Why not supplement your voyage with a few fun activities for the whole family.
Norway can be a fun place for the whole family, young and old alike. Not only will you find family-friendly hotels, restaurants and attractions, but also activities ranging from high-octane adventures for the most thrill-seeking teenager to Viking theme parks with trolls and fairy-tale palaces perfect for the youngest travellers.
For the energetic and fearless, the thrills include sea kayaking, white-water-rafting, glacier trekking, bungee jumping, dogsledding, bobsledding, skiing and snowmobiling.
Gentler family options include safaris to seek out whales, eagles or wild reindeer, boat trips on magnificent fjords, interactive museums, water and wildlife parks and Viking-themed activities.
A unique Norwegian experience for the whole family is the Climate Park, with Norway`s coolest classroom set 50 meters into the ice and an ice tunnel below the highest mountain north of the Alps.
Norwegians are also avid festival-goers, so look at for the many music and culture festivals and the more unique varieties, such as the Tahiti Festival, an outdoor opera called Donna Bacalao or the world’s biggest herring feast.
In a country that claims, “there is no such thing as bad weather – only bad clothing” indoor options can be a good fallback. Many of Norway’s museums have interactive exhibits and children’s play areas. Others have special children’s programs with games, adventure activities and staff dressed in period costumes. Moreover, many museums and attractions allow free admission for children up to six years of age and half-price or discounted admission for those aged up to 16.
