Art inspired by nature
Known for its amazing nature, Norway is making a name for itself as a cultural destination. Our tours for groups and individuals showcase the best that our country has to offer in the fields of Art, literature, architecture & design.
We suggest starting your cultural journey with a city break in Oslo or Bergen and to continue into the heart of the country. There you will understand why Norwegian painters, writers but also architects and designers have drawn their inspiration from the fjords and mountains.
Interested in classical or modern, traditional, or contemporary, we will indicate the address of the museum or concert hall to suit your taste and use our network of local experts, curators, designers, and private owners of art & villas to make your experience complete.
