Breathtaking fjords, cute little towns, the marvel of the northern lights: Norway is the perfect destination for a fresh, fun outdoor holiday.
Setting up camp or basing yourself at a lodge or cottage at an open-air resort in the eastern region is a good choice for families, sports enthusiasts and art lovers. Oslo is a capital city with plenty of activities, museums, restaurants and good food, while the pretty coastal towns lend themselves to healthy living and summer relaxation. Children of all ages will love the Viking trail, where they can explore a Viking ship. And families with older kids will enjoy mountain biking, rafting, canyoning, trekking and climbing in national parks, or skiing in winter.
Alternatively, a trip taking in several campsites in the vast North would make a great adventure. Depending on the season, you can admire the midnight sun or the northern lights, climb mountains or ski and dog sled. You’ll also discover the fascinating culture of the indigenous Sami people, learning about their traditions and tasting their unique fish and reindeer dishes. Explore the fjords, going kayaking and whale-watching, visit the city of Tromsø and the picturesque fishing villages on the Lofoten Islands. Make a game of finding remote lighthouses and - above all - reconnect with the most authentic and unspoilt nature.
