Our favorite part is the coastal region, which has been our Northern playground for adventures and explorer cruises since 2005. This beautiful coastline is the world’s second longest (100,900 km) and comes with a whole plethora of Nordic legends.
WELCOME TO NORWAY
Our Northern Playground
Norway is a fascinating destination; a nature lover’s paradise that also boasts numerous vibrant, trendy and historic cities to explore. Whether you’re an adventure seeker, culinary lover, or simply want to snuggle up in a glass igloo and watch the stunning Northern lights, Norway won’t disappoint.
Stretching from Lindesnes in the south to Kirkenes in the north and then further beyond to the northern island of Svalbard, close to the North Pole.
We fulfill the dreams of modern explorers through a combination of nature, cultural and local culinary experiences and tailored seasonal activities. These are designed to be inclusive for all fitness levels and multi-generational.
Today Norway is still a nature haven, with a small population of around 5.4 million people. The country enjoys political and economic stability, with friendly locals happily speaking English with our foreign guests.
Even though most parts of the country are off the beaten track, Norway has an extensive network of roads, ferries, and small airports with regular flights between cities and small towns, and further connections to mainland Europe, US, Asia, and the South Pacific.
Within three hours of boarding a flight in the capital Oslo, you can be in the middle of the Arctic wilderness of Svalbard – an island with more polar bears than people.
Starting your adventure on the south coast, the fantastic capital of Oslo is a perfect hub for inbound international flights. It’s a vibrant city packed with culture, foodie delights and lies scenically alongside the fjord. From Oslo you can marvel at the beautiful, rugged coastline as you head further south with one small village after another with typical red and white wooden houses.
Alternatively, you can travel in style on historic boats through the water routes. Upon reaching the windy southern tip at Cape Lindesnes, nature changes suddenly, it gets wilder and rougher, and the open ocean welcomes you.
HOT SPOTS SOUTHERN NORWAY
Western Norway & the Fjords
This part of Norway is known for its beautiful fjords and alpine mountains that start in the North Sea and rise for hundreds of kilometers inland. The region has been a favourite of European nobility and other famous visitors since the late 1800’s, including Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany and the British climber William Cecil Slingsby, who made many first ascents there.
The whole region is packed with world heritage sites, fantastic nature and glaciers, spectacular hikes, centuries old stave churches, picturesque cities and so much more.
