Arctic diving holiday, marine life & wildlife expedition
Memorable parts? All of it! The extremes of weather, the diversity of animals, the quality of the accommodation and facilities, and something you can't plan for - new found friends! Tips? Don't set your heart on seeing anything specific. Be prepared for the changes in weather. It's not as challenging as I expected - to take account of the huge spectrum of ages and abilities. But most of all HAVE FUN! Local benefits? Not so much the local people, though we did buy a lot... (more)Lisa Thomas
From £2990 excluding flights
Arctic sailing voyages, Spitsbergen
Absolutely outstanding, a once in a lifetime experience that surpassed all my expectations...Don't look anywhere else, this is the best way to see the Arctic! (more)Joshua Cox
Watching a mother and cub polar bear for over an hour, watching a male bear stalking reindeer...seeing and hearing a splendid walrus waking up and bellowing atop a small berg echoing around a small remote glacial bay!! (more)Jonathan Turner
Most memorable was watching a polar bear unsuccessfully hunting a seal, and then watching the seal taunt the polar bear by swimming and splashing behind it. Seeing blue whales was pretty amazing too. (more)Justin Watts
From £1650 - £3850 excluding flights
Spitsbergen wildlife cruises
Memorable parts? Seeing a mother polar bear and her two cubs walking on the ice floes walking along them then diving in and swimming to the next one. The cubs following on behind her. Fabulous! Tips? Be warm but also have some smart casual clothes to wear in the evening. When inside of the boat you can be relatively warm - have those layers for going out on deck where it can be cooler but you can watch the midnight sun or enjoy the on deck BBQ. If you want good photographs make sure... (more)Susie Barrett
From £2649 - £2699 excluding flights
Polar bear watching cruise in Svalbard, Norway
Memorable parts? The whole thing was amazing, being able to go out to parts of Svalbard that other ships can't get to was fantastic, and the wildlife that we saw there was the overall highlight. Tips? Book directly with the operator (the actual company that runs the trip - rather than an agent) to ensure that you get the correct packing list, pick-up information, flights, etc. Local benefits? Yes definitely, the operator are obviously very concerned with preserving the nature... (more)Renny Gye
From £3550 excluding flights
Sailing cruises in Norway
Excellent, I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves wilderness, culture, the landscape, interesting people, sailing, fishing, visiting a part of the world with great beauty, yet harshness, dramatic scenery, art (optional!) and getting away from our crowded world for a brief moment of paradise in a different climate. (more)Sally Sheppard
We had traditional saunas, hot-tubs, tried all the local foods, mostly prepared by our guide. We went walking, crab fishing on a restored traditional fishing boat, saw sea eagles, went to several museums learning about sami culture and the German occupation... I could go on... and even time to just sit and take it all in! (more)Sue Freestone
Most memorable was the endless views and complete quiet and relaxation. The sea eagles and SWARMS of puffins round Bird island. Charles' soups. (more)John Loder
From NKr10900 - NKr89000 excluding flights
Norway wildlife holiday
Memorable parts? Seeing the Northern Lights - we were lucky to see them as both the night before and after the skies had been too cloudy, it was a very surreal experience - they were so ethereal and beautiful. Tips? Try and keep a spare night free in case you fail to see the lights the first time you try, Tromso has numerous places that offer tours but some are cons so check them out carefully before parting with your money (I was lucky). Local benefits? The dog sledding... (more)Amandeep Manget
From £705 excluding flights
Cross country skiing in Norway
The scenery In Norway is beautiful especially after having a meter of snow the day before we arrived. It made the cross - country skiing area very beautiful. (more)Linda White
The place and the people that participated on the trip. The instruction from Ilsa was excellent, the lodge was very clean and well kept and hte food was first class. (more)Ellen Tarquinio
The friendliness and expertise of the leaders, the scenery and plenty of good food were the most memorable. (more)Catherine Harris
From £1099 - £1199 including UK flights
Northern Lights luxury short break, Norway
Every day was memorable but husky dog sledding was most exciting. (more)Sue McGahan
My holiday was perfect, I really enjoyed it...The most memorable thing of the holiday was the location. The lodge was a perfect place to stay indoors, and also the perfect place to enjoy the nature. (more)Marta Bindi
From £1299 excluding flights
Northern Lights and whale watching holiday in Norway
Memorable parts? Getting so close to the whales was a truly special experience. The boat was a beaut and so cosy. The scenery was breath taking during the day and the stars/Northern Lights were beautiful at night time. Tips? Take plenty of warm things including a hot water bottle to use as a cushion on deck! Local benefits? Run by independent local business so yes in that respect. Seeing the whales close up made us care even more about their conservation. Unsure about environment... (more)Yoshiko Stokoe
From NKr8300 excluding flights
Self guided cycling holiday in Norway, Sunnhordland fjords
Memorable parts? Scenery of biking. Tips? Maps for cycling should be better. Local benefits? Local tourism. Overall rating? 6.5/10. (more)Gail Rivett
From NKr8150 excluding flights
Lofoten Islands Arctic Circle sailing holiday
Memorable parts? Being woken in the night by the ship's bell and rushing on deck to see the Northern Lights! Tips? Don't expect to see penguins, polar bears or whales. Local benefits? Yes, we sailed whenever possible and made local purchases. Overall rating? It was an absolute pleasure. The itinerary was designed to keep everyone happy and entertained. The crew were friendly and helpful. The food was completely yummy (thanks Sonja). Our excursions took us to many beautiful... (more)Moira Mannas
From £1350 excluding flights
Spitzbergen expedition cruise to the Arctic
Excellent...The amazing and unusual weather we had, the great amoung of wildlife, the quality of all those running the trip. (more)Daphne Lott
great time !...Seeing polar bears and glaciers (more)Patricia Frochaux
Go if you want to see bits and pieces, to enjoy good food, to chit-chat, but if you're serious and know something about the Arctic and it's animals, etc., this operator will tend to disappoint. (more)Christopher Watts
From £3090 - £8965 excluding flights
Arctic Circle guest house, Vesteraalen Islands, Norway
Extremely good and will hold a special memory for us. We felt at home somehow and the local walk round to the lighthouse was really lovely (more)Mrs Jo Dunstone
My first ever fishing trip was pretty memorable ( I caught 7 fish!) and exciting was then eating our catch that night in Lone's restaurant but there was so much more to our week there. It is honestly one of the best holidays we have ever taken. (more)Rebecca Fraser
From £60 - £90 per double room per night

Norway walking holidays - Norway at its spectacular best

The best way to explore a new country is on foot. Taking to two legs automatically means travelling at a more leisurely pace and getting closer to the wildlife – from the trees and flowers that pepper the landscape to the birds and animals that live in it.

This summer, dust off those walking boots in a country that was made for hiking – Norway. In this Scandinavian beauty you’ll find everything from short strolls and rambles to long-distance tracks, crisscrossing a variety of terrain from the south’s dramatic coastline to the north’s arctic snowscapes. Walking routes pass through spectacular mountain ranges, into dense forests, across high plateaus and deep down into glacial valleys.
