Norway – Where Stunning Fjords are Everyday Sights
Norway is perhaps most famous for its spectacular scenery. Pictures of the fjords and the mountain sites of Preikestolen and Trolltunga may be the most common images of this beautiful country. The amazing thing is that that you can visit all of these places and see them for yourself.
Be like a Norwegian and take a hiking trip to the mountains in the summer or to see the Aurora Borealis, (the Northern Lights), in the winter. Or relax on a luxurious ship cruising the fjords, where the amazing sights come to you. The scenery is stunning, with deep blue fjords, flowing waterfalls and sharp snow-capped mountains that tower high above the water. Formed during the ice age, this scenery has changed very little since the land was first inhabited and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Along the sides of each fjord you’ll find small communities, each with its own specialty that reflects its local traditions and its agricultural potential. The microclimate is ideal for growing fruits.
Nature is the focus in this beautiful country and the range of group activities reflects it. Try skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, cycling, zip lining, and hiking all year long.
The capital, Oslo, is quickly developing its exciting architecture, great restaurants and hotels. Enjoy summer evening dinner in the city center along the Aker Brygge wharf while people watching and viewing the boats heading out for the islands.
Europe’s Green Capital for 2019
Norway has been rated as one of the top countries to live in for many years. Thanks to a committed effort to preserve the green spaces of the city and reduce emissions, Oslo has been named Europe’s green capital for 2019.
