Whether you’re exploring the city of Oslo or spotting the Northern Lights in the Lofoten Islands, book one of these chic holiday apartments to make the most of your stay in Norway.

Norway is a land of frigid saltwater, snow-capped mountains, craggy fjords and high plateaus. You’ll never run out of gorgeous landscapes to explore in this wild country, whether by foot, boat, car or kayak. From Fredrikstad and the Hvaler islands (boasting the most sunshine in this less-than-sunny nation) just south of Oslo to Bergen in the west and the Lofoten Islands up north, there is an enormous variety of Norwegian getaway destinations. Book one of these holiday apartments for independent ease.

“Cosy” is an overused word in travel writing. But if you love dogs, snow and mushing, it’s the best word to describe the Jotunheimen Husky Lodge. The lodge, next to Jotunheimen National Park, is a welcome sight at the end of a wintery day. From November to May, head out on a husky-sledding trip – beginners can try just half a day, while hardy adventurers will enjoy the two- or three-day expeditions. Back at the lodge, you can explore the mountain hiking trails on your doorstep before warming up in the sauna.
