IMPORTANT: Updated information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Lofoten Islands by Thomas Rasmus Skaug, Visit Norway

Information regarding the Coronavirus situation in Norway and how it affects travel to Norway

In the Government’s latest update on travel restrictions, it has been decided that people travelling to Norway from a “red” country must provide a negative corona test upon arrival. You must take the test no more than 72 hours before you enter the country. You can be denied entry if you cannot provide this documentation. People who travel to Norway and do not have a place of residence must stay in quarantine at a hotel for 10 days after arrival. On the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH)’s official website, you’ll find a map and the latest information about quarantine regulations. The page will be updated at least every second week.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes, you can cancel the trip any time. Kindly note as long as your trip is not affected by any travel restriction as announced by the Norwegian government, our regular terms and conditions apply. Please note, that it is unfortunately not possible to seek a refund for the deposit payment. Nor can a claim for refund be made retroactive (at a later date), should it at a later date be announced that the Norwegian borders will be closed during your planned travel start in Norway. After cancellation you will first be asked to contact your insurance company regarding a refund.

What happens if my booking is affected by travel restrictions?

If your booking is affected by travel restrictions during your trip in any of our destinations, you will be contact by one of our travel consultants to discuss alternative arrangements. If there is no suitable alternative you will first be asked to contact your insurance company regarding a refund. If they will not provide a refund (written evidence will be required), we will proceed to make a refund for all recoverable costs including the deposit.
If you are restricted from travelling from your country of residence, we ask you kindly to inform us immediately. You must then contact your insurance company regarding a refund.
We strongly recommend a travel insurance policy that provides extensive Covid-19 cover for medical, cancellation and curtailment.

Can I postpone or change my booking at any date?

If changing the travel date or destination before the cancellation deadline, we will not charge any amendment fees. Please note that the new booking may be subject to seasonal tour prices as advertised on our website and we will adjust the tour price accordingly.

Could Fjord Travel Norway cancel my tour?

In the event that the border to Norway is closed due to Covid-19 at the time of your travel date (or is expected to close in the near future), we will offer alternative holiday arrangements for you. If this is not possible you will first be asked to contact your insurance company regarding a refund (written evidence will be required). If they will not provide a refund, we will make a full refund including the deposit.
We strongly recommend a travel insurance policy that provides extensive Covid-19 cover for medical, cancellation and curtailment.

What happens if my flights are cancelled?

If your booking is affected by cancelled flights preventing you from reaching your destination you to contact your insurance company regarding a refund. Please note that our agreement, and responsibility, is limited to your trip in Norway, and we are bound by Norwegian law. This means that we are not responsible for any travel restrictions, cancellations or any other situations in other countries that might impact your travel plans.

What our customers say:

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

    Candan, Turkey

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
