To visit this region of the world - is to look back in time at the evolution of the Earth’s creation where glaciers, ice, fjords and waterfalls are perfectly preserved. Visitors share a love of the outdoors and Norway does not disappoint with plenty of trails to hike or bike, rivers to raft, and snowy mountains to ski, all with various level of difficulty, leaving something for everyone to enjoy.
Carved during the last ice age, over one thousand deep fjords were sculpted from the Earth with deep salt waters, towering cliffs and waterfalls. There are a number of ways to explore these wonders, from hiking high above or gliding along the waters in a kayak or small ship.
While traveling the fjords, be on the lookout for some of the “other” residents of Norway; reindeer, musk oxen and whales are just some of the wildlife that call this area home. Depending on the time of year you visit Norway, you can be treated to a spectacular display of the northern nights, or you can maximize your sight-seeing options during the midnight sun.
For a land with deep history, Oslo is a city of modern proportions with sleek and modern buildings that play off the landscape and delight your senses. Taste the dynamic food culture with top rated restaurants dishing up both traditional and international flavors. Enjoy a number of museums, the most popular being the Viking Ship Museum, home to some of the best preserved Viking Ships.
Another popular destination is Stavanger, headquarters to the country’s oil business. Even with this high-tech industry, Stavanger still holds the old town charm with quant streets and beautifully preserved wooden buildings. A number of fjords, the Stavanger Cathedral and the Sverd i fjell are some of the top attractions for visitors to Stavanger. If you are going to visit one of the fjords in the Stavanger area we recommend you to go to Preikestolen, the Pulpit Rock, with a great overview of Lysefjord.
