The Kensington Story

Kensington Tours was founded through the inspiration of intrepid explorer and Royal Geographic Society Fellow Jeff Willner.  Jeff grew up in Africa where his parents worked for much of his childhood, and from which came his thirst for travel and an appreciation for different cultures.  Jeff has traveled over 70 countries in search of the extraordinary.  During his travels, Jeff began to imagine a company that used the deep knowledge and personal attention of local English speaking guides to turn trips into extraordinary experiences.

Jeff used his years of experience at the Wharton Business School and at McKinsey & Company to build his vision for Kensington Tours.  Kensington Tours is led by a team of destination experts with real in-country experience and seasoned business executives who have built an award winning travel company that offers trips all over the world.

Cities:

  • Oslo - the capital and largest city of Norway, with museums of national importance, a beautiful setting and lively nightlife and cultural scene.
  • Bergen - Once the capital of Norway, old Hanseatic trading center with a rich culture and dramatic scenery, Norway's second largest city. Wonderfully cute wooden buildings, a magnificent mountain setting and tons of nightlife and atmosphere. This is your gateway to the western fjords. The city has been dubbed "the rainiest city in Europe" with an average of 250 days of rainfall a year. Bring an umbrella.
  • Bodø - The gateway to the magnificent Lofoten islands. And the place of Saltstraumen, the worlds strongest maelstrom.
  • Drammen - Once known as industrial and grimy, but recent refurbishing has made Drammen an enjoyable side trip from Oslo.
  • Fredrikstad - A magnificent old town stands out from the rest of the rather nondescript city. Brilliant as a day trip from Oslo.
  • Kristiansand - The jolly capital of the South.
  • Stavanger - The fourth largest city, and the third largest urban area. Commercially important due to the oil business. The wooden, cobbled central area is one of the most charming places in Norway. Home to one of Norway's medieval churches, you can also visit Iron Age homes, stone age caves, and sites where the Viking kings used to meet at Ullandhaugtårnet. Stavanger is where Erik the Red was born.
  • Tromsø - A magnificent, modern cathedral and absolutely no polar bears roaming the streets.
  • Trondheim - Famous for its stunning cathedral (Nidarosdomen). Wonderful riverside wharfs, wooden buildings and the best student nightlife in Norway give beautiful, leafy Trondheim its charm.

Other Destinations:

  • Atlanterhavsveien - "The most beautiful road in the world". A unique road connected with spectacular bridges surrounded by the wilderness of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Jostedalsbreen - The largest glacier on the European mainland.
  • Jotunheimen - A majestic landscape and home of Norway's highest mountains.
  • Lofoten - Experience the midnight sun in this traditional fishing district in the northern province with islands and mountains.
  • Nordkapp - This cliff is the northernmost point of continental Europe. Excellent place to experience the midnight sun.
  • Sognefjorden - Glaciers, mountains and picturesque towns are but a few of the sights on the Sognefjord. Flåmand Nærøyfjorden (also a UNESCO World Heritage site) are parts of the mighty Sognefjorden system.
