Adventure Holidays in Norway

Delve into Norway’s remarkable, natural landscape as you discover the most stunning country on Earth. Dramatic arctic scenery and beautiful wildlife takes the breath of all adventure travellers embarking on a holiday to Norway.

Occupying the western part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Norway stands out as one of the most picturesque places on the planet. Tiny scandi fishing villages dotted around the country vastly contrast the dramatic Lofoten Islands, home to sharp granite cliffs that rise like a barricade out of the vast Norwegian Sea. Norway is a great place for walking and exploration during the summer months and a playground for ski touring and an opportunity to see the northern lights in the winter. 

Highlight of Norway

Few places on Earth offer a greater opportunity to grab a glimpse of the northern lights. The natural spectacle (also known as aurora borealis) lights up the night’s sky every year between November and February, reflecting off Norway’s snowy mountains and providing a light show that no onlooker will ever forget.
