5 ideas for travelling with friends in Norway

  1. 1. Learn to surf

    Did you know that Norway has several opportunities for a weekend of surfing in places like Lofoten, Jæren and Stavanger? Dive into the ocean and ride the waves - a social, challenging and exciting adventure.

    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.

  3. 2. Steer a dog sled

    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.

  5. 3. Stay in a lighthouse

    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.

  7. 4. Spas with a final touch

    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.

  9. 5. Go on a safari

    Bring a group of friends on an exotic safari. See giant king crabs in Finnmark and whales in Vesterålen or Tromsø, or let yourselves be fascinated by shaggy musk oxen in the Dovrefjell mountains.

    Norway offers many guided safaris, where you can get close to a myriad of unique creatures in their natural habitat whilst learning about the area’s history, flora, and fauna.
