There are few places in the world as naturally endowed as Norway – the variety of landscapes and natural wonders in this country will blow your mind. It abounds in picturesque mountains, trickling rivers, and mighty, beautiful waterfalls. Green valleys contrast with glaciers stretching from mountain tops. The seemingly endless shoreline stretching from the north to the south is carved by fjords. The tundra areas of the plains and the north resemble extra-terrestrial landscapes. No matter where you go, you’ll find breathtaking views.

Some people are have an irrational fear of frost, even though summers in Norway are rather warm, without the drawback of midsummer heat. Although the country stretches far to the north and has a very large part of its territory in the Arctic, the climate is rather mild, as the warm Gulf Stream flows along the country’s shore. Perhaps it also somehow affects its inhabitants. Norwegians are (for no good reason) often imagined as cold and reserved, but they are actually quite fun-loving people who aren’t afraid to express their emotions.

Because of the country’s peculiar shape and large distances, it is difficult to visit all of the most beautiful sights in one trip – that’s why tourists often revisit Norway at least once. The most important thing is to pluck up the courage for the first journey, as you will inevitably want to come back. Many first-timers choose the western part of the country, which is known for its diverse and quickly-changing landscapes.

The northern part is equally worth visiting. It is popular among those who wish to experience the exotic North, to visit the scarcely populated great outdoors, to see the midnight sun, and to get acquainted with the indigenous Sami people. The northernmost point of continental Europe, washed by the Arctic Ocean, is also situated in Norway.

In summer, the days are long and even at midnight you can see without artificial light, because the sun does not descend below the horizon. People make the most of the sunlight, because they are aware of the dark that will descend upon them in the winter.

The Lofoten archipelago lying within the Arctic Circle is rightfully called one of Norway‘s most breathtaking places. The spectacular islands, hosting cosy fishing villages, are interconnected with impressive bridges.

At the beginning of the year tons of cod fish are caught by the islanders. They are then tied by the tail in pairs and dried on special racks. If you’re lucky, you’ll see the fins of carnivorous killer whales in the sea and admire the proud flight of huge sea eagles, both without having to book a special tour.
