Some places just care a bit more. About the environment, their unique culture, the local community, and last but not least – your wellbeing. Travel smooth and visit a sustainable destination on your next adventure.

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, and also cares for the locals by ensuring that your environmental footprint stays as low as possible, you should visit the sustainable destinations across Norway. Here, you can get more than a beautiful experience, as you also help preserve local communities and cultural heritage while making the destinations an enjoyable place to live and visit.

Dynamic Variation:

If fantastic nature experiences are what you’re searching for, it will be well worth your time to visit the activity and ski touring paradise of Lyngenfjord in the north or the Lysefjord 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. And if you seek the peace and quiet of the countryside, you can find it in the deep forest of Femund Engerdal in Eastern Norway.
