What travelers say about kimkim

Reviews from kimkim travelers who recently returned from their adventures

Introducing 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.

7 days | dogsledding in alta | bergen - flåm - oslo , Norway - Mar 26 - Apr 1, 2018

Traveler: Cyndi P. - Local specialist: Ingrid Thornes

Alta was my favorite part of the trip, especially dog sledding!! The hotel we stayed at in Alta was great and had an amazing breakfast buffet. The tours we took were a lot of fun and allowed us to view as much of Norway as possible in the small amount of time we had. We did two dog sledding trips, went ice fishing/snow shoeing, RIB boat on the Fjords in Flam, and more. Ingrid did a great job listening to what we wanted to do and helped plan a trip that was really memorable. I can't wait to visit Norway again!!
