Everett Potter, a Forbes contributing writer, spotlights our ‘Norway: Western Fjords Adventure’ in his list of 5 New Adventures For 2024. The article selects journeys for travelers looking for “fresh and intriguing ways to see a new part of the world” and our Norway tour topped the list.
From Bergen onwards to the iconic Western Fjord area, our tour takes guests to the heart of Norway’s picturesque landscapes.

The magic of this expedition extends beyond its beautiful views. Guests explore the country’s charms through a range of cultural and historical activities that will “satisfy the most ambitious travelers”.
