Norway is all about nature at its finest, and is a year around playground for adventure seekers – hiking, kayaking, mountain climbing, skiing, cycling, glacier walks, show shoeing -- and we can tailor-make your adventure. Oslo, the capital, offers a number of experiences: Vigeland Park with its fascinating sculpture garden, the Kon Tiki and Viking Museums. For art lovers, the Edvard Munch Museum is a must.
When to Visit
While summer is prime tourist season to visit Norway and the fjord region, there’s lots to experience in other seasons, when you can have this natural wonderland more to yourself and have more exclusive and authentic travel experiences. Norway has branded the off-season as the Go Viking season, from October to April. The fjords are spectacular with snow-covered mountains, with winter sports like skiing and show shoeing popular.
Food in Norway
Norway is known for fresh local food and drink. It’s hard not to enjoy the pickled herring and Norwegian salmon when on a vacation in Norway. And where else can you buy caviar in a tube? Not into seafood? Carnivores should try reindeer meat. Cider production is popular and you can take a cider safari in Hardanger. Bareksten gin has won the gold medal twice as world’s best. (You might even meet up with founder Steve Barejksten.) Michelin dining is also available, like at RE-NAA, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Stavanger. We might even arrange a dinner with a Viking chief in a Viking home if you fancy it!
