beyond the beaten path
Impossible to compare with any other place on Earth, Norway (whose name means "the way north") offers natural spectacles of unique intensity and almost ultra-terrestrial beauty. Far above the Arctic Circle, Northern Norway and the Lofoten islands are known for excellent fishing, Sámi culture and the spectacular natural phenomena of the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. The county of Møre and Romsdal is our favorite region to marvel at the fjords, with its spectacular and rugged landscape of off-shore islands, towering snow-capped mountains and the highest single-drop rock face in Europe, the magnificent Trollwall. Adventure opportunities are limitless, including superb biking, hiking, mountaineering and skiing on land and world-class sea kayaking, sailing, fishing and RIB adventures off-shore. The Svalbard Archipelago is an arctic dream - a remote wilderness of snow-covered peaks, vast glaciers, rocky island outposts and pack ice that is home to 2,500 people and 3,000 polar bears. At 78° it's Europe’s arctic frontier, the last stop before the North Pole. Each winter experience feels like a mini-expedition, as we explore by dog-sled and snowmobile. Dark winter nights and northern latitudes create ideal conditions for spectacular Aurora Borealis displays. As Spring approaches, days lengthen and temperatures rise, allowing to cruise the archipelago’s outer edges, photograph stunning marine wildlife from zodiacs and ski-tour the remote backcountry and coastal peaks. Literally, you could spend a whole year in Norway and barely scratch the surface of its natural wonders.
