Norway 10-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 33 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Norway.

10 days in Norway is enough time to explore in-depth either the cities, mountains, and fjords of the south or the wonders of the midnight sun or Aurora Borealis in the north at a laid-back pace. For travelers who don't mind a faster-paced trip, you can also take in the highlights of both. Travelers who dream of famous fjords and dramatic mountain views can take a whirlwind road trip from Bergen to Stavanger, Eidfjord, and Årdal. If chasing the northern lights high above the Arctic Circle is more your thing, you can venture to the remote landscapes of the north by boat, road, and even dogsled. Adventurous travelers looking for an active trip that is truly off-the-beaten-path can head north to the borderlands for an inter-country trek between Norway and Finland.
