excursions were cancelled because of weather conditions. Nordic Visitor was able to reschedule us on a different excursion quickly and easily. Local tours selected by Nordic Visitor were excellent, well run and definitely highlights of the trip.
