Hey, my name is Julia. I am originally from Germany.
After I took my semester abroad in Norway during my Bachelor, I decided I wanted to live in this beautiful country. Now, working in travel, learning more about this beautiful country I live in, and meeting new people makes every day exciting and special for me.
How did you get involved in travel?
"I love to travel myself! Seeing the diversity of the world, getting to know new cultures and meeting new people is one of my passions. I always wanted to work with something I love to do myself. By helping travelers to get the best experience possible, showing the beautiful spots Norway has to offer and spreading the joy of traveling, I am able to combine my job with my passion for travel, culture, and people."
Featured trips & expertise
Skip the crowds and explore Norway at its best with this varied 9-day winter itinerary. Start in the trendy capital of Oslo, where you'll hop on a steep, scenic train to reach the snow-covered mountains and fjords of Flåm. Spend three nights in the colorful, UNESCO-listed waterfront city of Bergen before flying north to end your journey in Tromsø—where you'll search for the northern lights and dogsled through pristine Arctic wilderness.
Prepare to discover Oslo and Bergen's charm and culture as you explore the city by public transport during a local-led tour in both cities. You'll travel by train from Oslo to Bergen, with a stop in Flåm, on one of the world's steepest and most beautiful journeys that winds past lush fjord landscapes, gushing waterfalls, and steep, snow-capped mountains. In Flåm, you'll go on a fjord cruise past some of the highest peaks in the region—before heading to Bergen where you'll discover the city's magical layout and history during a local tour—as well as go on a second fjord cruise past Mostraumen and finally to Modalen.
Discover lively cities and breathtaking scenery on this short 5-day journey through southern Norway. Start on the coast, where you’ll spend two nights exploring the cobbled streets and colorful waterfront districts of historic Bergen. Day three takes you deep into the fjords, where you’ll sail through the spectacular Sognefjord before hopping on the famous Flåm Railway for a steep, scenic ride through mountains and waterfalls. End your adventure in Oslo to celebrate the vibrant culture and cuisine of Europe’s fastest-growing city.
This stunning adventure travels to the heart of the Sunnmøre region in northwestern Norway. Start in up-and-coming Oslo and check out this exciting capital before boarding a train that runs along the emerald-green Rauma River. From Åndalsnes, begin the ultimate road trip through mountains, fishing villages, cities, and dramatic fjords with a slew of outdoor activities and national scenic routes, not to mention 11 hairpin turns on the 'Troll's Ladder'.
With 12 days in Norway, travelers can mix and match multiple major cities and regions. Activity options will depend largely on the season: In summer you can explore verdant mountains and dramatic fjords with various scenic modes of transport (rental car, fjordcruise, and train), while winter visitors can cruise above the Arctic Circle, go dogsledding, spot Northern Lights, and enjoy fewer crowds. And every trip below includes plenty of cultural exploration in one of Norway's vibrant urban centers: Oslo, Bergen, and Tromsø.
Having more than 10 days to travel in a country as beautiful as Norway is a real luxury, allowing you to see a few different regions without having to rush. Summer travelers can choose from a number of active or relaxing fjord trips that include one or more means of transportation (rental car, fjordcruise, train, and Hurtigruten), while those visiting in cooler months can head above the Arctic Circle for dramatic islands, Northern Lights, and fewer crowds. Most trips start and end in Oslo and/or Bergen, injecting the perfect amount of urban adventure.

It would have been a lot better if ferry timings were taken into planning. We reached Bodø on Saturday from Oslo, not much to do. On Sunday ferry to Lofoten was not till 1 pm so lost morning. Reached Lofoten at 4.30 pm it was pitch dark so not much to see . So literally 2 wasted days Hurtigruten to Tromso cancelled no one’s fault . Rushed to Ice hotel that evening. That was fun
Next day after dog sledding we waited 2 hrs for nothing before getting dropped at hotel .

Exactly what I wanted/needed! Thank you Julia! · Norway - Nov 25 - Dec 3, 2019
I contacted KimKim for a much needed solo trip away and I was thinking about Norway. Julia was my specialist and she was fantastic! Not only did she listen to all of the things I wanted, but she was super fast in her response time. What most impressed me was that she would respond, day or night and at one location where they couldn't find the reservation she was available in real time. Additionally, she messaged me throughout the trip to see how it was going. She made my experience... read more

Trip to Norway · Norway - Aug 2 - Aug 12, 2019
Overall the trip was great. The activities were fantastic and varied, and it was all relatively seamless. 2 areas of feedback:
1. Some of the hotel information wasn't provided until a little later, so it gave us a little anxiety since it was our first time using the service.
2. The first hotel took payment from us even though the hotel was paid by kimkim. I think that was the hotels fault though.
Besides those 2, I am very satisfied with the service!
10 Days in Norway: 7 Unique Itinerary Ideas · Norway - May 28 - Jun 8, 2019
I can't thank Julia enough for all her recommendations of where to go in Northern Norway. I started out trying to organise the trip myself, as I would usually do, and Norway had me perplexed with exactly where to go and how much time we would need. Julia was spot on with her advice and location choices. Particular highlights were the Sea Cabins in Reine, the stunning house and surrounding areas in Senja and the gorgeous accommodation approximately 30 minutes outside Tromso. Active Tromso... read more
