Norway's Fjords & Fjells

Discover Mountain Grandeur & Native Wildlife in Less-Visited Wild Realms
8 Days
12
From $7995
This Nordic land atop Europe holds more than its share of natural spectacles. Deep fjords penetrate the wall of mountains along Norway’s ragged coast—sapphire inlets flanked by near-vertical peaks. Waterfalls pour in silver ribbons from their summits, joining rivers that course from glaciers into verdant valleys. Seals and whales thrive in the Norwegian Sea while millions of seabirds nest on a maze of islands. Our singular Norway adventure presents a diverse nature sampler on an itinerary designed to elude the most heavily touristed routes. Hear legends of Vikings and trolls as we travel from the Atlantic edge to central Norway’s wild interior, climbing the famous Trollstigen road and following the Rauma River into some of Europe's most daunting mountaineering terrain. Inland, hike forest trails across highland fjells and pursue herds of wild musk ox that roam the tundra.

Trip Highlights

  • Explore Unspoiled HjorundfjordEscape the crowds on a private boat trip up a 'secret' fjord off-limits to big cruise ships, surrounded by the pointed peaks of the Sunnmore Alps
  • Private Wildlife Sea SafariAboard a high-speed Zodiac RIB boat, visit Grasoyane seal colony and Runde Island, where half a million seabirds nest, including puffins in season
  • Search for Wild Musk OxIn the rugged interior of Central Norway, hike over tundra to search for musk ox in Dovrefjell National Park, well off the typical tourist track

Discover Norway...Less Discovered!

Like many beautiful places on our planet, Norway has seen an uptick in tourism in recent years. More travelers are discovering its stunning fjords and peaks, often arriving on ever more (and bigger) cruise ships. That's why we set out to offer you a quieter (though no less spectacular) experience of Norway. Read more about what sets our trip apart:

  1. Travel with Just 12 Guests & TWO Guides
    A small group is key to an intimate experience of nature. Led by two Nat Hab Expedition Leaders, you’ll get exceptional personal attention—and we can divide into even smaller groups for excursions at different physical ability levels.
  2. Explore Less-Traveled Highlights for a More Authentic Experience
    The fact is, coastal Norway has become very popular as a cruise ship destination. In places like Bergen and Geirangerfjord, thousands of visitors pour off giant vessels, and any sense of quiet wonder in nature is quickly vanquished. That's why we've carefully crafted an itinerary that takes you largely away from the most heavily visited spots. Big cruise ships are banned from Hjorundfjord in summer, allowing us to kayak and explore in peace. Few travelers go inland to Dovrefjell National Park, where we search for musk ox. And some of the tallest waterfalls in the world are in a place that very Norway travelers get to—but you will!
  3. Enjoy Distinctive Small Hotels
    From the renowned Hotel Union Oye, which has hosted aristocrats, royalty, artists and adventurers since 1984, to a sophisticated boutique inn on the old Alesund harborfront that harks back to its early 20th-century heritage as a fish-packing warehouse, we enhance your adventure with unique and interesting places to stay.
  4. Safari in Search of Wild Musk Ox
    No other itinerary we know of gets you deep into Dovrefjell National Park in search of the shaggy musk ox, one of the Arctic's oldest and hardiest native creatures. Their fine underbelly fur, called qiviut, is softer than cashmere and much warmer than wool, and garments knitted from it are highly coveted. We hike on foot to find the herd, possibly glimpsing other local wildlife, too, such as reindeer or Arctic fox. 
  5. Top Naturalist Expedition Leaders Enhance Your Knowledge
    With wide-ranging knowledge of Norway’s geology, marine biology, native wildlife and other natural history elements, as well as a grasp of the country's centuries-old Nordic heritage and culture, our Expedition Leaders are tops when it comes to enhancing your appreciation for all you will experience. They also care about your personally, and you'll benefit from their attention to your every need. Read our Expedition Leader bios and traveler comments regarding the quality of our leaders.

    With Natural Habitat Adventures, you get our exclusive guarantee, promising that we will meet the lofty expectations set in our promotional materials. To our knowledge, this is the most impressive guarantee made by any adventure travel company. Read our important promise.
