The picturesque capital of Oslo is a blend of verdant greens and deep blues, complimenting its delightful location at the head of the Oslo fjord with a cityscape brimming with flourishing gardens. Offering an excellent array of exciting cultural and adventure activities, Oslo is Norway’s most popular point of call.
Kristiansand is Norway’s most southerly city and also its sunniest, making it one of the country’s most popular holiday destinations among locals. Boasting a range of golden beaches, stunning scenes and interesting attractions, Kristiansand is like a tiny slice of Mediterranean in the north.
Bergen hums with a lively beat that belies its age, welcoming visitors to its narrow, colourful streets and beautifully sheltered harbour. Nautical spirit is well and truly alive in this scenic city where colourful markets demand attention and the seafood is unbeatable. The wharfside area of Bryggen is particularly charming, lined with bright warehouses surrounded by quirky restaurants, cafés and artists’ workshops.
Away from the colourful mainland cities lie Norway’s proudest treasures; a collection of tremendous fjords that are both humbling and awe-inspiring. The Sognefjord is Norway’s longest, sweeping through the heart of the Norwegian fjord country where it is surrounded by glistening glaciers and the country’s highest mountains. Geirangerfjord is a striking region where cascading waterfalls, rugged cliffs and tremendous mountains are mirrored in the deep blue stillness of the water, while further north, the Lofoten islands are a spectacular network of inlets and isles.
One of the most impressive of all is the Naeroyfjord, one of the narrowest in Europe and included on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Sail past towering mountains, traditional farms and perhaps even glimpse seals basking on the rocks.
The North Cape is an area of the world few have the pleasure of exploring and can truly be coined the journey of a lifetime. Call into the world’s northernmost town of Hammerfest or the unique Tromsø, where the sun never rises in winter and in midsummer it never sets.
