I am Merée Ruzits, an Estonian living in Norway. I came to Norway to study, fell in love with nature, and decided to extend my stay. During my stay here I have found a passion for not only traveling but also sharing the travels.
Thus, I am here to help you experience the beauty and wonders of Norway and to help you create memories for life!
How did you get involved in travel?
"My passion for travel was sparked by my family's camping trips around Europe. I loved the excitement of waiting for a trip and also sharing the new experiences with loved ones. Later in life, when I started to discover more about my personal interest, I got into planning the travels. I enjoy the process from idea to reality, from expectation to actuality, from the excitement to satisfaction - which a good travel experience provides you. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Every one of my travels has brought a new kind of uniqueness to my life. I will never forget the cable car ride up to Tatar mountains, the view from Preikestolen, beautiful European old-towns, or the hot springs of Slovakia. The only commonality here is that in order to experience this uniqueness I have needed to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the world as it is. "

Picture perfect Norway October 2022

Just finished the fourth trip planned by Kimkim , and the first time working with Merée in Norway. Excellent planning, great selection of hotels and activities. Due to a death in the family one week before our original date we needed to shift the trip out by two weeks. Not a problem for Merée and Sonia, many thanks.
My brother and I loved the Polar Fjord Sea eagle tour from Bodo. Primary focus of the trip was to photograph Northern Lights and we succeeded very well especially in Tromsa... read more

Wonderful week in Norway
Jul 26 - Aug 2, 2022
I love researching and planning trips but this year I just did not have the time to do it and as our family wanted to try somewhere new and different I was delighted to find KimKim ! The process of booking our Norway trip was really easy and Merée was able to design a customised itinerary based on a little feedback on our group needs and interests. This included some really enjoyable events that I don't think would have been on our radar had I been researching myself, such as Ciderhuset and... read more

Jun 11 - Jun 26, 2022
I cannot recall how I became aware of KimKim but I am thrilled beyond belief that I used this company. Both Meree and Sonia helped me plan a 2&1/2 week vacation to Norway. My husband and I started in Oslo and traveled as far north to Geiranger in the Geiranger Fjord and Alesund. We traveled via train, ferry, bus and a one night stay on the famous Hurtigruten. The itinerary was a nice pace and gave us plenty of time in each destination. The tickets and scheduling we all done for us. And... read more
Well planned family holiday to Norway
Jul 4 - Jul 12, 2022
We had been looking for some time to do a family trip to Norway in the summer but didn't have the time to do all the detailed planning that we would historically have done. We are a family of four with children ages 11 and 9.
We had a rough idea as to the places we wanted to visit (Bergen, Lofoten Islands, Tromso, and Oslo).
After a few, but not too many, iterations Meree was able to construct an itinerary that worked. She sorted out a reasonable sequence of destinations, hotels that... read more
An amazing experience

It has been an amazing experience. Meree and Sonia were really helpful planning the trip and were quickly answering and solving our doubts and requests.
We had a wonderful trip with no issues and their recommendations about what to see during spring allowed us to enjoy the most beautiful parts of South Norway while enjoying an amazing weather.
Definitely we will come back to organise our next trip. read more
