From mighty Hardangerfjord to the stylishness of modern Oslo, adventure travel in Norway was designed for luxury getaways. To us, Norway is about contrasts; the cosmopolitan days and primal nights, the stripped-back and the luxurious. You’ll dine at the trendy restaurants of Oslo’s Aker Brygge and fall asleep in the cosy island cabins of faraway Manshausen.

Norway Highlights

Explore nature in its purest form in beautiful Norway, which lays on the western edge of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Offering thousands of years of history and dramatic Fjord lands, Norway boasts an ideal balance between the culturally enriching and thrilling adventure.


Despite the recent popularity of (uncharacteristically morose) Scandi dramas, Norway remains a warm, visually beautiful, and remarkably down-to-earth country. With its myth-made landscapes of monumental fjords, rolling green hills, icy glaciers, and world-leading culture, there’s also more to Norway than meets the eye. Ask us about the best slices Røkt Laks in Bergen (always served on the blackest of bread), or the remotest sea cabins in the far reaches of the Lofoten islands. Europe’s longest country – quite rightly – packs a lot in.


Jutting out into the Norwegian sea, the Lofoten Islands can be found off the north coast of Norway. This archipelago is home to jaw dropping views and reveals Norway’s natural beauty in its wildest form. Hike up Reinebringen Mountain for the most breathtaking perspective over Lofoten and beyond, or paddle through the pristine deep-blue fjords on a sea kayak tour. Nestled away on the islands are idyllic fishing villages where you’ll have an unforgettable stay in Nusfjord and Reine fisherman cabins enjoying rural bliss, or, immerse yourself in a luxury glass cabin on Manshausen Island where you can enjoy the beautiful backdrop while having breakfast in bed.


Explore Norway’s Fjordland along the Steigen coastline where you can weave through undiscovered ski slopes and sail through deep fjords passing towering peaks en route. Get your adrenaline pumping and choose from the array of uncharted mountain peaks to ski down while taking in the breathtaking scenery ahead of the slopes. Settle down for the evening to admire the many hues of Norway’s northern lights as they dance across the midnight sky – you won’t want to miss this natural phenomenon.


Oslo is a hotbed for luxury boutique hotels, exquisite restaurants and cutting-edge architecture. Take our guided tour around the city visiting the modern Opera House, Botanical Garden, Royal Castle and the bronze and granite sculptures in Vigeland Sculpture Park. Finish the day with some fresh cuisine from a range of restaurants or food stalls, then head back to the trendy Thief hotel to get the best night-view of the city from the roof terrace while you enjoy a drink and some live music.


Escape from Norway’s mainland and fly across miles of icy water to the remote Svalbard archipelago. Sitting halfway between Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is one of the most northernmost inhabited areas of the world, so you’re sure to experience a one-of-a-kind Norwegian adventure here. You’ll soon learn the ropes of arctic survival with our expert guides, from polar bear spotting to wilderness camping under the Midnight Sun. Visit amazing nature reserves and national parks, take a boat tour across wintery lakes, explore the deep mountain crevasses and ski your way across Esmark Glacier to the Home of the Trolls at Trollheimen. For a small town there’s lots to get absorbed in here.


Disappear from the crowds to one of Europe’s most remote and romantic landscapes. A honeymoon spent under the northern lights in the evening and luxury, private tours of Norway’s fjords by day, watching Orca pods chase fish across the surface and sea eagles sore above you. If you’re looking for the unusual and the epic to celebrate your loved one, then a bespoke honeymoon package to Norway won’t leave you, or them, disappointed.


Whether you wish to explore Norway’s dramatic landscapes or impressive architecture, embark on exciting arctic adventures, or find the best spot to watch the northern lights, our perfectly curated private tours will be sure to take you there, whilst uncovering hidden gems along the way. Look no further for luxury tours of Norway’s fjords, glaciers and snow-capped mountains, cultural hotspots and the country’s most photogenic destinations.

Norway hosts a plethora of luxury hotels, whether it’s in a glass-clad cabin on the private island of Manshausen, a renovated fisherman’s lodge on the Lofoten Islands or a boutique hotel in the vibrant capital of Oslo; this country can accommodate any type of vacation. From luxury honeymoons to family getaways, you’re never far from somewhere housing some stylish décor, private balconies, fresh local produce and breathtaking views.


Perfectly located for art, culture and cuisine, The Thief promises to ‘steal you away from everyday life’. Every room is full of gadgets, plush bedding, hand-picked contemporary art and best of all a private balcony. You can unwind in the spa after a day of exploring the city, feast in the restaurant and then head up to the rooftop bar for the best views of the city at night while enjoying some unplugged live music. The Thief loves uncovering raw talent and staying up to date with the work of contemporary artists, so monthly exhibitions take place here showcasing various art, photography and poetry, often featuring artist talks and performances. The Thief has indeed thought of everything.


An area rich in history and wildlife, the fishing village of Reine is one of our favorite places on the islands to fully appreciate the beautiful Lofoten landscape. Make yourself at home in a renovated fisherman’s cabin with picture-perfect backdrops and impressive fjords right on your doorstep. In the day, kayak, hike and explore the village, and by night, relax in the comfort of your warm lodge while you watch the world-famous northern lights illuminate the sky above.


The private 55-acre island of Manshausen hosts seven luxurious glass sea cabins looking out over the water below, each equipped with two bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and the most breathtaking views of the uncharted mountains, azure fjords and panoramic sky. The island is owned by Borge Ousland, a record breaking polar explorer, so when it comes to fishing, swimming, rock-climbing, hiking and sailing there’s nowhere better equipped. This, along with the award winning local produce served at the main house, makes Manshausen undoubtedly one of the world’s most unique private islands you can stay on.


Tucked away up on a hillside on the west coast lies the Storfjord Hotel. This boutique hotel offers a range of spacious rooms and luxurious suites with private balconies overlooking the Sunmore Alps and Storfjord. Renowned for its exclusive and locally brewed Storfjordbrygg ale, and collection of locally produced cheese a visit to the hotel’s restaurant is not to be missed. Spend some time relaxing in the spa down the forest path or if you’re after more of an adventure, explore the fjordland and wildlife with a private tour.
