Visiting Norway in busy summer time with no fuss no muss

February 16, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

There are many reasons why Norway appeals to travelers. Its natural beauty, iconic fjords, scenic cruises and train journeys are amongst the most popular. Visiting this region in peak summer months however can be overwhelming, especially when ‘bucket listers’ are flocking to the same sites at the same time.  It can disappoint and decrease the desire to return or explore further afield.

Scandinavian Travel Specialist, 50 Degrees North, with its local expertise and in-depth destination knowledge brings novelty and creativity to its programs and never disappoints. Their self-drive itineraries and small independent or escorted tours offer well-rounded Norwegian travel experiences, delivered with ease and style.

As showcased in the superb new 8-day Independent tourBeautiful Norway , exclusively designed and operated by 50 Degrees North takes visitors to the heart of the destination’s iconic sites and experiences, with added value and attention to details. Special feature of this tour are the exclusive transfers aboard a private mini-bus, offering superior comfort and flexibility for impromptu food or photographic stops. The tour also offers overnight stays in some of the country’s finest boutique hotels, in true and authentic Norwegian fashion.

The Beautiful Norway mini-bus takes independent travellers to lesser-known places through the quiet mountain area in the east, past Norway’s highest peak, Galdhøpiggen. The journey then continues along the stunning mountain pass routes of Sognefjellsveien and Aurlandsfjellet.

These spectacular areas steer visitors away from large crowds, combining high mountains and rugged terrain with the inner reaches of the captivating and world-renowned Sognefjord. To top it off, the tour also includes a side trip to Geiranger, visiting a remarkable medieval Stave Church full of wood and mythical dragons.

“We put of a lot of thought into each of our itineraries” says Tietse Stelma, 50 Degrees North’s co-founder. “We shy away from crowds and the typical itineraries that often end up rushed and congested”, added Stelma.

The Beautiful Norway tour aims to introduce travelers to new areas, hotels, and service providers outside of the traditional and busier routes. The scenery is equally magnificent and the experience even more authentic, with an added benefit of injecting tourism revenue into local communities.

The tour runs weekly from May to September with fixed departures from Oslo every Saturday. The trip can also run in reverse starting from Aurland every Thursdaybetween May 17 to September 27, 2018.
