This holiday season, Norway offers travelers the Northern Lights, Christmas lights, holiday artisan markets and interactive workshops for travelers and locals alike. With a focus on curating uniquely Norwegian experiences, Up Norway offers off-the-beaten-path itineraries for travelers. Although all journeys and experiences can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each group, Up Norway recommends the following destinations this holiday season.

Lofoten Islands

Travelers can experience pre-Christmas time north of the Arctic Circle on the Lofoten Islands. Stay in private, secluded villas; discover the traditional, red-painted rorbu cabins of the artisan Christmas markets; and participate in workshops like glassblowing, ceramics and sustainable wool. For those wanting to explore the landscapes, head out on outdoor hikes, snowshoe trails and even try your hand at photographing the Northern Lights.

Fjord Country

Norway’s UNESCO heritage fjord country, surrounded by lush pastures and towering peaks, offers a popular destination during the holiday season. Immerse yourself into a tranquil world of rich cultural history and untouched nature with the help of hoteliers and their extended team of locals. For a cozy stay, check out family estate Amot, available for groups of up to 12 guests. While staying at the property, spend your days on a winter cruise in the secluded Dalsfjord, winter hiking with outdoor lunches, stargazing from an outdoor hot tub, pampering yourself with a hot-stone massage or yoga sessions with a view. All food served on property is locally sourced and prepared by the resident chef.

Oslo

Up Norway suggests spending a few days exploring the capital before hopping on a train to take you to the snow-covered landscapes of the mountain village of Geilo. Once in the village, enjoy activities like kick-sledding, cross-country skiing, dog sledding and ice fishing. After working up an appetite, indulge in home-cooked meals made with local fish and other ingredients, and a glass of gluhwein (mulled wine). Next, make your way over to Voss aboard Flåm Railway. The trip through Voss offers a trip through the UNESCO Heritage-protected fjord landscapes and a variety of winter activities. The journey ends in a treetop cabin in the Finnskogen forest where you can listen for the sounds of wolves and owls while searching for shooting stars.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.
