Norway is a land of intense natural beauty which is hard to overstate. Mountains of dizzying heights, deep fjords carved out by ice age glaciers, waterfalls cascading down mountainsides, and the awe-inspiring Midnight Sun in summer and Northern Lights in winter. The spectacular architecture, affluent cities, rich Sami culture and exciting local cuisine enhance the experience further. Norway’s natural wonders, dramatic and diverse, range from serene forest-covered hills in the southeast, spectacular fjords and glaciers in the west, and the Arctic wilderness in the north. The seals and eagles reign, the whales and fish patrol the deep fjords, and small villages sleep along the sides of each fjord.

The Summer Norway adventure will awake the explorer in you. We'll journey from the sophisticated capital city of Oslo to visit the Viking-founded Trondheim to get an insight into Norway's historical roots, then we'll settle in the Hanseatic League' city of Bergen on the country's otherworldly western coast, carved by fjords and glaciers. With its stirring and varied landscapes, Norway is one of the most exciting and varied nature destinations in the world, and we will explore this rugged country, coming face-to-face with natural wonders of epic proportions and enjoying the local culture and the everyday lives of people who live here.

We'll start with 5 days in Oslo, staying at an upscale hotel in the heart of Norway's sophisticated capital, and visiting its cultural highlights: the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Norwegian Folk Museum, the Oslo Opera House, the Nobel Peace Center and the Fram Museum. We'll take a trip to Trondheim to explore this intimate and historically important city. We'll spend the last 4 days of our Norwegian adventure in the old Hanseatic League town of Bergen, venturing out to experience Norway in a Nutshell, the iconic train and boat journey that traverses the hauntingly beautiful Norwegian landscapes of the magnificent fjords, idyllic rural vistas, taking the spectacular Flam Mountain Railway and cruising on the Aurlandsfjord and the narrow Nærøyfjord. We'll also visit Edvard Grieg's summer villa to attend a piano concert of his music and take a fjord cruise to Barony of Rosendal, the smallest castle in Norway.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
