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.

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.

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.

Norway By Activity

Additional Information

When to travel

Norway can be visited year-round, but provides a very different experience in winter and summer months.

June to August have long daylight hours and a climate that is perfect for cycling, walking and cruising, while October to April provide opportunities for viewing the Northern Lights and participating in a host of winter-based activities, including snow shoeing, dog sledding and more.

May and September are shoulder season, but should not be overlooked. These months offer dramatic landscapes and colours, and typically mild weather. May is prime flowering time.

Spitsbergen experiences even more extreme seasonal variations than mainland Norway. March through April is peak season for winter and spring activities, providing the right conditions and sufficient daylight for activities such as ice caving, snowmobile expeditions, and dog sledding. Mid-summer has little snow and the long daylight hours make this time of year perfect for cruises, polar bear watching, walking, kayaking and diving.

Kilimanjaro & Zanzibar

All of the guides had something different to bring and getting to know them a little was a joy.
