Like most Scandinavian countries, Norway is also big on photographic locales. You’ll never tire of pointing your camera at the stunning landscapes that are in abundance here. Norway’s fjords, picture-perfect villages, jagged islands, thunderous waterfalls, and coastline all enwrapped in the Northern Lights, will stir your creative genius like no other.
Norway’s outdoors, however, don’t just evoke the creative genius but also bring out the adventure seekers. Adventure-tourism is big in this part of the world with activities ranging from skiing and snowmobiling in winter to white-water rafting and kayaking down the fjords in summer. Over a thousand fjords flow along Norway’s coast, enticing visitors to their serene waters. Geirangerfjord, Norway’s prime attraction, surrounded by huge cliffs, snow-capped mountains, and cascading waterfalls, is sure to entrap you in its beauty as you cruise down the deep blue waters.
Exploring the areas around the fjords is quite easy too as there are plenty of trails for hiking or glacier walks. The Norwegian ‘right of access’ allows its people and visitors to explore the scenic surroundings with no fear of trespassing on private lands. Hikers will revel in the beauty of the wilderness and mountain regions, characterized by craggy summits and rock formations. Two popular hiking destinations are Kjeragbolten with its suspended rock sandwiched between two mountains, and Preikestolen a flat-topped granite rock rising 610m from the fjord. Both these iconic landmarks are located near one of Norway’s priciest cities, Stavanger.
Norway’s capital, Oslo, has the distinction of being crowned the European Green Capital for 2019, and it’s quite obvious why the crown sits so well. Its commitment to sustainable living and green spaces is evident in everything. However, Oslo is not just about green spaces but also about fantastic museums and iconic monuments. With a burgeoning nightlife, Norway’s capital is gradually adding another feather to its cap, that of Scandinavia’s ‘happening’ late-night destination. Other Norwegian cities that are bound to stir your imagination are Bergen with its gorgeous fjords and rich history, and Tromsø, Norway’s gateway to the Arctic.
