2021 Tour Details View 2022 Tour Details »

You’ve been looking for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen in all the wrong places. Pack your binoculars for Norway’s natural wonders, including its scenic Hardangervidda mountain plateau, home to Northern Europe’s largest stock of reindeer. Of course, this gorgeous expanse of land and its antlered residents aren’t the only gifts Norway bestows upon its guests—extraordinary fjords, serene lakes, gleaming glaciers, and thundering waterfalls are all part of the bow-topped package, and this breathtaking tour of Norway presents the most spectacular ways to see them. Cross the orchard-lined Hardangerfjord by ferry, witness the UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord aboard a relaxing cruise, and savor the spectacular Nordfjord views aboard the Loen Skylift, Norway’s newest aerial tramway. Beginning and ending in Oslo, this encompassing tour of Norway balances the country’s charming, timeless villages with the surprising architecture and energy of its capital city.

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

ANNA LENA SODERLUND

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

I love to bring visitors to areas where I have lived and worked, i.e. Scandinavia, Russia and Central Europe, to give a piece of my culture to the guests, to make the clients feel at home by introducing them to all aspects of life in the area. To open our eyes and understand customs, habits and history, "what makes me tick the way I tick, and you tick differently" is my focus. How to make the best Swedish meatballs, how to sing children's songs or sharing a proverb we use a lot. When we come back home after a tour, we have a different set of 'glasses'. The knowledge of the world has changed us a bit and we are all part of it, plus we had a really great time together!
