Sustainable luxury travel curator Up Norway is launching a new Mystery Trip planning service for the influx of travelers that are increasing up for going anywhere. After varying levels of lockdown over the past two years, a surprise vacation experience is an increasing trend. Through its proprietary digital questionnaire, an Up Norway trip specialist will e-meet with travelers to determine travel dates and interests as well as goals for the trip, preferences for accommodations and budget. Then it’s time for travelers to dream dreams of where they’ll end up while Up Norway crafts a custom journey of unique experiences, cultural explorations, meetups with locals, and more.
Highlights of travel to Norway range from treetop cabins in the dense Finnskogen Forest of fir trees punctuated by blue lakes or other micro retreats in the wilderness and whale and bird watching in dramatic natural landscapes, to stories around the bonfire in the polar night and cruising through the majestic Hjørundfjord to pinpoint the perfect spot for skiing adventures in the Sunnmore Alps. With Norway's increasing presence on the international culinary scene, travelers can expect mouth watering food experiences, top local produce including berries ripened under the midnight sun, imbibing in Norway’s liquid gold - Hardanger Sider, traditional and neo-fjordic menus, and more. The culture of the native Sami is incorporated throughout many Up Norway journeys from hiking and packrafting from the Sami town of Kautokeino through Reisa National Park on the Arctic trail, native knowledge and sami mysticism, visiting a reindeer sanctuary, and other custom experiences.
Curated accommodations include not only boutique hotels but also stilted log cabins, lakeside yurts, tent igloos, and renovated lighthouses: cozy places where you’re hosted by the owners and introduced to the local culture and traditions. Up Norway’s partners are native Norwegians who take pride in serving local cuisine and show off their vibrant culture to Up Norway travelers.
An invaluable resource for travelers looking to visit the country now, Up Norway takes care of all the details, so a traveler’s journey is worry-free. Plus, a highlight of travel with Up Norway is the personalized Digital Travel Guide with 24-hour chat service. Whether there are delays, cancellations, weather issues or any other concerns or questions, an Up Norway Insider can assist with all traveling needs within minutes of a conversation.
Pricing starts at $2300 per person for a 5-night Mystery Trip based on two people traveling together. Mystery Trips can also be curated for solo travelers and small groups of families or friends. For more information on Mystery Trips with Up Norway, please visit https://upnorway.com.
