Winter Tour to Norway

The Winter Tour to Norway features the Northern Lights, reindeer sledding and a stay at the ice hotel. Explore the vast stretches of serene, yet exhilarating landscapes, from the deep, blue-black fjords and rearing snowy peaks to jagged forested hills, from the seemingly limitless expanse of the Arctic tundra to the plunging river valleys. These grand scale landscapes are dotted with cosmopolitan cities and amiable small towns which exemplify the Scandinavian sophistication in architecture, design and the flair for living in one with nature. The essence of Norway’s appeal is remarkably simple: this is one of the most beautiful countries on earth, the ultimate nature-lover’s paradise.

Northern Lights
Northern Lights

Ever since the Aurora Borealis were first seen, their beauty has mesmerized all who have witnessed them. But what are they, and how are they created? The ancient Greenlanders thought the Northern Lights were a sign from heaven that their ancestors were trying to contact the living. The Norwegians saw them as old maids dancing. However, modern science tells us that the Lights are created by charged solar particles ejected from the Sun in a solar wind during explosions or flares. If these particles reach the Earth – a journey that takes two or three days – they are diverted around the planet by the Earth’s magnetic fields. more

Bergen
Bergen

The old Hanseatic city of Bergen proudly wears the nickname “Gateway to the fjords” for its supreme location close to the fjords of Western Norway. However, Bergen also boasts a proud history, a rich cultural life and an intimate urban city center, beautifully surrounded by seven mountains and several islands. Bryggen is a historic harbor district in Bergen, one of North Europe’s oldest port cities on the west coast of Norway which was established as a center for trade by the 12th century. In 1350, the Hanseatic League established a “Hanseatic Office” in Bergen. They gradually acquired ownership of Bryggen and controlled the trade in stockfish from Northern Norway through privileges granted by the Crown. more

The Red King Crab
The Red King Crab

The red king crab, which is native to the Pacific Ocean, was introduced in the Murmansk fjord near the Norwegian-Russian border by Russian scientists in the 1960s. It quickly migrated along the coast of Finnmark in Norway. This came despite early Norwegian attempts to halt the spread, due to concerns about how this alien species would affect marine life. Today, the red king crab is considered a delicacy and a vital part of the local fishing culture. Fresh from the cold and black Barents Sea, it is immediately flown down to the continent's gourmet restaurants, where it sold for prices only comparable with the most exclusive steaks. more

North Cape
North Cape

At 71°10′21′′, North Cape is the northernmost point on the European mainland. On a journey along the coast of Norway, passing through rough waters or snow covered terrain, suddenly a mountain cliff comes into view, rising 1,000 feet above the Arctic Ocean. While travelers once had to climb up the cliff, now it is accessible by bus from Honningsvåg. Still, the feeling of walking up to the cliff is extraordinary, with an overwhelming feeling of being at the end of the world as we know it. This is the same feeling the first explorers must have had when they reached this majestic cliff in 1553, in search of the Northeast Passage. more

Trondheim
Trondheim

Trondheim occupies a special place in Norwegian history and is the best place to discover medieval Norway. The name Trondheim derives from the old Norse Þróndheimr, meaning home of the strong and fertile ones. Previously called Kaupangen, Nidaros, and Trondhjem, Trondheim was Norway’s first capital, founded in 997 by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason. But even before the Pilgrims and the Viking Age, people were drawn to the region by the seafood rich fjords, vast mountain ranges with an abundance of wildlife and some of the most fertile soil in the country. more
