  • Why we love Norway - Arctic

    • In Douglas Adams’ beloved series, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, there’s a character who designs planets and won an award for creating Earth’s fjords of Norway. That the majesty of these fjords was immortalised in one of the world’s most popular series is testament to their beauty.
    • The Akershus Fortress has survived every seige that it has come up against since the first in 1308. Most of the seiges came from Swedish forces. The fortress was surrendered to the German Nazi's in 1940 (until it was liberated again 1945), but has never actually been captured by a foreign enemy. It is said that whomeever controls Akershus, controls Norway.
    • The Flåm Railway is a feat of engineering genius that climbs to 2,838 feet in less than an hour. In Flåm, you can cruise along the Aurlands and Nærøy Fjords. These are both branches of the Sogn Fjord, which is bothe the longest and deepest in the world.
    • Jostedal Glacier is the largest glacier in Europe. At Briksdal Glacier you can enjoy a cable car trip with breathtaking views. The Geiranger Fjord is reputed to be the most beautiful of all of the Norwegian Fjords.

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.
