Norway Experiences

  • Norway is known for its Fjords and the one to visit is Geirangerfjord. This 20km long emerald green stretch of water, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is overlooked by farms that cling to the hillside. Take the ferry to Hellesylt and then take watch cars negotiate the last 7km of the spectacular Eagle’s Way as it twists its way down the fjord with 11 hairpin bends.
  • Take a ferry to the Lofoten Islands and you will be blown away as you approach these craggy land formations that look so inhospitable. The main islands of Austvågøy, Vestvågøy, Flakstadøy and Moskenesøy are all connected by bridges and tunnels and you can drive on the E10 and be blown away by the outstanding beauty surrounding you.
  • If you are after an Arctic experience then travel to Svalbard where the views are exactly how you dream the Arctic would look. This is a wilderness made up of glaciers, snowy peaks and foreboding icebergs. With more polar bears than humans and a rich history of polar exploration, it is hard to believe you are still in Europe. When you reach Longyearbyen you can go snowmobiling, jump on a huskie sled or take another boat trip further into the arctic.
  • The interest in Scandinavian design in recent years has made Norway a shopping destination. Young designers are bringing together traditional materials with contemporary styles. Certain foods such as 'Brown Cheese' and the traditional dried and salted leg of lamb can be purchased too.
  • Something of a culinary revolution has taken place in Norway in recent years. Many of the restaurants serve local and organic produce and are looking at ways to introduce traditional Norwegian cooking to the nation. You’ll normally find lamb on the menu but you will also see moose, reindeer, deer and grouse. Arctic cod, smoked salmon and stockfish are firm favourites too.
