Norway undoubtedly is one of the most beautiful countries on earth. Spectacular fjords, blue glaciers, polar bears of the Arctic, stunning mountains, rich wildlife, fresh air and of course, northern lights, make Norway one of the best destinations for summer or winter vacation.
The outdoors is an inseparable part of Norwegian culture and tourism is huge all year long. There are lots of activities here for everyone, no matter what age or physical shape.
Summers here are warm. Even in the north, summer temperatures are pleasant, reaching 25°C or more.
In June and July, summer nights are bright enough – even at midnight – to take pictures without using a flash.
In July and August water temperatures in the sea can reach 18°C and higher, making swimming enjoyable.
Blueberries are common in Norwegian forests and mountains. In July and August, you can try locally grown strawberries and cherries.
A typical summer dish is freshly caught mackerel, with sour cream, fresh potatoes and cucumber salad or cured pork or mutton, served with sour cream and flatbread.
Nordic Saga Tours offers a variety of summer Norwegian escorted tours, coastal cruises, independent as well as biking and hiking tours.
Norway winter vacations can be as impressive as the ones in summer and in some aspects even magical.
In winter, much of Norway is transformed into a snow paradise with typical winter activities: skiing, dogsledding, ice fishing, chasing Northern Lights and many more.
Winter in Norway is becoming more and more popular with tourists from all over the world.
Norway winter nights are long and dark and, therefore, the northern lights often appear and colour up the white landscape. October, February and March are the best months for seeing the magical light shows.
In wintertime, you can enjoy the best seafood ever. The quality and flavour is at its highest then. Fresh fish is also best in winter.
Nordic Saga Tours offers you the best winter tours including Norwegian coastal cruises, Fjord tours, Northern Lights cruises and tours, rail tours through spectacular winter scenery and many more.
