Back to Europe

Norway

The gateway to the Arctic Circle, Norway protects some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe. From the frozen wilds of the far north & the Svalbard Archipelago, to the ancient pine forests of central & eastern Norway, this is a wild and beautiful country, brimming with natural wonders.

On the roof of Africa

We had the best time ever. All 3 parts of the holiday (Kili/Pongwe/Stone town) were exceptional.

Discover the Norwegian Fjords

Your journey begins in the port of Bergen, where you’ll have time to explore the city’s UNESCO-listed medieval harbour and colourful outdoor markets, before embarking on an overnight cruise to Alesund and Andalnes via the famous Geiranger Fjord. Scenic rail journeys on the Rauma and Dovre railway lines, taking you through the Romsdal Alps and along the shore of Lake Mjosa, also form part of the adventure. The itinerary ends in Oslo, Norway’s vibrant capital.

The Lofoten Islands and the Midnight Sun

Travel far above the Arctic Circle to Norway’s magnificent Lofoten Islands on this 8-day self-drive holiday. The Lofoten islands are a photographer’s dream, with beautiful bays, white sandy beaches, deep fjords, and a spectacular 160km wall of mountains. Due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream, the climate in the Lofotens is surprisingly mild. During the summer months, the islands are famous for the midnight sun.

Early Winter in Arctic Spitsbergen

October to mid-November is a unique time to travel in Arctic Spitsbergen, as the seasons change and as the Polar winter closes in. During this time of year, you can still expect a limited amount of light each day, allowing for daytime activities such as winter Fatbiking, walking tours and day cruises within the vicinity of Longyearbyen. As the season progresses, these activities take place against a backdrop of longer nights and the near-constant spectacle of the aurora borealis.
