Wildlife holidays in Norway

Tell me about Norway …

An independent monarchy in the north of Europe, Norway boasts a spectacular coastline extending more than 21,000 kilometres and punctuated by a myriad of deep fjords.

Away from the coast the country consists of large expanses of high plateaux, mountains separated by deep glacial valleys and tracts of mainly coniferous forest studded by lakes.

This is a wild, largely unspoilt country with a human population density less than 1/17th that of the UK in a land area 80,000 square kilometres larger. The proximity of the Arctic Circle influences all aspects of Norwegian life resulting in long daylight hours through the summer months and correspondingly short winter days.

Our Norway specialist recommends...

"Our ‘Norway’s Varanger Fjord’ tour visits the Varanger Peninsula, we hope to see some real Arctic specialities with Steller’s and King Eiders possible as well as Gyr Falcon. Our ‘Spitsbergen Wildlife Cruise’ is a wildlife expedition where you can experience the spectacular scenery and the amazing Arctic wildlife, including the Polar Bear."

Whats special about the wildlife?

The flora and fauna reflect the relatively harsh environment at this northern extremity of Europe, but one of the most unexpected features is a mostly ice free winter coastline thanks to the Gulf Stream waters.
Naturalist visitors from southern Europe will find a great deal that is unusual and unfamiliar in these northern climes.

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Norway HOLIDAYS

The amazing wildlife sightings and scenery, very much aided by good weather and the enthusiasm and knowledge of the expedition staff and Naturetrek guides.
Nothing was too much trouble for our 2 Finnish leaders.
Although it is hyperbole to say so, this has been the best holiday ever. We were blessed with a huge amount of sunshine which enabled us to see almost every species on the Naturetrek list. The fellow travellers were equally keen and of great company. Led by a most knowledgeable Malcolm Scott whose enthusiasm is infectious and whose dancing has to be witnessed! The only downsides were only 3 polar bears and that we must rejoin the civilised world. But thank you Naturetrek for another excellent holiday.
