Norway’s greatest allure is its sense of space. Mountains dominate the landscape, and there are thousands of trails to try, including many that are ideal for children. Fjords stretch through the west of the country, which are epic features that can showcase nature’s scale. Even the cities are spacious, with large pedestrianized areas and entirely natural surroundings. This is a country that can feel like a family playground, and it will be yours to explore on this expertly crafted ten-day itinerary. From Oslo to Bergen, you will be immersed in the local culture, exceptional nature, and a family atmosphere that only Norway can offer.
You will kick off your family getaway with three nights in Oslo, which is a vibrant capital that has large pedestrianized areas and nothing too stressful. During your time here, you will be cruising on a fjord, visiting different children’s attractions, and learning all about the Vikings. Three days means time to relax and also means that you can see the best of what Oslo can offer. A short domestic flight will fly you to Kristiansand on day four, where Norway’s largest family amusement park will fill most of your day. Afterward, you can enjoy the beauty of the wilderness on a guided transfer to Stavanger, which is the capital of Norway’s Southwest. The Norwegian Children’s Museum is just one attraction here, and you will connect with local history and enjoy breathtaking views of your surroundings.
After two nights in Stavanger, you will fly to the fjords to Bergen during a private helicopter adventure that includes touching down beside a remote fjord and embracing the power of Norwegian nature. Bergen is surrounded by seven mountains and seven fjords, making it a wonderful setting for leading your family into the outdoors and finding a place to connect with each other. A family cruise will also be included, and your final day can be tailored to how you feel near the end of your vacation.
You can expect to stay in stunning family accommodations throughout your vacation that will be complete with interconnecting rooms and warming amenities. Local guides will lead each excursion, and most of your activities are private, so they can be adjusted to your mood and energy. This ten-day itinerary is best in spring and summer because the weather is best, and long days allow for a more adjustable program. The route can be adapted for a fall or winter family vacation with inclusions that offer experiences in the snow and searching for the northern lights.
