Norway in a few words...

True land of contrasts, Norway will surprise and delight you with its diversity. In the South, you will find great fjords and majestic glaciers. In the North, boreal forest and vast expanses of wilderness. The mountainous islands of Lofoten, whose sharp peaks rise from lagoons with turquoise waters, lie along the western coast. From the midnight sun in summer to the northern lights in winter, Norway offers a natural contrasting colour palette that has inspired the greatest painters and best photographers. 

From the Viking culture to the Sami people, modern infrastructures to wooden churches, the culture of fishing to the Nobel Peace Prize... A trip to Norway is a trip back in time, discovering links between minimalist modernism and centuries-old tradition.

Highlights in Norway

Kayaking in fjords, Northern Norway

Lofoten Islands

One of the most spectacular landscapes in Europe, a combination of sea and mountain unlike anywhere else. You will see dizzying, sharp peaks, white sand beaches and fjords with turquoise waters. If you can take your eyes off the landscape, there is always the possibility of spotting killer whales and sea eagles.

Northern lights in Husøy, Norway

Husøy

Husøy is a village connected to the island of Senja via a 300 metre causeway. ..up until fairly recently it was only accessible by boat! The village covers the entire island of Husøy and with it's remote location is a brilliant place to view the northern lights.

Trolltunga, Norway

Trolltunga

This rocky promontory (the tongue of the troll) rises 400 meters above Lake Ringedal. While it takes around 10 hours of hiking to get there, you won't regret your efforts once you arrive at one of Norway's most photogenic places.

Jumping on Kjeragbolten

Kjeragbolten

Sometimes nature is full of surprises. How did this granite ball end up stuck between two vertical walls, suspended above a fjord? It is believed that the children of the trolls, living not far from here, were playing with it and accidentally got it stuck in this unlikely spot.
