Norway – Complete country guide

A complete guide to planning your trip to Norway. Write down the tips and enjoy a lot!

Norway, for many years, has been considered one of the best countries in the world to live in. A place where the economy has been steady, the crime rate is low and gender inequality is almost non-existent among its citizens. Sounds like a dream, doesn't it? But Norway is just like that, and more!

For even though its territory is small, it is filled with magnificent landscapes that seem to have been painted by some experienced artist. There are Fjords, waterfalls, mountains and lakes, icy seas and the Aurora Borealis that surround and bring this beautiful canvas to life. What's more, there's also all its historical past, of Viking pride and mythical legends.

The attractions in the country are very varied, especially for adventurers, nature lovers who love to immerse themselves in the parks, parachute jumps on the edge of cliffs or get into kayaks to enjoy the view around a lake. Were you instigated? So just scroll down to find out everything there is to do and where to stay:

What to do in Norway

The capital Oslo, rated Europe's Green Capital in 2019, is known for its vibrant nightlife, art galleries, top-notch public transport and excellent museums such as the Viking Ship Museum, the Kon-Tiki Museum and the Fram Museum. In addition, the green capital offers its visitors the Vingeland park, where you can spend a pleasant afternoon admiring beautiful sculptures or, who knows, enjoying a delicious picnic.

The city of Bergen, on the other hand, is famous for its beauty and rainy climate – considered the rainiest in Europe. There are magnificent fjords such as Sogn and Hardanger, cultural attractions, parks and the charming Bryggen district, a series of colorful wooden houses facing the harbor.

There are other tourist destinations, such as the Cod capital in Alesund, or the iconic landscape of Trolltunga, and even the beautiful Aurora Borealis seen from the city of Tromso.
