Luxury Holidays in Norway

Home to the mesmerising Northern Lights and great cavernous fjords, Norway - the fabled land of the Vikings - is an inimitable winter world of adventure, wildlife, and jaw-dropping primordial landscapes. Lightfoot Travel has handcrafted a range of luxury tours for you to experience and we’ll tailor you a customised itinerary so that your holiday perfectly suits your needs.

For adventurists, there is a plethora of activities that’ll get your heart pumping while simultaneously allowing you to take in Norway’s beautiful sights. Take your pick from rock climbing to river rafting, glacier walks to caving, skiing to dogsledding. If you’re looking for culture, explore the Scandinavian-cool modern architecture of Oslo, with its award-winning restaurants and cutting-edge museums.

Experiences come thick and fast in Norway, from the Aurora Borealis in the Arctic Circle, to Bergen’s folky UNESCO-listed Bryggen docks as well as the magnificent Western Fjords, a dramatic landscape created by a succession of ice ages. Take the opportunity to enjoy a scenic train journey through jagged mountains and gorges, stay in the charming Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel, and drive along the Atlantic Road—one of the world’s best ocean drives.

Wildlife in Norway is big business, too. Here you can watch whales – humpback, sperm and orca, depending on the season – off Andenes, Stø or Tromsø. Seek out wild reindeer atop Hardangervidda, search for prehistoric musk oxen, elk, or Arctic foxes, go birdwatching, or head to Norway's high Arctic, in Svalbard, where you’ll hit the jackpot with polar bears and walruses.
