The Best of the In-A-Nutshell Tours of the Norwegian Fjords

December 2, 2021

Tours of the Norwegian Fjords

The fjords are a must-see attraction for anyone traveling to Norway. But with at least 1,700 of these named deep-water sea inlets to choose between, it can be difficult for travelers to know where to spend their time. If this is the case, our guide to the Norwegian Fjords for Travelers should be especially useful.

Although the fjords stretch right along Norway’s coastline for 100,000 kilometer (60,000 mile), many of the most attractivecan be found in the country’s south and central areas. It’s therefore incredible easy for visitors to the country to absorb their wonder on tours from Norway’s largest cities: Oslo and Bergen. (more…)

INTRODUCTION – What Can I Do on a Glacier?

To most people, the idea of walking on a glacier is pretty exotic and seemingly out of reach. Seeing the inside of a glacier may even sound impossible… but it isn’t, fortunately! If you know how to get to a glacier and how to safely explore it, the adventure becomes accessible and realizable. That is what I intend on doing here: to cut through all the confusing information out there and give you just what you need: 1) a list of a few highly accessible glaciers; 2) information on how to get to them, and 3) how to best explore them. Specifically, I will be discussing glaciers in Iceland and Norway, since the glacier tourism infrastructure in those countries is quite developed. (more…)

INTRODUCTION – Vacationing at the Top of the World

Marcelo’s first visit to Lapland – Modern explorers in action!

Lapland is an adventure.

I am not talking about dangling from a cliff, jumping from an airplane or searching long-lost treasures in some subterranean metropolis of millennia ago. By “adventure” I mean: inherently and delightfully unique experiences. Regardless of where you come from, when you travel to Lapland you will feel like you are in a place different from all other places. Cliché ahead… but there is a certain magic to it, especially in the winter time.

You have heard about it, you have wanted to explore it, but you have questions. This is my humble attempt to address them. My focus on this document will be on winter Lapland vacations, but I am sure that other seasons will be covered in future articles. Let’s get to your questions, shall we? (more…)

Be a Norwegian for 10 Days

I am fascinated by Norway.Marcelo owner

To me, traveling in that country is somewhat similar to listening to songs by my favorite band, The Beatles: no matter how many times I experience it, there is always something new and fresh to be enjoyed. Something new to admire.

The scenery is jaw-dropping gorgeous, the culture is rich, the food is exquisite and the people are warm and exceptionally friendly. It was during one of my visits, just a couple of years ago, that it occurred to me that I had to create a way for my clients to enjoy Norway beyond the highlights.
