Norway Family Journey


Custom | 7 Days | Easy to Moderate Touring and Active
  • This itinerary is just a starting point: we'll design a trip specifically for your family
  • Explore unforgettable fjord landscapes, with dazzling mountains, islands, and coastlines
  • Options for hiking, e-biking, jet boating, rafting, sledding, ferry riding, and more
  • Superb Norwegian guides share local connections, Viking folklore, and the best cuisine and secret spots
  • Ultimate flexibility: The gear travels with you, so you can play at whim 

According to legend, it was the struggle between the Norse gods, man-eating trolls, and the Ice Giants of Jotunheimen that carved the eye-popping fjord landscapes of western Norway. Your guides share more Viking lore while carefully leading you through a stunning, sparsely populated, lesser-frequented region of offshore islands, glistening lakes, and towering mountains. Flexible options abound, from hiking and biking to boating and sledding. There's time for farm picnics, strawberry picking, watching birds and seals, and relaxing in timeless villages and lovely family-friendly lodges. And if you've got a few more days for your adventure, we recommend visiting the sensational Lofoten archipelago.

Optional 4-Day Extension

Lofoten Archipelago

The Lofoten Islands are a remote wilderness of majestic mountains, deep fjords, fishing villages, squawking seabird colonies, and long, surf-swept beaches. Its diverse landscapes and surprisingly mild climate (thanks to the Gulf Stream) set the scene for excellent surfing, hiking, biking, fishing, ocean rafting, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
