Join us on a holiday to Norway

Few places on earth match the spectacle that is the breathtaking natural beauty of our tours in Norway. 

Discover a land of magnificent fjords and mighty mountains, of charming cities and vast open spaces, where the midnight sun shines in the summer and the Aurora Borealis dances across the skies in winter.

Any organised holiday to Norway should probably begin with an exploration of the fjords - Norway's unique and most astonishing attraction. Stretching hundreds of miles from the striking coast to the pristine inland regions, their still, deep waters are fringed with picture-book settlements and backed by a breathtaking landscape of forests, glaciers and snow-capped peaks.

Particularly popular with customers of Newmarket tours in Norway, the fjords welcome their many awe-struck guests from early spring all the way into late autumn, each season revealing a different aspect of their glory – spring’s apple blossom and the freshness of the awakening year, summer’s warm days, which are perhaps the best time to venture inland to view the vast Briksdal Glacier, and autumn’s red and gold, when the plunging waterfalls are at their tumultuous best.

Nestled in the hidden coves and along the waterside meadows of the fjords, waiting to welcome visitors on a Norwegian tour, you'll find some of the country's most charming settlements. Mighty Sognefjord leads to Balestrand, where the Kviknes Hotel has been welcoming visitors (most famously Kaiser Wilhelm II) since the 19th Century, and remote Flam, terminus of the world famous Flamsbana Mountain Railway. Tiny Ulvik lies deep in the heart of Hardangerfjord, and Geirangerfjord is home to several picture-perfect fjord-side villages. 

In the south-eastern corner of the country, Norway's capital, Oslo (which stands at the far end of its own little fjord) is small but perfectly formed and offers a plethora of things do for even the most discerning traveller. 

Almost entirely at the other end of the country lies another of its most popular destinations - Tromsø. A little over 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle, this colourful city is a jumping-off point for tours of Norway's vast northern wilderness. It's a place of warm, welcoming bars and restaurants, and never-ending summer sunlight, dominated by the stunning, strikingly modern Ishavskatedralen (Arctic Cathedral) with its vast, triangular stained-glass window. 

Even further north, in Alta, Honningsvag at mainland Europe's northernmost tip, and the remote Islands of Svalbard far out into the Arctic Ocean, Norway continues to offer astonishing sights and experiences and warm welcomes despite the isolation. In fact, wherever your chosen Norway tours take you, you'll find plenty to enjoy in what is easily one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Wherever you choose to travel on Newmarket tours in Norway, you’ll certainly be captivated by the country’s unbeatable Scandinavian charm.

  • The weather in Norway is warmer than you might think, given how far north the country is. In the north of Norway, summer temperatures can get up to almost 30°C, but tend to have cold, dark winters. Coastal areas have cooler summers, but milder winters. Inland, they have bitterly cold winters (up to minus 25°C), but warmer summers. 

  • Generally speaking, the best time to visit Norway is during the shoulder seasons, in spring (between May and June) or autumn (between September and October), when the weather is good and there aren't as many tourists as in high season (mid-June to August).

  • Like the other Scandinavian countries, Norway is considered an expensive country to visit. Accommodation, food and transport can all be very expensive in Norway.

    If you're thinking of visiting Norway, booking onto an escorted tour is a good way to save money.

  • In Norway, they use the Norwegian krone. For the latest exchange rates, see XE.

  • Yes you can. Historically, the time to glimpse the Northern Light in Norway is between October and March, when the long winter nights make the lights easier to spot. 

  • Norway is famous for its pristine fjords, clear waters and of course, the Northern Lights.

  • Norway has two official languages – Norwegian and Sami. However, Norwegian is by far the most common language spoken. English is also widely spoken, especially in tourist areas. 

    Below are a few useful phrases in Norwegian:

     

    Hello  Hallo
