Norway boasts modern conference venues close to nature and a wide array of incentive activities that make for truly memorable meetings. If you are looking for an event guaranteed to inspire, invigorate and re-energise, you will find Norway is a natural choice.

Unique experiences

Norway offers a wealth of exciting incentive programmes for both small and large groups, and provides itineraries with a real sense of adventure and memorable activities that will stay with participants long after they return back home. Whether dog sledding under the northern lights, golfing in the midnight sun or spotting polar bears on Svalbard, an incentive meeting in Norway never fails to impress.

Stunning nature

Norway also boasts conference and meeting venues with nature right on their doorstep, bringing visitors closer to the great outdoors than any other destination. A great diversity of landscapes awaits, from deep fjords and rugged mountain peaks to vast snowy plateaus and a coastline dotted with thousands of islands. So wherever you choose to hold your event, you can expect a stunning backdrop.

A year-round destination

Norway is a year-round destination with warm summer days and a temperate winter climate (not as cold as many believe, thanks to the influence of the Gulf Stream), meaning you can hold your conference or event here whatever the season. The midnight sun in summer and the northern lights in winter will lend your event an additional, unique dimension.
