Thanks to the weaker Norwegian currency, there has never been a more affordable time to explore Norway. This spectacular Scandinavian country offers jaw-dropping scenic views and a huge range of attractions and activities to suit every interest and age – so why not plan your next holiday in Norway? Norwegian suggests some ideas for a fantastic holiday in Norway.
Norway is globally renowned for being one of the most beautiful countries in the world and this summer holiday makers will get more bang for their buck thanks to the weaker Norwegian Krone. There is a wide range of activities to keep the most demanding holiday maker occupied and the spectacular mountains, fjords, and small villages are waiting to be explored.
”A holiday in Norway can easily be combined with a few days in the capital Oslo followed by visiting some of our famous destinations like Lofoten, Tromsø and Trondheim. Norwegian offers direct flights to Oslo from London Gatwick, as well as other popular European cities, and has a large domestic route network in Norway,” says Magnus Maursund, Chief Commercial Officer at Norwegian.
