Norway: Holidays and Adventures

Discover beautiful views on our Norway holidays

One of the highlights of Scandinavian adventures, Norway Holidays are a joy year round, whether you’re travelling with family, as a couple or independently. Renowned for its perennial beauty, featuring glistening fjords and humbling mountain ranges, the Norwegian landscape offers incomparable views and, of course, plenty of chances for the perfect picture!

With a population of under five million (just over half that of London) and a land mass of almost 150,000 square miles, Norway provides the ideal location for those wanting to get away from the crowds, with seemingly endless stretches of sparsely populated countryside.

Winters here are cold, as is to be expected so far north, and yet the country boasts temperatures noticeably warmer than other destinations at similar latitudes. Norway’s idyllic snowy backdrop provides an ideal setting for an incredible range of seasonal pursuits. From snowmobiling, to dog sledding and snowshoe excursions, there is a wide variety of winter activities to be enjoyed on Norway Holidays.

In the summer, temperatures rise significantly in Norway. Indeed, they’ve been known to top 30°C under the Midnight Sun. The long, bright days are a total reverse from the wintry weather and bring plenty of new pursuits to try on a Norway Holiday. Hiking in the peaks is a popular attraction, as are breaks in the modern cities. Indeed, whenever you travel, you’ll find more than enough to ensure you’ll love every minute in Norway.
