Norway holidays offer some of the most dramatic scenery on earth. The country is also home to quaint fishing villages, picturesque national parks, glistening glaciers and fjords and the sub-polar archipelago of Svalbard.
Visit Oslo on a city break or as part of a guided tour, or head north to Norway's northernmost metropolis Tromso and ride through the Arctic countryside on a reindeer or husky sleigh, cross country ski, or search for killer whales on the open sea.
What Type Of Holiday Are You Looking For?
Fly via Oslo to the icy archipelago of Svalbard and visit the tiny town of Longyearnyen. This unique and fascinating destination, located half way between Norway and the North Pole, is home to more polar bears than people. Glide over the snow on a dog sledding tour, embark on a snowmobile safari and go in search of the incredible aurora borealis in a snow-cat.
During the summer months the sun never sets and visitors can enjoy boat trips into polar fjords, hiking over glittering glaciers and kayaking around the remote Spitsbergen coastline in the crisp Arctic air. For those wanting to explore this natural environment for longer, why not join one of our Arctic Cruise Expeditions.
The highlight of any voyage to Spitsbergen or Northern Greenland is seeing polar bears in their natural habitat. These impressive Arctic giants can weigh up to 1,200 pounds and feed mostly on seals which rest on the sheet ice.
In 2008 the polar bear was listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act, which cited sea ice losses from global warming as the single biggest threat. Scientists predict that unless we take action to stop climate change, we will lose two-thirds of polar bears by the middle of the century and all of them by the end of the century.
