Norway is a land of huge contrasts with a diverse and breathtaking landscape. This wild and wonderful European country consists mainly of mountains, forests, lakes and rivers. Famous for its fjords, these stunning, most dramatic and most peaceful of landscapes have a very serious 'wow' factor and to see them literally takes your breath away.
Whether exploring by ship, train or road, in winter or summer, our collection of Norway holidays offer you a wealth of opportunities. Travelling by ship provides a comfortable and practical way of exploring the striking and intricate coastline. Consider the world-reknown Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voyages or our popular Great Nordic Odyssey holiday, which operates between January and April so maximising your chance to see the northern lights.
Our summer self-drive holidays in Norway allow you to travel at your own pace, allowing plenty of time to be 'wowed' by view after view. Enjoy a cruise along the spectacular coastline under the midnight sun or travel in comfort on one of Norway's iconic railway journeys as breathtaking scenery rolls past you.
Norway is characterised by its striking fjords - unimaginably deep water trenches where the highest mountains and cliffs literally rise right out of the sea. It stretches from the Skagerrak, the channel which separates Norway from Denmark in the south, past the Arctic Circle all the way northwards to the Barrents Sea and the Russian Border.
But Norway isn't just about the fjords. Impressive glaciers, dense forests, sprawling plains, glorious river valleys and a sprinkling of picture-perfect towns and villages all add to the mix.
There is a wonderfully exhilarating feeling of space wherever you go in Norway. This vast and beautiful country has a population of just 4.8 million, which is around 12 people per square kilometre compared with the UK's 246! Around ten percent of the population live in the capital Oslo, meaning that outside of this and other major towns and cities, when exploring the countryside you can often feel like you are the only people there.
