10 Days in Norway: Winter

List View
Map View
Acclimatize for two days, visiting Oslo's museums, spas, and the city ski resort—before heading to Lillehammer for two days of serious ski action. From there, a 15-hour train ride to Bodø brings you into perpetual night. Spend two days hiking, snowshoeing, fishing, and skiing before going by bus, plane, or boat to Tromsø, a surprisingly happening city in Norway's far north. Watch for the northern lights until it's time to fly back to Oslo.

Jernbanetorget 2, 2609 Lillehammer, Norway
The few episodes of the Netflix show Lilyhammer didn't prepare me for my visit to the actual town of Lillehammer itself. With its bricked pedestrian mall filled with boutiques and other high-end shops, the town seemed more like a nordic Boulder, ...

Plassmyrveien 11, 8008 Bodø, Norway
Bodø is known as a prime fishing destination due to the town's proximity to Saltstraumen, the world's strongest maelstrom which brings millions of gallons of ocean water rushing through a narrow sound, water carrying with it a plethora of North...
