Norway

From cosmopolitan cities to natural wonders, Norway is a fantastic country to travel to. Travelers usually skip visiting Norway since it’s highly expensive there. But given the country’s beautiful landscape and wonderful locals, Norway is worth spending time and money on.

Fjords are the main attraction in Norway and there are so many breathtaking ones waiting to be discovered. Some of the must-see fjords in Norway are Sognefjord, Nærøyfjord, Geirangerfjord, and Trollfjord. You can take sightseeing tours from a nearby town and explore the fjords by boat.

A popular tourist attraction in Norway is visiting Lysefjord because of its Pulpit Rock. Also known as Preikestolen, this flat and wide cliff offers amazing scenery of the fjord and it is the best alternative to visit the area other than by boat.

Norway is one of the best countries to see the northern lights. Head to Tromsø in the north, which is the top destination for Arctic expeditions in Norway. While you can catch the aurora borealis in the winter, you can enjoy the sun 24/7 in the summer.

The Lofoten Islands is another popular tourist destination in Norway for a good reason. This part of the country is picturesque and it has many beaches, fishing villages, and fjords to explore. You can see the northern lights as well.

Speaking of picturesque towns, a visit to Bergen is a must when visiting Norway. Make sure to check out Bryggen Medieval Wharf, the Fish Market, and Rosenkrantz Tower in the city. You can go on many hikes from Bergen, especially Trolltunga makes it a scenic hike.

Oslo, the capital of Norway, deserves a few days to wander around. Visiting Akershus Fortress, Vigeland Sculpture Park, Viking Ship Museum, and Aker Brygge are some of the best things to do in Oslo.
