Explore the dramatic fjords of Northern Norway
Scattered across the rough waters of the Norwegian Sea, far above the Arctic Circle, the Norwegian Fjords and Lofoten Islands are some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes on Earth, with the deserved reputation of being the ultimate adventure playground.
When to go: May – September
- Take a helicopter to experience glacier kayaking. You’ll have lunch on the ice, with stunning views in every direction before heading out climbing in the afternoon. Descend the mountain via helicopter once again, or for the more intrepid, opt for mountain bikes or a paraglide.
- Head out in the tenders with a specialised naturalist to lie in wait for sea eagles. Watch them as they dive into the water for their prey and learn about this protected bird.
- Visit at home with a renowned Polar Explorer before trekking and learning about his exploits in the Arctic.
- Jump back into a helicopter into the wilds to a luxury mountain lodge – here you’ll encounter habituated wolves; coming face-to-face with them for a truly unforgettable experience.
- Climb and feel like you are flying as you leap between high altitude rock formations, under the watchful eye of your guides and instructors.
- Experience incredible wreck diving, including the 1958 ship wreck M/S Hadsel, which lies on the seabed 45 metres down. You will visit some of the best surf spots, where a local expert will teach you the art of surfing in the Arctic Circle.
- Dive for king crabs in the cold waters of the Norwegian Sea, with your catch cooked and prepared by your chef.
