When to Go
- BEST TIMES: The long days of northern summer May-September are warm and dry for adventures.
- ALSO CONSIDER: The winter days are short and cold, not the ideal time to experience Norway.
A sparsely populated land of dramatic fjords winding between jutting mountains and untouched forests, Norway travel is anything but ordinary. Packed with opportunities for adventure, you might paddle a kayak through inlets, hike historic farms, or cruise the waterfront by electric bicycle. If you prefer to relax, enjoy a picnic with a panoramic view and listen to some Viking lore. The multitude of options makes our Norway adventure tours perfect for families of all ages.
From glacier walks and snowshoeing to jet boating and summer skiing, Norway is an often-overlooked wilderness playground. Explore hidden landscapes as the locals do alongside expert guides who handle the gear and the finely tuned logistics so you can dive right into Norway’s active adventures.
With over 1,000 glacier-carved fjords, 240,000 islands, and 64,000 miles of jagged coastline comprising its relatively small square mileage, Norway delivers an outsized wealth of hidden coves and sheltered bays, tranquil beaches, and dramatic waterfalls. Among this stunning terrain a bounty of wildlife frolics, including moose, oxen, wolves, and reindeer.
Viking history is inextricably linked to the essence of Norway and a visit to the Lofotr Viking Museum on the scenic Lofoten archipelago lends a living history lesson inside its reconstructed Chieftain’s longhouse—an evocative replica of a 1,000-year-old remnant found at the site. Yet Norwegian culture is equally focused on the modern era, as reflected in its cutting-edge architecture and a burgeoning farm to fork food movement.
