Norway is a stunningly beautiful and very unique country located in the northern extremities of Europe. It is bordered by Sweden to the east and Finland to the north.

The country is known for its fjords and numerous mountain areas, making it one of the most spectacularly scenic places in the world. In addition, Norway also has a deep-rooted history, intriguing culture, and delicious cuisine.

The capital city of Oslo is the largest city in Norway and is known for its vibrant atmosphere. Home to an array of museums and galleries, Oslo provides a great opportunity to explore Norwegian culture. From the Medieval Castle at Akershus Fortress to the quirky Vigeland Sculpture Park, there's plenty for tourists to experience.

For those looking for adventure and to take in some of Norway's iconic scenery, then head north to Bergen. This city on the west coast has become famous as a Viking port and starting point for fjord cruises. Surrounded by seven mountains, don’t forget to ride the funicular up Mount Fløyen for some breathtaking panoramic views of Bergen.

As you explore the Norwegian coast, make sure to visit Ålesund – an Art Nouveau town situated on outward-facing islands and set against picturesque fjords. If you have a chance to make it further north, visit Tromsø – dubbed ‘the Gateway to the Arctic’ – where you can spot polar bears swimming around in the icy waters!

When it comes to food and drinks, Norway has much to offer. Reindeer meat (‘Reinsdyrsteik’) is incredibly popular with locals along with traditional dishes such as Fårikål (mutton stew) and Lefse (potato flatbread). For seafood lovers, try the marinated salmon (‘Rakfisk’) or smoked cod roe (‘Boknafish’). Norway produces some great craft beers so make sure to add this trend to your culinary experiences in the country!

In regards to costs, Norway can be quite expensive so budget accordingly. Public transport fees are higher than in most countries but are worth paying if you plan on travelling beyond the capital city. To save money on accommodation, camping sites are widely available throughout the country so you can get closer to nature during your visit!

Overall, Norway provides an unforgettable holiday destination for travellers looking for somewhere out of the ordinary. Its natural beauty and friendly locals make it a great place to visit. Make sure you pack a camera, and a sturdy pair of walking boots and make your way to Norway!
