Grand Norway Adventure - May 13th to May 25th 2020
Trip is cancelled due to Corona Virus.

I partnered up with my long time friend Geri and created this trip for anyone who has Norway on their bucket list. We were working together with Scandia World Travel but now Geri is working on a worldwide cruise as a cruise director and we have put everything on hold. However I am keeping this page up on my website, who knows, maybe we can pick it up again in the future sometime. Best, Benedicte 


This Grand Tour of Norway will take you through some of the best mountains, fjords, and coastlines that Norway has to offer. We will focus on it’s three most impressive cities: Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. We will also enjoy the world famous Norwegian Fjords on the west coast. This is the trip for active older adults, with a group size limited to only 20 guests.

 This trip is more than a regular tourist tour! Along with meeting new friends, you will also meet the locals and experience Norway like the natives. We will have a one of a kind experience, celebrating the Norwegian National Holiday on the 17th of May in traditional style. May is a wonderful time to visit Norway. With long light evenings, it truly is the land of the ‪midnight sun‬!
