Vacations in Norway
The area and getting around
Oslo is the main city through which visitors enter the country, but there are other smaller regional airports further north such as Bergen and Trondheim. Norway is a long, thin country with the tip reaching into an arctic paradise, and the thriving capital city of Oslo in the south. Slashed with staggeringly beautiful fjords, the majority of Norway is undisturbed wilderness and a haven for hikers and those who love the wild outdoors.Culturally strong cities
Norway isn’t just about the views, its major cities are a must-see destination in themselves. Unheralded Oslo is in fact an architectural marvel, with notable not-to-be-missed visitor attractions including the unusual Mortensrud Church and the strikingly modern Norwegian Opera and Ballet. Bergen, Norway’s second city, is the gateway to the fjords and home to Norway’s quintessential multi-coloured wooden houses.
Travellers and activities
Norway’s towering mountains and lush forests starkly, yet perfectly, contrast with the jaw-dropping sights of the fjords and rivers which cut through them. Animal lovers flock to Svalbard, home to the world’s most northern town, Longyearbyen, to see arctic animals such as polar bears, arctic foxes, walruses and whales. Or visit the Jotunheimen National Park, which boasts an incredible 60 glaciers, northern Europe’s highest peak, and hiking routes which lead you past cavernous ravines, mirror-calm lakes and plunging crystal-clear waterfalls. Perhaps you’d prefer the peace of the forest? Around 37% of Norway is forest or woodlands, but go with a tour guide as it’s easy to get lost!Norway for foodies
Norway boasts a surprising array of delicious cuisine. As you’d expect from a country so defined by its coastline, its fresh fish and seafood is second to none. Perhaps you’d prefer to enjoy some famous local forest game? Then make sure to try out moose or reindeer. Norway is known for the creative and unusual ways it preserves food – why not try smoked sheep’s head, gamalost cheese – an aged and pungent offering – or lutefisk, a jelly-like preserve of cod, which, despite its odd texture, has a pleasant, mild taste.
Norway is home to Hell – but don’t worry, it’s just a small town of the same name in the north of the country!
Top 5 travel tips in Norway
A winter-time trip to Norway is incomplete without watching the iconic Northern Lights dance across the sky. The best time to view is between November and March between 8am and 2pm, and the best place to catch them is the city of Tromso in the far north of Norway.2. Meet the Viking explorers
With many of the powerful Vikings having set off from Norway on their journeys to new lands, it’s only natural that Oslo would host one of the most important Viking museums in the world. Featuring three original Viking ships from the years 800 and 900, and myriad artefacts that the Vikings carried with them on their long, hard journeys, this is a fascinating insight into one of Europe’s most successful civilisations.3. Scavenge in safety

And there is a 24/7 free English speaking hotline if you want to check you’ve not picked anything poisonous!4. Take in some local culture at Vigeland Sculpture park
At one of Norway’s most highly-visited tourist attractions, sculptor Gustav Vigeland not only filled the Vigeland Sculpture park in Oslo with over 200 of his original works, but was also the architect of the park itself. If Vigeland’s work grabs your imagination, follow up with a trip to the museum of his early works, and preparatory pieces for the sculpture park.5. Take a boat trip through the Geirangerfjord
