Norway is a true celebration of the great outdoors. With a population of just five million inhabiting this staggering landscape of fjords and mountains, Norway is the ideal choice to find an uninterrupted slice of wilderness. Norway holiday experiences vary with the seasons. In winter snow sports like cross-country skiing and snowshoeing introduce visitors to Norway’s natural environment. Overlooked by snowy mountains, Tromso – Northern Norway’s Arctic Capital – provides the perfect base for a short city break, with whale-watching trips departing from the city harbour, reindeer and snowmobile safari’s just a short drive away, and northern lights viewing opportunities abundant. In fact, with winter aurora safaris boasting a sighting success rate of over 90%, this is one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights.

But when May comes around, the vast expanses of snow that blanket the countryside in the winter months recede to the mountaintops, uncovering an alluring landscape of craggy boulders and rugged peaks, glacier-carved fjords and verdant green valleys, criss-crossed with hiking trails and dotted with wooden mountain cabins. Visit Lofoten and Vesteralen, two of Northern Norway’s prettiest archipelagos, where traditional red fishing villages cluster at the feet of soaring mountains, home to sea and white-tailed eagles, entice keen hikers and photographers alike. Ideal for independent travellers, this idyllic stretch of coast is well suited to summer fly-drives.

For intrepid travellers, the remote island of Spitsbergen provides adventure of epic proportion; situated half way between the northern tip of mainland Norway and the North Pole, the winter months are illuminated only by the northern lights as the sun sits below the horizon for 24 hours, instead shining all day during the summer months, meaning visitors can experience the arctic under the midnight sun.

Ella Stearns
If you’re heading to Northern Norway and have more time to play with than just visiting Tromsø on a city break, travel up to the beautiful Lofoten and Vesterålen islands; the scenery here is out of this world. Whale-watching trips abound in Tromsø, but feel even more special just offshore of these remote archipelagos. Fewer boats here mean more intimate and authentic experiences with the orca and humpback whales that feed in the fjords.

Ella's Tips
1
Take the Flam Railway, voted one of National Geographic Traveller's most beautiful train journeys in Europe.
2
Sample cod tongues in Lofoten, a local delicacy often caught by the fishermen.
3
In the summer, the Helgeland coast is one of the best areas for kayaking, with myriad narrow fjords, remote beaches and mountains.
