Welcome to Northern Norway – where nature will surprise you, and the culture will amaze you.
… and listen to the other-worldly sounds of the joik.
You see, this part of Norway is where the majority of the country's indigenous people live – the Sami – and their ancient song tradition is simply captivating.
The seafood here is world-class, and you might get the catch of your life at any time of the year.
However, if you visit between January and April, you can try to reel in a big skrei – the migrating Atlantic cod arriving from the Barents Sea.
Or perhaps a king crab safari is more your style?
Seafood is not the only culinary treasure from the region. The Arctic kitchen is a feast of flavours, and exclusive reindeer meat is a must try if you get the chance.
Glittering fjords, staggering peaks and unspoilt nature await.
Have fun at one of the white beaches, check out some of Norway's top kayaking spots, go hiking and even surfing (!) …
… or embrace the snow and go ski touring or dog sledding in winter.
You can also go on a guided whale safari …
The biggest city in this region is Tromsø – the world's northernmost university town.
Here, you can show off your best moves on a night out, check out cool art exhibitions and enjoy the urban vibes.
The Tromsø Cable Car takes you to the top of Mount Storsteinen …
Halfway between Norway and the North Pole, is where you'll find the Svalbard Islands. Here, you can participate in exotic nature-based activities all year round in a landscape that is both rugged and fragile.
There's a lot of unique adventures waiting for you in Northern Norway, but remember to find a cosy place to recharge as well.
Appreciate the slow life and enjoy the silence in a lighthouse or an old fishermen's cabin.
Or venture into the fjords, like the narrow Trollfjorden, with the coastal express Hurtigruten.
