Up Norway launches gender-equality focussed tour

Up Norway is inviting travellers to explore Norway from a gender equality perspective with the launch of its new journey: Tracing Norway’s Super Women.

Norway is one of the world’s most gender equal countries, and this curated journey offers a historical and geographical adventure that introduces travellers to remarkable stories ranging from 17th century witch trials in wild Varanger to female empowerment today in a whiskey distillery on the island of Fedje.

Highlights throughout the 10-day journey include:

  • Scandinavia’s only Women’s Museum for an introduction to Norway’s equality journey from an international perspective.
  • Witchcraft and wildlife with a guided visit to the Steilneset Memorial and Vardøhus fortress to learn more about the use of art and architecture as an important part of history.
  • Unique king crab fishing experience with storytelling about strong female characters who historically have served the same roles as men, as skippers and in the household.
  • A visit to Feddie Ocean Distillery, Norway’s first organic certified distillery that is creating a completely new type of classic whiskey: Norwegian single malt.
  • Guided tour of Ekeberg Sculpture Park, acclaimed as one of the world’s top five sculpture parks, which features depictions of women and work by female artists.
  • Top accommodations with a focus on the country’s leading females – including the restored boutique hotel Camilla’s House, originally the private residence of author Camilla Collett, one of Norway’s most significant novelists and women’s rights activists.

The new Women’s Journey begins at £4,425pp based on a minimum of eight travellers. Lodging and all local transfers from arrival to departure are included in pricing as well as various privately guided tours, select meals and a digital itinerary provided by Up Norway. Each Up Norway journey can be tailored to the traveller’s needs and preferences as desired.
