See Some of our Favourite Journeys

We know Norway like our own back pockets, here are some of our personal favourites - guaranteed experiences out of the ordinary.

Experiencing what matters by going slow

Since moving to Norway from the UK in 2016, Danny has truly learned to appreciate Norway as the land of 'kos' - a truly special, yet intangible concept.

We all strive to find new meaning in the new normal and for Danny travelling slow is the perfect way to take stock, embrace 'kos' and appreciate what is around him.

Embark on cultural and culinary experiences

Thanks to the Scandinavian food revolution of the last few years, traditional dishes and their ingredients are back, looking cooler and tasting fresher than ever. Did you know that as of September 2022, Norway has 14 restaurants with a total of 17 stars in the Michelin guide? Or that Norwegians drink the most coffee in the world (after the Finns)?

Our food heritage is a part of our cultural identity and a valuable factor in empowering and enabling participation in Norwegian society. Eating and drinking your way through Norway is the perfect Foodie-adventure.

Experience the realm of Norwegian folklore

Norway has a long and diverse history which can be found in the small villages and nature along the coast and countryside. Mari grew up in Beitostølen, close to Skåbu – Norway’s oldest village (and the highest settlement in Northern Europe). Here our guests can immerse themselves in the realm of Norwegian folklore while staying at an incredible family mountain lodge with an excellent kitchen, warm atmosphere and modern facilities.

"I highly recommend upNorway for their professionalism and exceptional quality. The fantastic team curated a trip for me that was 100% perfect. It was the first trip for the kids to Europe and their first snow experience. upNorway experience and passion for their country is delivered in the trips they plan for you. The entire experience was magical and truly memorable as we watched the Northern Lights in Lofoten, saw the majestic Sea Eagles, hiked through the snow… our family bonded and enjoyed ourselves because we did not have to worry about any of the bookings and timings etc. It was all on an app that upNorway uses and they have an emergency contact number if anything should go wrong. It’s like having a friend by your side throughout. So if you looking to see the Northern Lights and have a one in a lifetime experience then upnorway is the company to use.

"On a scale of 1-5, I would give UpNorway a 6! The package included first class accommodations, food, and transportation as represented. Adjustments and customization in the itinerary were made to make it truly our vacation. The insider tips, especially the recommendation of clothing to pack, were invaluable, as well as what was NOT necessary to bring. Our itinerary was organized digitally, which turned out to be extremely helpful in tech savvy Norway. The staff was available via the chat function for extended hours during the day, so they were on hand to be sure everything went smoothly.

"Traveling with UpNorway was a fantastic experience. Everything from the excursions, accommodations, meals, and travel between destinations was meticulously planned leaving myself and my travel companions able to just sit back and enjoy the adventure. Any small changes that did need to be made were handled swiftly and professionally. The actual activities themselves felt truly once in a lifetime, and something you could only experience (in our case) in the Artic Circle. I felt they went out of their way to make the trip so memorable that even if we didn't get to see the Northern Lights, it would still be well worth the cost, and they succeeded. But yes we also got to see the lights :)
