A World of Landscapes

Norway holidays will transport you to one of the most rugged and beautiful countries on earth. A land of stunning coastline where towering mountains plunge into amazing fjords, lit up by the magical midnight sun and the glittering northern lights, offering mountain hiking, six-month skiing seasons, whale safaris and fishing in crystal clear waters. You’ll struggle to find another country with such diverse and striking landscapes, and with an array of engaging and thrilling outdoor pursuits.

From smart and sophisticated cultural hubs like the capital city of Oslo, the atmospheric southern capital Kristiansand and the traditional charm of Trondheim, to the core of scenic grandeur in and around the likes of Bergen and Bodo – your holidays to Norway will be an awe-inspiring affair, whether standing among mountains and lakes or cathedrals and malls.

Modern Lures and Traditional Charm

Norway’s capital is one of modernised sophistication and forward-thinking, balanced delightfully with cultural and historical significance. Oslo provides an intriguing and atmospheric destination to visit during your Norway holidays, displaying striking landmarks like the Royal Palace and Oslo Cathedral, engaging museums like the National Gallery and the Viking Ship Museum, while possessing a great shopping scene and many green spaces in which to relax.

Outside of the capital, there are numerous cities dotted around this vast country that boast many tricks up their sleeves. From the beautiful old city of Trondheim with its stunning cathedral, pretty riverside wharfs and wooden buildings, to the medieval churches, ancient caves and beautiful cobbled squares of Stavanger. In the far north you’ll discover Tromso, with its modern cathedral, mountain backdrop and Arctic locations. The city proves to be one of the best places to spot the staggering Northern Lights - just make sure you bring a warm coat. The country’s major cities will provide the best choice of Norway hotels, ensuring you find maximum comfort between your museum and church hopping throughout your holidays in Norway.

Embracing the Dramatic Scenery

It isn’t exactly a bad thing when you’re referred to as one of the world’s most beautiful countries, though it does raise the expectations of visitors. But it won’t take long before you realise that this tag is well justified, and most holidaymakers achieve this realisation once they have experienced the splendour of Bergen. The old capital is one of the most scenically-striking destinations on the planet, from its charming wooden buildings and mountain backdrop, to the remarkable western fjords – outdoor lovers and culture vultures will revel in Norway’s most stunning destination.

The scenic grandeur will only continue during your holidays to Norway, with a variety of landscapes and attractions spread around the country. In Jostedalsbreen you can encounter Europe’s largest glacier, while in Jotunheimen you can traverse the country’s highest mountains – or just capture them on your camera. The breath-taking region of Sognefjordan boasts both of these attractions, providing visitors with glaciers and mountains in equal proportion.

Many holidaymakers are now choosing to head to this Nordic gem to embark on Norway ski holidays. The country has become a popular spot for those packing their skis or board, with many considering the Norwegian mountains as a close rival to the Alps, with great alpine and cross country skiing on offer. Hafjell and Hemsedal are two of the most popular resorts, but you can even get a bit of cross country action in the capital city.
