Norway Luxury Travel

Luxury Travel In Norway

Norway luxury travel is synonymous with beauty. Lots of it. Sculpted mountains soar over glassy fjords. Storybook towns with row boat-lined canals abound. Northern lights blaze over the rivers. With so much natural inspiration it’s no wonder Norway is a hub for outdoor adventure and design. Our Norway luxury trips will introduce you to surprising facets of both. Many have perched on natural stone lookouts over the fjords, but few realize Norway’s cool waters offer some of the most miraculous snorkeling around. Time your Norway luxury vacation just right and you may have the rare opportunity to watch orca hunt herring, or to share the waters with gentle humpbacks. Likewise, Scandinavian design is instantly recognizable, but spend the night in a fantastical ice hotel or experience Norway’s raw nature from the spectacular landscape hotel, the Juvet, and you’ll have an entirely new appreciation for innovative design—stunning in its simplicity and respect for the natural world.

Visitors to this region of Northern Europe experience strong immigrant roots, modern European values and the great outdoors like none other. Its residents are some of Europe’s most prosperous and literate, and each of its unique cities are remarkably big, lively and distinct.

Luxury Travel In Norway
Our custom Norway vacations are in a category all their own. We can arrange for you to conquer racing rapids and hike to the top of Hardangerfjord with your family, sail through UNESCO World Heritage sites on your honeymoon, enjoy the colorful fish markets and wharf pubs with old friends in charming Bergen, or indulge with a solo cultural retreat to Oslo’s Opera House, museum-packed waterfront, and nearby stave churches. The summers are pleasantly mild—perfect for trekking to waterfalls; and the winters are glittering—a painterly backdrop for sleigh rides in Lofoten and cozy cottages in Svalbad. Whether you want to go on a wildlife tour in search of orca, listen to a choir performance beneath the Northern Lights in an arctic cathedral, or follow the paths of Vikings, we will create your once-in-a-lifetime, private, customized Norway journey.

Popular Destinations in Norway

Bergen, Norway
The perfect medieval trading town, with a stunning cityscape, lush mountains and fjords, winding cobblestone streets and pastel-colored wooden houses.

The hometown of one of the world's most popular music creators, Kygo, sounds, feels, and tastes like nothing else. Fresh seafood and other local delicacies match a bustling art scene of museums and galleries. The streets of this capital of the fjords is full of wooden, fairy tale houses with the seven mountains as a backdrop.

The medieval Hanseatic wharf of Bryggen, with its around 60 historic buildings in succession, is on the UNESCO World Heritage list and several foundations date back to the 12th century.

The Lofoten Islands
While the fjords cut into the land, Lofoten is shaped like a big arm that stretches out in the sea. The many mountain peaks point towards the Arctic sky like church spires, and in between them you’ll find traditional villages full of fishermen and artists.

Try everything from local food made of seafood and lamb to beaches of white sand and the Lofotr Viking Museum. It is also easy to travel to the mainland, or to Helgeland and the UNESCO-listed Vega archipelago further south.

The Geirangerfjord
The Seven Sisters and numerous other waterfalls run down steep mountain sides that end in the clear, blue water of the 9.3 miles long Geirangerfjord. Here, you’ll find the natural peace and quiet of one of the world’s top nature attractions.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is even more present off season.The immediate surrounding regions also have a lot to offer the whole year round.

Tromsø
A few main streets manage to create an urban, international vibe – polar style. The city on the peninsula of Tromshalvøya justifies the nickname “capital of the Arctics” and has a multitude of things to do and see, ranging from the Polaria Centre, The Polar Museum, and the local Mack brewery established I 1877, to whale spotting, midnight sun, and northern lights.

Tromsø is the largest city in Northern Norway. None the less, the surrounding steep mountains and deep fjords are so close to the city center that you can admire them from the main street.

Oslo, Norway
Set against the sparkling waters of the Oslo Ford, this city has an abundance of charming parks and suburbs. It also has many first-rate museums, including the Kon-Tiki Museum that displays adventurer Thur Heyerdahl's legendary ocean raft. Stroll the grounds around the King of Norway's palace or visit the unique Vigeland Sculpture Park. With glorious natural surroundings, Oslo is perfect for fishing, camping and some of the world's best cross-country skiing. The city's pubs and jazz spots attract a trendy, young crowd.

The Svalbard Islands
This huge island group in the northernmost part of Europe takes wildlife to next level, and at the same time the society is very well organised. Here you can participate in exotic, nature based activities, all year round.

You will experience Svalbard as locals do, and guides are often living the adventure. The main city of Longyearbyen is a mini metropole because it offers services and very good places to eat that you usually would expect to find in big cities.

Flåm
A 12.5 miles long mountain railway journey takes you through the beautiful landscapes of the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, an arm of the Sognefjord.

Keep in mind that one of the most travelled sites in Norway is far less busy and crowded in spring, fall, or even early summer.

Sognefjord
The Sognefjord is Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, and it’s famous arm the Nærøyfjord has World Heritage status. The surrounding mountain areas are amongst Norway’s most popular hiking areas. The Sognefjord extends from the coast just north of Bergen to the mighty mountains of the Jotunheimen National Park and the blue ice of the Jostedalsbreen glacier.

There are strong food traditions in the Sognefjord area, and the mild climate, fresh air and abundance of lush mountain pastures mean that the Sognefjord area produces fresh ingredients of high quality.

The Stavanger region
50 years as Norway’s oil capital hasn’t spoiled the charm of this seaside city, nor has it changed the fact that the region has some of Norway’s main hiking attractions.

Here, you can explore the Lysefjord area and famous mountains plateaus like Preikestolen (“The Pulpit Rock”). Local food is served at both Michelin-starred restaurants and likewise ambitious, but more low-key eateries.

Trondheim
With a population of 193,000, Trondheim is not a big city on a European scale. However, it is the third largest in Norway. The wide range of things to do may in part be attributed to the city’s students, who number more than 30,000.

The students leave their mark on the city by arranging many events, as well as attending the city’s other cultural offerings.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Norway is during the shoulder seasons, in spring (between May and June), and fall (between September and October), when the weather is amazing and there aren't that many tourists.
