Detailed Description

Almost all of Norway is off the beaten track. Even at famous destinations like Geirangerfjord, you will not see many other people. In such vast landscapes, you can always have a private adventure, especially when local guides know how to take you beyond the typical stops. Fjords stretch out pristine and blue, islands await exploration, and arctic waters come alive with the antics of whales and dolphins. You can hike mountains, cross fjords, marvel at glaciers, and spend many hours without seeing another soul.

Handcrafted as the ultimate off-the-beaten-track summer expedition, this luxury 10-day Norway tour will lead you to the fjords and the Arctic Circle. Featuring private tours and specialist guides, this is a journey that will show you the wild in addition to offering you all the necessary comforts that a luxury vacation entails. You can kayak with dolphins as the midnight sun creates phantasmal orange hues, swim in the Arctic Ocean at deserted island bays, and fly in a helicopter to the most remote fjords.

You will begin your tour by flying to Bergen, which is the gateway to the fjords and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although it is a popular destination, you can still venture off the beaten path with two local guides. First, you will explore the Hanseatic legacy before hiking to Mt. Sandviken on day two. Days three and four will be an epic road trip to Fjaerland and Norddal, which will also incorporate Europe’s largest glacier and a winding trail along Geirangerfjord. On day five, you will explore from the air, crossing the fjords to Trondheim with two stops along the way. From here, you will fly to Tromso and the golden light of the Arctic in summer.

In Norway, you can do so much in a day. From Tromso, you will experience kayaking with marine life, and on Senja island, the adventure will continue on land and water. From coastal treks to sampling traditional delicacies, this large island will offer two active days in places without other visitors. By skipping the more touristic Lofoten Islands, you can travel to Andenes, which is a year-round whale-watching destination and a favorite for all nature lovers. From fjords and snowy mountains to serene beaches, the scenery here is incredible. From Andenes, you will fly back to Bergen to meet your outbound flight after ten days in places where few others venture.
