Mar and her team did an amazing job organizing our trip to Norway! We had a general idea of what where we wanted to go during the trip (based on an itinerary found on the KimKim site) and Mar did a great job building on that. She scheduled us in the right places for the right amount of time, which we wouldn't have been able to do on our own. We enjoyed all the activities that she planned and it was a great mix of adventuring, site seeing, and just taking in the amazing scenery.

Communication was very smooth and they were very quick to respond to questions, especially during our time in Norway. The platform was great to have all the trip details and needed documents in one place. It was clear where we had to be when so we never missed an activity.

I highly recommend visiting Norway and using Mar to plan an unforgettable time there :)

Hotel Reviews
Thon Hotel Astoria
Oslo

Nice hotel in a good location in Oslo. Only complaint was that the walls seemed thin, we could hear people in the hallway and next door at times.

Fretheim Hotel
Flåm

There aren't a lot of hotel options in Flam, so this seems like your best bet. Overall a nice hotel but the rooms could use some updating.

Zander K Hotel
Bergen

Great hotel, was clean and comfortable with some modern design elements. Is a little set back from Bergen city center, but was still very easy to walk everywhere. Was convenient to be near the bus and train station for early more travel.

Scandic Ishavshotel
Tromsø

We loved this hotel as it was clean, comfortable and has great views being right on the water. It's near a lot of the places we wanted to visit in Tromso, and the bus stop right in front made transportation to and from the hotel easy.

We were so lucky to see the Northern Lights during this activity! Our guide was great and we found a good spot to wait for the lights to appear.
