Listicles

On your next family trip abroad, experience firsthand why the people of Norway have been named the happiest in the world. Venture to the Scandinavian country with the kids and experience the Northern Lights, fjords and stunning natural beauty amid a bustling urban lifestyle. Immerse yourselves in the local culture of small towns between scenic excursions with the family — now you just have to narrow down the locale.

Oslo Airport

Fly into the capital city, Oslo, at the main airport hub, Oslo Airport. Although the busiest airport, Oslo is the most convenient for getting into the city and offers easy transportation by way of shuttle train, Flytoget Airport Express Train. Grab the bags, snag the kids and head for the Flytoget Train, departing every 10–20 minutes. Flytoget transports travelers to the city in about 19–22 minutes and is fast, easy and affordable.

Enjoy the city’s bustling nightlife, bourgeoning restaurant scene and pristine downtown area. Shop and sightsee by day and head out for a few shows at night. Bring the kids along or check in at the concierge for activities for them and caretaking services so you can head out just the two of you for drinks and lively entertainment at night.

The western region offers close proximity to the country’s famous fjords and endless wild beauty, while providing modern comforts and easy access to urban life. Visiting the wild beauty and epic fjords of Norway is must. Expect breathtaking views and awe-inspiring scenery.

The natural beauty of Bergen offers a unique getaway complete with quaint villages and old wharf towns, historic fortresses and stunning views. Located along the southwestern coast, the vibrant homes of Bergen are surrounded by fjords, mountains and panoramic views.

The nature-meets-modern identity Norway cultivated is just one draw of many to the incredible country. Check out Norway’s official guide and top 10 destinations here to plan your next trip — because you can’t do it all in one.
