Norway: holidays and cruises with more than a touch of Scandinavian sophistication
There’s no bad time of year for a holiday or cruise along the coast of Norway. Every season has something special to offer, and we can help you create your own tailored trip. Whether you’ve always dreamed of experiencing the northern lights, cruising along the magnificent fjords or admiring the colourful clapboard houses dotted along Norway’s rugged shore, your bespoke holiday in Norway awaits.
Depending on the route you chose, you could take in the capital, Oslo, where your guide will help you appreciate the country’s past as you marvel at the exhibits in the Viking Ship Museum. Or Bergen, with its colourful wharf and snow-capped mountain border.
The best time to see the northern lights is between November and March. Our deluxe cruise in Norway travels north to the Svalbard islands, when you’re in the best place for a great view. The sights aren’t all in the sky, though: look out for whale, seal and walrus, too.
If you fancy experiencing 24-hour sunlight, June and July will deliver, while you will find low-season tranquility between October and April.
The fun certainly doesn’t stop there: you can dog sled, ride on a snowmobile, ski or hike across the icy plains. And, of course, there are many ways to travel through the fjords too. Maybe a self-drive would suit, an epic journey by train or taking to the waters on a yachting trip around the Lofteton islands.
See Norway your way.
