Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers, and deep coastal fjords. Oslo, the capital, is a city of green spaces and museums. Preserved 9th-century Viking ships are displayed at Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum. Bergen, with colorful wooden houses, is the starting point for cruises to the dramatic Sognefjord. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking, and skiing, notably at Lillehammer’s Olympic resort. Norway offers visitors an incredible mix of cultural and natural wonders. From cosmopolitan Oslo to its endless snowcapped mountain peaks and deep fjords, there’s no end of choices for travelers in the land of the midnight sun and stunning northern lights.
A bucket-list destination for many walkers, Norway is an outdoor lovers’ paradise! There are plenty of options for those considering walking holidays in Norway. Enjoy way-marked trails through peaceful forests and mountain trails to impressive viewpoints on our Sognefjordand Hardangerfjord trips.

We take great pride in our route guides, updating them constantly so that you have the most current information and can enjoy the richest possible holiday experience.
