  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 autumn, the waves are usually at their kindest, which means that this is a great time for beginners. Several hotels offer surf packages with accommodation included.

  2. 2. Steer a dog sledge

    Good experiences are even better when shared, and dog sledging 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 will undoubtedly leave a mark.

    Enjoy the sight of white rock formations, snow-clad forests, and open plains that glide by in slow motion, then spend your evenings in front of a warm fireplace in an intimate mountain lodge.

  3. 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, you can check into approximately 60 lighthouses 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 organized differently from place to place, but they all have a common denominator: They are true to their maritime past, and you are guaranteed an impeccable ocean view.

  4. 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 scenic nature.

    Many spas are located near the sea, high mountains, or long beaches, making them good starting points for nature adventures as well.

  5. 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.
