Our national labelling scheme

Visit a destination with a focus on sustainability

Visit a destination that is a part of the national labelling scheme Sustainable Destination. Although it is not yet 100 per cent sustainable in every way, the label indicates that the destination is working systematically with sustainable tourism development.

Dynamic Variation:

There are many positive sides to tourism, but the industry is also faced with challenges. If you’re eager to experience a unique destination that can give you memories for life, visit places in Norway that are labelled by the Sustainable Destination scheme. These destinations have committed to work systematically towards a more sustainable tourism development, preserving local communities and cultural heritage, and reducing the environmental footprint from tourism. 

Please keep in mind, though, that although the destinations are not yet completely sustainable, they have embarked on a process of continuous improvement.

If you are seeking unforgettable cultural experiences, you can travel to cosy small towns with rich local traditions, such as Røros, Lærdal, or the villages in Setesdal.

You can also visit the arts and literature city of Lillehammer, home of the 1994 Olympics, or experience the perfect combination of culture and farming on The Golden Road at Inderøy in Trøndelag.

Some of Norway’s most breathtaking landscapes can be found by the Lysefjord and in the Geirangerfjord area. The deep blue fjord is surrounded by majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, wild waterfalls, and lush vegetation, and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List for good reason. Don't miss the wild islands of Lofoten and Vesterålen.

With their unique stories and local culinary specialities, these destinations will give you with a lovely combination of culture, activities, and tasty dining.

If you are seeking fantastic nature experiences, make sure to visit the activity and ski touring paradise of Lyngenfjord in the north or the Lysefjord and Suldal in the southwest – especially if you like majestic hiking and fjord experiences. The region of Lindesnes in the south can tempt you with the underwater restaurant Under, which you can visit after a trip to the southernmost point of Norway. If you want to relax amidst the peace and quiet of the countryside, you can find tranquillity in the deep forest of Femund Engerdal in Eastern Norway.

Geilo and Trysil are both a paradise for people who like to stay active all year round. Experience some of the country’s most epic ski slopes in the winter. During the summer, the slopes transform into some of the country's best downhill and trail cycling tracks – perfect for the adrenaline-seeking traveller.

The mountains of Norefjell, just 90 minutes from Oslo, are another winter playground for skiers. Here, you can ski from an elevation of 1,188 metres and down towards the frozen lake Krøderen at 130 meters – ideal for both families and daredevils. In the summer and autumn, you can go hiking and biking through scenic landscapes, or relax with a round of golf.
