(Updated 12.07.21) The Republic of Ireland is now categorised as ‘orange’ in terms of risk.

Exceptions apply for certain circumstances (vital workers, etc). For the Norwegian Government’s latest information about travel to Norway click here.
When it comes to travelling in Norway, nobody else knows the country like Project Travel. That’s because we are the only travel agency in Ireland to specialise in Norway. We are proud to be the leading agent in Ireland for Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Voyages whose ships cruise along the stunning coast of Norway every day of the year, in winter under the Northern Lights, and in summer under the Midnight Sun. We also sell to Hurtigruten Expedition voyages to exciting destinations worldwide including Antarctica, Svalbard, Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, The Galápagos Islands and more.
All our Norway travel packages must include at least one night on a Hurtigruten coastal voyage ship
.Our main focus is on creating tailor-made short breaks and holidays in Norway, all of which include anything from one to 12 nights on an iconic Hurtigruten ship. We combine this traditional method of travel along Norway’s coastline with a whole range of other experiences depending on the season. Norway is an ideal destination for people travelling on their own, for couples and group travel for all ages and interests. Whether you want to visit in Winter to see the Northern Lights, or in Summer when there are a whole raft of outdoor activities to enjoy under the Midnight Sun, then we can help.
You can combine your time on the ship with a range of options, including city breaks in Oslo and/or Bergen, which could include the world famous Oslo-Bergen Railway, perhaps stopping off to stay in the beautiful fjord region, to spending time in the ‘capital of the north’, Tromso, with it’s huge array of Arctic activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and of course, hunting the Northern Lights. We can even include a stay (or just a visit) to a wonderful ice hotel.
For those who want to seek out the Northern Lights and stay on land throughout, Project Travel uniquely offers short breaks in Svalbard, half way between Norway and the North Pole. The best time to travel is during the time of 24 hour darkness (Nov – Jan) when you can literally hunt the Lights all day long! Svalbard is home to more polar bears than people, but for the best chance of seeing one you’ll have to travel during the Summer months and take a Hurtigruten voyage around the archipelago.
The Svalbard cruises are part of the Hurtigruten Explorer programme of voyages. These take you to destinations all over the world renowned for their natural beauty, array of wildlife or unique culture. Each cruise is accompanied by a team of experts who lead the daily landings and deliver lectures on board about the area you are travelling through. Popular destinations include Antarctica, Greenland & Iceland, Alaska and Canada and the Galapagos Islands Other more unusual itineraries include The Northwest Passage, North, Central & South America and the Caribbean.
Project Travel is fully bonded and we are licensed by the Commission for Aviation Regulation #TA0619. Project Travel is also a member of the Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA).
