With less than 5 million people visiting each year, Norway really is a country to visit sooner rather than later. Fly to Trondheim and you can easily reach the remote and sparsely populated north of the country. Here you will have your best chance to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis.
Besides its natural beauty, Norway is home to fantastic museums and art galleries such as Oslo’s Nasjonalgalleriet. You can see Edvard Munch’s The Scream there, amongst other things. You’ll find museums dedicated to Norwegian culture and Norse mythology, the Vikings, and much more. The cities are an eclectic mix of old timber buildings and modern, contemporary masterpieces in-keeping with the tradition of sleek Scandinavian design.
Think Norway, think fjords. With over 1,100 to choose from, it can be tricky to know where to start. Geirangerfjord, Nærøyfjord, and Aurlandsfjord are amongst the most famous and therefore most visited. There are so many other wonderful fjords to choose from, particularly around Stavanger where you’ll find the spectacular Lysefjord.

Oslo Airport – Filled with wonderful museums and surrounded by glorious forests and lakes, Oslo really is a fantastic city to visit. History buffs are well catered for at the Radhouse where you can learn about Norwegian history and mythology - it’s also where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded every year on December 10th. The Vikingskipshuset is home to 3 excavated Viking longboats and is a great place to spend a few hours. Fans of opera and ballet will find the new Operahuset more than a match for any foreign rival.

Stavanger Airport – This attractive port is the 3rd largest city in the country. It is the perfect starting point to explore the southern fjords such as Lysefjord. There’s a huge amount of modern history to absorb as well including a number of World War II sites which serve as a reminder of the Nazi occupation.
Trondheim Airport – Laidback Trondheim is the perfect place to start your break. Particularly if you’re here for the Northern Lights or looking to explore the north. If you want to get to know the city, start at Bakklandet. Its cobbled streets and picturesque waterfront are typically Scandinavian and filled with cafés. Trondheim is home to some truly wonderful architecture and the striking cathedral wouldn’t look out of place in Paris or Rome.
Bergen Airport – Perhaps the prettiest urban area in Norway, Bergen is home to the gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bryggen. Its timbered alleys a reminder of the town’s once thriving fishing industry. Surrounded by lakes, mountains, and forests, Bergen has much to offer from an outdoors point of view whilst its flourishing restaurant and café scene offers ample rewards after a hard day’s hike.Book now
