The fjords and mountains of Norway are the perfect arena for exhilarating nature experiences and activities, such as white water rafting, cycling, kayaking, glacier walking, hiking, RIB boat safaris and more.
The above summer activities are all available in the fjord and mountain region of Southern Norway, and are accessible both by car and by public transport. One very popular option is joining an organised tour including several group activities.
In winter Norway offers a wide selection of exciting activities, such as dog sledding, reindeer sledding, snowmobiling, king crab safaris, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. In combination with ice hotels, cruises and the northern lights you have the perfect recipe for a wonderful winter adventure holiday.
The winter activities and attractions above are available in Northern Norway, the land of the northern lights. In Kirkenes you will find Kirkenes Snow Hotel and in Alta Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel. Both locations offer winter activities in combination with a stay at the ice hotel – a must for the modern adventurer.
Another popular Norwegian winter destination is the northern lights capital of Tromsø. Here you have the possibility to combine arctic urban life with winter activities and northern lights safaris that take place outside the centre, away from the lights of the city.

According to ancient legend, the name Norway comes from the old norse word Norðrvegr, which means “the way north”, a name given to this long and craggy coast because it was largely ice-free in the wintertime.
