We’re full of surprises!

Crave an island escape with pristine beaches? We’ve got you. Into design and architecture? Try a boutique hotel stay in an Art Nouveau mecca. Looking to get way off the grid? Hole up in a cliffside lighthouse for a few day with your loved ones or soak in the silence and beauty of a mountain hike. While you’re at it, savor our seafood, trawl for unique keepsakes or go native and share an ale with a local Viking.

And those iconic fjords?

They’re still here in all their storied glory. Marvel at the mighty waterfalls and cliffs of well-trod Geirangerfjord and Sognefjord to your heart’s content. But how about a more intimate encounter off the beaten tourist path? Kayak the still waters of, say, a smaller fjord — for quieter close-up encounters with wildlife and wilderness.

Interested in culture?

Fjord Norway has a rich cultural history, and along the coast and fjords there are many cultural treasures. In Fjord Norway, culture and traditions plays an important role, and even though people might seem a bit inaccessible and rough, it's easy to feel at home and welcome here. Order a "svele" flatbread at the local café - maybe you'll meet a few locals.
