What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Make the most of your trip to Norway

Similar in size to California, but with only 5 million people, Norway has plenty of open space to explore. Its unique fjords, mountains, and picturesque villages give this outdoor adventure paradise a unique character. 

When is the best time to visit?
Norway's latitude, with part of the country located north of the Arctic circle, creates pronounced seasonal differences. Hike and cycle the Scandinavian landscapes, and experience the Midnight Sun during summer; Go dog sledding, skiing, snowmobiling, and see the Northern Lights in winter.  More details

Where to go in Norway?
The go-to destinations for many travelers are the world famous fjords at Aurland, Jotunheimen National Park, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, and the scenic Lofoten Islands. A cultural must see is the city of Oslo with its many museums and rich history, and there are plenty of ways to experience Norway off-the-beaten-path.

How many days do I need?
Some visitors breeze through Norway in 3 days, and while you can quickly tour the country and get a feel for its natural scenery, we recommend to plan a week or more to really take in all that it has to offer.

Norway Travel Insights

Stunning Geirangerfjord

When Is The Best Time of Year To Visit Norway?

Despite its northerly location, Norway is an amazing destination any time of year. Summer months bring the endless daylight of the Midnight Sun as well as warmer temperatures, making June-August the busiest season. However, winter time (Oct - Mar) is equally stunning offering the opportunity to view the Northern Lights. And for those looking to avoid other tourists, spring and fall are by far the quietest months with a more temperate climate.

Getting Off-the-Beaten-Path in Norway

Looking to get off-the-beaten-path in Norway? Here are a number of great ways to experience Norway like a local, from lesser-known coastal regions to scenic train routes to local festivals that celebrate Norway's history and culture.

Prekestolen Rock, Lysefjord

Norway's Best Natural Highlights

Norway, meaning "the way leading to the north", is so long that if you spin it around on the map you would end up in Rome. Similar in size to California and with a population of only 5 million people, this Nordic country has plenty of open space to explore. Its stunning fjords, mountains and natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun make Norway a must-visit destination. Get inspired for your next journey by these must-see natural highlights and destinations in Norway.

Trip Reviews for Norway

The latest reviews by travelers who booked their trip on kimkim

Winter magic | fjords of norway, hurtigruten & tromsø, Norway - Dec 28 - Jan 10, 2018

Traveler: Mary E. - Local specialist: Linda Veråsdal

KimKim and Linda are the way to go! We got the trip that we wanted, with expert advice along the way. For me the Fiords were absolutely enchanting, I could have lost myself in them. For Paul, the whales were the highlight.

We did not get to see the Northern Lights so we already figure another trip to Tromso. Besides it being magic, I got my hair cut there and love it!

Thank you

December break norway, Norway - Dec 29 - Jan 3, 2018

Traveler: Laurie J. - Local specialist: Linda Veråsdal

We had the most amazing time in Norway. Linda went above and beyond for us and customized the perfect trip for my husband and I and our two young sons (1 & 2). It is probably the best vacation we've ever had. Thank you, Linda!

Norway, Norway - Dec 15 - Dec 20, 2017

Traveler: mary T. - Local specialist: Ingrid Thornes

Fantastic trip- we loved the reindeer sledding and Sami experience which we wouldn’t have thought of. Northern lights chasing was great, although small hitch when the bus would not start. Dog sledding camp and the lavoo were great, but there was confusion about whether or not we were driving or riding. We would also have liked to have more time dog sledding, as we were only out for about an hour. All of the providers were professional with small groups and great guides. We really liked the hotel, which had great free breakfast and was in a convenient location.
