Spa and wellness, unique hotels and fun-packed activities. Why not consider Norway the next time you’re planning a trip with your friends? Jump on a train, or embark on a road trip and let the journey be an experience in itself. We've compiled five tips for fun and different activities in Norway, well suited for a trip with friends.
During summer and early fall, the waves are usually at their kindest, making this a great time for beginners. Several hotels offer surf packages with accommodations included.
Good experiences are even better when shared, and dog sledding is no exception. Embark on a journey through the beautiful winter wilderness with a team of eager dogs as your engine - an adventure that offers great nature experiences and fast-paced fun, which undoubtedly will leave a mark.
Enjoy the sight of white rock formations, snow clad forests and open plains glide by in slow motion, and spend your evenings in front of a warm fireplace in an intimate mountain lodge.
Sometimes the housing is an experience in itself, so why rent a cabin when you can stay in a lighthouse? In Norway, there are more than 80 listed lighthouses, and in many of them you can "check in" for a night out of the ordinary. Go to bed to the sound of waves crashing against the shore, and wake up to the sight of an archipelago bathing in weather - sun, wind, fog or rain, or everything at once.
Experience living in a lighthouse for yourself. Lighthouse accommodations are organised differently from place to place, but they all have a common denominator: They are all true to their maritime past, and you are guaranteed an impeccable ocean view.
Recent years, Norwegian hotels have lifted the spa experience into something more than just body scrubs and jacuzzis. Indulge in treatments and massages in fashionable interior surroundings, eat delicious food and enjoy the scenic nature.
Many spas are located near the sea, high mountains or long beaches, making them good starting points for nature adventures as well.
Planning your trip well helps you get what you want and find the experiences you wish for, without risking your hard-earned days off. And if you don't know what you want, we're happy to help you find some ideas.
