We are living in a world where traveling has become such a gruesome task for even the most seasoned travelers out there. From vaccination and quarantine requirements, PCR tests, to health declaration forms, traveling these days can be a struggle, even before you get to planning the actual trip.
There are however a few countries out there that have acknowledged these tedious obstacles and removed all their entry restrictions for incoming tourists.
Among those countries is Norway, a breathtaking country in northern Europe.
Norway is a beautiful and peaceful country that offers unique, natural phenomena, such as the amazing fjords, the long and rugged coast, the magic northern lights, and the exotic midnight sun.
Norway is any outdoor and adventures traveler’s dream place to visit. A country that has up until this point been spared with over-tourism and massive crowds.
Not only is Norway a beautiful place to visit, but it’s also one of the happiest countries in the world.
As of February 12, 2022, you can travel to Norway without having to worry about anything other than having the time of your life.
- No testing.
- No quarantining.
- No registration.
- No proof of vaccination.
These days planning a trip can feel like taking up another job, but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. That’s where Up Norway comes into action.
Up Norway is the number one travel curator in Norway, meant to create a perfect match between travelers and Norway.
The company saves you from frustrating internet searches and tedious travel logistics. Up Norway has created a system that hand-tailors your needs to all that Noway has to offer. No two travelers are the same, so why should their travel itinerary be?
It does this by presenting you with a brief questionnaire that will help them get to know you and determine what type of trip would suit you best.
What trip are you looking for? A relaxing break? Family Vacation? A luxurious retreat, or perhaps an active adventure. These are all options that you can select.
After that, you will be asked when you’d like to visit because each season has its appeal and charm.
Up Norway will then ask you what your particular interests are: food and drink, nature and wildlife, relaxation and wellness, history and local culture, or scenic drives perhaps.
You can even select an option to be surprised with a custom-tailored trip!
Additional highlights include:
- Treetop cabins in the dense Finnskogen Forest.
- Micro retreats in the wilderness.
- Whale and bird watching.
- Stories around the bonfire in the polar night.
- Cruising through the majestic Hjørundfjord for the perfect ski spots.
- Foraging in the sea.
- Hiking and pack rafting from the Sami town of Kautokeino through Reisa National Park.
- Visiting a reindeer sanctuary.
- And more.
After you select your preferences on what you like to do, you’ll be asked where you would want to stay, followed by inputting your contact details as well as your budget and whether you’re traveling with children.
Overall, Up Norway takes the hardest part of traveling: the planning, organizing, budgeting, researching, and shifts that burden from you to their very capable team.
A team that knows what Norway is all about, a team that can create your dream itinerary because they know Norway and they know what you’re looking for.
With Up Norway, all a traveler has to do is pack their bags and dream about their magical experience, quite the welcome opposite of what travel has looked like for the past two years.
A surprise vacation can be a great way for travelers to break out of their daily routines, and push their boundaries. Traveling is about what you don’t know. And sometimes a little help can go a long way.
