is a nationwide inbound tour operator located in Voss, the heart of the fjord region in western Norway. We specialise in customised tours and adventures combining natural and cultural heritage with various adventurous activities.
New this year offer are the multi-day tours to sites and attractions of such outstanding natural beauty and cultural importance that they have been included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Our company was established in 2007 by the owners of three local tourism enterprises, - three years after the Norwegian fjords got the top score on a National Geographic survey evaluating how tourist destinations world-wide were coping with the 21st century, and just one year after UNESCO inscribed the West Norwegian Fjords and the Nærøy-fjord Area on its World Heritage List.
Over the course of our decades in the travel industry, we had become concerned that mass tourism with little or no local attachment was increasingly taking over in Norway. Heritage Adventures was founded to be a counterweight to this trend.
We believe that both nature and travellers need an alternative to the existing mass tourism, with its crowds and well-oiled tourist machines.
