Norway is a land of intense natural beauty which is hard to overstate, especially in winter, its signature season. Mountains of dizzying heights, deep fjords carved out by ice age glaciers, waterfalls cascading down mountainsides, and the awe-inspiring Northern Lights. Spectacular architecture, quaint, affluent cities 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 Norway in Winter adventure will awake the explorer in you. We'll journey from the sophisticated capital city of Oslo to the tiny Kirkenes in the extreme Arctic wilderness, then follow the West Coast among the world's most beautiful islands and fjords to end the adventure in the historic Old World Bergen. With its stirring and varied landscapes, the Norwegian coast is one of the most exciting and varied adventure destinations in the world, and we will explore this rugged coastline, coming face-to-face with natural wonders of epic proportions and enjoying the local culture and the everyday life of people who live here.

We'll spend 2 days in Oslo, staying at an upscale hotel in the heart of Norway's sophisticated capital, and visiting its cultural highlights: the National Gallery of Norway, the Vigeland Sculpture Park and the Viking Ship Museum. Then, we'll fly to Kirkenes, in the extreme Arctic and spend a night at Snowhotel which in itself is an experience of a lifetime. In Kirkenes, we'll board a Hurtigruten Expedition Ship, and travel for 6 days along the West Coast of Norway until we reach the old Hanseatic League town of Bergen, staying for another 2 days. From here, we'll venture out to experience Norway in a Nutshell, the iconic train 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.

I had high expectations for Norway – a long-held wish- and it was even more wonderful than I had hoped! Seeing the fjords was magical! Beautiful landscapes, fun staff onboard the ship, interesting cities and museums. I learned a lot and would go back! – Diane from Iowa

The tour was well planned and executed. Hotels had great locations! – Gail from Florida

Of my three S&S tours, this was my favorite. I absolutely LOVED Norway. And I loved being on the ship, not having to pack and unpack, and yet fantastic new views every day. – Karen from New Hampshire

I thought the tour was a great experience. Norway was incredible, amazingly beautiful. – Sarah from Vermont

The tour was great – loved the Snow Hotel, the city tours, my fellow sister-travelers, nighttime dogsledding, snowmobiling, and horseback riding. Anne was always excited to be with us and take group photos and offer options and advice. - Risa from New Jersey

The February Norway tour was another amazing adventure. We saw Northern Lights, experienced dog sledding and riding Icelandic horses along the beach. The Fjords were magnificent and the scenery along the coast was beautiful. I am so glad I took this winter vacation with Sights and Soul, and Anne was a great tour leader! – Suzanne from Virginia
