9 Day Awoken Wilderness of the Norwegian Summer
Two empires live inside of Norway, the glacier-carved fantasyland perched between northern Europe and the Norwegian Sea: the winter kingdom, blanketed in snow, and its summertime rival, a short-lived domain of green meadows warmed by the Midnight Sun. This exclusive Explorers Club Collection summer edition experience spirits travelers deep into the fjordlands at Norway’s heart, and the thawed Arctic wilderness at its edges. Please note, the travel window for this journey is June to September.

From Oslo, travel through the majestic fjords by train along the renowned Bergen Railway, one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, en route to rural Aurland, where you’ll stay amidst the lush mountains at a boutique hotel on a historic farm. Hike with a private guide through stunning scenery, reaching the serene Turlidfossen waterfall and the eye-popping scenic lookout at Stegastein, where you can look 2,100 feet down to the Aurland fjord below. Travel by boat, sailing through the grandiose Naeroyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed arm of the Sognefjord, co-ranked as the world’s number one natural heritage site by the National Geographic Society. Head north into the Arctic Circle to Svalbard, a vast archipelago of indescribable remoteness and unspoiled natural beauty, where you’ll discover the Global Seed Vault at Longyearbyen, an irreplaceable repository of seeds representing the full diversity of our planet’s plant life – a precautionary measure in the event of a global catastrophe. Travel on a private safari boat to the remote Isfjord Radio at Kapp Linne – an Arctic radio station transformed into an exclusive boutique hotel, where you’ll have several days of boat safari excursions exploring the remote coastal wilderness, keeping an eye out for Svalbard reindeer, arctic fox, and more. Discover how even at the edge of the world, you’re never far from home.
