Planning a tour of Norway? We can help. Start by launching our Tour Finder to compare all Norway tours quickly and easily. You can select your desired date range and select up to three different destinations, and our tour finder will show you the best matches of all three destinations. Norway can be a relatively expensive country to visit if you’re unfamiliar and travelling on your own. That’s why a tour of Norway with a reputable tour operator is highly recommended.
Although Norway shares the same latitude as Alaska and Siberia, the Gulf Stream makes its temperatures much more moderate than you might think. Still, if you’re planning a Norway tour, late June to early August is when the weather is warmest. For a spectacular glimpse of the Northern Lights, book your tour of Norway mid-spring to mid-fall.
Norway is a long, narrow country, bordered by the Norwegian Sea and by Sweden to the east. The capital city, Oslo, is easily explored on foot. Here you can visit one of the many art galleries or museums—including the Viking Ship Museum where you’ll find the world’s two best preserved wooden Viking ships built in the 9th century—enjoy wonderful dining experiences and even take in a show. Informal street cafes are plentiful in Oslo, as well, offering a nice break from your walking tour.
Take some time to explore off the beaten path. Oslo offers easy access to a wide variety of picturesque coastal villages and well-preserved mountain areas. Take a sail through the world-famous Norwegian Fjords to see impressive waterfalls and steep cliffs towering high above. Enjoy majestic scenery when you sail stretches of the fjords along the west coast of Norway, many of which are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
