Experience that counts
Our philosophy is as relevant today as it was 40 years ago: We create and organize trips that we ourselves want to go on! Travel with us and enjoy this experience.
We have trusted, local partners. We have worked with many of them years.
The very best experience
Our tours are often the result of long travel experiences and are optimized so that you can have the very best outcome. However, not everything always goes as planned- some things we don't have 100 percent control over. What we can promise is that we will do everything we can to make your trip as good as possible. If you want a few extra holiday days before or after a group trip, we can even help you with that.
We go to great lengths to stitch together the perfect holiday for you, your family and your friends.
Experiences at all levels
Many people think that Norrøna Hvitserk only deals with expeditions and demanding trips. We don't - we have everything from hiking tours in Helgeland to demanding skiing expeditions in Svalbard. We offer all different levels and trip types.
As long as you like to move around in nature, we are sure that you will find an exciting trip that is just right for you.
We deliver the real thing
Our tours are different. On our trips you must be prepared to get tired. On some you have to be prepared to freeze. On other you have to be prepared to sweat. Of coruse we combine the sweat and the freezing with comfort as well.
Norwegian culture focuses on simple and cozy accommodations with an importance placed on shared spaces to build community. The Norwegian word for this is “Koselig” or “Hyggelig”, which does not directly translate to English. This concept embodies the feeling of a warm and cozy atmosphere, where everyone is comfortable and feels at home.
Many of our trips go to destinations off the grid. There are places where you can't check your email. There are some places where there is not even mobile coverage (consider it a privilege!).
Regardless of whether you are traveling on a demanding expedition in Svalbard, a week's hike in Lofoten or a kayaking adventure, you will benefit from the experiences we have gained over the past 40 years. We are experts in nature-based tourism.
You are not just a guest, you are a participant.
Our trips will make some demands of you as a guest; You can contribute! On all our tours, surprises may occur. On most trips, you will have the best time if you are flexible and travel with an open mind. On some trips it can also be an advantage to have a little patience. That's what it's like to be traveling!
There is a reason why so many people travel with us again and again. In 2019, a whopping 97.2% said they could imagine going on trips with Norrøna Hvitserk again - we are very proud of that.
Small groups and travel buddies for life
With us, you travel in small groups and get to have contact with all the participants, regardless of whether you travel alone or with someone. Smaller groups are more personal and you have a greater opportunity to leave your mark on the trip. We hope you experience a trip with Norrøna Hvitserk as a trip with friends.
