With its ruggedly beautiful landscapes, cities surrounded by nature and endless opportunities for outdoor adventures and a whole lot of fun things to do, Norway packs a punch.
From the Skagerrak strait, with Denmark on the other side, it stretches north in a slender band, rubbing shoulders with Sweden, Finland and Russia. Much of the country lies inside the Arctic Circle so it’s the ideal place to come to experience the Northern Lights in winter. Behind the rough and rocky coastline, vast cliff faces loom over fjords of extraordinary beauty, while the country also has pretty fishing villages and a clutch of cosmopolitan cities perfect for a culture fix.
From kayaking to cross-country skiing, there's a ton to do here. Let's get exploring.
