"Up Norway are simply a fantastic team to work with. Right from the outset they listen to your requirements, understand your budget and understand your key likes/dislikes. From that they build the most amazing trip you can imagine, organising and recommending flights, locations etc. For sure listen to them when they say "hey, go to Oslo for a night" - they really know what they are talking about. Lovely people, lovely company and lovely culture. Highly recommended for any trip, for sure! Thank you team Up Norway for everything.

"Great company, very dedicated to design the trip we wanted to do. We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Tromso, watching whales, enjoying the scenery, experiencing the reindeer and the dogsleds and catching some northern lights. Looking forward to coming back.

"I cannot recommend Up Norway highly enough. Our request for a 12-day multi-generational tour (72 year old grandfather, 40 year old daughter, and two grandsons - 8 and 10 years of age) was a challenge. We asked for more adventure and less history (for the grandkids), culinary specialties (for the adults), and accommodations ranging from very nice to somewhat primitive (for all of us). The itinerary that Kristin and Henriette put together was awesome and met all our expectations.
Adventure - hiking tours in Aalesund and Lovund Island, rib boat excursion in Saltstraumen.
Culinary - exquisite typical Norwegian meals in Flam and Lovund Island (2).
Accommodations - everything from 5-star hotels to domed bubble tents in a forest.
Sightseeing - ferries up two major fiords, puffin colony on Lovund Island, Analsnes to Dombas train ride through a spectacular valley, crossing the Arctic Circle on train, overnight cruise from Bergen to Aelsund.
Up Norway definitely works very hard to create the perfect tour based on the customer's desires - and in our case they did a magnificent job. Our 12-day tour will be a lasting memory for all of us. Without the guidance from Kristin, we would probably never have visited Aalesund or Lovund Island - two of the highlights of our tour. Fortunately, we spent two nights in each of these places and would definitely return on any future trips. Similarly, we would never have found the domed tent site in Straumen Gard, just outside Mo I Rana. Our boys loved it. It was the epitome of "glamping". We learned from the proprietor that Kristan came to Straumen Gard for the sole purpose of checking it out before recommending it to us. Queen sized bed, wood burning stove, and sitting area - with dinner and breakfast provided by the wonderful hosts. It was amazing! We can't thank you enough.
“Incredible to be able to experience Lofoten this way and all together a fantastic experience. The night at Lofoten Food Studio, VIP-treatment at Unstad Arctic surf were highlights. Kristian was a superb host and bus driver Ståle a star! We have learnt about local history and culture - and gained knowledge we would not have gotten if we had traveled on our own".

"We have returned home with full hearts, memories we will treasure forever & a deep gratitude to you and your team for making the trip to Norway extraordinarily heart-warming. After a brutal few years for the travel industry we couldn’t have asked for a more uplifting and inspiring trip to remind us of the importance of travel."
