Where stories begin
Search the skies for the extraordinary and dazzling dancing lights of the Northern Lights during the winter or stay up all night and gaze at the phenomenal midnight sun in the summer. See some of earth’s most natural wonders in a land where lights dance in the sky and the sun doesn’t set for months at a time.
Wind your way through the dramatic landscapes of the fjords and admire the sights of the sheer mountainsides that plunge into the deep, dark waters of the Norwegian fjords. With cascading waterfalls, mountain peaks and tiny hamlets, Norway is dotted with natural masterpieces and stunning contrasts.
Be mesmerized by the soaring peaks that tower over unspoilt forests, lakes, pristine glaciers, and the pretty villages that nestle in green pastures beneath forested slopes. Take in the stunning landscapes of Sognefjord, Geirangerfjord's hidden waterfalls, and the icy expanse of the Briksdal Glacier.
Marvel at the vast rugged coastline, with contrasting incredible jagged island mountains and endless open plateaus in northern Norway and keep an eye out for the elusive Northern Lights. Journey farther north to the ‘Gate-way to the Arctic’, Tromso – the largest settlement beyond the Arctic Circle and bear witness to its magnificent Arctic Cathedral that rises proudly from its bustling centre. Carve a passage through some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery in the historic city of Bergen.
Known as one of the most beautiful counties in the world, Norway gives you the opportunity to witness Mother Nature at her finest.
Thanks to Norway’s wild nature, deep fjords, vast land and long coastlines, traditional Norwegian cuisine is often mainly based on the raw materials readily available in the country’s mountains, wilderness, and coast.
Fishing is an integrated part of Norwegian culture, making seafood the heart and soul of Norwegian cuisine. The salmon, grilled or smoked, is not to be missed. Be sure to try gravat laks, an excellent salmon dish – cured in sugar, salt, brandy and dill, and served in a creamy sauce.
Many Norwegian dishes take a strong focus on fresh produce, mainly quality local grains and vegetables, game, lamb and cured meats. The game in Norway makes some of the country's most memorable meals. Some Norwegian chefs have obtained a reputation worldwide, often using the outstanding local produce, along with the country’s classic recipes and fusing them with cutting-edge culinary techniques and creativity.
Whether you’re a meat lover, seafood enthusiast or simply love fresh vegetables, Norway will make your trip unforgettable with its fresh dishes and delicacies.
