Why not supplement your voyage with unique experiences of Norwegian culture.
Norway’s rich culture is visible everywhere. It can be seen in rare Viking artefacts, cutting-edge architecture, or the artistic creativity of painter Edvard Munch and playwright Henrik Ibsen.
Our ports of call and stopovers make it easy for you to immerse yourself in authentic Norwegian cultural experiences, including around 300 art and cultural festivals. If you want to go beyond the mainstream events, try the Tahiti Festival, an outdoor opera called Donna Bacalao or the world’s biggest herring feast.
If you’re a “foodie”, don’t forget to sample Norwegian cuisine, with all its regional variations. Try west country delicacies like smoked ribs and lamb’s head or famous northern seafood specialties like salted cod and bacalao. Inland villages abound with ultra-local dishes, such as pizza made with ale dough base, cheese from mountain goats and aquavit embellished sausage.
Art buffs can visit the capital’s big attractions such as the megalithic Vigeland sculpture park and groundbreaking new Munch Museum or enjoy local artistic hubs such as Bodø’s community of artists, glass blowers, potters, and jewellery makers.
Music lovers can experience the sheer diversity of Norway’s thriving musical traditions. It ranges from a strong folk music heritage featuring unique vocal and forms and instruments to the country’s world-renowned electronic music wave and DJs.
