A Little About Us

Creating Moments

What sets us apart from everyone is that our focus is not on the destinations but on those seemingly small, special moments. Standing by a river’s edge, holding your first fish with a fly fishing rod. Cross-Country Skiing slowly between the trees in the Norwegian winter forest. We believe the greatest travel moments come from these seemingly small, special moments.

We invite you to join us a little deeper, in culture and in experience. Be to engaged with our enviroment, not just to look at attractions – to interact with culture and touch nature. Returning, not only with memories and photos, but a feeling of connection to the places we ventured through.

Expert Guides

Your own Guide – Cultural Ambassador and Local Expert.

Our guides have a background in photography, guiding in nature, and culture & tourism.

Every tour is tested at the start of every season.  Our guide is also required basic information about all guests before each tour starts: dietary needs, medical conditions etc.. Expect to fill out a form before the tour starts, for your own safety and comfort.

Our most valuable intention for our guests is to create moments that give a feeling on ‘connection’ to nature. To trigger those ‘connective moments’ comes quite naturally, but we have a strategy to invite that moment to come.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you’re thinking of visiting the nordic region, you might have a few questions. Check our FAQs below for some of the most popular queries. 

1. IS IT SAFE TO TRAVEL TO NORWAY?

Norway is a very safe place to visit — it’s a peaceful country with one of the lower crime rates in the world. Our dedicated office will be up to date regarding events, as well as changing weather reports, to keep you safe on your journey. Don’t hesitate to ask locals questions or advice as most Norwegian are happy to answer questions and used to travellers – as they like to travel themselves!

2. HOW LONG SHOULD I VISIT?

Depending on how many places and how ‘deep’ you want to travel in Norway – our suggestion is based on many factors.
Weather: If you want to see the aurora also known as northern lights – most go above the polar circle. To see the aurora you need time to be patient in case of changing weather!

3. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT?

The best time to visit will depend on the attractions you want to see and areas you want to visit. For instance, the northern lights have higher visibility during the winter months and certain routes of the interior highlands are only accessible during the summer season. Iceland sees more visitors between June and August as the weather is milder and the days are longer but in recent years, the winter months have also been very popular with travellers coming to experience New Year’s and winter activities.

4. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Different places in Norway is famous for its stunning natural beauty, but what’s lesser known is that its weather is quick to change and is as varied as the landscape, so make sure to pack smart and stay warm. We will send you a suggested packing list to inform you about recommendation for proper clothing that suits the current climate!

5. WHERE DO I HAVE THE BEST CHANCE OF SEEING THE NORTHERN LIGHTS?

he best time to see the northern lights is during the winter season between October and March. The reason for this is that during the winter months, the nights are dark enough to see them shine and flicker. For the best chance of viewing the lights, stay out past 8 PM and visit secluded areas away from the light pollution of the towns and cities, as darker conditions increase your chances of a sighting.

6. WHERE AND WHEN CAN I SEE THE MIDNIGHT SUN?

Arctic Norway experiences a natural phenomena called the “midnight sun” in the warmer months where the days are extended well into the evening. To experience this, you need to visit Iceland during the height of summer (from May to July). As a reference, the summer solstice is the longest day of the year and is on the 21st of June, so visit closer to this time to see and experience it.

7. DO I NEED A POWER CONVERTER FOR NORWAY?

Power converters may be required for small electrical appliances depending on where you’re visiting from as Scandinavia uses Northern European electrical standards (50 Hz/220 volts) and uses the standard Europlug socket with two round prongs. For these plugs you can use adapter types “C” or “F”.

Appliances such as chargers for laptops, digital cameras or mobile phones, may already be compatible with multiple voltages and will just require travel adapter if not a Europlug. However, we do not recommend bringing a hair dryer from North America as the voltage difference may result in it getting broken or short-fused. Don’t worry though, many hotels have hair dryers in rooms. If you’ve forgotten to bring a converter or adaptor, don’t worry — you can buy them in most airports, at electronic stores, souvenir shops, selected bookstores and some major hotels.

8. IS ENGLISH SPOKEN WELL IN NORWAY?

In all Norway, the English language is overall considered to be spoken at a fluent level – the might have a strong accent, but they are able to converse and communicate well with you.
