Norway serves up wholesome outdoor fun by the bucket. Explore the fjords by kayak in the morning and, after a picnic lunch, hike up the sides to see them from above.Contact Molly

Why we love Norway
People can spend an awfully long time waiting for the Northern Lights before being rewarded. If you want to heighten your chances, Norway offers you some exceptional advantage. The northern most fjords of Tromso, in our humble opinion, are the best place to be when they light up the sky as the water reflects the colours in all directions.
A road trip is not so much encouraged as it is a necessity to take in this jaw dropping part of the world. The staggering cliffs are remarkable from land but extraordinary from the water. When you can lift your jaw from the floor freedom to roam means there are great hiking trails and fresh water means there are fish to be caught.
You won’t spend too long trawling through a Norwegian travel website before you see an iconic photo of the countries trains. The Flam Railway is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful routes in the world, fortunately it links two beautiful areas meaning your transfers turn into excursions.
Svalbard, one of the most inhospitable parts of the world to live owing to harsh climates and sunlight less winters, falls entirely in the Arctic Circle. It is illegal to look for polar bears and illegal to pick flowers in Svalbard but you can hop on a snowmobile and explore the Arctic landscape this way. Rest assured there is no place in the world like it.

Highlights in Norway
With an abundance of picturesque views you’ll want to picnic at, you want at least a week to really take in the countries highlights. Hop on what the Lonely Planet once referred to as the world’s most beautiful train journey and experience it for yourself before pulling into Bergen and fjord country. Spend your days taking in the likes of UNESCO World Heritage Site Geirangerfjord and the Seven Sisters waterfall. Spend your evenings watching the sunset make the fjords glow pink and feasting on seasonal goodies such as local cheeses, fresh fish and foraged berries.
Holidays around Svalbard
During the summer months in the Arctic Circle, the sun struggles to set. Confusing for your body clock but an amazing way to max out your time to enjoy a destination. It will feel like a permanent sunrise or sunset meaning if you are out on the snow or looking for whales you will be experiencing it at golden hour. Historically Svalbard is a mining land, there is plenty of history here but also plenty of polar bear not to be hunted but to be very wary of!
