Boserup Forest

Boserup Forest is a unique area for hiking. The forest and shelters along the coastline of the fjord are lovely playgrounds for children and adults alike. Take some sausages and bread, charcoal and some matches, and you’ll have a nice meal while watching your children playing. It’s possible to sleep in the shelter for one night and there are two campfire places free for use.

Bymarka

Bymarka is so easy to reach, yet it is so beautiful. You can simply leave the hotel, go past the tunnel at the edge of the town, and start climbing the mountain. The terrain is not demanding at all, but it is still very varied and interesting. 3 km later (and 400 m of vertical climb), there are several stunning vistas over the fjord and valley on the top of the hill.

Recommended between April and October

Zipline

The best view in Oslo is right at the top of the ski jumping tower, Holmenkollen. From there, you have a chance to enjoy the same views and sensation of speed as the ski jumpers do! The zipline takes you from the very top of the Holmenkollen jumping tower to the bottom, as if you were jumping on skis. The line itself is 361 metres / 1185 feet long and the difference in altitude is 107 metres / 351 feet. There is no age limit – the oldest jumper is 93 and the youngest only 3! Children under 40 kg may jump in tandem with an adult.

Flåm Railway

The ride from Myrdal down into Flam is only an hour long, yet it’s absolutely thrilling with some of the most amazing landscapes you could have ever seen.

Flor & Fjaere

We rate Flor & Fjaere so high because of our passion for truly unique experiences. A short 20–25 minute boat ride from Stavanger harbour brings you to a beautifully themed summer paradise in the most unlikely spot on the planet, one of the many islands surrounding Stavanger. Five gardeners and a talented cook create a tropical island and a pretty good restaurant.

Around Bergen

For those of you who love outdoor activities, Bergen is a paradise: you can climb the Folgefonna glacier, choose one of the mountain roads, or dive in the fjord, where you can see inhabitants of the depths in their natural environment.

Wildlife

From May to September

Whale Safari Lofoten

Nowhere else along the Norwegian coast does the continental shelf drop off so close to land as at Andenes. At the edge, you can observe a stable feeding stock of male sperm whales if you join the whale-watching tours.

Important: When strong winds or heavy fog appear, the company is forced to change or cancel the trips at short notice. We therefore suggest to consider the safari as a complementary activity and choose days with the best weather conditions.

Runde Island

You can take a round trip to the famous bird cliffs on the island of Runde, where over 500,000 birds nest every year. More than 220 species have been observed here, but the most famous of these are puffins like the one on our logo. The birds can be observed from a boat sailing around the island or from marked paths across the cliffs.
