Norway is one of the best places to visit to see the Northern Lights. This country is blessed with some of the world’s most beautiful green landscape. The sculptured mountains, vast lakes, and the snowy north make this the perfect place to visit if you are an adventure seeker. There is plenty of hiking, biking, northern light chasing and snowmobiling to be done here!
Norway’s capital city Oslo is somewhat of an undiscovered gem. With its cool quirky architecture and Nordic themes blended with modernism, it’s a nice place to visit if you are looking for a change from the fjords and stunning landscape.

What Everyone Does In Norway
What Norway is most famous for is its incredible Fjords which are found mainly on the West coast. A great way to see them is via boat, which will cruise amongst the fjords, meandering in and out allowing you to take in their splendour.
What Some People Do In Norway
Head up north to Lapland to see the northern lights. A great family trip as you can take your children to visit Santa Claus and experiencing the Northern Lights is fun for everyone. Take a snowmobile ride or even a husky tour through the snowy mountains.
What No One Else Does In Norway
You’ve probably planned to spend most of your time outdoors to take in the fresh Norwegian air. One thing we recommend, which not many people do, is to take a road trip along the Atlantic Ocean Road. Experience some outstanding landscape and beautifully sculptured roads.
