Norway

Perfect all year round, Norway offers excellent winter activities, Northern Lights, husky and reindeer sledding, majestic fjords and a multitude of islands to discover.

Occupying the western half of Scandinavia and spiking up into the Arctic Circle, Norway is known for its amazing and varied scenery. Its intense natural beauty is dominated by its famously rugged mountains and deep fjords carved out and shaped by an ancient Ice Age. Mountains extend down the spine of the country, and fjords pierce the landmasses to the west and south – these are two of Norway’s most dominant features. The country’s capital, Oslo, is the fastest-growing in Europe with an exciting food scene, music and culture. It is also home to Bergen with its World Heritage listed wharf, Bryggen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Tromsø and Kristiansand. Northern Norway is one of the best places to see the incredible Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) which are a common natural phenomenon with unbelievable colours flashing across the Arctic sky. This is one of the world’s most stunning visual experiences - on the bucket list of most travellers.

When to Go

A&K Europe Travel Experts suggest that Norway can be visited year round. In the summer months, between June and August, experience the Midnight Sun when days are long and perfect for hiking, cycling or cruising. May and September offer mild temperatures, with fewer crowds while the Northern Lights sparkle from September onwards, peaking from December to February.
