Discover what makes Norway a country-sized playground with fun for all the family on this 11-day adventure through its fjords. This region is, quite simply, one of the most dramatic destinations in the world – think rolling hills blanketed in lush vegetation, cliffs leading to shimmering water and colourful wooden houses. There’s no end to the outdoor adventure either, with enough hiking trails, kayak trips and viewpoints to last a lifetime (or 11 days, in this case).

Kick off your holiday in Oslo, the country’s capital, and roam around its striking architecture with the handy Oslo Pass. After two nights, collect your hire car and cruise along the scenic roads to Geilo, a town in southern Norway.
The Langedrag Nature Park is a short drive away, and a visit here will see you petting and swooning over cutesy creatures. Head to Ulvik, where a kayak tour through the fjords will immerse you in the heart of Norway’s nature. Finish your adventure in Bergen, Norway’s second-largest city, and enjoy a trip to the top of Mount Fløyen via the Fløibanen funicular.


Everything is 100% tailored to you

The journey to Oslo begins

Rally the troops, because your Norwegian adventure begins this morning. Head to the airport, whizz through security and kick back in the airport lounge before boarding the two-hour flight to Oslo. If the window views aren’t enough to keep the youngsters entertained, check out our family packs – filled with tailored destination information and games, they’re sure to pique their curiosity about Norway. After landing, transfer to your centrally located hotel where you’ll spend the next two nights. Settle rumbling bellies with a meal at the hotel, or ask your local Concierge to secure seats for the whole family at one of Oslo’s many delightful dining spots.


Make the most of the Oslo Pass

Rise bright and early (if the children allow it) and tuck into your first Norwegian breakfast – a light spread of coffee, scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and freshly baked bread rolls. Once officially fuelled for the day, head out and make the most of your Oslo Pass. Giving you free access to more than 30 museums and tourist sites, use of public transport, ferry rides to the islands in the Oslo fjord and discounts at restaurants, there’s no better way to discover Oslo’s blend of nature and city life.

We also recommend visiting the Norsk Folkemuseum, an open-air museum that depicts how people lived in Norway from the 1500s to the present day. Summer activities include folk dances and music, arts and crafts, meeting farm animals, horse-drawn carriage rides, playgrounds and old-fashioned grocery stores – in short, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.


Drive from Oslo to Geilo

Get ready to hit the road as you collect your rental car and begin the drive to Geilo. Around 135 miles from Oslo, we recommend winding through the mountains and stopping off in towns like Flesberg, Rollag, Nore and Uvdal. There’s plenty to explore, and it’ll give you all a chance to stretch your legs (and end back-seat quarrels). The end of today’s drive passes through Hallingdal, a valley shaped like a big smile across south-east Norway. After arriving in Geilo, a National Park mountain village, settle into your family room and rest ready for tomorrow’s action-packed day.


Animal fun in Langedrag Nature Park

Animal lovers will have the time of their lives during today’s trip to Langedrag Nature Park, a farm with over 250 animals across 25 species. Nestled in an area of breath-taking beauty, overlooking the mountains and fjords of Numedal and Hallingdal, the farm is open year-round and will entertain no matter your age: think petting animals, encountering wild species in the park, horse riding, scenic hikes and even feeding wolves, arctic foxes and reindeer. After a fun day with new furry friends, head back to Geilo for an evening debating which animals were your favourite.


Outdoor adventure in Geilo

Spend your second day in Geilo getting stuck into the summer activities on offer. Geilo Summer Park is a playground for the whole family, so put your balancing skills to the test at the climbing park or hop on a bike and speed along the downhill track. For guaranteed thrills, head to the 3,600ft-long zipline and whizz through the treetops as you soar past views of Ustedalen, Hallingskarvet and Hallingdal.

Come evening, we recommend checking out Bowl & Dine, an American-style diner that combines juicy homemade burgers with six bowling alleys. The lively atmosphere will spark healthy competition as you battle for the title of bowling champion before feasting on a hard-earned meal.


Onwards to Ulvik

Buckle up ready for today’s journey, a leisurely 80 miles (a two-hour drive) from Geilo to Ulkvik. The trip takes you through a mountainous landscape peppered with lakes and blanketed with meadows, until you reach the shores of the Hardangerfjord and your final destination: Ulvik. With less than 2,000 inhabitants, this small town has a relaxed atmosphere that complements the Hardangerjord’s beaches and waters. Your hotel acts as the perfect base to discover these landscapes, so settle in, freshen up and head out to soak in the impressive feats of nature.


Kayak in the fjords

Dive into the heart of Ulvik’s action with a private kayak adventure in the fjords. Brush up on your survival skills as you paddle out to an island and learn how to make a fire, identify edible plants and set up a makeshift shelter. Continue paddling across the aqua-blue waters and listen as your guide tells you stories of the region, bringing to life the mesmerising surroundings. Round the day off with a locally sourced meal at your hotel, where you can dine on the pier and continue to admire the fjords.


Hiking in Ulvik

One of Ulvik’s biggest draws is its abundance of hiking trails – from tricky mountain hikes to leisurely forest strolls, there’s something for all abilities. So today, lace up your walking boots and pick your path. Wherever you decide to walk, Norway’s wonderful wildlife will be waiting at every twist and turn. Remember to bring a bag to collect raspberries, blueberries and blackberries along the way (and challenge the family not to gobble them up before the end of the hike).


Ulvik to Bergen

Set your satnavs for Bergen and begin today’s two-hour drive to this colourful city on Norway’s southwestern coast. Once the country’s capital, Bergen knows how to impress with its wooden buildings, craggy mountains, historic neighbourhoods and clusters of museums. Your hotel is in the city’s heart, so dump your bags and head into the nearby lively streets for an afternoon of curious exploring.

DAY 10

Ride the Fløibanen funicular

When in Bergen, it would be criminal to miss out on a ride in the Fløibanen, a funicular railway that takes passengers from the city centre to the top of Mount Fløyen. Luckily, we've secured the whole family tickets to traverse the mountain and admire the unrivalled bird’s-eye views during the speedy eight-minute journey. When you’ve reached the top, you’ll find yourself on a viewing platform surrounded by panoramic views of the city, harbours, fjords and the North Sea. There’s also a shop selling irresistible souvenirs and a cafe serving freshly baked pastries. If you fancy venturing further, you’ll find Mount Fløyen is home to leisurely walks, a large playground and the mysterious Troll Forest. You can either follow one of these trails to the mountain base or hop back on the Fløibanen for a leisurely ride back down.

DAY 11

Fly back to the UK

Your final morning in Norway has sadly rolled around, so pack your bags one last time, say goodbye to your trusty set of wheels and head to the airport in time for your early evening flight. The journey back to the UK is a speedy two hours, the perfect amount of time to plug into our specially curated Norway playlist and reminisce over the last 11 days.

A la carte


Ulvik Fjord is a little piece of paradise, far from the crowds, that can be easily explored in a kayak. Take the opportunity to become more familiar with local customs and understand the connections between the inhabitants of the fjords and their natural environment on a daily basis. Along the way, moor your kayak on the shore of a small island in the fjord for an introduction to basic survival techniques, including how to make a fire, recognising edible plants or how to build a shelter in the wild.
